The Dirty Dozen is a comprehensive list of the top 12 companies or incorporations that aid in the facilitation and promotion of accessible sex trafficking to the public. These companies are not the ones you might expect, but include things we often use on a regular basis. For example, this year Amazon made the list because of the lack of restrictions they have for merchandise. Basically, you can find anything you want to on their website, nothing is off limits or censored for mature material.
Making the 2017 list this year:
Amazon – No restrictions on merchandise
American Library Association – No internet filters
Amnesty International – Misunderstanding the criminal nature of trafficking
Backpage.com – Featuring ads for underage sex workers
NBC Comcast – No filters on films
Cosmopolitan – Normalizing hypersexualized content
EBSCO Host Online Library – No restrictions of public language and content
HBO – Full fledged pay-per-view pornography
Roku – No restrictions for streaming pornography
Snapchat and Snapcash – Transfer and transactions of child pornography
Twitter – Minimal restrictions of sexual content
Youtube – Minimal restrictions for rape and sexual video
