I would assume that most people think of pimps and sex traffickers as men but women can be pimps and traffickers too, in some cases they’re even more vicious than their male counterparts. Sometimes they are romanticized by referring to them as madams but there is nothing matronly about them.
Take 20-year-old Jacqueline Pamela Oliver of Seattle, the accused pimp with the phrase ‘Lady Thug’ tattooed on her leg. She’s been charged with prostituting at least two underage girls, ages 15 and 16, on Backpage in the Seattle area. She was turning out the girls while keeping all their money. She was supposedly even living in a motel with the 16-year-old as her ‘girlfriend’. See, female pimps can just be predatory as the men.
Do you know who else made money off of these underage girls? Backpage, of course. They say that have a ridiculous amount of safeguards in place but as far as I can tell they’re not working very well. Like they care.
