(Dmytro “Henry” Aleksandrov, Headline USA) The government of Berlin, Germany, caused outrage from locals after it offered a graphic picture book that normalizes prostitution to children via its official website.
Equal Opportunities Officer Kerstin Drobick said that the book is designed to explain prostitution to children of families who live in a red-light district of Berlin.
Drobick also tried defending the sexual grooming of children by saying that “primary school children and other people” participated in a “community project” to help create the graphic book.
The book was written from the perspective of a child named Maryam, whose family relocated to Germany from Syria, and her schoolmate, Martin. Both were observing and talking to Rosie, a woman from Bulgaria who is in the sex trade.
The author of the book justified prostitution through Rosie by saying that men use prostitutes because they are lonely, which, apparently, makes the sex trade a legitimate and important field.
“Most of the time it’s like this: Men want to put their penis in my vagina. A few times in and a few times out – and you’re done. There’s nothing more to it than that,” Rosie tells the children.
The author of the book also told that Rosie gives condoms to the men she is about to have sex with — a statement that is accompanied by a disturbing drawing of a smiling penis with a pink condom on it that was probably drawn by a child.
Ironically, even though the book tried to portray prostitution as something good, the quotes at the end of the book from children and other young people who live in areas where street prostitution takes place showed that they see sex work as something negative.
Elly Arrow, a German advocate for the abolition of the sex industry, called the whole book “schizophrenic,” adding that the children who were quoted in the book clearly don’t want to see the degenerate industry normalized.
“They’re suffering, scared of johns and pimps… German politicians are happy to enable prostitution and overlook criminal elements, as long as they can rake in tax euros, its not happening in their backyard and it’s overwhelmingly the mothers and daughters from impoverished Eastern European families standing by the street side,” she said.
