A bill filed in the state Senate Wednesday by a local senator would require those convicted of human trafficking, or pimps, to register as sex offenders

Sen. Thom Goolsby, R-New Hanover, filed his Sex Trafficking/Sex Offender Registration act Wednesday. It is the second of several bills Goolsby filed this week as he starts to work on his legislative agenda.

North Carolina ranks among the eight worst states for sex trafficking, according to a state coalition. The problem many attribute to the prevalence of major interstates, ports, military bases and a transient workforce, Goolsby said.

"It has just finally come on the radar," Goolsby said. "We have to get North Carolina out of that top 10."

1. Mixed feelings on this.

I do think that the trade has abusive elements, brokers and pimps exploiting vulnerable women and men.

In practice, however, would this R Senator just want to fuck everyone in the trade?

I support the freedom of working girls to work, I abhor the abuse that often happens.
