For example, a dangerous attitude is contained in the term prostitots. This term is often used by people who claim to condemn sexploitation. I say "claim" rather than "are" because this judgmental labeling is a key part of sexploitation. This labeling of small girls as miniature prostitutes solely because of how they look semantically approves of sexploitation while condemning those who have this label slapped on them.
This type of label normalizes the sexual trafficking of girls and makes those who benefit from the prostitution of children invisible. This is reinforced by all those who claim that girls who look too sexy should expect to be seen as offering themselves sexually to whomever sees them. When modesty is put forth as rape prevention then sexploitation has been supported to the point of presenting certain rapes as normal. This again reinforces the idea that most rapists are not the root cause of the rapes they commit.
When people talk about the goal of living in a society where anyone, child or adult, could walk naked down the street without fear of rape they are talking about living in a society free of sexploitation. Yet many people still support the idea that nakedness or even a bare midriff can cause rape.
Boys and men who exploit girls according to their perceived sexualness are often falsely presented as passive entities who are controlled by the behavior of girls. A PSA called Everyone Knows Your Name released in 2007 normalized troubling responses from boys and men as it sought to educate girls about online safety.
According to RAINN 15% of sexual assault and rape victims are under the age of 12 and 34.2% of those sexually assault juveniles are family members and 58.7% are acquaintances. If we are to effectively prevent these crimes and the actions which support them we need to change not only the visible manifestations of sexploitation, we need to change the attitudes which contributes to people committing sex crimes with the belief that they are doing nothing seriously wrong.
