Girl who was raped 43,000 times turns to public speaking to help other sex slaves
Girl who says she was raped 43,000 times turns to public speaking to help other sex slaves
A woman who estimates she was raped more than 43,000 times after she was forced into prostitution at 12-years-old is now dedicating her life to help other sex slaves.
WARNING, DISTRESSING CONTENT
Karla Jacinto said she was forced to have sex around 30 times a day for four years after she was kidnapped and forced into a life of sexual servitude.
Now 24, Ms Jacinto has turned to public speaking in an effort to share her story and help others trapped in the same desperate situation.

“I never imagined that the girl who used to stand on the corner wearing high heels, who was considered a prostitute, would feel so strong,” she told CNN’s Freedom Project.
“Nowadays many people listen to me.”
Ms Jacinto’s nightmare began when she met an older man who swept her off her feet and showered her with gifts.
But her Prince Charming was a pimp, who changed his tune after only three months and forced her to work the streets of Guadalajara, in Mexico.
"Some men would laugh at me because I was crying. I had to close my eyes so that that I wouldn't see what they were doing to me, so that I wouldn't feel anything," Ms Jacinto said.

Last July, she spoke in front of Pope Francis during a conference on modern day slavery.
She hoped her message opened the eyes of parents to the truth, that there are people out there who will steal their children away from them.
"These minors are being abducted, lured, and yanked away from their families. Don't just listen to me. You need to learn about what happened to me and take the blindfold off your eyes," she said.

Like the spoilt child she is, she will not be happy till she destroys herself from within and breaks your heart.

It used to upset her dreadfully but now she quite enjoys it.
[Tell this to a militant feminist of your acquaintance and wait for the reaction.]
I've never read that expression before. From where does it originate? English colloquialism?

Dimitri — who asked NBC News not to use his real name — is one of dozens of teenagers in the Macedonian town of Veles who got rich during the U.S. presidential election producing fake news for millions on social media.
The articles, sensationalist and often baseless, were posted to Facebook, drawing in armies of readers and earning fake-news writers money from penny-per-click advertising.
PT Barnum would have had a field day with this....just sayin'
