Don't ask me what that means. It's in a language I don't recognize.

It's probably obscene. I think so ... from the pictures.

Young women. Scantily clad, some voluptuous, some rather immature looking, but almost all with inviting looks on their faces. They appear all to be Asian of possibly various nationalities.

When I saw the link on a rightwinger's facebook I thought it might be an obscure book o religion but I could not Google the title.

So, I clicked the icons. Even in my blatant naivite I recognized the elements of sexual trafficking ... but I need expert corroboration.

I was innocently doing a wee bit of research on the West Virginia high school story -- high school student objects to a required lection on abstinence-only:

CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- A student at George Washington High School asked for an injunction in Kanawha Circuit Court against the school's principal Monday, after she alleges he threatened to call the college where she's been accepted and tell them she has "bad character" for speaking up against an abstinence-only assembly held at the school last week.
A person named John Stebner, an attorney at Latham and Watkins LLP (a law firm which kind of fits into a picture with trafficking of very young females) , names Metode Hebat Perkasa as one of his favorite books and has this to say about comprehensive sex ed and access to contraception:
WOW! Libtarts are say "attacking women" I guess murdering female babies isn't a attack!
Anyway, to follow the links back I was checking out the HuffPost article on Katelyn Campbell which linked to the ThinkProgress article on the dangers of abstinence-only sex ed and checked Mr. John Stebner on his facebook and wound up in a damned sex trafficking site.

For a gander at the law practice of Latham and Watkins, look below the gap:

The New York office handles capital markets, M&A, public offerings, private placements, high yield finance, restructurings, recapitalizations, divestitures, and technology transactions. The department includes leading practitioners in derivatives and other sophisticated financial products.  Our New York-based Latin America Practice has advised on hundreds of transactions.  

Latham lawyers in New York represents financial institutions, borrowers, sponsors and developers on transactions including leveraged acquisition finance and working capital financings, asset and real estate securitizations, structured finance bank acquisitions, leveraged leasing, and restructuring transactions. The New York Project Finance group delivers unique expertise for all aspects of financing and developing large-scale projects throughout the world.

The New York Litigation team minimizes litigation risks through counseling on defensive business strategies.  When litigation is necessary, our litigators work to identify and leverage opportunities for early and efficient resolution.  They are deeply experienced in complex trials, appeals, arbitrations, and regulatory and enforcement matters, and have successfully handled bench and jury trials in nearly every circuit, including the Federal Circuit, and in state courts around the US, including all courts in New York.  

The New York Tax Department has a highly sophisticated and diverse practice, which counsels corporations, LLCs, partnerships, REITs, banks, venture capital and financial advisory firms on US federal income tax and employee benefits issues.

The practice at Latham and Watkins sounds like the stuff that the Rolling Stone likes to report on. And, I wonder if I shouldn't submit a complaint to the FBI on the website Metode Hebat Perkasa.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
