Lydia Cacho Ribeiro, a Mexican journalist, feminist and human rights activist, uncovered the most sordid secret of Cancún, the idyllic vacation resort, when she denounced a child prostitution and trafficking ring hidden in luxury hotels that was organized by businessmen and protected by politicians and thugs.After writing her book, “The Demons of Eden, ” which exposed corruption involving powerful business interests, politicians, law enforcement and judges in Mexico; Cacho was arrested, beaten and threatened with rape. Cacho talks of her experience here:
To give you some idea of what her book is about:
"Demons of Eden" opens with a 13-year-old girl, whom Cacho calls "Cintia," clutching a stuffed animal as she tells a psychologist how Succar (Jean Succar Kuri) -- the man she called "Uncle Johnny" -- molested her at the age of 8. Afterward, Cintia says, he brandished a knife and threatened to cut her "into pieces." Cacho quotes the girl saying, "He is the devil."Jean Succar is a fine specimen of one of those 'childlovers' - you know, the type like those which post on pedophile message boards like BoyChat about loving children? Perverts like this hate people who expose the disgusting, cruel and inhuman things they do to children for sexual pleasure. Perhaps that's why Santi wants her out of Mexico:
"While she has been unable to succeed in Mexico... I'd recommend her to emmigrate ASAP."
"Everybody knows here that she is just an opportunistic twat, and that she wants to import the fear and paranoia from Zombieland. She lives under the radar here, nobody attacks her or praises here, for her to sink in the darkness.Another BoyChatter, Fidia, complains about the attention Lydia Cacho has received in putting her life on the line to expose child exploitation in Mexico:
She has gotten a couple of prizes here, but so minor that are more an insult than a praise. "
"Why acknowledge her and giver her what she wants, attention."Abraxas A.K.A. Gatekeeper A.K.A. Russell Kinkade, a convicted child sex offender and a defender of child prostitution shows how little regard these people have for childrens lives - attempting to assemble a defense for the exploitation these children had to endure:
What has happened to the children?As a final thought, the perverts will often call themselves "childrens advocates," claiming that society denies "children the right to sexuality" (when what they're really claiming is that society makes it illegal for pedophiles to abuse children) - In contrast what motivates Lydia Cachos activism is a child's right to grow into an adult and to experience a healthy sexual life; free from the scars of child sexual abuse:
Is Ms. Cacho paying the rent and buying food for the families now?
Are there real jobs for the children?
Do the children gain anything from the Wallenberg Medal? Can they eat it? Can they wear it?
"I love sex, don't you?" she (Lydia Cacho) asks, laughing and tossing back her long mane of thick, black hair.
Some of Cacho's rage at the pedophiles she has tracked so obsessively comes from her certainty that they rob victims of normal sex lives as adults. She writes of Emma struggling with sobbing fits when she tries to be intimate. Cintia, Cacho writes, wears four pairs of underwear since being molested by Succar.
"Moved by fear," Cacho writes, "her sexuality had been closed off, her right to pleasure."
