Sign, sign, everywhere a sign
Blockin’ out the scenery, breakin’ my mind.  –  Les Emmerson

Lately the number of idiotic “signs of sex trafficking” have been proliferating to absurd levels; just recently, for example, the Department of Homeland Security (a name which makes me feel like a fascist just for typing it) told hotel staff that all of the following were to be included in the already-bloated “sex trafficking sign” list:

  • garbage cans containing many used condoms
  • frequent use of “Do Not Disturb” sign on room door
  • excessive foot traffic in and out of a room
  • “excessive sex paraphernalia” in room
  • an “overly smelly room” that reeks of “cigarette, marijuana, sweat, bodily fluids, and musk”
  • a guest who “averts eyes or does not make eye contact”
  • individuals “dressed inappropriate for age” or with “lower quality clothing than companions”
  • guests with “suspicious tattoos”
  • the presence of multiple computers, cell phones, pagers, credit card swipes, or other technology
  • the presence of photography equipment
  • minibar in need of frequent restocking
  • guests with too many personal hygiene products, especially “lubrication, douches”
  • guests with too few personal possessions
  • rooms paid for with cash or a rechargeable credit card
  • “individuals loitering and soliciting male customers”
  • “claims of being an adult though appearance suggests adolescent features”
  • refusal of room cleaning services for multiple days

I might point out that when I travel, I leave the “Do Not Disturb” sign on the door the entire time and don’t take maid service unless I feel it’s absolutely necessary.  But I’m a “prostituted woman”, so there you are.  Anyhow, it started me thinking; just how many of these moronic “signs” have been claimed so far?  Here’s a list of all the ones I could easily locate: Information Overload

There are probably others I’ve missed, and I’m sure more will be added before the collapse of the panic, so I’ll copy this into a static page for easy updating.  Happy pimp-and-victim-hunting!
