Transcription: 
There is no difference between sex trafficking and prostitution. It is the same thing. The words sex trafficking were created to make it more palatable to the public because the word prostitution had such a dirty connotation. The do-gooders who have come to this issue find it difficult to say the word prostitution, so they call the children sexually exploited or victims of human sex trafficking. It's so sad, because the children who are involved in prostitution with pimps don't even know that the do-gooders are talking about them. And when they find that the words sex trafficking applies to their activity as prostitutes, they say what do they think of me if they can't even say the word prostitutes, if what I do so offends them so much.
