Interesting story by Susan Elizabeth Shepard over at Sports on Earth about the Super Bowl and the alleged sex trafficking and domestic violence stories attached to it. It turns out that neither is all that true. One thing that is true? This:

In the last five years, there have been exactly as many Super Bowl appearances by players accused of sexual assault as trafficking arrests in Super Bowl host cities—six of each—yet far more resources have been devoted to ferreting out the latter.

It’s amazing how stories like this have been around for so long and how willingly people buy into the bullshit. The whole article is worth a read. Check it out.
