Internet advocates say the bill may the beginning of a crackdown on free speech online. The law puts new limits on Section of the Communications Decency Act, which has broadly protected internet providers from being held liable for content posted by their users. And, where there is doubt, platforms will err on the side of censorship. The bill passed through both the House and the Senate with broad bipartisan support and now awaits the signature of the president.
Supporters of the new legislation said existing laws have allowed victims, including children, to be bought and sold through blatant ads on internet sites, which has created a surge of exploitation resulting in a multibillion-dollar industry. A video promoting the campaign featured Amy Schumer, Seth Meyers and a host of other stars, saying: The group specifically targeted one of the most notorious sites for sex industry advertising, Backpage.
The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children has said that nearly three-quarters of the 10, reports of potentially sex-trafficked children that it receives every year involve victims who were advertised on Backpage.
But the company has managed to shake off attempts to shut down its posting of potential trafficking ads. Meanwhile, other areas of the internet are feeling the chill that has surrounded the bill. Another website taken offline was Pounced.
A notice on the site said it was purely a personals site and not devoted to prostitution at all. Unlike some of the other solicitations featured, we are genuinely concerned for this listing's author. Maybe this is prudish, but it seems dangerous to let the world know the exact hotel where you'll be staying, that you plan on leaving the door open and that you expect to be brutalized.
Not everyone is into rape. Some people are more into robbery and gay bashing. Chance of Getting Laid: It's also possible that this is one of the cruelest pranks ever perpetrated using the Internet. That whatever educational institutions this man has attended have failed him.
Any attempt to read this listing will confound even the most skilled codebreaker. However, we can glean from the photos that the author has studied a martial art, wears a referee jersey while tending to small children and competes in bicycle races. It doesn't seem like much of a stretch to speculate that his dad is just barely out of the frame of the bicycle race, having just let go of the seat of his bicycle. Where do you start?
First off, any "clein" woman looking for a hook up needs to understand this strange secret language to communicate her interest. For regular human females, the logistics of using email to set up a place to rendezvous with a guy who has no grasp of the written word or any understanding of basic syntax will seem daunting.
And, if that's not enough to scare them off, he mentions tonight, "tomarow" and the weekend as times he's available. Sounds like our little buddy here isn't the most popular mental defective in Houston. I am a well built and drug free gentleman with a strong sexual drive.
I have a desire to be with an expecting mother Pregnant and want to make this fantasy come true. There is something so beautiful about pregnant women and I would love nothing more than to please one. I play no games and ask that you do the same. Right away, we know Damion is a polite guy. He opens by offering thanks for reading his listing and signs off with "sincerely" just to let you know that he's not kidding about wanting some pregger's poontang.
He does mention that he plays no games, which probably means breast-pump bingo is out of the question. From the photos, we can also note that while not chasing women with child, Damion hangs out in abandoned train yards and old water-damaged barns. Clearly, the photos are pretty damning. Had Damion went with a single photo, one might think, "Weird, he looks kinda gay. They've got enough problems without introducing a sexually-confused lover into the mix.
Also, "I am also a massage therapist" is doing Damion no favors. Roughly three out of five guys who post attest to being massage therapists. Basically, it's code for, "I promise to provide half-assed foreplay before wanting to bang. She probably doesn't need the heaping second helping of mommy issues this guy's clearly bringing to the table. Age and body type have intriguingly not been specified. By leading with all physical attributes including age, hair and eye color, height, weight and the description "attractive athletic," we know this guy is proud of what he looks like.
The fact that he wants to meet up for a drink and exchange oral sex in a car, well, that leads one to believe that he probably lives with someone.
If it's a girlfriend or wife, that's one thing. If it's his parents, that's kind of sad, plus it might mean the car he's proposing to make out in is owned by his folks. If any bodily fluids are spilled, be prepared to be handed a Wet- Nap. Meanwhile, he completely forgets to give any sort of indication about what type of woman he's looking for, which gives off the impression that he'll pretty much let anybody gargle his goods.
The fact that he spells maybe, "mabey" not once, but twice is also somewhat troubling. Women who like their sexual organs to be treated like the African monkey trap. If you've been there and done it, you already know and understand what's written below What follows that quote is about words describing "fisting" in extreme detail You can click on the pic for the full ad, if you must.
The verve he uses when rolling out the numbered steps of the process makes it evident that this guy will approach a possible encounter like some sort of demented camp counselor demonstrating macrame. The header reads "Getting to be popular fun! More than likely, it's not the type of experience she wants to have just so she can share the story at the watercooler with her fisting-enthusiast co-workers.
Also, he might want to edit the tidbit about it taking " days for vagina to return to original state. Don't be a chicken. I have rented a residence in North Vegas, off Craig street.
If interested please email me for a appointment. I am very willing to please you. Additionally, it's been indicated that our cross-dresser lives in North Vegas.
And while everyone knows what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, few are familiar with the North Vegas slogan, which is: What happens in North Vegas will haunt your dreams forever.
For someone who's not into female impersonators, there is so much wrong here. But even if that is your cup of tea, you've got to be taken aback by the doll photo. That's some crazy serial-killer stuff right there. Combine that with the freaky flowers-and-curls wig and any sensible person answering this listing would have to be at least a little worried about ending up in a freezer.
You provide the cute and cuddly. Not looking for a one-night thing. I want all of the winter or when one of us finds someone better, whichever comes first.
I won't have sex with you. Cuddles is probably in the wrong section, because he's looking for more than a one-time thing and he's ardent in his declaration that there will be no sex. We can also assume that he doesn't have adequate heat in his home, as his winter-term relationship seems to involve you becoming his human space heater.
You've got a picture of kittens, you've asserted that you're a year-old virgin and the best descriptions you can come up with for yourself is that you have a "high metabolism? Cuddles, but you should consider eHarmony.

Where are all the freaky people flooding to to post about their freaky sex needs now?
Asking for a friend. So sad, I met my wife on craigslist personals a few years ago. After much research, I found Doublelist. Please spread the word. I think it's just a matter of time for every site, before Craigslist and backpage it was Redbook but it was shut down. Heard a lot from this website. It's new and works like CL personal ads. Anyone else having issues getting replies from ads you place on doublelist? Replies are NOT being delivered to the ad poster, test out your own ad and reply to it and see if you get a response!
Apparently some new regulation came out. Google it, I swear I just saw an article about this this morning.
So craigslist is being proactive. Any website with an open, not pre-moderated users' speech section is liable for that speech now, from the whole of reddit down to any forum down to any personal blog with a user comment section. Reddit killed hundreds of subreddits too, the same or next day, by the way, and the decimation is still going on.
So yes they are, but by this logic, all such sites should be proactive and perform a seppuku. This is just a very broad, draconian and amazingly overreaching law.
DOJ is unhappy about it, EFF has been opposing it for months, and the groups who work on helping sex trafficking victims were the most vocal opponents, as driving it underground won't help stop the trafficking, will just make it harder to discover. It's hardly enforceable DOJ lawyers say that, not me , but even absent actual prosecution, the wave of corporate self-censorship is rolling. This is the worst Internet censorship law in decades since the CDA and the citizen's fight against it thanks to which the Sec.
So what kind of kink does your "Friend" want? For us who have average needs, we usually go to Tinder or just hire an escort. If you are not straight, there are other equivalents as well. The group specifically targeted one of the most notorious sites for sex industry advertising, Backpage. The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children has said that nearly three-quarters of the 10, reports of potentially sex-trafficked children that it receives every year involve victims who were advertised on Backpage.
But the company has managed to shake off attempts to shut down its posting of potential trafficking ads. Meanwhile, other areas of the internet are feeling the chill that has surrounded the bill.
Another website taken offline was Pounced. A notice on the site said it was purely a personals site and not devoted to prostitution at all. Now if someone posts an ad looking to exchange sex for something to pounced. In a statement, Microsoft said the new rules, which go into effect on 1 May, are not related to the new bill.
If the files are deemed to violate the policy after undergoing a review, he said those videos may not be watched or shared, but they can still be accessed by their owners. A site called YourDominatrix. VerifyHim, a site devoted to helping sex workers stay safe by screening their clients, also removed its discussion forums. Consensual sex workers say the new law will make the industry less safe , because they have been able to use internet sites without having to wander the streets.
