Craigslist personal ads shut down recently, as a result of a new bill which accounted liability to websites for things that third parties do. Now Backpage.com personals and escorts pages have also gone down, with the owners of backpage indicted. The excuse the government is giving was that the site aided in prostitution basically. Of course they also tried to tie in under-aged call girls as the rally cry. Society is steadily marching towards an all work – no play type thing, along with religious zealotry, not unlike that in the Middle East. Adults no longer have the right to freely associate on sites such as Craigslist or Backpage. Tinder, Plenty of Fish, and Date Hookup will probably be next. The Constitution in the United States is under siege. The new thing is to interpret everything as impure unless it is done through the church and marriage, and to evaluate all associations grown adults have with each other, including R rated movies and such, through the lens of “What if a 10 year old walks in accidentally?”
We are reverting towards a crayon society. Like a Sesame Street Lite version of the type of Caliphate you see in the Middle East, but a cross of leftist goody too shoe ‘Metoo’ feminism, which has merged with the religious zealotry of the religious far right, and has formed the perfect monster with which to rid single adults of any type of mature fun they might have with each other, simply because religious ‘family’ people don’t approve. Sorry, but it doesn’t mention in the Constitution that you have the right to freely associate with other adults , unless somehow in theory it offends the sensibilities of some religious asshole somewhere.
