Traditional sluts who still used Craigslist’s casual encounters section are pouring out a bottle of Wet Platinum lube today over the loss of a classic ho shit tool. Craigslist has closed the sticky, greasy doors of their personals section (which includes casual encounters and missed connections) after U.S. Congress passed an anti-sex trafficking law to make it easier for victims of sex trafficking and prosecutors to sue and go after sites for posting ads from sex traffickers. While the bill was presented as a way to fight sex trafficking, it’s messing with sex workers and other people just looking to bone another consenting adult. You all better collect possible fuck pieces on Grindr, Scruff, Tinder and AdultFriendFinder before they’re next!
CNN says that on Wednesday, the Senate voted 97-2 to pass the bill, which is being called the Fight Online Sex Trafficking Act (FOSTA). Techies fought against the bill, saying that it’s wrong to make sites responsible for what people post, and that a law like FOSTA messes with free speech on the internet. The Electronic Frontier Foundation says that the bill is going to do the opposite of what it’s supposed to and now sex trafficking victims, along with sex workers, are in more danger.
“Internet sites provide a digital footprint that law enforcement can use to investigate trafficking into the sex trade, and to locate trafficking victims. When websites are shut down, the sex trade is pushed underground and sex trafficking victims are forced into even more dangerous circumstances.”
The bill is now going to Trump who will sign it.
Craigslist is taking no chances, and any old dude who went there this morning to post an ad for a straight guy looking to get sucked off by a generou$$$ mature man was hit with this message:
US Congress just passed HR 1865, “FOSTA”, seeking to subject websites to criminal and civil liability when third parties (users) misuse online personals unlawfully.
Any tool or service can be misused. We can’t take such risk without jeopardizing all our other services, so we are regretfully taking craigslist personals offline. Hopefully we can bring them back some day.
To the millions of spouses, partners, and couples who met through craigslist, we wish you every happiness!
It’s the end of a ho shit era… or is it? Hmmm… I can always post something like this in the “free” section on Craigslist:
I am giving away a very used and worn out ottoman. My ottoman has a giant hole in the middle and I’m looking for someone who is interested in fixing it up by plugging that hole. You’re gonna need to plug it with something big and thick because the hole in my ottoman is huge and loose. Let’s meet in public first so you can decide whether or not you can handle fixing my ottoman. Oh god, this is so stupid and confusing. I’m just looking to get fucked, okay!?
Speaking of getting fucked, the politicians just did that to themselves. Did they even think this through? Now where are they going to easily find dick to do on the hush? Back to tap dancing in a public bathroom, they go!
