Some people use "insult" as a means of achieving power over others.

Oh! I had forgotten that. That tactic should never work, but apparently many people are vulnerable to insult as a power play. I certainly hope it does not work here.

To keep things more on topic, some may be interested to know that the UK's proposed 'porn ban' has been cancelled.

...
Were they worried the banana at school was going out of business? It's not as if teenagers (or younger or that matter) are never going to find out what sex or porn is, so not sure what the UK government is trying to "protect children" from. It's not as if a pedophile is going to check to make sure their victim is of "legal age", let alone holds a "license to view porn". I remember when barely anyone had the Internet looking at porn before I was even 18, it's not as if I didn't know what sex or porn was beforehand. I doubt you need to be in high school to find out what sex or porn is. No wonder their plan failed. I also take it they've never heard of a VPN before?

Gotta love the picture in that link though... look what I've found

All your points are valid. The UK government does not really care about 'the children', it just cares about votes. A plan like this was full of holes [pun unintended], the main one being that any kid with some internet know-how could circumvent the ban in a matter of seconds. A secondary reason behind it was closer monitoring of UK citizens' internet activities. It was a surveillance/vote canvassing plan thinly veiled as a moral benefit and should have greatly worried anyone who cared about internet freedom.

The first step into my "heart" about doing anything for "the welfare of children" coming from any activists or politicians or whatever will always be an incredibly strict, if not complete blanket ban on circumcision first.
There is no other way into my approval without this gatekeeper.

I believe nobody who claims to have the welfare of children in mind but shrinks back at even the notion of banning circumcision for any reason, especially non medical.
I also don't believe anyone who uses the word "kid" or "Kids" for human children in a serious context, I already don't like it in a colloquial settings, but when the situation is supposed to be serious?
Not a chance for me to even begin to believe the party. Can't even call them the word for human offspring? Yeah, not interested, next.

Are you sure you're in the right thread?
Or is circumcision of children your idea of porn???

Please don't. This thread is about adult porn.

That's equivalent to the carbon footprint of Spain! Of this, about a third is porn. On-demand services like Netflix account for another third.

The figures come from The Shift Project, a European think tank for transitioning to a post-carbon economy.



Co2 is plant food......... So if you think about it, the more people breath and huff and puff in porn, the more food plants will have to consume to thrive which will create more Oxygen for Humans.

What's the bad in that ?
