Thank you to Kamil Beylant for this link.
“In October 2020, Twitter released a substantially revamped version of its terms of service on child exploitation. Although most of the changes simply clarify its existing ban on content that features or promotes child sexual exploitation, there is one specific change that goes beyond this, creating a new and separate policy violation for “promoting or normalizing sexual attraction to minors as a form of identity or sexual orientation.” On the face of it, this unusually specific policy is a callback to a popular “normalization of pedophilia” trope used by self-styled “pedo-hunter” activists to attack progressive causes. But Twitter’s adoption of this pseudo-scientific concept does more than provide new ammunition for vigilantes; it could also put the safety of real children at risk. To explain why, and to trace how we got to this point, let’s take a step back into history.”
I’m not terribly thrilled with the predictable throwing “pedosex” under the bus, nor by implication, those who can in fact defend it…This type of smugness has always been deeply offensive in my book.
These types of groups have their own integrity deficits, and they still go along with populist dogma in their own ways.
I’d be more excited if it were at least in a more neutral forum…but, thank you for that link, Kamil.
Of course…it’s heavy on the VP angle…which of course, it would be since this is the wing closer to being controversy sterile…and more professionals would attach themselves to it publicly, since it’s not automatic career suicide.
To be fair, it makes sense they’d highlight that “even this is being attacked”.
I’m “glad” this happened and is being documented…It underscores something I’ve been saying all along…Being an “anti contact map” does nothing to shield you…On the contrary, they “acmaps” appear to have been the most viciously targeted out of all of us…on average.
All this BS some “acmaps” have touted about “common ground with antis”, and “anti allies”…you have to be a brain dead idiot, to buy into any of those lies.
Some are satisfied enough with tolerating you, when they believe they have you submissive to their own, strict ideology…But MAPs should not misunderstand this…”you” are agreeing to be kept on their leash…Frankly, it’s demeaning in every meaningful way.
The moral to this situation is starkly clear…MAPs can try to put themselves forward as sterile and clean as they like, even agreeing and chanting “anti pedosex” slogans, and spewing venom at “pedosex”…The lying fanatics will come down on you even more fiercely, because you’re appearing “to much like them”…and they see you as a trojan horse.
It is always best to be up front and honest about all aspects of “pedophilia [etc]”, even when individual MAPs might not be comfortable with the truth.
A lot of MAPs, frankly, are dupes for the populist dogma.
It’s time to call out the hysterical manipulators and liars, for what they are…and tell them all to go piss up a rope…
MAPs…Stop coddling these AssHoles, who are hell bent on destroying you!
