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!

“Trump will reportedly refuse to concede the election.
By now you’ve likely heard that after pulling ahead in Georgia and, most crucially, Pennsylvania, Joe Biden will very likely be the next president of the United States. As you’ve probably also heard, Donald Trump is taking it as well as everyone had expected, ranting and raving about all kinds of made-up fraud, demanding counts be stopped in one state and continued in others, and filing numerous lawsuits that stand little chance of holding up in court because they have no merit (and, in some cases, have led judges to believe the lawyers attached to them have recently suffered traumatic brain injuries). At this point, a quasi reasonable person might say to himself, Okay, I’m going to cut my losses, salvage my last atom of dignity, and admit defeat. But obviously Donald Trump is not reasonable and he has no dignity. So instead he’s decided he’ll keep fighting this thing well beyond the point that it’s hugely embarrassing to do so, and even after that fails, refuse to acknowledge that he lost and that Joe Biden is going to be president.
I wonder how high pitched his screams will be, and whether he’ll be peeing and pooping himself as he gets dragged out of the White House.
I feel sorry for those who might have to put their hands on him, and physically remove him.

“One dark irony of QAnon has always been that the conspiracy theory, which holds that President Trump is waging a war on a cabal of elite liberal pedophiles, rose to prominence on 8chan, an imageboard where users swapped child pornography.
But that irony may have a darker, deeper layer: Mother Jones has uncovered that Jim Watkins, the owner of 8chan and its successor site, 8kun, controls a company that hosted scores of domains whose names suggest they are connected to child pornography.
While Mother Jones did not visit the domains because of strict laws related to viewing child sex abuse material, internet registration and hosting data suggest at a minimum that Watkins profited from domains with names explicitly related to pedophilia—the very thing that QAnon followers say that they’re motivated to end. The domains’ names include terms such as “preteen,” “schoolgirl,” and “child” alongside graphic terms for genitalia and words like “rape” and “love.” It’s unclear what, if anything, is currently being served at the domains. However, an analysis of metadata collected years ago from one by archive.org shows dozens of filenames and links containing highly suggestive terms, including “xxxpreteen,” “children,” and sexual references to girls aged 12 to 15.
Some of the domains date back to the late 1990s and may no longer be active, while others currently resolve to IP addresses controlled by Watkins’ company, N.T. Technology, according to records compiled by Farsight Security, a cybersecurity company that archives historical routing data detailing relationships among domain names, IP addresses, name servers, and other digital assets.”
