Well, it happened. Adult Services (prostitution services) has been "censored", blocked and banned in the United States.
The “adult services” listing on Craiglist was removed late Friday from its U.S.-based sites and replaced with the word “censored.”
Craigslist did not announce the move and its blog was not updated as of Saturday morning. Craigslist did not immediately respond to e-mail and voice
mail messages seeking comment. Adult services listings continue to be available outside the United States.
The change comes as the service faces growing pressure in the U.S. over sex services advertised on its classifieds network, as well as allegations
that it abets human sex trafficking. While most of the listings on Craigslist are free, it charges $10 to post ads in its adult services section. It
also charges fees in a handful of other areas, including New York apartment rentals.
I never did understand the battle against the oldest profession in the world. You're able to buy alcohol and destroy your liver, buy tobacco and
destroy your lungs, sign up to the military and slaughter civilians in the name of oil, greed and corrupt political ideologies...but selling your body
for sex is a no no.
Did I miss something here?
I know I'm going to get a backlash and plenty of posts on why Conservatives want prostitution to remain illegal in the United States (except Nevada,
it's legalized there).
But in reality, the prohibition of sex for money is illogical.
The government can't make money off street prostitution, that's the main reason why it's illegal in the first place. And you know what? That's not
surprising....sad...but not surprising.
