Virtue-Signaling Strikes Again
« on: March 09, 2017, 10:27:31 PM »
Shameless clickbait.
The government of Tennessee wants to get rid of porn because of "wholesome family values" or some shit. Total bullshit, but it rallies the base.

Remember when the Republicans were actually for limited government and personal freedom?  Me neither.

Thankfully, this law is non-binding, but the message it sends - that porn exposure and "addiction" is a "public health crisis" requiring "policy change at the community and societal level" - is ridiculous and smacks of the sort of moral guardianship conservatives claim they dislike.  Apparently, they make an exception for the fundamentalist Christian Right.

Attempting to get rid of porn is the one thing that is guaranteed to make people riot harder than anything.

I guarantee that all of the legislators who voted for it jack off to porn secretly at home.

By the way, what the hell does "virtue signalling" mean? I keep hearing this word, but the definitions differ wildly when I try looking it up, and when people claim someone is "virtue signalling", the situation often doesn't fit the scenarios I read about.

Yup, the guy in the video made that exact observation. He often describes these people as being so sexually repressed that they have pent-up cum leaking out of their orifices. I don't know where he came up with that, but I've always found the description hilarious.

I bolded that to make the factual point that men who refrain from sex for too long will have cum flow their urine when they pee.

I did not know that. Although in the video's case, the orifices in question are eyeballs and pores.

That's too normal.  These anti-porn people are more like donkey show regulars.  The legislation was re-introduced by Sen Beavers, for crying out loud.  She's a real piece of work.

Virtue signaling ... hitting me with your clutch purse, when an anvil is required.  Don't pussy hat unless you got one.  Virtue signaling is just bread and circuses, a distraction for people who won't actually do ... anything.

Americans will always choose tyranny ... to protect the children ;-((  Give it back to the British.

The horror ... when each of my sperm has a Constitutional right to impregnate some woman's egg!

I'm personally against porn. Usually navel-to-navel.

its also more inclined to increase the usage of private IPs and programs like tor.
