Porn sites troll Republican delegates voting on new anti-porn rules 148

Some of the world’s largest tech sites are making thinly-veiled digs at the Republican Party, which declared internet pornography a “public health crisis” earlier this week.

According to CNN, the Republican Party thinks that something needs to be done about porn on the Web (yes, again, really) – ultimately linking it to the downfall of humanity (OK, slight exaggeration there, but not much) and as responsible for incidents of child sexual abuse and human trafficking.

“Pornography, with its harmful effects, especially on children, has become a public health crisis that is destroying the life of millions. We encourage states to continue to fight this public menace and pledge our commitment to children’s safety and well-being. We applaud the social networking sites that bar sex offenders from participation. We urge energetic prosecution of child pornography which closely linked to human trafficking.”

Porn sites, naturally, take a different view of things. Adults viewing (legal) sexually explicit material isn’t something that should be legislated against.

To show exactly what they would be voting against, fetish site Kink gave 2,472 Republican delegates free access to all its content, which is a generous deal considering memberships now encompass all its sites.

xHamster took a slightly different tack to draw attention to the assault on internet porn. It revealed the top search terms and most-visited categories in Republican-dominated states, like Texas. Overall, “mature” and “cuckold” were the most popular categories. “Cuckold” also seems to have been the most popular search in some of those states too.

The full Republican committee will debate the issue further next week.
