“Why are Tumblr and Facebook cracking down on sex so much? And why is Facebook in so over zealous about it? It’s all Apples fault!” Etc etc
I can explain all. It is largely the fault of a set of US laws called SESTA and FOSTA.

Yep. When FOSTA/SESTA was being debated and nearly everyone was so ecstatic about this horrible law, people like me were warning what would happen. We were told, “Nah, it’ll just prevent sex trafficking.” Supposedly, we were over-reacting and just plain wrong.
Then FOSTA/SESTA passed, it increased trafficking (also predictable) and simultaneously made it harder to combat and meanwhile caused real repression of freedom of expression and marginalized people which is only going to get worse. Far worse.
Which, you know, was exactly what we few said would happen.
I sincerely wish people were smarter. Stupid-ass motherfuckers, many of whom were liberals. Fuck all ya’ll.
