They say that sexual expression, work, and porn are under attack. First Craiglists’ classified ads for sex related interests was dismantled, then Tumblr’s removed adult content, and Facebook and Instagram have explicitly banned porn and anything too risque from their platforms. Twitter may be the latest platform to take a similar stance, leaving sex workers and their admirers on alert due to a change in their policy set to take place on January 1, 2020.

The social media platform announced a changed in its policy:

twitter porn ban

Twitter considers “violent sexual conduct” to be any media that portrays violent actions alongside sexual interactions, “whether real or simulated.” This includes “simulated lack of consent,” or consensually produced porn that plays with nonconsensual themes (better known as “consensual nonconsent”). The site bans “sexualized violence,” including “inflicting physical harm on an individual within an intimate setting” when “it is not immediately obvious” if all participants have given their consent. Given how Twitter defines adult content, it appears these policies also apply to adult artwork such as furry and anime porn.

Twitter further reserves the right to remove any adult material “that depicts violent sexual conduct or gratuitous gore anywhere,” and the platform may permanently ban accounts “dedicated to posting this type of content.” While adult content is still allowed, Twitter warns that any accounts “dedicated to posting sensitive media” may face a permanent suspension if sensitive content accounts for the “majority of your activity on Twitter.” Taken to its logical conclusion, this could turn into a broader ban on NSFW content.

However, it is also being reported that consensual pornography will not be banned. The likes of which people tend to indulge in on OnlyFans and most porn in general. Out.com has provided further details:

“Accounts that simply post adult content either to express their sexuality or their interests will not be suspended,” a Twitter spokesperson said in July. Reached by Out this weekend, a separate Twitter spokesperson held to that, stating that there actually had been no update to the company’s TOS “sensitive content” section, where adult content is regulated, since the initial reports in July, and that users can expect porn to be treated the same in 2020 as it had been in 2019. 

“The only thing updated in November was the reporting instructions,” the spokesperson confirmed, referencing two Twitter threads and a blog post detailing those changes. Both Daily Dot and Gizmodo acknowledge that the updates they reported on were implemented in May but, for some reason, still opted to stoke hysteria by running their new stories as if there would be some changes coming in 2020. Instead, the current policy will continue: consensual pornographic content is allowed when it is uploaded into tweets. Adult content is not allowed in header images, profile photos, or in Twitter live streams — if it is posted there, users could see their accounts indefinitely suspended.

One aspect of the TOS that did get an update in wording that might be pertinent to those who post porn was pointed out by XBIZ. One new clause says “We may also remove or refuse to distribute any Content on the Services, limit distribution or visibility of any Content on the service, suspend or terminate users, and reclaim usernames without liability to you.” The “limit distribution or visibility of any Content on the service” is an update that will go into effect on January 1, 2020. But what does this mean?

The Twitter spokesperson we spoke to said that the policy has always been there, “we have just clarified the language.” What this essentially means is that, this is something that Twitter has long done, and is now putting words to it.

XBIZ surmised — and we are inclined to agree — that this is simply verbalizing the app’s ongoing practice of shadowbanning. For accounts who post primarily adult content, Twitter sometimes makes it more difficult to find their account handles, and even sometimes makes it impossible to search the account’s tweets using the in-app tool. And while that definitely sucks and requires some maneuvering, it does not constitute a looming NSFW ban on the service.

Twitter has yet to make an official, outright statement about adult content on its platform. Honestly, we are in favor of Twitter banning porn on its platform. We feel there is a place and space for everything. Pornhub actually has profiles people can create for themselves and monetize by posting their own amateur porn videos. It would be nice to scroll on Twitter without seeing a miscellaneous penis, vagina, or anus on our timelines–even when you do not follow anyone who does. Needless to say those retweets are dangerous. What do you guys think? Are you here for a Twitter porn ban or no? Sound off in the comments section below!

Metro Atlanta Teacher Under Investigation for Alarming Comments On Controversial Social Media Post

Earlier we reported an Ohio man was arrested for taking a picture of him kneeling on an infant’s neck. The photo reenacted George Floyd’s murder by Minneapolis police officers on May 25th. Now a Metro Atlanta teacher  is under investigation for his controversial comments under the disturbing social media post. 

The teacher, Brian Papin, of Cedar Grove High School in Ellenwood, GA; went onto social media and commented, “Again! Your (sic) doing it wrong.” He then went on to post again, “One knee on center of the back one one the neck and lean into it until death! You saw the video! Get it right or stop fucking around!”

A district spokeswoman stated on Wednesday that Brian is still an employee of the Dekalb County school district. “Administrators were made aware of the disturbing social media posts. The district is currently investigating the allegation.”

Cedar Grove High School’s staff and students are predominantly African-American. The parents and family members of the students there are calling for his termination. “There’s too much going on in the world and our children should not be educated by someone who would speak so cruelly and recklessly. Mr. Papin needs to go” Arlene Jones, mother of a sophomore student at Cedar Grove, stated. “Someone needs to start a petition immediately to get him out of here. I don’t want him teaching any child–let alone Black children–anything if he feels this way. Nothing about those comments is funny. A man died and that child could have been killed or seriously injured. Is nothing sacred anymore? Do we just do anything for Instagram?” Marcus Smith, uncle of a senior at Cedar Grove stated passionately.

The man shown in the controversial picture has since been arrested by Clarke County police in Ohio. The infant, thankfully, was assessed at a local hospital and found to be not injured.

We will keep you posted as this story continues to unfold. In the meanwhile if you would like to voice your concerns with the Dekalb County Board of Education concerning Brian Papin you can reach them here, https://www.dekalbschoolsga.org/.

Isaiah Jackson

The caption on the photo read “BLM now mf.”

Soon after receiving the photo on Tuesday, local police quickly figured out the child’s location and arrested Isaiah, who coincidentally was immediately arrested on an outstanding parole violation.

The child was taken to the local hospital for examination, where he was found to have no injuries related to the incident. The child’s mother stated she had no idea about had transpired.

We are glad this baby will be okay, and are hoping the photographer and the person who held the child’s arms back will be arrested as well. There is nothing funny about this picture–from the act to the caption. George Floyd’s death was tragic and world altering, but had nothing to do with this infant.

This is yet another example of why parents should be very careful of who they allow to watch and spend time around their children, especially infants.

Mary Kay Letorneau, a former teacher, known for sexually abusing her student, Vili Fualaau, and later marrying him has now passed at the age of 58.

Mary Kay, who raped then twelve year old Vili, has died from Stage 4 colon cancer. Her now estranged husband, Vili, revealed she had been quietly battling the disease for months, losing weight, and weakening. She finally succumbed Monday.

Her family released and official statement Tuesday night, “Mary fought tirelessly against this terrible disease,” the Letourneau and Fualaau families said in a statement provided to writer Danielle Bacher. “Mary, and all of us, found great strength in having our immediate and extended family members together to join her in this arduous struggle. We did our very best to care for Mary and one another as we kept her close and stayed close together,” the statement continued.

As aforementioned Mary began her affair with Vili when he was just twelve years old and was sentenced to serve seven years for child rape before becoming pregnant by him twice before he was fifteen, despite efforts to keep them apart. By the time Vili became an adult he petitioned the court to allow them to see each other. A restraining order against Mary was later dropped, but she remained a registered sex offender in Washington state.

Vili and Mary married in 2005, but separated in 2017, still living together and raising their daughters, Georgia and Audrey. Late last year they finally began living separately.

What Mary did was terrible, but we will be praying for her family and all of her children. Her story and legacy still serve as reminder that women too can be sexual predators.
