Microsoft will make it less easy for parents to spy on gay teens

After privacy concerns were raised by Pink News, Microsoft has indicated it will modify the "Family Settings" in Windows 10 to make it less likely that parents will find out their child is gay before he or she is ready to tell them.

PinkNews last month raised concern about Windows 10’s ‘activity reports’ feature, which is enabled by default for users who have set up registered family accounts – sending weekly breakdowns of children’s browsing history to their parents.

Testing the feature using a fake family, PinkNews found that a child’s gay-related search history and visits to LGBT support sites were flagged in emails sent to parents, alongside detailed information about gay pornography the teen had attempted to view.

According to Microsoft’s Terry Anderson, “As an example of direct response to feedback we’ve received, all Windows 10 customers will receive an upcoming update to family features, with default settings designed to be more appropriate for teenagers, compared to younger children.

“Additionally, we’re working on ways to further enhance the notifications that kids and parents get about activity reporting in Windows.”

And of course, parents who trust their teens can still opt out of Family Settings altogether. How about that?

Porn haters up their game

Porn kills love, don't you know?

You may have thought the war on porn was over, and porn had won. For many years religious conservatives fought the spread of pornography on the Internet, demanding controls and censorship measures of one sort or another. But in Western countries, constitutions guaranteeing freedom of expression overrode concerns that easy access to skin flicks would lead to the imminent decay of society. And guess what? Society is just fine, or at least its ills cannot be linked to dirty movies.

Conservative religious groups still consider porn to be evil, and now a group called Fight the New Drug, likely funded by the Mormons, has launched a multipronged campaign for the hearts and minds of Americans, called  Porn Kills Love.

According to the campaign's very slickly produced website, pornography is harmful in countless ways. Some pretty broad accusations are made, with little objective proof.  Under the "Get the Facts" section we discover:

- porn is like a drug;
- porn kills love;
- porn ruins your sex life;
- porn leaves you lonely;
- porn hurts your partner;
- porn leads to violence;
- porn hates families;

Yipes! If there were any truth to these accusations we'd be feeling pretty bad about now.

In addition to the snazzily illustrated website, there is tons of swag, notably some quite trendy (but for the message) t-shirts. There's also a blog, a call for grassroots volunteers and lots of pictures of enthusiastic porn-hating youth. Website visitors are encouraged to take "The Fighter Pledge," which emphasizes persuading others of the harmful effects of porn while remaining non-judmental (quite the challenge).

We have to hand it to the Mormons, or whoever is behind the website: it's a lovely work of propaganda. Too bad the result will be making people feel bad about something as harmless as whacking off to images of other people having sex.

Grindr and Tinder react to AIDS Healthcare Foundation billboards

The AIDS Healthcare Foundation (AHF) -- best known for its initiative to make the production of bareback porn illegal in California -- is again attracting attention in its bid to raise awareness of STI's. Its latest salvo in the war against sexually transmitted infections is a billboard campaign that explicity links popular hook-up aps Grindr and Tinder to chlamydia and gonorrhea. 

Not surprisingly, Grindr and Tinder are upset.

Grindr dropped AHF as a paid advertiser, saying, “We were surprised at the approach [the foundation] took, and paused the campaign in order to speak with them and assess our relationship.”

Tinder has demanded that the foundation remove all references to the hookup app from their billboards and that it cease making “false and disparaging statements against Tinder.”

“They’re tone deaf,” Michael Weinstein, president of AHF, told the Guardian. “It would have been much wiser for them to say that they’re concerned about their customers and look forward to working with us to help people get the checkups that they need.”

Currently, there are 12 billboards and 45 bus bench ads in Los Angeles. The AHF says it plans to expand the campaign to New York and south Florida.

Perhaps Mr. Weinstein should have taken his own advice. Would it not have more effective to approach the hookup aps and work together to insure that their users are aware that sexually active people should get tested for STDs once in a while?

We wonder if this was a calculated decision to get free publicity. Is Michael Weinstein the Donald Trump of sexual health?

Grindr trick look young? Ask for ID!

Four Michigan men are facing felony charges after arranging to hook up (separately) with a trick who turned out to be a 15-year-old teen.

Important details about the case, such as why the boy was on Grindr and if the men knew he was underage are not yet known.

One of the accused is only 18 himself; the three others are 20, 24 and 27.

Two of the men are being held on a $500,000 bond; the other two have not yet been arrested.

The men face charges ranging from accosting a child for immoral purposes, using a computer to commit the crime, possession of child sexuality abusive material and assault with intent to commit sexual penetration.

The alleged encounters were reported by the parents of the teen, who is now 16.

Don't assume your trick is legal just because Grindr is supposed to be for grown-ups. If he looks like a boy, ask for ID.

The latest - even funnier - Kim Davis parody

Kentucky County clerk Kim Davis's refusal to marry same sex couples has resulted in countless parodies skewering her hypocrisy. Here is a very well made one, to the tune of Gilbert and Sullivan's  "Major General's Song," from Pirates of Penzance. Unfortunately, it was released just before the revelation that the Pope had had a secret meeting with Davis while on his American visit, so Francis does not appear in the video.

Smithers to come out to Burns

Mr. Burns' slavishly devoted assistant, Waylon Smithers, will finally come out to his boss in Season 27 of The Simpsons.  We could never figure out what Smithers sees in the decrepit and evil Burns; he must be attracted to power.  Mr. Burns has so far been oblivious to Smithers' true feelings.

According to executive producter Al Jean, “In Springfield now, most people know he’s gay, but obviously Burns doesn’t. We deal with that in two episodes. … We actually do a lot with Smithers this year; he gets fed up with Burns not appreciating him and considers his options.”

Somehow we think that Mr. Burns will not react by tenting his fingers and uttering "Excellent."

Russia might sue Apple over gay emojis

Russian officials are considering suing Apple for violating the country's "gay propaganda" law because of same-sex couple emojis.
Leaders in Russia’s Kirov region made the decision in response to attorney Yaroslav Mikhailov's complaint that the company was using the emojis to promote same-sex relationships to children.
"The police concluded that my complaint was justified, and opened a case on an administrative offense," he said.
Apple could be fined up to 1 million rubles ($15,000) for violating the law, and could be blocked from any business activity in the country for up to three months. 
Russia: desperate to become the world's stupidest nation.

Group will fight for the right to fuck for money

National Coalition of Rent Boys and AlliesA new group has formed to help protect male escorts from prosecution.
The non-profit is called The National Coalition of Rent Boys and Allies (NCORB) and was established as a response to Homeland Security and the NYPD's raid on the offices of RentBoy.com in New York City last month.
Fort Lauderdale-based 1st Amendment attorney Norm Kent started the organization, and will be joined by mr Pam and law student Stephan Ferris as part of the group's leadership.
"The Department of Homeland Security has initiated a questionable legal action which has terrorized thousands of men who were lawfully trading their time and companionship for legitimate compensation,” Kent said. “There is a need for these men to have a collective voice and open forum to speak out against the raid and for their rights."
The NCORB website will be primarily a resource center, bringing together different groups mandated to help sex workers. Links to online commentary concerning the current struggle to legitimize escorting will also be made available.
There is a membership component to the site, which NCORB says will entitle people to "discounts at various performance related websites, and regular email blasts and news alerts." A database will also be created to help shield an escort's real name, allowing him to conduct business under a pseudonym. 
Rent boys are expected to contribute $500, $250, or $100 depending on their level of membership. As well, allies will be asked to cover more of the costs with memberships ranging from $1,000 to $5,000.
It looks like this could be the next big battle for sexual liberty. The question is: can the US shed enough of its prudish ways for this to work out in favor of the sex workers?
