Apparently eBay is banning sales of nearly all adult content a month from now. I wonder what prompted that.

Conservatism. The recent surge in puritanical garbage is funded by zealots as a means of crushing queer voices painted up as Think Of The Children™, just as it always has been. American bigots more or lost their war on gay folks when same sex marriage was legalized, so they retooled their efforts (and pooled their money) to regulate historically queer spaces out of existence, and this has the bonus effect of also being a means of enforcing misogyny. You can also trace the surge in transphobic legislation to a handful of deep pocket Concerned Christian Conservative groups that funded the original gay panic.

You can be an absolute shitgibbon on twitch and youtube for example, but if a bunch of pissbaby gamerbros report flood someone's channel because :siren: bra strap showing, low cut top :siren:, that person goes down long before KoolKingKoopa88 ever will even if they've not broken any rule at all. Such is the folly of centralizing the internet.

The end goal of these folks is to regulate queer people out of existence and turn America into a dominionist theocracy. It's why the nazis burned the Institute of Sexology immediately. Also worth keeping in mind that there is substantial overlap between queer folks and sex workers. Incidentally, it's super cool that one of the champions of the recent resurgence in this movement is the loving vice president. Not to say she's a dominionist herself, but she sure built a career on destroying the lives of sex workers and regulating their industry back several steps because Are Valuez painted up as, once again, Think of The Children.

Is it not woke to ask what the vintage nude air fresheners smell like, or what they were supposed to smell like back in the day?

Suppressing and outright censoring sex work is pretty anti-woke. It's not an accident that certain elements of the internet hijacked woke as a means of masquerading their actual intentions of stifling BIPOC voices. It's a great way to slowly radicalize people imperatively over time.

... uh, I was making a joke about air fresheners, because I've been around naked bodies before, and in theit natural state, they ain't 100% fresh. Not sure if want my truck to smell like naked people from the 1970s.

Not sure how that is connected to sex work. I want to be clear, I was not at all talking about sex work, BIPOC voices, or anything radical. More like, old Hustler magazine scratch & sniff sticker stuff.

Oh I know, just what ebay is doing has nothing to do with being woke.
