Internet sex police

I wonder if anybody noticed this little story in the Taipei Times: … 2003204542

It’s a story about the Internet “sex police” in Taiwan entrapping people in online chatrooms. Of course, Taiwan is hardly the only place where this goes on - actually, the USA pioneered this “technology”. Mainland China does a good job of it too.

If everybody’s web browsing, email and chatroom conversations were monitored, I wonder if the entire population of Internet users might not be deemed to be “sex criminals.” Of course, not me - I’m as pure as the driven snow.

Did you notice who the article quotes as speaking out against such police crackdowns? Josephine Ho, the Taiwan professor who was tried and acquitted for publishing bestiality photos and how-to instructions on her university website.

YOU GO GIRL!!! :notworthy:

I read the article but lights started flashing when I saw Josephine Ho mentioned. Feminazi nutter.

By the way, I’m an 18-year-old girl. I’ve been very confused lately; my body has changed so much, and I find myself attracted to my female classmates. I feel so alone. :cry:

Feminazi nutter? Are you bonkers? Here’s a female Taiwanese professor telling her students to “Just do it.” With man, woman, child or beast, it makes no difference to her. It’s all about god’s creatures frolicing with eachother enjoying the pleasures that god has given us. Amen.

For crisakes, Almas, didn’t you read the lesbo threads on forumosa last year??? How can you call yourself a red-blooded MAN when the thought of two young schoolgirls exploring under their plaid-skirts doesn’t make your knees weak. I’d say it’s time for you to lay off woodchopping and pick up a copy of NEXT magazine.

Though no one seems to taking this topic very seriously, I thought it might be nice to include a few links to how our comrades on the other side of the Strait deal with Internet p0rn: … s_student/

All I can say is “thank goodness” that somebody is protecting the moral fabric of the nation. Of course, I’m sure that Forumosa is a bastion of morality. Our members would never ever think to look at a naughty web site, so none of this crackdown-cleanup stuff actually applies to us.

What consenting adults do in their own homes is their business alone, never government’s.

Viewing child porn should be the government’s business, but then again that doesn’t involve consenting adults…

The late Pierre Trudeau, former Canadian Prime Minister, said that “government has no business in the bedroom of the nation”. Of course he’s right. :sunglasses:

This article doesn’t concern child porn. . . or bestiality for that matter. It concerns the allegation that folks in Taiwan use the internet to find sexual partners and the government has taken to entrapping them online by posing as prostitutes and arresting them, and professor Ho says that’s wrong. I agree with her. Entrapment should be illegal and prostitution should be legal.

And another thing, any cop whose job is to pose as a young girl in online chatrooms trying to lure Internet users into attempted sex with him/her is a perverted loser. :raspberry: Why don’t they get off their fat asses and go catch some real criminals?

In order to pass repressive legislation on internet usage it is necessary to raise the spectre of “child porn”. Then you can do anything. We’ve had Reds Under the Bed, now we’ve got Kiddyfiddlers on Every Korner.

Why is it that there are so many people who are so
a) ugly
b) socially inept
c) lacking self-esteem, and
d) don’t know about wanking

that they have to buy sex from children and poor women?

Who is being harmed here?

If you get picked up by the Vice Squad, I’ll send you a box of chocolates in jail. Or maybe you’d prefer a jar of Vaseline?

:bravo: :bravo: :bravo:

Because real criminals are dangerous. Busting pensioners, bored housewives and insecure teenagers for online sex chat is much safer than taking on gangsters with guns.

Of course, the Internet cops (“perverted losers”) will pat themselves on the back, claiming (with much righteous indignation) that they are doing an “excellent job” protecting us from moral debauchery.

I feel so much safer already.

I can’t remember who it was who said this: “Righteous indignation” is 2% righteous, 48% indignation, and 50% envy.


“As you can expect it’s really affecting my sex life. I can’t help it. Each time my wife initiates sex, these ejaculating hippos keep floating through my mind.”

Thing that bothered me about that story – and I meant to write something about it in the paper and forgot – was that, while the situation didn’t seem to fall within the strict definition of entrapment i.e. getting someone to do something criminal they otherwise would not have done, nor does it seem that anything criminal actually took place. I am not an expert but I seem to recall that to arrest for soliciting, you actually have to hand over the money. Once they take the money, then a crime has been committed. But in this case it just seem that the guy agreed on a price, but was busted as soon as he showed up at the rendezvous. This might not be true, and like all these stories translated from the Chinese press there are always a dozen questions left unanswered
