offshore said...how is being gay automatically sexual? If so Dell should offer option to ban all the straight sites too...
That gets to the heart of the matter.
Article: "It means sites which have no sexual content can be blocked – including in workplaces, schools, colleges and other public places. Even sites which provide support to vulnerable LGBTI kids and adults are openly included in the system.
The attitude is somewhat understandable but not at all acceptable.
What is says is that because we've been excluded from the conversation for so long (like, for practical purposes, eternity) that str8 people forget that they are being sexual beings whenever they discuss their own sexuality, i.e. their marriages, their having children, you know, the products and expressions of sex. Their own sexuality has become so run of the mill for them that they don't notice it. And so they think their kids don't notice it either when the whole while they are engraining heterosexuality into their kids while at the same time inducing the message that any other sexuality is outside that realm of normalcy.
So they think that it's just when people mention something gay--even if that mention is not overtly sexual as in expressions of a hard on--that the mention of gay is suddenly sex to be silenced but that the mention of str8 somehow is not, even though, of course, it is the very same thing.So this gay website blocking tool is Dell cybernizing Russia's anti gay law
...http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LGBT_rights_in_Russia...that bans the distribution of "propaganda of non-traditional sexual relations" to minors
Fuck Dell for that.
