A roundup of news and commentary from around the interwebs.
This is fantastic news:
The fight against Pornhub may finally be nearing an end. Pornhub and all of MindGeek’s porn tube sites were just completely demonetized by Visa and Mastercard. This is a huge moment for victims. Let’s celebrate with them and for them. #Traffickinghub

Question: Does this look like grooming to you?
I will never support any Republican candidate on any level of government who does not pledge to use every available legal means to put a stop to this sort of thing and punish all those responsible https://t.co/NMZz5cfWtp

Canada’s 2021 euthanasia numbers are out. Health Canada reports more than 10,000 deaths, representing 3.3% of all deaths, with at least 170 people choosing death due to loneliness and isolation.
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis knows how to fight and tell it like it is. He has learned the lesson of the Trump years—that things are unsayable until someone says them—but is actually saying things that need to be said. Exhibit A–watch how he accurately, and publicly, describes sex changes for children:
DeSantis on gender dysphoria: “They talk about young kids getting gender-affirming care. They don't tell you what that is. They're actually giving very young girls double mastectomies. They want to castrate these young boys. That's wrong…You don't disfigure 10, 12, y/o kids." pic.twitter.com/oBFpBGQipu

Bang on. It is about time someone said it. DeSantis 2024.
The Washington Examiner has a good explainer on how DeSantis is pushing back against Biden’s radical trans agenda:
Florida public schools are already forbidden by state law from indoctrinating young children with transgender ideology or attempting to transition children behind their parents’ backs. But DeSantis’s education commissioner, Manny Diaz, has further made clear that schools should not feel pressure from these federal guidelines to treat boys as if they were girls or vice versa when it comes to school sports, bathrooms, or locker rooms. So Florida schools, at least, will not bow to any mandate to feign ignorance about the reality of sex, a biological characteristic from which each person’s humanity is inseparable.

One set of rules for us, another set of rules for the LGBT crowd. Get used to it.
