South Carolina Wants To ‘Stop Porn’ By Just Making You Pay For It

South Carolina Representative Bill Chumley filed a bill this month to keep South Carolinians from watching internet porn. Needless to say, the internet isn’t too worried. Chumley’s proposed legislation would require sellers to install digital blocking capabilities on computers and other devices that access the internet. The software would prevent the good and modest people of South Carolina from viewing content that the state government found obscene or unwholesome. However, both buyers and sellers could get out of the limitation easily, and where there is will, there is a way. Sellers can opt out of adding the blocking system by paying $20 per device sold. Likewise, buyers would just need to verify their age and pay $20 to remove the filter. Chumley’s attempt to block porn will only make people resort to paying for porn, which isn’t exactly a new concept.
