The appropriately-named Gubnor of Utah, Spencer Cox, has signed the legislation to ban internet porn in that state, you know, by demanding internet-enabled devices there do something about filtering the hubba-hubba out so that the Osmand Family are not tempted to twiddle their fingers and whatnot when they should be making babies:
SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Utah is a step closer to requiring all cellphones and tablets sold in the conservative state to automatically block pornography after the Republican governor signed legislation Tuesday that critics call a significant intrusion of free speech.
Gov. Spencer Cox has said the measure would send an “important message” about preventing children from accessing explicit online content. The proposal is the latest move in Utah’s legislative campaign to curb the availability of porn.
And the hysterically-named Cox is too pure to know what constitutes porn, so that decision is left up to the technology companies, I guess? One might think that those internet companies might, you know, censor magical underwear. By accident. Oops.
The issue here is that one person’s heavy breathing is another person’s asthma.
