Legal "If you download potentially copyrighted software, videos or music, your Internet service provider has been watching, and they're coming for you. Specifically, they're coming for you on Thursday, July 12. That's the date when the nation's largest ISPs will all voluntarily implement a new anti-piracy plan that will engage network operators in the largest digital spying scheme in history, and see some users' bandwidth completely cut off until they sign an agreement saying they will not download copyrighted materials." One day, years from now, historians are going to debate whether this was the point of no return.

I know I've been warned, but you equating the proposed ISP "actions" to homosexuality is quite frankly offensive and just plain wrong.

What you are searching for, to describe this fuckery, is rapists. There is nothing in consensual male-male sex that comes close to what our spying US ISP Overlords are planning to do.
