Backpage’s new head legal weasel, Liz McDougall, is back in the press again talking about how much she cares about mone…I mean human trafficking.
First a little tidbit I didn’t know about Ms. McDougall. Her former law firm did some work with craigslist when they were catching heat for their erotic services section. So it seems Ms. McDougall has a history of selling out the women and children who are being trafficked as sex slaves on the internet.
Now let’s get to some of the actual words that Ms. McDougall had to say…
I don’t enjoy the scrutiny. It’s scary, and it can be very unpleasant. As long as we fight trafficking, I can live with people demonizing us.
If they shut down the adult category, I’ll leave. Backpage is best positioned to fight this. If that happens and I quit, I don’t know what I’ll do. This is all-consuming for me.
First off let me restate that basic logic dictates that Backpage can’t be both the problem and the solution.
Now let me get out my bullshit to English dictionary and translate what I think Ms. McDougall is really saying…. *ahem*
As long as Backpage keeps paying me large amounts of money I’ll put up with being demonized in society. It’s totally worth it.
If they shut down the adult category I’ll be out of a job and probably won’t be able to work anywhere else after taking this gig. I really love getting paid out of that sweet $27 mil they get for the sex ads.
Maybe it’s time I start giving Ms. McDougall’s picture the same treatment I gave Jim Buckmaster’s back in the day. Because like I said before someone who does something just for the sake of money is a whore.
