The shocking news came, came two days after the United States Senate voted yes to the bipartisan legislation known as the Enabling Sex Traffickers Act.

All that is left to make the legislation take full effect is the signature of the president of the United States Donald Trump. The legislation will create an exception to Section 240 of the CDA (Communication Decency Act). If this goes into effect, sex trafficking victims will be able to sue the websites or forums that facilitated their abuse.

What the section 230 of the CDA is all about?

The section 230 CDA is a legal protection that shields online companies from being held liable or accountable for the content generated by their users.

Large and small companies affected are expected to accept it with good faith. And look at it as a way to protect their users from, harassing, objectionable, violent, and filthy content.

Truth be told, any service or tool can be misused. And that is why Craigslist said that it is going to take down the personals section of its website.

How to increase the odds of you finding a TS partner on these sites

Be open minded

Online dating gives you the freedom to talk to and hang out with multiple dates. Don’t abuse this luxury and start eliminating people who don’t meet your unique taste. Keep your expectations low especially when meeting your date in person.

Don’t pretend

Don’t act like somebody you are not or pretend while dating online. Doing this will be damaging to you. How? You see, when you use a fake image or a fake profile to make your date like you, you will never be comfortable or at ease. Also, if your date discovers who you really are he is going to be disappointed. Ignore this warning at your own peril.

Set up your profile properly

The way and manner you set up your profile will determine to a large extent if you will find a dating partner or not. Your profile photo should be attractive. Also, your profile info should be interesting and unique. For example, instead of saying that you have a great sense of humor, you can specify what makes you laugh. If you are not sure if your profile is good, tell a trusted friend to help you check it out.

Don’t troll

Don’t be the creepy dude who sends awkward massages that make people uncomfortable. Be polite, respond to people’s message in a respectful manner. If the transgender dating platform you are using keeps tabs on the number of times you visit a person’s profile, then you should limit your visit to other people’s profile. Ignore this and people will see you as a lurker. You don’t want that.

Be patient

Don’t expect to find to the perfect date overnight. You are likely going to date a lot of people before you find someone that you really like. Diving into an intimate relationship with someone without first getting to know the person is a recipe for disaster.

Final note

As craigslist shut its t4m section doors to transgenders who want to have a great time, other website and apps are opening their doors to Trans to find partners and have an encounter.
