The Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) has removed ads for gay hook-up website Squirt.org, because it promotes illegal activity including sex in public places.
In these transit ads, shirtless men are seen embracing. But TTC spokesman Brad Ross claims that such photos aren’t the issue, and neither is the promotion of homosexuality.
The TTC reviewed the website after 10 complaints were lodged. They found that the site promotes sex in public places, like washrooms, parks, beaches, gyms, glory holes and bathhouses.
Ross says that if Squirt.org were to clean up that part of their website, the TTC would be more than happy to repost the advertisements.
Squirt’s Attila Szatmari isn’t happy with the TTC’s decision, saying that the website is only a platform that connects people, much like Uber, and does not have a hand in arranging where these connections occur.
Do you think the TTC made the right call on this? Are you happy the ads have been taken down because of the homosexual lifestyle they promote? Is the public transit system an inappropriate place to feature any ads promoting anything related to sex?
