Depending on which categories are selected, software filters by ENA block any sites that contain positive LGBT information—but do not block sites with the same key words that promote anti-LGBT viewpoints. According to ENA’s message screen, KCS elected to block these categories:
“Alternative Sexuality/Lifestyles: Sites that provide information, promote, or cater to alternative sexual expressions in their myriad forms. Includes but is not limited to the full range of non-traditional sexual practices, interests, orientations or fetishes.
“LGBT: Sites that provide information regarding, support, promote, or cater to one’s sexual orientation or gender identity including but not limited to lesbian, gay, bi-sexual (sic), and transgender sites.”
Some of What Gets Blocked
Parents, Family and Friends of Lesbians and Gays (PFLAG): “We... celebrate diversity and envision a society that embraces everyone, including those of diverse sexual orientations and gender identities.”
