Anti-trans 'journalist' Alex Jones tries to explain why he had trans porn on his phone

One of the least surprising news stories of all time concerned a group of researchers who were forced to abandon a controlled study on the effects of porn because they couldn’t find a single man who had never watched it

So, yeah, we know people watch porn. And maybe they sometimes drift a little far afield, consuming porn that goes a wee bit beyond the borders of their own declared preferences and tastes.

But I’m an openminded guy, and I say to each his own. No one cares. It’s not a story.

That is, unless you’re a virulent anti-trans “journalist” who, well, suddenly has trans porn pop up on your smartphone out of nowhere. Then you’re just a dick.

Enter Alex Jones, one of Donald Trump’s favorite “real” journalists.

From PinkNews:

The InfoWars host was mocked and accused of hypocrisy this week after accidentally revealing his open tabs during a live demonstration of how to use the outlet’s website.

Among the open pages on his iPhone was one that appeared to show a pornographic video titled “Naughty Tbabe Mistress,” which features Australian transgender adult model Marissa Minx.

But according to Jones, porn appears on people’s phones all the time without them wanting it to.

While taking calls on his show … a viewer asked the alt-right host about his risqué browsing habits.

“I was like, looking up some reporter we’re trying to hire today and punched in some number and it popped up porn on my phone,” he said.

“Everyone’s had porn pop up on their phones hundreds of times.”

Jones, who last month called drag queens “satanic” beings who should be “consumed by fire,” then gave his account of the original incident.

“So I’m sitting there with a phone, on air, showing it to everybody because I couldn’t get a URL up in the studio, and then like, some thing pops up, like oh my god, and I looked at it,” he said.

“I’ve probably had porn menus pop up 500 times on my phone,” he added. “So I appreciate your call; I mean, it’s insane, ladies and gentlemen.”

I have an iPhone. I imagine many of you do, too. Hands up if you’ve ever had trans porn spontaneously pop up on your phone without warning. (I’ll give you a chance to finish floggin’ the ol’ Jones before you raise your hand.)

In fact, I’d have to say the number of times porn of any kind has simply materialized on my phone without prompting is, well, zero. Zero times. It’s never happened on my laptop, either. And by every indication, the thing has more skeevy viruses than an imperial pint of Steve Bannon’s blood.

So, yeah, it seems pretty unlikely that this just happened out of the blue for no discernible reason.

And if you’re going to be a dick about transgender people — for instance, claiming they’re mentally ill menaces who are building cyborgs in a desperate bid to destroy civilization — you don’t get a pass.

And, no, we can’t simply ignore your bigotry and ignorance — not when thousands of Americans hang on your every word and the actual president of the United States thinks you have a sterling reputation.

You’re caught. Face the music. And stop being a dick.
