Well, this is fucked the hell up. Craigslist personals were the way I discovered my sexuality on my own terms and now it’s been terminated. Discuss.

OP here, I feel this entire post mad hard. We sound like pretty much the same type of person in that I too identify as a sissy in my male/male relationship side of the spectrum and I’m not into the gay scene either. I also feel like I have nowhere to go now for this sort of mutual consenting safe adult outlet and it really fucking bugs me that it’s all being justified under false pretenses. Not only does this do literally nothing for people who are being legit trafficked by fucked up cartels and gangs and individuals operating their own independent slave trades in the underground, but it literally blindly robs people like you and I of our identities we’ve become used to and tempts is towards places we aren’t comfortable or familiar with which in turn is actually dangerous or at least very risky IMO. I have one guy I was with last who still talks to me here and there who lucky for me is pretty much my ideal match sexually but if he drops off the face of the earth I don’t think I’m really going to have anything but my dildo to get me off in the same way, and that’s not really gonna do it in the end.

As for sites I’m pretty sure it’s slim pickings. I don’t wanna jinx it but I think it’s fucking hilarious that apps like Tinder and Grindr are still up when those can be exploited in pretty much the exact same way. I don’t want to use Backpage because hardly anyone in my state uses it besides escorts and that’d single me out and make me super visible and my privacy is pretty important to me because the people closest to me, while they know I’m queer, would probably think it’s alienating that I’m fucking people from CL. I dunno, I’m getting a little desperate at this point because I think this is going to just get worse and worse with time. If anyone knows any alternatives I hope they post here and let us know.

It never got me laid, but it could have if I wasn't so goddamn shy and picky. I will miss it.

The whole human trafficking deal is old meme, backpage cracked down on that shit damn near a decade ago. Prostitution as it happened on bp and cl was a different beast entirely, not a problem worth sacrificing more of our rights to combat. The government doesn't actually care about escorts, hell, they purchase their services with our tax dollars.

This has nothing to do with protecting children or eliminating prostitution; those are just alibis. it's just another attack on free speech, another experiment in controlling the dialogue. We really can't afford that, seeing as Donald Trump's heartbeat is the only thing saving us from two years of Mike Pence as basher-in-chief.

I'm more than a little scared.

OP here — good news! Had some luck with Doublelist recently. It’s literally the same system as CL sand it looks like everyone from my city has migrated over to it. Recommended.

Thought it had potential, but I'm not giving these people my phone number just to post an ad.

Was the verification email and 4 fucking stages of captcha not enough proof that I'm a real person? What the fuck.

To be fair, I distinctly remember borrowing someone's phone to do verification for posting a CL ad a decade ago when I was a college freshman. Maybe they stopped doing that at some point, but by then I'd stopped using it so IDK.

SO, for science, I'm giving this a shot. Did the phone thing, posted an ad. Has been simultaneously "verified, will be up shortly" and "has expired, was removed, or deleted".... for 5 hours without appearing in the listings. "Status: reviewed."

Granted I posted in advance since it said review can take up to 48 hours, but I'm not expecting much to come of it if there's already like 3 pages of new results on top by the time it even shows up, provided it does at all. We'll see I guess. Will report back once I've got a clearer picture of the site's mechanics.
