(New Europe)   EU voting a ban on pornography, 'Eliminating Gender Stereotypes in the EU' is the innocuous title of a report that sounds like the sort of thing few would object to, but as Swedish Pirate MEP, Christian Engstrom notes, the devil is in the details   (neurope.eu ) divider line
    More: Scary, Christian Engstrom, self-abuse, right to protest, sex ratio, stereotypes, genders

Endive Wombat: I am constantly fascinated and amused when political leaders and those calling for governmental action literally know zilch when it comes to certain aspects of technology.

So when it comes to internet pornography...yeah that cat is out of the bag and is not going back in...ever...



No, no, I totally know a site where they do that.

wotthefark: I can't wait for the Daily Mail story on this.

Politically correctness gone mad, The Europeans are stopping us from wanking.

Then prime minister's questions time.

What are we going to do about these baaaaastaarrrdds in Brussels stopping us from wanking off to porn?

[Do it in any english/scots/n.irish/ welsh accent. It still works]



My son was thrown out of school today for letting a girl in hisclass wank him off. I sat him down and said "Son, that's three schools this year. Maybe teaching isn't for you."  /Popbiatch.

Voiceofreason01: I'll take "why strong free speech protections in the USA are a good thing" for $500 Alex.

/for you EU FARKers, this is why we don't get too upset when some street preacher starts ranting about gays or something, because the same laws that protect those assholes protect the rest of us from the kind of bullshiat like in the article.


I bet you are oppressing a woman right now!

Bored Horde: The ban is on objectifying women in advertising.  The industry had 15 years to police themselves, they didn't, and now the EU parliament is stepping in.

If you think it's OK that skinny women (and only skinny women) are used to advertise the majority of product out there, that women are shown in subservient, smiling roles in this advertising, and that there has been no forward progress (and indeed increased objectification in some regards) in 15 years, well... perhaps the EU isn't the place for you.

I'm not surprised that the Internet party wants to keep women naked and objectified in the media.


This is funny to me because I had you Farkied with the quote, "I love how people who settled with fat chicks dubbed them 'curvy' to hide their shame."
