    Australia's extreme censorship

    Australia's 'small breast' ban - The Week

    Australia's government is "banning" adult publications and films featuring women with "small breasts," says Aussie activist Fiona Patten, on the grounds that such images encourage pedophilia. Patton, leader of the anti-censorship Australian Sex Party, is taking issue with a 2005 ruling which specified that even depictions of women who are over 18 but "appear to be" underage may be judged "illegal." Is this alleged practice a strategic way to fight child pornography, or — as Patten maintains — an absurd reaction to a perfectly normal female body type?

    How could censoring small breasts curb kiddie porn? This "is a terrible idea for many reasons," says Maureen O'Connor in Gawker. Not only would such a ban do nothing to "reduce smut," censoring images of "small breasts" only codifies "an arbitrary set of female sexual ideals."

    Patton is exaggerating: We're all taking this too far, says Australian censorship blog Somebody Think of the Children. While it's true that the law does ban women who "look younger" than 18 from appearing in adult publications and films, images of small breasts alone are not "automatically" considered "illegal." For instance, "it’s highly unlikely that a naked photograph of a 30-, 40- or 50-year-old woman with small breasts" would ever be banned.

    Regardless, the law is sexist: A ban that classifies normal female bodies as "obscene" could not be "any more insulting," says adult industry blog Ms Naughty. Not only does this encourage women to have breast augmentations, it characterizes men who think "small boobs are sexy" as "perverts." There's an easier way to determine if a woman is "'too young" — it's called checking her date of birth.
    I see no justice and no common sense here. All I see is Australia demonstrating that they don't deserve to be classified as a "civilized nation". They see fit to declare adult work as child pornography, they're not civilized. They're no better than communist China.

    Have you heard about computer games in Australia? Similar trouble.

    I think what happened is "dictatorship of the moral guardians". Just like in times of high patriotism any criticism of the state is silenced as disloyal. No one can speak up without being silenced and ostracized as "pervert".

    Normal humans are adapted to be attracted to others from the point they reach sexual maturity. This is about puberty, not 18/21 years. Repressing this will not work - it's not a disorder, it's the natural way the mind works. Teaching restraint, not going against the will of another, will work. Denying attraction will not. It will only lead to more public masks of purity coupled with an inner seeking release in the shadows.

    I think 'adult publications' should be banned altogether... and let's begin with the Victoria's Secret ads on t.v.

    Can you prove women with small chests are being portrayed / deliberately portraying themselves in kiddie-esque situations?

    The link you provided talks about how it's not simply small breasts but young women with small breasts who look very young besides. This genre of porn seeks to make the girls appear to be underage even though they aren't. Have you seen any of this stuff or are you just blabbing about that which you know nothing.

    And how are you so familiar with the intricacies of this type of porn?

    Is that a yes, you know what we're talkin' about or no, I'm just running my mouth?

    I've inadvertently come across it on the internet while surfing my favorite types of porn. How else?

    I inadvertently came across a web site which had ladies with pert breasts posing in coquettish postures and I was thoroughly disgusted.
    I could only watch it for about 2 hours.

    Would you think you might have a problem if you found yourself attracted to "snuff" porn, even if you knew the killing was only simulated? I would.
    The same goes for porn where the girls are made to look 13.

    The key word here is "look", not "are". The actors are of age, and if there's documented proof that they're at the age where you can engage in sex with them, then they should be allowed to take part in adult entertainment media just the same as ladies with D cups.

    I will try to watch ANYTHING once because if you havent seen it you cant comment on it.
    I couldnt actually watch child porn nor could I watch people being beheaded.
    I have never seen real snuff porn.
    I have watched old English porn with girls of about twenty dressed up as school girls.

    I dont see very young girls as being remotely sexy and SM is boring.
    In fact most porn is boring

    And if they could find 18 year olds that looked 8 you'd be fine with that too?

    We can go to the movies and watch people being tortured, raped and blown to pieces.
    Why pick on simulated paedophilia?
