Australia bans small breasts

A story getting quite a bit of mileage in Australia this week is the idea that the government has banned small breasts. What’s actually happening is we have a law that states anything that describes or depicts a person who is, or appears to be, a child under 18 (whether the person is engaged in sexual activity or not) in a way that is likely to cause offence to a reasonable adult is Refused Classification (i.e. banned).

It seems that enforcement has been stepped up recently with a lot of “barely legal” type of publications being banned. One of the measures being used to determine if a model appears to be underage is small breast size, hence the tagline being thrown around – Australia is banning small breasts. While I agree with everyone who says this law is stupid (prosecuting someone because someone thinks it looks like they’re breaking the law, even though they’re not? Really??) I wish people protesting would be a bit more honest.

The porn in question is designed to appeal to creepy types who fetishise young girls. If you can’t admit that you’re simply avoiding the truth because you think it undermines your position. And I don’t have any time for that sort of cowardice and double talk.  Having said that, the law is fucking stupid. I have no time for people who want to legislate morality – it never works.

Sadly, it doesn’t seem to stop governments trying.

Still, on the bright side, it allows me to make a blog post using such search engine bait as breasts, underage girls, porn, hentai and barely legal. Not that I’m cynical or anything like that.

  1. Adding to the search engine bait, federal government censors are also refusing classification to any film which depicts a female orgasm + female ejeculation. Why, because they say this is “abhorent”, and equivalent to a golden shower. The only protection the Australian public needs is protection from these stupid policy hacks…

    What does that say for people who marry women with small breasts?

  3. Soliloquy

    Prior to having children I was a woman of very average breast size. I’m offended that large beachball boobs are considered the only proper shape for a grown up woman.

    What’s with breast size? Anything more than a mouthful is wasted.
    Don’t these government morons realise that human anatomy comes in a range of shapes and sizes?
