China Bans "Extreme Pornography"
I don't know how many of you have been reading about the "Green Dam," the new firewall software China would like preinstalled on all computers sold in the Middle Kingdom. Well, China Journal today has the 5 categories it bans:
1. adult/ pornography
2. extreme adult/pornography
3. violent games
5. illegal activities/drugs (including gambling)
First, I'm glad someone is finally culling extreme pornography out of the wrongfully castigated pornography segment. Second, since homosexuality is illegal in China, they must have wanted to be pretty explicit about giving it its own category rather than just include it under "illegal activities." Third, if you take these 5 things out of the Internet, what the heck is left?
