EU Considers Porn Ban

eu_0.png

The European Union is now considering banning all pornography as it is an “infringement of the human rights” of women and “promotes gender stereotypes.”

The proposal, readable in full on the European Parliament’s website, explains that porn and “the sexualisation of girls” all infringe on the human rights of women, and specifically demands they be banned:

Calls on the EU and its Member States to take concrete action on its resolution of 16 September 1997 on discrimination against women in advertising, which called for a ban on all forms of pornography in the media and on the advertising of sex tourism.

The report also complains about the lack of feminist censorship of the rest of Europe’s media as well:

In television programmes, computer games and musical video clips there is an increasingly noticeable tendency, partly for commercial purposes, to show provocatively dressed women, in sexual poses, thereby further contributing to gender stereotyping; whereas the lyrics of songs for young people contain sexually suggestive content, which often promotes violence against women and girls.

[...]

Young women and men are most affected by pornography’s new cultural status; whereas the ‘mainstreaming of pornography’, i.e. the current cultural process whereby pornography is slipping into our everyday lives as an evermore universally accepted, often idealised, cultural element, manifests itself particularly clearly within youth culture: from teenage television and lifestyle magazines to music videos and commercials targeted at the young.

To correct these evils, they call for EU-wide efforts to purge all media of “gender stereotypes” deemed disadvantageous to women, including forcing a “culture of equality” on the Internet:

Points out that a policy to eliminate stereotypes in the media will of necessity involve action in the digital field; considers that this requires the launching of initiatives coordinated at EU level with a view to developing a genuine culture of equality on the internet; calls on the Commission to draw up in partnership with the parties concerned a charter to which all internet operators will be invited to adhere;

Calls on the EU to develop awareness campaigns on zero-tolerance across the EU for sexist insults or degrading images of women and girls in the media;

Calls on the Member States to establish independent regulation bodies with the aim of controlling the media and advertising industry and a mandate to impose effective sanctions on companies and individuals promoting the sexualisation of girls;

In the interests of better demonising porn, they are also keen for the EU to fund the concoction of more research linking it to child pornography and sexual abuse:

Calls on the EU to conduct research into the links between child pornography and adult pornography and the impacts on girls, women, boys and men, as well as the relationship between pornography and sexual violence;

A Swedish Pirate Party MEP is also now claiming that the EU is actively censoring email complaints about the issue to the European Parliament, after citizens had the temerity to complain about the ban to them:

Next week the European parliament will be voting on a resolution to “ban all forms of pornography in media.” After this information became known to a wider audience, many citizens have decided to contact members of the European parliament to express their views on this issue.

This is absolutely excellent. Citizens engaging actively in the democratic process is a very positive thing, at least in my opinion. Before noon, some 350 emails had arrived in my office.

But around noon, these mails suddenly stopped arriving. When we started investigating why this happened so suddenly, we soon found out:

The IT department of the European Parliament is blocking the delivery of the emails on this issue, after some members of the parliament complained about getting emails from citizens.

    Wouldn't banning porn, make people more repressed and more likely to rape something? Yes I said "something" and by people I mean men AND women.

    All those feminists are just sitting in their secret HQ while planning to take over the world, right?

    Now seriously: I do think there is a real threat in them because most of them are not about true equality but about censoring stuff and going batshit insane.

    That is incorrect. First, they used Lolicon, because the law wasn't concerned about genitalia at first. It was all about pubic hair... which lolis lack.

    I don't think everyone has a secret rapist inside them waiting to pounce if they don't get off for a few days.
    Also this ban is referring to things like newspapers and television, not DVDs and porn sites on the Internet.

    Actually, everyone has a secret rapist inside them. That's a remnant of the past times.

    The only question is, how much will it take for someone to say "screw it, I don't care" and let said rapist out. For some people it's very little, and for some people it's so much that you could as well said they'd never do it.

    That being said, banning porn is a stupid idea because not only will it cause a few more people to stop caring and just get violent (maybe not immediately, but there's more to "future" than just "immediately afterwards"), it also is the opposite of what they say it is supposed to achieve (because there are various sorts of porn, and people will know the whole decision was caused not because of "gender equality" but because some crazy "feminists" were spouting insanities again).

    ...but then again, that's what you get for trying to enforce socially incapable people's ("feminists") ideas of what "equality" is, especially when such "equality" is not needed.

    I don't know about you, but women that are upset, in pain, crying, saying "no, don't, stop", is the biggest turn off ever. I couldn't rape even if that's the only choice I had.

    You mean a lot of women secretly desire to be raped. But they also want safety. So they end up victimize men. It is sickening and turns my stomach. They just go through guys like 15:31 as if these guys don't exist, then get together with the asshole who treats them like shit. And then, they have the gulls to complain. Honestly, a lot of times it is bad situation in their own making.

    99% of people (my guess but I am sure it's over 95%) will reject any statement like yours. Not because you're implying they're capable of "uncivilized" actions.
    It's because you called humans animals.
    Many religions which are supposed to teach "morality" in fact make people unaware of their natural "uncivilized" instincts.

    People like crazy Feminazis don't help that pushing more and more unnatural behavior restrictions.

    I am not saying we should go with all our instincts - we should just stay aware that they are there.
    It's our choice to give in or stay "civilized" - people like to turn this around stating the "uncivilized" part comes from the outside implying it's like illness or something.

    Last time I checked they didn't specify media and didn't bother to - well include men in their equality. The do list em though as "they can do some of the female dominated jobs" but upon returning to EVERY SINGLE THING ALLREADY SAID ONCE (aka "Other Actions") they are suddenly dropped.

    Don't get me wrong - I do have nothing against women getting the same pay as me, heck, she can have my job if I can stay at home and do that - but forced quota and "let's support girls EVEN MORE" makes me sick.
    If you're a student and the student representatives organize a "for girls only" english course it makes me mad. HOW, tell me HOW does a girl fare automatically worse then a boy when the english course is allready filled to the brim a second after registration is unlocked on the homepage? NOT ONE TAD BIT!

    P.S.: Try to count all the names that have a female sounding first name that are listed under "Result of final vote in comitee" - I got to 19 (of 24 or so). There's your "equality", start with yourselves you pretentious bitches (and I won't excuse myself for calling them that, fuck me)

    It's not about everyone. It's about a small portion of the population which would be willing to rape, if not for the porn industry.

    it is called the Rosenthal- Effect.

    we see in the media, that someone killed somebody. everyday. links are drawn between the murder and other things like porn, heavy metal or first person shooters.
    and we get stuffed with bad news every. fucking. day.
    it amplifies fear and undermines the good things.
    people starting to fear their neighbours, because...yknow, he listens to slipknot! he could be some kind of monster, too!

    now they create a new boogey man. porn. soon, everybody that enjoys porn will be deemed a criminal. yeat another thing to fear.

    i just dont get i why our "elites" are enforcing fear by criminalizing the wrong causes, while true crimes like speculations and bets on food supply are rewarded with millions of dollars.

    it`s starting to feel like war. and i refuse to participate.

    Actually, I think they'd just actively educate themselves to find a way around it using a computer.

    In a sense this is a way to force people to expand their understanding of computers and the internet.

    my opinion on this is as always, feminism activists take everything too far. They complain about the sexualization of women in the media but still expect men to look like Adonis on their soap operas.

    To top it off, porn is a legitimate business in most developed countries, and the ones that place censorship on it (China's ban and Japan's Mosaics) tend to have the most repressed sexual deviants.

    It's a move to boost the dwindling industry - there's too much free porn on the net for the business to make any serious money nowadays, driving it underground will make it harder to obtain, therefore more expensive. All prohibitions without exception have this effect, and it's obvious everyone involved in the business (be it manufacture, distribution or supression) is very obviously aware of it.

    there has always been porn... thousands of years.

    Women are paid for the work (usually). Its a job. A victim-less crime. And yeah, some women like dressing up and be sexy and/or slutty.
