Sneaky Bastards

Censorship abounds! Two stories today, first from Carnal Nation, where Dr. Marty Klein reports on a law hidden deep within federal funding intended for the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, aid to Haiti, massive omnibus spending in general. The second from the Huffington Post, reporting on those old rascals at Apple, who no doubt have better things to do (like fix the iPhone) than scour the ‘Net for porn to cover up like a bunch of digital Keystone Cops.

For the nearsighted, that last line is a WAKE UP CALL TO DEFEND YOUR RIGHTS!

“None of the funds made available in this act may be used to maintain or establish a computer network unless such network blocks the viewing, downloading and exchanging of pornography,” is the teeny little evil addition reported on by Dr. Klein. Not to sound flippant, but just how fucking addicted are our “leaders” to collateral damage that they have to make so sweeping and casual an assault on our freedom of expression? Don’t they send enough unmanned drones to waste anyone with the misfortune of being near a suspected terrorist?

As for Apple’s contribution to the absurd, almost fetishistic compulsion to make people safe from porn, check here for just a tiny selection of some of the apps and e-books censored or outright denied distribution, because of the terrible sin of having “gay themes” or using the word “sperm”. That’s how Moby Dick’s electronic version wound up censored, believe it or not. My favorite has to be outright banning the Kama Sutra as thoroughly “obscene”. Well excuuuuuuuse a 6000 year old culture for having spiritual expressions that are sex positive and don’t conform to some kind of Silicon Valley Calvinism.

Get laid, people. Seriously. It helps.

California School District Bans Dictionaries

I mean seriously, people, if you’re gonna ban everything that has any sort of relationship with sex, you’re gonna have to ban the children too. You know they came from sexual activity, right? Or did you not learn that in school?

Maybe the “Naked Chicks Reading Banned Books” will read to us from the dictionary next time. Yummmm, that sounds HOT!

Adam Lambert: The Male Madonna?

Posted in BDSM, Videos with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on November 23, 2009 by Chase

Adam Lambert’s AMA performance left nothing to be desired- there was fondling, crotch grabbing, falling and recovering, bird flipping, and face sucking- just for starters. At different points he walked a dancer on a leash, simulated a blowjob with another, and kissed a band member (all of these performers were male). See for yourself 

(From Associated Press) “Before his performance, Lambert said that he wanted to break down a double standard that existed where female performers are often sexually provocative while men don’t do it that often.” Well you’re half right about that, Adam- they usually don’t get provocative with other men.  Read more

Predictably his performance has inspired “more than 1500” complaints to ABC and drawn the attention of censors. Which, of course, can only help his career. Hurts so good indeed…
