EU Votes on Banning Porn

Coco
Do we even get to see this?

Coming up soon in the European Union is a historic vote that takes place every once in a while around the world. ( so I guess it's not really that historic ) This one is a little different than usual though. The EU is considering a ban on all forms of pornography in all forms of media including the internet. ( e.g. the site you are on right now ) This in of itself is not that earth shattering. Every group of people struggle with this from time to time. And while it's not expected to pass, the circumstances around it are enough to give a little pause.

The first thing that is a little different this time is, it's not a religious group, or a group of conservatives that are pushing this forward. Usually with religious groups, there's a this is God's will argument that takes place with the request to do what God wants you to do. And the argument is usually quickly dismissed with the, your God is not everyone's God angle, with the general consensus that God's law cannot be man's law, because there are just to many Gods to follow right now. ( even though there's a lot fewer Gods than there were a few thousand years ago )

The second usual way for getting rid of porn are the conservative groups remembering an age long past, and them trying to will it back into existence with whatever laws that they can pull together. I think Tsunemoto can explain the problem with this a lot better than I can.

It is said that what is called 'the spirit of an age' is something to which one cannot return. That this spirit gradually dissipates is due to the world's coming to an end. In the same way, a single year does not have just spring or summer. A single day, too, is the same. For this reason, although one would like to change today's world back to the spirit of one hundred years or more ago, it cannot be done. Thus it is important to make the best out of every generation. This is the mistake of people who are attached to past generations; they have no understanding of this point. On the other hand, people who only know the disposition of the present day and dislike the ways of the past are too lax.

This time is a little different though. They're coming at it from a progressive angle that hasn't been tried before. The proposal is called, the “Report on eliminating gender stereotypes in the EU” The main goal of the report is to effectively, make everyone equal under all forms of media. Eliminating stereotypes in the process. Which, on the face, sounds like a liberal idea, but, in practice, amounts to massive forms of censorship. And imbedded in Article 17 of the report, eliminates all forms of pornography in all forms of media.

Of course, if any of this passes, I will be as shocked as the next guy. If there's one thing I know about politicians, it's that they love their women, and no politician in his right mind is going to remove a way of see random women naked. There is one other thing that makes me pause a little though. It seems that the EU Parliament has blocked all emails that are in protest of the ban on porn. While a lot of people are taking this as a sign that the ban might actually go through, I see it as completely the opposite. To me, it's almost a we're not going to do it, so please shut the fuck up about it moment. Let's just hope I'm right.

And let me just speak for all North Americans by saying, We're pulling for you!
