Australia keeps trying desperately to overtake the UK, USA & Germany when it comes to ridiculous “child porn” laws. A man in Australia was recently convicted for possessing pornographic images depicting characters from The Simpsons and The Powerpuff Girls, and is now a registered sex offender. The 28 year old was turned into police for having questionable material on his computer in early 2008, but due to technical difficulties, police were unable to retrieve information from his machine for more than a year. Once they were able to do so, however, they found 64 sexually explicit images depicting characters from the aforementioned TV shows. As many of you Simpsons fans know, there are numerous children who make regular appearances on the show, and they were apparently "not excluded from these images.”
As it turns out, the Australian Supreme Court ruled in 2008 that sexually explicit illustrations of children qualify as child pornography. Law enforcement agreed that Milner’s images fell into that category, and he eventually pleaded guilty to possession of child exploitation material and using the Internet to get it. As a result, he was sentenced to a year in jail, but was wholly suspended for five years with a $1,000 bond for good behavior. He is also registered as a sex offender. Milner’s sentencing seems harsh, but this is neither his first conviction nor is it the first time an Australian court has gone after someone for possessing Simpsons porn. As pointed out by the Queensland Times.
In another attempt to clean up the moral mess in the country of bush fires & baby stealing dingoes (and teenagers) the Australian government has reportedly banned mainstream pornography from showing women with small breasts, apparently on the grounds that they encourage paedophilia, and in spite of the fact this is a normal breast size for many adult women. The Australian Sex Party reports even Hustler has seen its publications refused publication, all thanks to the usual moral crusader “think of the children” arguments:
This is in response to a campaign led by Kids Free 2 B Kids and promoted by Barnaby Joyce and Guy Barnett in Senate Estimates late last year. Mainstream companies such as Larry Flint’s Hustler produce some of the publications that have been banned. These companies are regulated by the FBI to ensure that only adult performers are featured in their publications.
With small breasts now considered obscene, Australian adult rags are said to have suffered sharp increase in breast sizes. Presumably small breasted women taking photographs of themselves will now be guilty of creating simulated child pornography, to say nothing of the message this sends to women with modestly sized chests or those who favour them. Australia is also said to have banned pornographic depictions of female ejaculation, a normal orgasmic sexual response in many women, with censors branding it as “abhorrent”. It seems the UK and Australia are intent on regressing to Victorian standards of morality (although this time anyone criticising homosexuality may find themselves convicted of a hate crime), between them having now banned everything from BDSM to small breasts, even where participants are entirely imaginary.
You can like posts on milkboys now. Just click the little under any post you liked. This will make it easier for me to determine which kind of content you guys like which should eventually results in a better quality of content. So, feel free to go back and like a few older posts :)
I will also clean up the blog a bit (about time after nearly 30 months of blogging) over the next days; that means lots of old posts will be removed because they are either not working anymore ’cause the photo/video in the post was deleted from its original source or they don’t fit my standards of what is post-worthy anymore. Some other (very old) posts will be reblogged over time to give new readers the chance to discover them. This doesn’t mean there will be less fresh content ‘tho, I will rather raise the frequency of posts a bit and mix new & old posts.

A film on homophobic bullying is to be screened in all UK secondary schools next month. The film – the first of its kind to be sent to all schools – will try to stop pupils using the word "gay" in a derogatory way. It tells the story of six teenagers – who are gay, straight or not yet sure of their sexuality – and are taking classes in hip hop dancing at a college in south London. Some come out and are bullied for it, others conceal their sexuality out of fear. The film’s director, Rikki Beadle-Blair, who wrote and played the lead role in the Channel 4 drama Metrosexuality, takes the role of the teacher. The film, FIT, is part-funded by the Department for Children, Schools and Families and will be sent to every secondary school next month by the gay rights charity Stonewall.
A poll of more than 2,000 teachers, commissioned by Stonewall last year, found that 90% thought homophobic bullying occurred in their school. The same percentage had not been trained in tackling the problem. A fifth said they did not feel comfortable talking about gay issues in the classroom, and one in six said they felt uneasy if a pupil asked a question about homosexuality. Chris Gibbons, Stonewall’s senior education officer, said: "Teachers are still ill-equipped and unsure of how to deal with gay issues in their classrooms." The film is adapted from a play which has been seen by 20,000 pupils in the last two years.
