Well dear readers, I was going to put up an interesting and in no way sexually orientated post today…….but, this is my 200th post in this blog and I am 443 readers short of 10,000 since it started.
For some reason it would be kind of nice to finish today with 10,000 readers from 200 posts……..and nothing seems to get hits like the subjects of sex, drugs and rock n roll!!
I would therefore like to thank each and every one of you which has taken the time to read the complete and utter sh*t I spew forth on a daily basis. I would also like to take this opportunity to tell you all to get out a bit more!!
Going back to the post title…..and my blog hits……it is therefore timely, that Ukraine this week adopted a law banning pornography……..Enter the Thought Police/Morality Police in what the “West” is calling the most liberal and democratic FSU nation……FFS.
So, as normal, a half-arse piece of legislation comes out of the RADA banning pornography…….but not defining it.
Previous existing laws relating to pornography related to those who produced or distributed pornography…….but this law relates to possession. The only thing clear is that the punishment ranges from 850 UAH to 3 years in a Ukrainian gulag.
So how does the existing laws describe pornography?………..
“Pornography is vulgar, candid, cynical, obscene depiction of sexual acts, pursuing no other goal, the explicit demonstration of genitals, unethical elements of the sexual act, sexual perversions, realistic sketches that do not meet moral criteria and offend honor and dignity of the human by inciting low instincts.”
Well, dear readers…….what meets my “moral criteria” and what offends “my honour and dignity” is probably not the same as what offends yours. What exactly is a “low instinct”?
All of what that says is exceptionally open to personal interpretation…….and in a country with a law enforcement and judiciary which runs on “pay off and bribe culture”……..it could become the case where possession of a photograph of tits on my computer would make me a criminal…….even if the tits were emailed to me in an unsolicited email……as possession is possession and when someone wants a bribe or pay-off…….there is no point trying to argue the fact you have no idea who the sender was and that it is in fact junk/spam mail.
The Justice Ministry have defended the law by stating they are combating Child Pornography……and quite rightly too…….but even the most tin-pot, piss poor, numb-nut can define what is and is not a child by definition in law, either simply by age or mental ability, or both.
It shows the standard of both the politicians and judiciary that a law set out to tighten up child pornography laws (a laudable concept) has ended up in a complete ban on possessing any form of pornography……..including I have to assume, a picture of my wife’s tits……..not that I have any……..but in theory possession of such a picture would be a crime.
No That Is Not The Wife - Wrong Hair Colour!!
Of course, if you possess a picture of my wife’s tits……..that is a crime……even if it is not a crime……..you have been warned!!
The law has yet to be signed onto the statute books by the President…..and hopefully the man will actually veto it and sent it back to parliament to address what it was supposed to do……tighten up laws on Child Pornography…..if of course he signs it, he should expect almost every museum and art gallery in Ukraine to be shut, the banning of exhibits from other cultures etc etc……..because they all show tits. Some works of art show arses too…..OMG. There are even some which show things very similar in looks to a badly packed kebab……but were last week considered art and viewed with admiration by the masses……….where as now they are criminal.
Better Pull The Building Down - It's Showing Naughty Things!!
So what has the legislators who penned this piss poor piece of legislation have to say?……..
“If some people can’t realize their erotic ideas in other ways, let them keep porno films and magazines,” ……which obviously does not in anyway reflect the law they have just written……..“Pornography is vulgar, candid, cynical, obscene depiction of sexual acts, pursuing no other goal, the explicit demonstration of genitals, unethical elements of the sexual act, sexual perversions, realistic sketches that do not meet moral criteria and offend honor and dignity of the human by inciting low instincts.”
Perhaps we should ban sex completely…..in a cause and effect kind of way…..because if pictures or films of sex are criminal, then surely actually doing it yourself must be much, much worse!!
No wonder this country is f*cked up……even simple legislation isn’t simple to the brain dead politicians here!!
Maybe this law should be classed as pornography……after all it is a completed f*cked in full view of the public.
