Britain Bans Violent Pornography
Awesome. Are you paying attention, Vic Toews? If not, I can send it again. Excellent news for those of us who value women's lives over the supposed rights of pornographers and masochists to exploit them.
Three years in prison for possession of violent pornography is now the law of the land.
The prosecutors in this case established a clear causal link between the murderer's possession & consumption of violent pornography and the murder, something which many have been arguing for a very long time now.
Trial jurors had been told of his obsession with strangulation and how he looked at internet sites connected with the fetish.
It is already a crime to make or publish such images but proposed legislation will outlaw possession of images such as "material featuring violence that is, or appears to be, life-threatening or is likely to result in serious and disabling injury".
This is a good day for women's desires to have their rights to be treated as equal human beings fulfilled. It's only a first step, and the need for a definition of "violent pornography" is still required, but it's much better than nothing.
