Yeah i got my girlfriend to send me a porn comic with, ahem, younger-looking characters i bought by accident in Japan (in a bag! and i nearly bought the one next to it too which might have been different), on the 5th i took it to work and put it in the clinical waste bins to be sent for incineration. A fitting end for something so "dangerous" eh?

Still at least we're not in Australia, apparently there the censors are banning real porn videos with proven over-18 actresses in them if they are too 'flat chested'. Still want a Monaro, though...

Nah, i do have some Yaoi books*, one with a quite "boyish" character, but luckily they covered thier backs by saying that all characters depicted are intended to be over 18...

On the other hand, i hope nobody has the 2012 olympics logo cached in thier computer! You know what people says that looks like, and she's supposed to be 8. Abstract design is no excuse! It's obviously just been photoshopped to try and get around the law. Clearly the entire country must be jailed NOW to protect us.

*-Made in Britain too! And the writer of the story in question was the one who sold it to me and signed it. Though no doubt if i was arrested the papers would report i had "Japanese cartoons" because they a foreign and thus "the other". Though i find it interesting this stuff was suddenly the 'monster of the week' when Lost Girls was nearing release. I may call him Alan Overrated but he is certianly good at rocking the boat. The red cowards in charge were trying to prevent the release through the medium of child-worship, luckily they were too slow. All these anti-patriotic traitors will be disposed of in the next civil war.

How exactly do you determine the age of a cartoon character?

I await Alan Moore and Melinda Gebbie's reaction to this with interest. I would imagine Lost Girls should be on the banned list now...

They should do so on aesthetic grounds. Basically, it's crap.

debate in committee, those arguing for the law were clear that they hoped it would apply even to a few lines scrawled by an individual on a piece of paper for their own enjoyment: and Government Minister Maria Eagle wanted the widest possible interpretation of the law to prevent individuals adding alien characteristics to images, and claiming they were not human.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maria_Eagle

For the following election Eagle was selected to stand for election for Labour in Garston, through on this occasion through an all-women shortlist [1]. This method of selection was subsequently declared illegal in January 1996

When she was first elected to parliament in 1997 she joined her twin sister, Angela Eagle, who had been elected at the previous parliament,

On 17th May 2009 the Daily Telegraph revealed that Eagle had claimed £3,500 for the refurbishment of the bathroom of her Liverpool home property, then switched her second home designation to a different property just four months later. Eagle voted in favour of legislation which would have kept MPs expense information secret
