I'm still glad BME is Canadian!

Canada today legalized sex clubs (more, more). This isn't a big deal to me because I'm into hanging out at sex clubs and enjoy what lies behind the members-only door — it's a big deal to me (and by proxy, to you too) because this Supreme Court trial sought to define what “obscenity” is under Canadian law. Traditionally obscenity is defined by “community standards”, which basically means that if you're not “average”, you're a criminal. This trial redefined “obscene” as something which actually does harm. That is, if you can't show that a type of activity (or pornography) actually causes harm to people (in a bad way), it's not legally obscene and you can't be prosecuted for it.

I've always had a worry that maybe BME would be charged with obscenity violations since it covers behavior that's so unusual from the point of view of the average person… And that broke my heart to think about because I know that BME is there to help people and I believe that it does so. And now, because I can show over and over and over again that BME is not only not harmful, but actually helpful, it's effectively made us immune from this type of prosecution in our homeland.

Which makes this a very good day!

I guess though that this, along with support for gay marriage, adds yet another reason for Jesusland to keep on threatening Canada with trade sanctions and embargoes… Thank “god” though that civilized nations are finally moving away from these ridiculous laws of Allah (or whatever crazy religion it is that's being pushed by America and Saudi Arabia and the rest of the fascist theocracies). I was getting really sick and tired of being told what I can and can not do by someone else's imaginary “friend”.

Wow Shannon, that's really annoying! What is it, 1997 on Geocities? Retroweb is NOT cool!
