People tend to get on soap boxes for the attention more than anything else.

Going after TV porn is like worrying about leaving a tap running once the dam wall has broken. These activists must know this which makes their motives highly suspect in my opinion.

It's low-hanging fruit. It's easy to drum up public sympathy for "think of the children" and the "evils of porn." But it's the start of the wedge towards censorship, which is their ultimate aim. They only want to be broadcast what they consider to be "wholesome entertainment" and no-one else's opion would carry any weight with them.

Governments tend to like this. They set up an unmonitored blacklist controlled by an agency that reports to no-one, then put websites on there that they dislike. Especially ones critical of the government.

It turns out that people don't WANT a porn filter, when given free choice.

But of course, the people in the article doesn't like the idea of free choice.

Cooke added that the channels, which showed shows such as “Girls Behaving Badly”, “Backdoor Bikini MILFs”, “The Secret Lives of Kept Wives”, and “Young Harlots: Carnal Education”, did not portray the “conventional” sex represented on behalf of ODM to Icasa during the initial application.

Among Cooke’s complaints, was the lack of eye-gazing couples in loving relationships, and “unhealthy” females used in the shows.
LMFAO...this Darryl Cooke guy. It is almost as if he wants his porn to pass a series of approvals before he deems it acceptable. Ironically, there is porn available to cater for exactly his tastes!

Why doesn't he just suggest a porn channel/genre that he deems acceptable and be done with it.

Yeah I'd rather prefer the killing scenes an shows like 'Strike Back'. I fast forward though the sex scenes with my eyes closed.

Boys got a romance fetish.

Ja, taking issue with content that everyone agrees is only meant for adult consumption anyway kind of shows their real intentions. They're not interested in protecting kids, they want to control what people in general are able to watch.

Actually, taking issue with the licencing process just highlights how unconstitutional the process is.

I'm actually good with this. Let's make EVERY TV show pass the same approvals process. No more GoT. No more reality shows. No more American-made movies. I think this is a good step to clearing all content on TV.

You don't have to like it....

That's not a reason to deny other people the right to see it though.

Oh yeah? And, what about the majority of women in first world countries who view porn?

Porn is relevant in that its about freedom of choice.

If you are stopping someone else from watching it then you are forcing your morals on someone else.

Why the fuss?

What's so wrong about ODM lying in their application? Surely everyone is entitled to lie in their representations? This is what lawyers are for!

I'm sure our soaps convey healthy relationships and safe sex :whistling:
Hell, just look at a FAMILY based sitcom like "Two and a Half Men". Real healthy relationships and safe sex going on there.
