China: Anti Porn, Anti Choice, Anti You

Make no mistake my dear friends, China doesn’t like you.

I say you, as I imagine I am most likely preaching to the choir, as whoever reads my article will most likely be of an open mind and or producing some adult videos of their own.

China had decided that it’s citizens should not have the ability to view any adult media in their country on “their” browsers and computers. China had tried to maintain its wholly imagined squeaky clean image by taking a stand against porn. A totalitarian regime is never satisfied until it has consolidated all the power available to it. And, China’s leaders sure would love to tout this feather in their cap. It would beat the drum toward their March toward moral superiority.

Though, to spoil their impressive effort, porn has a foothold that China can’t move. Porn is tied to business and a poke at business would be problematic for their burgeoning international relations and their interest in a free market economy. Smartly, for these same reasons, China’s citizens recognize the importance of porn in this instance. And, just for these same reasons it is a battle they can win. For its citizens, porn represents something much larger than the enjoyment of high definition moans and groans. Rather porn has become a weapon of the abused, which for them come along very rarely.

China debates sex change rules

From BBC Worldwide:

BBC News, Beijing

Liu Xiaojing, a transsexual, attends a news conference promoting Miss Plastic Surgery Contest, 2004
Liu Xiaojing is one of just a few well-known transsexuals in China

China is set to formalise the rules covering sex change operations to ensure that all those who want surgery meet certain requirements.

Those who apply for a sex change must be single, over 20 and have wanted the surgery for at least five years.

The proposed new guidelines, posted on the ministry of health's website, have been distributed for public discussion.

There could be hundreds of thousands of Chinese people wanting the surgery, news reports suggest.
