The original start of the news. http://www.northnews.cn/2012/0408/744375.shtml Good luck translating this yourself.

It's a horrifyingly discriminatory world.

This is news? China has always been strict against this kind of stuff. The law is shit there but it's still the law, and if you break it, you can be expected to be prosecuted.

It's the first time they ever made a example out of BL/Yuri authors. And specifically Sherlock Holmes ones. The anime/comic ones ignored.
