Am I a Stew?
I wonder how long it is before rappers cant call girls bitches and talk about fucking them on records anymore lol.
The world will surely mourn the loss of this integral part of artistic culture
Just because you do not like dose not mean others dont. And just because people like you dont like dose not mean it should ever be banned.
I like all sorts of hip hop, much of which dose not consist of this type of topic matter. Lots of which dose.
I'm not gunning for legislative regulation on your rap songs. I'm just saying it's no skin of my nose if they are banned. What bothers me is when the government tries to take away our right to make moral choices.
You probably don't have to worry about it being banned, as long as any one of these doesn't apply:
*Whether "the average person, applying contemporary community standards", would find that the work, taken as a whole, appeals to the prurient interest,
*Whether the work depicts or describes, in a patently offensive way, sexual conduct or excretory functions specifically defined by applicable state law,
*Whether the work, taken as a whole, lacks serious literary, artistic, political, or scientific value.
And yet it's often the minority (not the average person) that causes things to be banned or censored or for new laws to be introduced or modified, for new standards to be set, etc..
REALLY pisses me off.
Australian laws are a dangerous mix of out dated and whatever gives the intended image.
Australia is seriosuly going down the shit hole.
We used to be known for being a very relaxed and easy going people , whilst we were known for being friendly we always have also been pretty tough as far as we have always had a real good sense of humor. So much so that we have been considered racist all across the world because people couldn't understand our humor and lack of being offended or taking jokes seriously.
Like the way things used to be here, men were men, blokey, and our sense of humour now would just be considered racist or sexist or etc now.
Unfortunately we're just follwing suit and turning out like American in many ways and like England and etc in others.
In some cases exceeding.
It's all about political corectness. It is ruining our once great country.
As it is with the entire western world.
The education syetem, political correctness, the lefties, feminazis, do gooders, the main stream media is turning everyone into pussies and spreading the victim mentality and you are seeing people having to make public appoligies for making a joke or expressing an opinion.
People are being convicted and labled criminals for doing nothing wrong.
It's somehow become racist to care about your own country and own way of life and culture.
I fear our great game of AFL is in danger.
The violence against women campaign is being pushed so hard that we recently had a situation where a man made a joke about drowning a women (it was banter and a joke on the radio, talking famous people here, they were doing a charity event that involved sliding into ice water) and this women got offended and the dude had to make his expalnation, then public appoligy, he is the president of a football club and now their sponser is considering withdrawing and etc etc and people acting like it was a for real murder plot and threat and saying it encouraged violence against women.
The shit is a joke.
Actually Australia has been racist and discriminating for a very long time even in recent years.
