Tits, Tits, TITS!

“Congress is weighing legislation that would up the maximum penalty for indecency violations from $27,500 to $500,000 per incident.”(Source: MTV, March 19th)

I just googled the word “tits” and found the above picture.

Shocking, isn’t it?

Now, having seen those tits, those, boobs, those knockers, baps, mams, hooters, those boy magnets, you will be corrupted FOREVER!

Thank our lord in heaven that the brave moral authorities of the USA are protecting their citizens from any more bared women’s chests. Janet Jackson’s tit must have caused untold harm and depraved millions of viewers. She should be shot simply for having two of them! Now, the US’ moral arbiters are cracking down on grand old words like FUCK . For Howard Stern – that’s 50% of his vocabulary censored. But he must understand, hearing the word FUCK renders the listener instantly evil – everyone knows that.

Of course, you can switch on your TV in Amerika (or the UK) and see men boxing any time you want. Men inflicting permanent brain damage on each other for piles of money and your entertainment: that’s wholesome family fun!

I must be mad then. Because I’d rather see blokes on telly kissing than punching the fuck out of each other. We shiver in moral outrage at the gladiators of ancient Rome but we’re no better: we pay men to kill each other and themselves for our sport.

But back to tits…

Here’s my problem with tit censorship: tits aren’t evil.

Women aren’t evil, as much as certain branches of organised religions try to label them as such. Women’s bodies, women’s sexuality, women’s genitalia – none of that is evil. It’s just flesh, just the human body. Get used to it. It’s what we are.

What message do you send out when you censor bare breasts? By implication, you’re saying there’s something evil, sinful, something dirty about them.

Why has the whole of the US gone mad over Janet Jackson’s tit? Why aren’t those column inches and letters of outrage aimed at the fact that they have a war criminal for president and have illegally invaded and occupied Iraq?

What kind of mentality is more motivated into protest by the sight of an exposed breast than the carnage in Iraq?
