One of the things that irritates me the most is hearing liberals tell me how good it is to be European. “They have a better quality of life, shorter work weeks, paid vacation, socialized medicine, blah, blah, blah.” Here is the latest perk for the Eurotrash:
Sexist or raunchy images on television or in advertising could be banned across the European Union under a directive being considered in Brussels.
Anna Diamantopoulou, the Greek commissioner for social affairs, has ordered an internal study of gender questions outside the workplace, it was confirmed last night.
But officials said discussions were still in their early stages, with different commission departments being asked for their views, and some already strongly opposed.
“This is a trial balloon,” insisted one well-placed source. “No decision has yet been taken.”
Such a directive could have implications for Europe’s media, advertising and insurance industries, and could stop TV programmes that stereotyped women – or men – and ban advertising that did not “respect human dignity”.
That would mean no more of this:

What is wrong with these people?
I do not think there is a better indicator of the complete disconnect between the EU idiots and those who they would rule than this psycho babble. For g*d’s sake, the Beeb did full frontal nudity in their soaps in the 1970’s, on broadcast tv, not cable.
The Canadian experience w/ the MacKinnon/Dworkin anti-p0rn laws should be instructive.
Having passed laws that were rooted in the MacKinnon/Dworkin thesis that p0rn is fundamentally anti-woman, the first items that were picked up by Canadian police were anthologies of lesbian literature. Of course M/D claimed that THAT was not their intention.
Doesn’t matter, though. Intent of the law passes into the ether once the law’s on the books, after all….

What’s wrong with them?
They were born.
And they continue to steal MY oxygen!
