I just got the lay of the land from it.
Or how the child protection act works
A lot of people get legal aspects wrong. It's good to point that out.
I'm not sure if all the details are known yet and I will wait for a more competent source to comment on the finer aspects of it.
Guess they want to change meaning of term child exploitation so their soldiers can't be accused of that anymore
From the TITLE that sounds good, but for some reason I smell a rat.
How do you decide age of something that doesn't exist?
Drawings =/= children. I make exception in cases of pedos drawing real kids. But hentai? Imaginary?
It's blanket banning rule
Now that I think about it I think they tried it before.. Around time when there was leak about their soldiers raping kids.. Think it's smoke screen? Are we to expect another Un fucked up news?
Either way if they do first thing I'll do is report all historical art pieces that have drawn naked children :D
What is SNC in this context?
@4AM_critter 🐉 probably *SNC Lavalin*; one of the largest engineering and construction firms in the world
Ok Zucc, ban Al Jazeera and AJ+ now
Tim covered this yesterday. Here is that article.
“ I doubted Jussie Smollett. It breaks my heart that I might be right. “
By Nana Efua Mumford on The Washington Post
The “ journalist “ that wrote this article is so afraid that people will see this event for what it is. A conspiracy between leftist to cast Trump supporters as violent, murderous racist. She fears this so much that she would rather this be a real modern day lynching, than a poorly orchestrated hoax for attention.
“ Telling women not to drink during pregnancy ‘sexist’
On the Telegraph
Feminist attempts to convince pregnant woman to drink even though she admits that the “ it was impossible to establish the safe levels of exposure to alcohol during pregnancy “. Doctors give the pragmatic advice not to drink at all. Feminist apparently think that’s sexist.
"senior academics" you mean card carrying "Intersectional party members"
"it was impossible to establish the safe level of exposure to alcohol during pregnancy" that's why you're not supposed to drink while pregnant
But muh sexism
Mr. Jones...what is that shirt?
I'm quite depressed with the state of mainstream "pro-freespeech" and "pro-journalism" organizations. In Anglosphere, there was ACLU turning against free expression after having already defended KKK in the past (yet now probably cares more about transfeelings than free speech of not-even-serious shitlords), and pro-journalists calling for censorship.
From my perspective, I didn't know if to laugh or to fume with anger when Suuri Journalistipalkinto 2018 (Great Journalism Prize 2018) candidates were announced. They are in four categories: Year's Hit Story, Year's Journalist Activism, Year's Book, Year's Journalist
Each category with three nominees.
Year's Hit Story contained most variance and least bias, although even it contained one entry under #MeToo, and it was a nontroversy/manhunt of Finnish movie and theater industry. They didn't even find out actual sexual harassment so they connected being a harm director to work with as worthy of #MeToo. A total witch hunt.
Year's Journalistic Activism contained all non-sense entries and was the category that got me the most angry:
- the activists protesting agaisnt Trump-Putin summit in Helsinki because Trump is supposedly against freespeech (surprizingly not much to say about Putin actually being against it, funny enough)
- "critical reading of media" project that visited schools all over Finland... obviously about harms of believing what ALTERNATIVE media says and not about what MSM says
- "Protecting responsible journalists and condemning Fake News" with recipient beign the state of Finland itself. And by protecting "responsible" journalists means, standing AGAINST alternative media, prohibiting it's publication freedom and pushing hatespeech charges.
Year's Book contained three entries, two of which were explicitly feminist. Year's Journalist category I don't know the history of nominees well enough to even comment on.
@Stefan Payne Navratilova does not sound like german name tho, more like some kind of slavic
Yes, its IIRC Ukrainian.
