This is an important civil liberties campaign:
Large numbers of law-abiding people who pose no threat to society will be criminalised. Examples include:Please consider supporting it.
* ~ the BDSM community - an estimated 10% of the adult population, i.e. up to 4 million people (a News of the World survey found that around 50% of people had at sometime engaged in some form of BDSM activity)
* ~ the Goth community, members of which enjoy material featuring depictions of deaththat could easily be counted as pornographic under the proposed definition
* ~ people who own low-budget thrillers/horror films
Anyone who falls foul of this law is to be placed on the Sex Offenders Register. So the SOR will cease to concentrate on paedophiles and genuinely dangerous offenders, and its importance will be correspondingly diluted.
