UK: It certainly doesn’t stand for "unlimited kink"
So I would imagine pretty much everyone in the spanko world heard about this week’s new laws in the UK regarding restrictions in filming porn. Spanking and other related acts? No longer allowed. Which of course has a devastating effect on our friends producing video in the UK.
There is a ton of information about this situation out there, and also a whole lot of misinformation. For some thoroughly educational reads, I urge you to check out Alex’s post here, and also three posts from Pandora Blake, here, here and here. In Pandora’s posts, you’ll find a petition that UK residents can sign, and a place where all other regions can file a complaint.
It’s disheartening, really. A huge step backwards, and a reminder of how much ignorance and narrow-mindedness we’re up against.
Yesterday, I was tweeting back and forth briefly with Pandora, protesting the new laws, and then some guy chimed in out of nowhere: “Its [sic] a great law. You broads should get decent honourable [sic] jobs.”
I know better, kids. I really do. I know not to engage with fucktards like this. But I was in a mood. And you know how I am when I’m a mood.
So I tweeted back: “And you assholes can keep your opinions to yourselves.”
Which then thrust me headlong into a cyber cesspool. He started bombarding us with tweets about “web cam tramps” who “spend half the day sucking cock” and how we have no morals, etc. Then it got personal. He pulled up one of my pictures (my face) and started insulting it.
As if that weren’t enough, one of his cronies joined in. Reposted my face and tweeted: “Jesus Christ, is there really a market for granny porn?” The two of them proceeded to have a bit of back and forth, saying how pathetic and sad I am, trying to break into the “whore trade” at 60, and how I should be playing with my grandkids instead of trying to fuck them.
After I had a good cry, because I was just so fucking hurt and disgusted, I blocked and reported them both to Twitter. But it’s my own fault. I never, ever should have replied to that first idiot. However, I have to admit that I’m proud of this tweet:
“You broads should get decent honourable jobs.” Perhaps I should have been a scientist, studying how to ensure that jackasses don’t breed.
Soooo… this is the kind of shit we’re up against, kids. Some people really suck. However, I know the UK producers are not going to roll over for this. They will fight back. And they will have our support all the way.
(sigh) Think it’s time to step back and go be with my love. Have a great weekend, y’all.
