Yes, and what is or isn't erotic is pretty subjective anyway.

What about sadistic literary depictions of murder? There doesn't seem to be as much controversy about them.

Because murder isn't an issue that bored painkiller-addicted suburban housewives care about.

Voted no by accident. Oops.

If it's not causing any individual any actual harm, there's simply not reason for it to be illegal. The state has more useful functions than censoring erotic literature, anyway.

Yes they do - they care about their supply of sadistic murders to read about.

That has got to be one of the most retarded proposals I have read on this forum.

Don't worry, I'm sure more will crop up shortly.

Wait, wait, wait... reading between the lines here and in a different thread... is everyone's favourite Southern Californian Suburban Anarchist also a nonce?

guilty until proven innocent is usually how it works for this accusation in the States, so absolutely - just like everyone else here.

I'm not making any accusations, I'm just a little on the concerned side, so to speak.

Al, you're a dick.  A smug, pretentious, arrogant, rude, insufferable dick.  It seems like half of what you do on this site is act like an utter asshole to me and everyone else on your little blacklist.  So please, kindly f#ck off and go f#ck yourself.

And no, I am not a nonce.  I simply find censorship repugnant.

Displaying passion when defending child erotica is a little weird.

EDIT: Did I really just type that phrase? Jesus. *showers frantically*

I would say yes as no one is harmed by the creation/distribution/possession/etc of said depictions.

As long as it's "literature" and not a how-to, yes, of course.

Agreed.

Exactly. An exception should not be made for sex-related literature.

The problem is that he is a mod, so you cant put him on ignore. Otherwise I wouldn't mind it.

EDIT: It is only in the International Election thread you cant do it, so ignoring him in the other threads is a solution to you Twilight Sparkle.

But why would anyone want to? From what I've read, he's one of the most insightful posters here.

As for the actual question, the answer is of course, is there an actual contest here?
