is that law saying that illustrated images of bestiality*/loli/shota = illegal still real because that is soooooo fucking absurd, like to the degree where its literally just angry confused people clasping at straws
*never saw that one officially covered anywhere but I heard it talked about quite a bit
Sections 63 to 67 of the Act make it an offence to possess pornographic images that depict acts which threaten a person’s life; acts which result in or are likely to result in serious injury to a person’s anus, breasts or genitals; bestiality; or necrophilia. They also provide for the exclusion of classified films etc. and set out defences and the penalties for the offence.
so yes if you think a 60 year old white heterosexual man wearing a mop on his head could possibly decide that the FurAffinity vore tag is “obscene” (hint: he can and probably would decide that) then guess what you will go to prison for it if it is convenient for them to send you there. these dipshit subjective tests like “is it obscene” or “is it realistic” are tools that the legal system uses to decide, independent of actual objective reality, who goes to prison, when, for how long, and why.
for example let’s say you get arrested at a peaceful protest against austerity. you have your ipad with you. even though you closed your safari tab before coming, a safari tab that was open to a vore/gore image on FurAffinity, wiretapping laws allow them to check the data records of your 3gs account, to see everything you’ve done and everything you’ve downloaded, uploaded, etc. you did not encrypt this data with tor or route it through a VPN because, hey, you weren’t doing anything wrong.
you are wearing all black clothes at the time of your arrest, because you are stylish as shit. but they think you’re “black bloc”. they decide you’re an anarchist, want to make an example of you, and use obscenity laws and their surveillance of your internet activity to fine or imprison you because “anarchism” isn’t technically criminalized yet but you sure as shit are doing SOMETHING wrong, so they’ll use it against you to get what they want: you in prison, you fined, you traumatized by arrest, all of which will discourage you from protesting ever again, and will discourage others because now you’re an example.
if the judge feels like putting you in prison, he will use every tool he has at hand to do so. and if that means deciding subjectively that the furry shota gore illustration on your ipad is a “realistic” portrayal of “bestiality” that “causes injury to the anus” of a “minor”, he can and will.
