Defining Obscenity

A 3-part process, in part:

The basic guidelines for the trier of fact must be: (a) whether "the average person, applying contemporary community standards" would find that the work, taken as a whole, appeals to the prurient interest, Roth, supra, at 489, (b) whether the work depicts or describes, in a patently offensive way, sexual conduct specifically defined by the applicable state law, and (c) whether the work, taken as a whole, lacks serious literary, artistic, political, or scientific value.

(*Cough* I think that includes just about EVERY personal journal on this site.)


To be considered obscene, material must also be deemed: "utterly without redeeming social value"

Well there goes ALL OF LIVEJOURNAL! Especially you girls who take 10,000 open -mouthed photos, or macro shots of your assholes. The whole of livejournal is worthless, so quit your bitching.

Censorship is a pain, huh?

You must miss your lives in third world countries very much. I pity you all.
