Schools and Childcare Centres Against Blowing Out Candles

truethat.jpg

Following on from a story we published a little while ago titled “Are People These Days TOO clean?”, the regulatory health board has issued some new standards. Children will be forbidden from blowing out candles on birthday cakes under strict new hygiene rules for childcare. Doctors are already claiming that the latest National Health and Medical Research Council are essentially “bubble-wrapping kids” Child care staff will now have to wash toys, doorknobs, and floors and cushion covers at the end of every day and advise that children who want to blow out a candle on their birthday should bring their…

UK Passes Same-Sex Marriage Bill

gay-marriage-729-620x349.jpg

The UK has officially joined the handful of countries enabling Gay Marriage to be officially recognised after much debate between religious and conservative groups. The Marriage Bill – often referred to as the Same Sex Couples Bill – will enable same-sex couples to marry in both civil and religious ceremonies. Couples who have previously entered into civil partnerships can now translate their relationship into a government-recognised marriage. There have been multiple comments throughout the debate with Roger Gale even calling the bill ‘Orwellian’ but Prime Minister David Cameron stands strong behind the bill claiming it will make the UK stronger….

Mainstream Media and Researchers Link Heavy Music With Troubled Kids Yet Again.

7rq5y4kb.png

Well – should we even be surprised that News Corp affiliated research institutes have cropped up with the claims that music – in this case, Metal takes the blame again – can have a severe effect on a teenager’s behaviour? In an article named “How a teen’s iPod can tell you if they will be trouble” the assumption made from a hardly-conclusive 309-teen survey is that those who listen to the heavy stuff are more likely to be troublesome teens. (And of course, the headline using the term ‘iPod’ instead of ‘portable music player’ is evidence enough of the conformity)…

Grand Theft Auto Is AGAIN Blamed for Massacre.

Lets-blame-GTA-AGAIN.png

We wanted to cover this story…but then we realised we have already done so time and time again – so in a way, this is a friendly ‘bump’ for our lengthy feature regarding video games and the blame they take for violent psychopaths. Meet Jack Thompson : An Annoyingly Conservative Activist Jack Thompson has always been infamous for his constant blame-the-game antics in which he would represent alleged murderers that were under the age of 18 with the excuse that “they did it because they saw the digital person do it”. Jack is what the violence in games activism world…

The ITU UN Treaty for Internet Regulation Has Been Blocked.

Signatures-Against-the-treaty.png

The UN’s International Telecommunication Union (ITU) has failed in its attempt to revise – and practically encourage censorship – state regulations on the internet. Major western UN Countries – including The US, Canada and The UK – have objected to calls for to have equal rights to the governance of the internet and the treaty’s proposal has now been shelved. “It’s with a heavy heart and a sense of missed opportunities that the US must communicate that it’s not able to sign the agreement in the current form,” said Terry Kramer the US ambassador to the World Conference on International…

Australia’s New Law Proposal to Make “Offending” People a Felony.

Australia as seen in 2013

I’ve ranted plenty of times about how Nicola Roxon and her band of misfits is a controlling Big Brother-inspired bag of sluttery and that Roxon should go fuck herself with her freedom-reducing policies but you literally CAN NOT make this shit up. New proposals have been brought forward for anti-discrimination laws which would actually make the first paragraph — and undoubtedly, the rest of this article —  illegal. The recently proposed laws would allow citizens to fill the court rooms and enforce criminal action over anyone who hurts another person’s feelings. If you approach me in the street with your…

Web Censorship 2012: An Angry Letter to Nicola Roxon and Stephen Conroy

Let's see how he likes it.

As someone who has spent a lot of time reporting on fascist politicians and who has equally shared disgust for draconian scumbags with the taste of freedom leaving a sour retention on their tongues, I figured it would be appropriate to approach Australian MP Nicola Roxon and Communications Minister Stephen Conroy (Cuntroy) regarding her support for the censorship of Australia’s internet and the cries regarding so-called “Twitter Trolls” This has been covered extensively on WordswithMeaning! by fellow author Cask J. Thomson so if you are not up to date, here is some reading material: Australia’s Nicola Roxon Pushing the “Big…

Celebrities vs. Twitter Trolls. Why Walking Away Is Better Than Involving Politicians & the Law.

Trolls-on-Twitter.jpg

    The first rule of social media – and practically the internet – is that you shouldn’t feed the trolls. Quickly, if you don’t know what a troll is: it’s someone who intentionally pisses you off or says something vile to kick start a reaction. They gain pleasure from knowing that they annoyed you. “Feeding” the trolls basically means that you’re reacting and that is what they want, so they’ve achieved something! Getting the police involved is a pathetic measure. These days what happens online barely leads to action happening offline. By this, I’m implying that unless any damage…

High School Students in Trouble for Hi-5’s, Handshakes and Contact Sports.

MC-Hammer-a01.jpg

A group of year 6 students at an Australian high school have dramatically protested over a decision to encompass a ban on sports that require contact as well as forbidding all physical contact including high-fives, friendly hugs (even if it’s just two tween One Direction loving females) and anything that requires the touching of another person – which, according to teachers, includes bro hugs and handshakes. After a little demonstration against the fact that their parents had no say in the school’s new policy – the students were reportedly congregated in the school’s gym where they were told off by…

Australian Olympians With Guns? Totally Outrageously…not Shocking.

2nrfpy1.jpg

This story came to my attention a day or so ago, and although I wasn’t offended by the photograph or the Olympians pictured – I was still offended. By whom was I strictly insulted by? The Australian media, and, more specifically, the tight-arse conservatives who went as far (and as quickly) to say that these guns were of bad taste due to the events that happened more than 15 years ago. Take this excerpt from The Sun Herald for instance: The pair smiled and looked smug as they handled automatic pistols and pump-action shot guns similar to those used in…
