Today, it becomes illegal in England and Wales to own ‘extreme pornographic images’ as new legislation is brought into force.

As Monmouth points out,this law has raised relatively little interest in mainstream media, and critical coverage has been scant. That’s not encouraging, given most professional journalists’ sensitivities about any attempts to nibble away at our freedoms of expression. But this one is difficult to mobilize public opinion against.‘ Because, yup, no one wants to be seen supporting the perverts.

Even The Guardian, reporting today, takes the disappointing angle that a) the law’s not *that* bad really and b) women’s groups claim it doesn’t go far enough. As Backlash say, ‘Many people assume that “violent pornography” is only of interest to men, and no sane woman would enjoy or even tolerate it.‘ And of course, this is utter bollocks.

All in all, a grim day for kinksters and for everyone’s civil liberties.

Because I am slightly ashamed of how much I enjoyed Twilight. Mind you, a man this pretty who sparkles in the sunlight? What chance did I have?

Who’da thunk it – ‘sigh’ rhymes with ‘thigh’. And, um, ‘couch’ with ‘pouch’. Please create your own poetry.

We’re feeling a little bit famous on ECW this week because we got a wonderful write up on super-smart UK feminist blog, The F-word. Do check it out!

Hope you’re enjoying all the man candy. Hey, how could you not? Mat and I have a lot on our fiction plates right now (yay!) but we’ll be getting mouthy again in February. In the meantime, stay tuned for regular, um, stress-relief on Mondays!
