Friday Links!


It’s Friday!


I mean, wow, where did the week go?

Here’s a collection of news and other things that struck me as worthy of being shared:

Claiborne Richardson Wants Pictures of a Kid’s Cock. Richardson is an Assistant Attorney General in Manassas, Virginia, who is trying to prosecute a teen-age boy on the charge of “creating child porn” not because the teen-ager created porn, but because the teen-ager sent a picture of himself naked to his teen-age girlfriend. Claiborne has ordered police to take pictures of the kid naked, and then got a warrant from a judge ordering the kid to be taken to a hospital, pumped full of drugs to make him have an erection, and take pictures of him like that in order to prove that the pictures the kid sent his girlfriend are him. This is insane. If a kid taking a picture of himself naked with his cellphone is producing child porn, isn’t all this picture taking by the police also producing child porn?

About fontfolly

I've loved reading for as long as I can remember. I write fantasy, science fiction, mystery, and nonfiction. I used to publish an anthropomorphic sci-fi/space opera literary fanzine. I attend and work on the staff for several anthropormorphics, anime, and science fiction conventions. I live near Seattle with my wonderful husband, still completely amazed that he puts up with me at all.
