Not Burning As Many Books After All

I recently pointed you towards a controversy over some erotica writers being dropped or restricted from popular publishing services, which is related to this blog's concerns of relationship rights and freedom of expression. Now, the powers involved have apparently pulled back somewhat in their restrictions. Techcrunch.com reports that "PayPal Updates Erotica Policy: Target Is Specific Books With Obscene Images" and also of note is pcpro.co.uk's report that the EFF is calling for payment neutrality after PayPal's U-turn.

To find one of the many human voices threatened in this matter, see "Dirty Mind vs Debit Card: Women Desire Taboos in Their Erotica" at Eden Connor Writes. The blogger interviews M. Keep, aka Anjasa.

To prevent spam, comments will have to be approved, so your comment may not appear for several hours. Feedback is welcome, including disagreement. I only delete/reject/mark as spam: spam, vulgar or hateful attacks, repeated spouting of bigotry from the same person that does not add to the discussion, and the like. I will not reject comments based on disagreement, but if you don't think consenting adults should be free to love each other, then I do not consent to have you repeatedly spout hate on my blog without adding anything to the discourse.

If you want to write to me privately, then either contact me on Facebook, email me at fullmarriageequality at yahoo dot com, or tell me in your comment that you do NOT want it published. Otherwise, anything you write here is fair game to be used in a subsequent entry. If you want to be anonymous, that is fine.

IT IS OK TO TALK ABOUT SEX IN YOUR COMMENTS, BUT PLEASE CHOOSE YOUR WORDS CAREFULLY AS I WANT THIS BLOG TO BE AS "SAFE FOR WORK" AS POSSIBLE.
