In a clear cut case of sex discrimination of my lingerie review videos got totally censored out by YouTube. In trying to justify the censorship they slandered me twice.
Lie number one: First they posted a notice saying the video had been removed as a violation of YouTube’s policy against spam, scams, and commercially deceptive content.
YouTube then issued a strike against my YouTube account along with a threat:
When I appealed pointing out that the allegation was bogus, YouTube then posted a different lie.
It occurred to me at this point that the “YouTube Community” may have been infiltrated by members of the AFA, the FRC, or their ilk.
When I Googled “Censorship Advocacy by Hate Groups” the top listing in the Google search was the Wikipedia entry on the American Family Association (AFA). Frank Russo, an on-air spokesman for the AFA of New York unabashedly states that the AFA positions are “Conservative Catholic values” and that homosexuality is sinful.
Although bigoted totalitarian right wing prudes often take extreme positions opposing any kind of nudity or even lingerie ads on the internet, their most aggressive false-flagging campaigns and vitriol are reserved for cross-dressers. Since I male-model ladies panties I find often find myself in their crosshairs. It is much easier for them to argue that men shouldn’t wear women’s clothing (sex discrimination) than it is to argue babies should be blindfolded while breast-feeding and that we should have been born with clothes on. The transphobic vitriol, discriminatory censorship and persecution do not end with the media and the internet, but it is there where the general public is fed a steady diet of lies and, with a few notable exceptions, where the truth gets buried.
Unfortunately as many of us have found out about censorship first hand by having our free speech and expression censored by large corporations who control the internet. Whether it is service providers or the large social networking sites who have attained anti-trust action worthy status, the result is the same. Agitation by a handful of haters and bigots often results in free speech and expression being stifled through straight up censorship. A couple of the large multitude of hater groups agitating for and bullying these corporations into doing the censorship are:
The Family Research Council also known as the FRC and the American Family Association have both been designated by the Southern Poverty Law Center as a Hate Groups , defined as an organized group or movement that advocates and practices hatred, hostility, or violence towards members of a race, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, or other designated sector of society. According to the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) hate groups’ “primary purpose is to promote animosity, hostility and malice against persons belonging to a race, religion, disability, sexual orientation, or ethnicity/national origin which differs from members of the organization”. Other Hate groups listed by the SPLC include 186 separate Ku Klux Klan groups with 52 websites and 196 neo-Nazi groups with 89 websites.
Just who are these people? James Dobson and Tony Perkins are among the many haters at the FRC, while Donald Wildman, Timothy Wildmon, Forrest Daniels, Curtis Petrev, Jack Williams, Burt Harper, Gayle Alexander, Forest Sheffield, Tim Fortner are Directors at the AFA. The AFA has 200 radio stations. Frank Russo and Frank Schroeder appear on many of their cable TV shows. Though they would probably deny being hate-mongers the version of “conservative Catholicism” they espouse paints all trans-people as sinful deviates.
On November 10th, 2011 the American Civil Liberties Union posted some under-reported news: Senate Rejects Resolution That Would Undermine Net Neutrality. Quoting the ACLU article: ” “By rejecting this unwise resolution to overturn net neutrality, the Senate has voted to protect the Internet and preserve its crucial role in advancing the artistic, intellectual, political and economic vitality of our nation,” said Christopher Calabrese, ACLU legislative counsel. “Without net neutrality, Americans’ access to the Internet would hinge not on our right to free speech but on the whims of the corporations that would control it.” “
In recent trans-phobic news, Bridgette Miller of Bust Magazine posted an article titled: “Transgender Woman Makes a Shirtless Statement“. Quoting that Bust Magazine article: “A trip to the DMV can be an exercise in patience for anyone—but for one transgender Tennessee woman, it became a fight for equality. Andrea Jones of Morristown, TN, went in to change her sex from male to female on her driver’s license; when her request was denied, she walked out to the parking lot and took her shirt off. She was arrested for indecent exposure, and argued that if the state recognized her as male, she had the right to be topless in public.” On July 7th of 1992 New York’s highest Court, the Court of Appeals of New York ruled in NY v Santorelli (80 N.Y.2d 875 600 N.E.2d 232) that laws prohibiting exposure of breasts were unconstitutional as they were based on gender and were not substantially related to any important governmental objective. All laws prohibiting the public exposure of female breasts were struck down since they contained “clear gender-based classification, triggering scrutiny under equal protection principles (see Craig v. Boren, 429 U.S. 190, 97 S. Ct. 451, 50 L.Ed.2d 397). Since this case is still the precedent, not only are bare breasts legal in the State of New York, but it is illegal to discriminate based on the gender of the person with exposed nipples. It would follow, logically, that it is also illegal to discriminate against a person modeling panties because of their gender.
YouTube and Google argue that if one is singled out for censorship they should not point to others who are NOT censored because that is not relevant to whether or not YouTube’s terms have been violated. That specious argument doesn’t hold water and is a transparent red herring argument for evading any questions about whether or not they practice discrimination in violation of Craig v. Boren, 429 U.S. 190, 97 S. Ct. 451, 50 L.Ed.2d 397 .
HYPOCRISY AND UNEQUAL TREATMENT
Photos of a man wearing ladies panties are occasionally treated as if they were hard-core pornography, rather than the standard modeling of lingerie that they actually are. By contrast lingerie manufacturers, newspapers, magazines, both broadcast and cable networks , internet companies and movie producers go out of their way to show women in their underwear. Women are seen in panties almost everywhere including on billboard advertising.
As long as it is a woman doing the modeling of women’s underwear, even the most sheer panties will generally not get censored, yet men get censored wearing opaque briefs merely because they are clothing associated with the opposite gender.
The pretty Pin Up Sheer Mesh Knickers carried by Pandora’s choice are see-through lingerie. There is nothing wrong with that whatsoever, nor is there anything wrong with nudity. As the title of a Lady Gaga album showing her bare bottom says, undeniably, we are “Born This Way” (naked).
We should dispense with the specious arguments and enjoy the look of beautiful lingerie.
Pandoras Choice also has a YouTube channel, Pandorasretro, where Pandora’s Choice has uploaded some nice slideshows, like this one, titled: “Lingerie and classic 1950s style womens underwear from pandoraschoice - YouTube”
The Style 4234 sheer black mesh nylon Pleated_Panty from Secrets In Lace is quite pretty, has nice feminine lace trimmed leg openings and are very much see-through except for the generous gusset.
The elomi Lara Brief Panty 8065 shown modeled back view at HerRoom is quite sheer except for a panel in the front.
As for the video that YouTube first claimed was spam, at one point lied claiming it was explicit and then lied again claimed it violated their policies, you can see for yourselves that it is NOT spam, NOT explicit, contains NO nudity and NO sexual content. Here is the video on Twitpic (no longer available for viewing on YouTube). There was no excuse for the video being flagged or even less excuse for putting a strike against my account for it.
I don’t know what else can be done about the gratuitous sex discriminatory censorship other than to oppose further mergers of these way too-powerful internet giants and perhaps join the ACLU in their fight for our freedom of speech and expression. If you feel being supportive like it you always could stop by my YouTube Channel and leave a comment or give my video uploads a Like (Thumb Up).
You can decline the adobe flask upgrade and then view the video with no problems.
PLEASE SHARE IT everywhere! What good is wearing pretty pink panties if nobody sees them? PLEASE SHARE THIS Video everywhere! Thanks.
