On or about March 23, 2015, the fine folks at Blogger will mark The Poultry Report as hosted on their servers as Private so that only I can see the content (source). My blog won’t be alone. I’m sure thousands if not tens of thousands or more will disappear because someone has an issue with nudity and other adult topics. So much for free speech. As of today, I’ve moved my blog to where you see it now, WordPress.

The move is in progress so the look of the new site might change. I’m still using the same template that I picked when I created the WordPress version years ago when I experimented with it versus Blogger.

Perhaps it is easier to objectify bare chests on women than it is on men and likely this will always be so. It is an erogenous zone, after all. And as much as I decry the inequality between men and women on this issue, I often look at other women with a bit of lascivious glee, clothed or not. I like boobs but I can understand some of the reasoning behind Blogger’s policy change.

I can’t help wonder, though, if Google/Blogger will crack down on violent images. Which is more harmful … a picture of a woman’s breast being caressed or one being carved at with a knife? Frequent exposure to anything will desensitize a person to the stimulus it provides. That’s one of the reasons the Romans held The Games. Let Citizens see violence and they will become accustomed to it. Frankly, I’d rather see more breasts and hope I don’t get bored.

Since my efforts with have to been focus on Second Life I’ll abstain from delving into the nanny state concept behind all of this. Perhaps I’ll tackle it in the future if I can find an SL tie-in.

Adieu, Blogger. Auf Wiedersehen. Arrivederci. Vaarwel. Good-bye.
