Penis, Penis, Penis: Censorship's Absurdity

11/22/2011 08:33 am ET | Updated Jan 22, 2012

Penis, penis, penis. Breast, breast, breast. Vagina, vagina, vagina. Buttock, buttock, buttock. We all got 'em.

New rule: Censorship can only get more absurd the more you practice it.

First, China continues to harass artist Ai Weiwei, investigating him for pornography for being in a picture with nude women. Then, the Guardian reports, protestors strip and take pictures of themselves with his pictures over their privates.

Then @aliklay -- director of a movie about the artist -- reports on Twitter that when she posted the Guardian's photo, Facebook killed her account.

Then, in mockery, I posted Picasso's Nude and Still Life to my Facebook page. I tweeted that.

The bit.ly link to the Picasso work brought a warning. One can only assume it was because nudity followed.

How absurd can this get? We all have dicks, pussies, boobs, and asses. The words don't hurt. The pictures don't hurt. What hurts is the censors, nannies, and chickenshits who would "protect" us from God's creation. Jeesh.
