“Chinese writer sentenced to 10 years in prison for homoerotic book.”
An authoress was imprisoned for writing about ‘boys love’ – no not boy love, but homoerotic fiction. The popularity of this genre “has soared in recent years in China, where a booming cottage industry of self-published authors churn out hundreds of new titles each month. The production and sale of pornography remains strictly prohibited in China. However, the harsh punishment given to Liu has caused outrage among social media users, many of whom have expressed anger at the apparent discrepancy between her sentence and those given to violent criminals, pointing out that under Chinese criminal law, rapists are liable to receive between three to ten years. Many users questioned the country’s conservative attitude and asked why the government felt the need to police people’s private lives.”
This is one of many things that happen, where people in government have lost their personal connection with humanity, and empathy…and respect for human life.
Fanatics would love to have this exact sort of thing happening, in the USA.
