Kontroversi Miss Universe – Jangan Lupa Si Cantik2 Dari Jateng!


Amid the controversy over the outcome of the Miss Universe contest this month Miss Costa Rica sparks new Miss Universe controversy, too much attention, in my view, has gone to the peculiar organisation of the final and not enough to the fact that the beautiful Anindya Kusuma Putri, from Central Java, got into the final fifteen list.



In an archipelago teeming with lovely lasses (especially in Central Java!) just getting to be Miss Indonesia is a splendid achievement.

So today, a photo, two photos, actually, the one above …   http://www.beritanetizen.com/f/foto-hot-puteri-indonesia-2015-anindya-k-putri.html

…to remind you of Anindya’s magnificent good looks, and the other, below...



…to remind you of the depressingly uptight censorship here in Indonesia that has too many publishers shrouding impressive aspects of the female form with those ridiculous opaque smudges.

We see this nonsense on tv all the time, nothing askance thus hidden –  never mind offensive – simply puerile obeisance to  aurat hang-ups in high places.  

We’ve reported on it too, and more than once.

Dimana Bokong2nya? – Where Are Our Buttocks? 

It really is time for some brave people in the media to stand up to the censors and tell them to move on, to slough off their 19th century gloom-nasty mind-set.

Stop pandering to the backward sexist bigots of the kind that published that awful ‘Michelin Man’ image of what a woman should resemble, . 

Sexist shariah anti-women poster- ‘Fathers and husbands, their naughty bits are your responsibility!’


It’s NOT up to ‘Fathers and Husbands,‘ as the pathetic poster declares, to order grown-up gals how to dress.
