    Jakarta Censors Exhibit Thigh-Phobia Symptoms! 

    Through an official statement issued on its website, the Indonesian Broadcasting Commission (KPI) issued a stern warning to 11 television stations that aired Blackpink Shopee ads and the “Shopee Road to 12.12 Birthday Sale” event.



    And that’s another lurch into desolation, surely, arguably made worse if the claim is true that the KPI’s kill-joy commissars are not merely succumbing to pressure from backward petitioners against the delightful and not remotely offensive advert..

    …but were ALREADY fretting over ‘respect for politeness norms stipulated in the Broadcasting Broadcasting Code and Broadcast Program Standards (P3SPS) Guidelines.’

    Like, uh, what is IMPOLITE about those attractive, well-dressed girls?

    Answer- nothing at all!

    But now no less than eleven tv stations have been warned against the thigh menace…


    Shock Horror – it’s a thigh!


    OMG! Another thigh!


    …and threatened with ‘sanctions’

    KPI commissioner Dewi Setyarini denied that her wet-blanket comrades had simply buckled to the wowsers.

    She insisted that the KPI team had submitted a complaint about the advertisement, long before the petition appeared demanding the removal of the advertisement.

    “We were actually discussing it last week (the advertisement),

    How that ad offends ‘politeness’ is nowhere explained, but the Indonesian word ‘kesopanan’ can also be translated as ‘decency…’

    ….so we have to ask once more –

    WHAT is ‘indecent’ about short skirts?

    Except in the narrow minds of fanatics, of whom, sadly, there are a lot here, like those sad people who present shariah costume as ‘Modest Fashion…’

    Offensive In Jakarta – Women Can Be Modest Without Being Sectarian! 

    ….a form of words grossly offensive to the millons of normal, polite, decent women who dress modestly every day but do not get their knickers in a twist about allowing us guys a glance at a nice knee…


    …a spot of cleavage, a shapely thigh or even a sexy shoulder!

    Who can forget the bizarre outburst from Suryadharma Ali, when he was President SBY’s Minister of Religious Affairs…

    .The Beat, Jakarta, 29th March 2012 –  Indonesia’s powerful Religious Affairs minister, Suryadharma Ali, has declared that miniskirts are pornographic and should be banned under tough new anti-porn laws.


    Appointed by President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono earlier this month to run the new task force into pornography, Ali told reporters in Jakarta yesterday that a set of universal criteria must be decided. He added that, “one criteria will be when anyone is wearing a skirt above the knee.”

    One might have hoped that when he was jailed for graft…


    …we’d hear no more such tripe, but…


    NB – although the sticky-beak moaners have amassed over 100,000 signatures for their anti-beauty moan, the pro-beauty petition has also been gathering more support, I’m told not far off 80,000 names.


    So there’s still hope for Indonesia’s future.

      So embarrassing for our KPI state censor to go back to the crazy thinking of Suryadharma Ali, who also was such a big embarrassment to Indonesia.
      PresidentJokowi promised a ‘Mental Revolution.”
      Now same like you say, we have Killjoy Desolation.

    Lloyds Bank Exalts Gaystapo Agenda – Protest, Brits! 

    The war on decency, public decency indeed, goes on in Britain, with a revolting ad recently released by Lloyds Bank! 

    Just in from the Coalition for Marriage…

    ….and the proper response must surely be – 

    If you have an account with this Lloyds lot, perhaps it’s time you didn’t.

    If you happen to be a share-holder, demand this issue be put to you and all the others who own the bank!


    Dear marriage supporter,

    Lloyds Bank is pursuing a sustained campaign to promote same-sex marriage and trample over the beliefs of people like you and me.

    The bank has a past record on this issue, but in recent months it has been waging a systematic and ‘in your face’ campaign for same-sex marriage.

    Its “He said yes” advert has been on TV and billboards, online and emblazoned on Lloyds branches:



    Lloyds was rescued in 2008, during the financial crisis, when the Government bailed out the bank with over £20 billion of taxpayers’ money. Without that support, the bank would almost certainly have folded. We still haven’t got all our money back. Surely it should show more respect to taxpayers and stop pushing offensive political campaigns like this.

    Please email Lloyds to complain:

    EMAIL: OnlineComplaints@Lloydsbank.co.uk

    If you are a Lloyds customer, please state this at the start of your email. You may want to consider moving to another bank. NB: do not quote any sensitive account information such as your account numbers.

    The activists who are suing Ashers Baking Co. in Northern Ireland say the infamous cake is part of a political campaign – this fact has been upheld by the courts. And two separate High Court cases in England and Wales have found that beliefs about same-sex marriage can be considered political beliefs.

    Perhaps Lloyds is trying to keep its award from Stonewall (announced in January this year) for being the “most inclusive employer in Britain”?

    Please let Lloyds know today how you feel.

    EMAIL: OnlineComplaints@Lloydsbank.co.uk

    Using your own words, you may wish to make one or two of the following points:

    • Ask why a bank is engaging in a controversial political campaign like this. It’s using customers’ money to promote causes they oppose.
    • Say that Lloyds was rescued with public money and should not denigrate the beliefs of many taxpayers.
    • Say that you believe marriage has always been the union of one man and one woman and that Lloyds is showing deep disrespect for your views.
    • Say that same-sex marriage is not popular – only a few thousand same-sex marriages have taken place.

    At C4M, we will keep on defending your beliefs about marriage.


    Your donations are secure and confidential.

      Banks should use advertisements to present a respectable image. Lloyd’s choosing this dubious pair to promote their services does precisely the opposite and I hope their share-holders as well as account holders do protest about this.
      incidentally, they are not the only bank who are on the gaystapo side. I think you took a swipe at an American or Canadian bank a year or two ago.
      You must also know that Donald Trump has a poor record on this.
      That was why I was not prepared to cheer his victory last year. His judgment is unsound, although I think that is more through indifference than wickedness.
