Also does hilarious research on 'sexting'.

The Western Australian Joint Standing Committee on the Commissioner for Children and Young People (aka the JSCCCYP, pronounced as written) has released The Commissioner for Children and Young People’s 2013 report on the Sexualisation of Children, proposing a variety of initiatives for action and research into the further protection of children in our western-most state. And along with additional parental education, regulation of child beauty pageants and better education for children, the committee believes Western Australia should ban R18+ video games.
Yes, proposal 5 in JSCCCYP’s report comes in two flavours, and flavour one is a comprehensive prohibition on the sale, supply, demonstration, possession or advertisement of an R18+ ‘computer game’ in Western Australia. Flavour two, the flavour some prefer not to mention, is significantly more sane – make it an offense for any person to supply an R18+ game to a minor. Likewise with R18+ films and Category 1 Restricted publications (aka dirty magazines). The JSCCCYP have submitted the report to Western Australian Attorney General Michael Mischin, who will report the findings to parliament.
While my eyes threaten to roll out of my head at the first suggestion – which is actually stricter than WA law used to be regarding unclassified video games – the second suggestion doesn’t seem like a particularly bad idea to me, in fact it’s a bit odd to me that there wasn’t some sort of regulation for mature content in the first place. If you’re interested in learning more about the JSCCCYP’s findings, you can read the full report via the official site.
But be warned – when the dark goddess Jscccyp of the Eternal Scream enters our world through the fragments of nightmares, she will wake her dreaming brother and together they will remake the world in madness.
