...the Tokyo assembly passed the additions to the youth ordinance bill. Oh noes, kiddies won't be able to buy their manga porn any more ;)

The nerdrage on ANN has already started. Anyone would think that Americans live in a country where they can have whatever they want, oh wait, they can't and someone already paid the price for it :)

Worth a quick read but he's one of the 'freedumb of speech' nuts. In a nutshell there are no restrictions on what can be published (so how the heck can this be against freedom of speech/expression) but much more will now have to be classed as 'adult' and only be sold to 18+. People need to remember that freedom of speech and expression does not come with a guarantee of an unlimited soapbox and that other people have an equal right to not listen. And resticting what you can say/do is very different to restricting where you can say/do things.
