The first post on pornography and the soon to be passed Pornography Bill generated a bit of debate. Therefore, a follow up is warranted. This is particularly so in order to clarify and explain a few matters.
The definition of pornography is broad and the term used in Indonesian is materi sexualitas. However, this should for all intents and purposes be read as sexual materials and would include all the things listed in the first post. Rima has a good description of several of the Articles.
Therry being the fine artist that she is should still be worried. This is even the case where Article 14 of the bill purports to be an exemption clause for artists and those practicing traditional customs and rituals. However, it should be noted that the elucidation to this Article seems to make an exception for statues but not for art that raises the sexual urges of the viewers. My guess is that there would be many members of the community who might be a little turned on by some of Therry's art. If this were the case then it would seem that these images might just fall within the gambit of pornography.
Article 21 seems to provide open slather for the community and so inclined community groups to be somewhat vigilante in their methods of shutting down things they consider to be pornographic. This, though, is modified to some degree by Article 22 which seems to limit these community preventive measures to the reporting of the alleged breach, commencing a class action, implementing a socialization program, or providing guidance to the community with respect to the dangers and the impacts of pornography.
The socialization and guidance parts still leave plenty to the imagination.
Life goes on.
