Here’s How One Prominent Chinese Website Chose To Censor Boobs
We just gave you our take on Topless New York, a Kickstarter Project that (desperately) needs your help. Now we’d like to un-ironically inform you that while America doesn’t seem to give a left tit about boobs in public — there’s risk of overexposure, kind of like having candy corn every week instead of just Halloween — Mister Topless New York (only $9,550 short of his goal of raising $10,000) just might find an unlikely ally in the netizens of China. NetEase, one of biggest online portals, posted a slideshow yesterday about the Kickstarter project, introducing it as an effort by young women to “defend their right to go topless.” They failed to provide a link, but there were pictures — 16 of them, to be precise.
