Chinese gov’t bans ‘abnormal sexual behaviors’ – including LGBT content – from Internet

China released a new regulation that bans the display of “abnormal sexual behaviors” – including homosexuality – in online video and audio content.

China released a new regulation that bans the display of “abnormal sexual behaviors” in online video and audio content, according to a report from Reuters.

The new rules published by the China Netcasting Services Association (CNSA) build upon guidelines first released in 2012, when China also censored “obscenity”, “violent and criminal processes”, and content that promotes “luxurious lifestyles”.

As per the new rules, the range of issues that will not be approved now also include violence, drug addiction, extramarital affairs, religious cults and – yes – homosexuality.

There will now be three “auditors” who will be tasked to check all movies, dramas, documentaries and animations posted online to make sure that they adhere to “core socialist values”.
