The Thai Government Is Trying to Ban Underboob
Women who take underboob selfies have been threatened with up to five years in jail.
The Thai government is taking a stand against a social media trend they’ve deemed damaging to national security: Underboob selfies.
Reuters is reporting that the military government is cracking down on the social media trend of posting anonymous underboob selfies, citing Thailand’s 2007 Computer Crimes Act. These salacious photos are considered in violation of the law banning “any obscene computer data which is accessible to the public,” that could cause “damage to the country’s security or causes public panic.”
Offenders face the possibility of five years in prison, highlighting the government’s harsh, oft-criticized censorship practices and harmful policing of women’s bodies. It’s about time they checked out Free the Nipple.
