Australian Government Wants To Ban Small Breasted Women

That title is only slightly sensational:
Breasts came under the spotlight a year ago, as Senators Barnaby Joyce and Guy Barnett commenced a campaign against publicly available porn. Rounding up magazines from corner shops and filling stations, Senator Joyce claimed that publications featuring small-breasted women were encouraging paedophilia.

The result of this campaign is now visible in the decisions being made by the Australian Classification Board, which is beginning to apply RC (refused classification) categories to such material, as opposed to the previous X-rating. According to Fiona Patten, Convenor of the Australian Sex Party: "We are starting to see depictions of women in their late 20s being banned because they have an A cup size."

"It may be an unintended consequence of the Senator’s actions but they are largely responsible for the sharp increase in breast size in Australian adult magazines of late."
Australia's rules about films and video games are especially um, rigid. They have a rating system similar to the United States: G, PG, M for mature, R (restricted to 18 and over) and X. RC means Refused Classification; and it's illegal to offer these items for sale (although in some parts of the country, it's legal to own RC material, unless it is, in itself illegal — like child porn).
