You just necroed a thread that's nine months old.

That means it had time to gestate.

Anyway, I heard they censored the publishing of Jojos Bizarre Adventure... on the grounds that Dio was reading a book that may or may not have been the Qur'an, in one panel, in part 3.

THIS IS JOJO WE'RE TALKING ABOUT. JOJO'S BIZARRE, FABULOUS, GORY ADVENTURE.

I swear, those Moral Guardians have selective blindness that deserves an entry in The Man Who Mistook His Wife For A Hat.
I stayed up all night, 'cause I wanted to see where the sun went—and then it dawned on me.

What is wrong with reading the Qu'ran, again?
"Beware of the wolves. They were raised by wolves."

He's a vampire, and one of the most despicable villains in fiction. They probably think touching the Qur'an should burn his hands or whatever.

Or, you know, maybe they were looking for an excuse because they couldn't even spell out what they actually didn't like about Jojo.

The blatant homoeroticism?

Shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, it's the Elephant in the Living Room in that series. It remains almost completely unacknowledged. And Eastern Arabs have a weird thing about No Homo: men demonstrate affection toward each other easily (hold hands, hug, kiss on the cheek), dance together, and hold very close friendships. The same is true for women. The only close contact with the opposite gender is your grandmother, mother and sisters (maybe your cousins), and wife, and vice versa.

So, yeah. I mean, we go to one-gender bathhouses together and have some guy vigorously rub most of our body clean under the steaming heat.

So, yeah, no homo.

The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
