Calling Your Penis Freddy Krueger Because It Gives Children Nightmares

So where do we draw the line? Racists and sexists call for ‘freedom of speech’, but surely the line must be drawn somewhere?

Is it acceptable to post comments online calling for the drowning of asylum seekers? Is it acceptable to post comments online about wanting to rape kids? Is it acceptable to post comments online about wanting to exterminate all homosexuals? Is it acceptable to post comments online about a desire to kill/bomb all non-whites?

To the person who created THIS monstrosity of a page, HERE is your ‘freedom of speech’: your public comments re-published.

  1. That’s fucked up. Nothing else to say but the admin of this page needs a severe beating,we need a name to expose this sick person, I’ve got a pretty sick sense of humor but this is sick

  2. I’ve been a huge supporter of the Anti-Bogan for a while but this is obviously a joke. It doesn’t matter if this fucks sense of humour is darker than yours, it’s still obviously a joke.

    If he/she were really touching up their kids then it’d be OK to be mad about it. Just sayin’

      • They are all acceptable to post online. Whether or not you agree with them is up to you.

        Personally, I don’t agree with his/her thoughts, but I’d rather live in a country that allows someone to say that in a public forum than in a country that locks down all freedom of speech.

        Not that we have guaranteed “Freedom of Speech” in Ausfailia.

        • The fact that they are all acceptable to post online is subjective. The fact that Australia has legislation disallowing racial/religious hatred being expressed in the public forum also plays a role in this debate.

        • Don’t know about you Peer but as a non-prudish parent who never censored their kids’ online activity, I’d be concerned to see that sort of rubbish in a forum which is accessible to kids. Facebook allows 13 year olds to sign up, and I know that even younger kids use Facebook.

          Adolescents are in many cases literal-minded and easily influenced. A kid seeing that may well dismiss it, but some may also think that laughing at rape and atrocities against kids is appropriate. The pea-brains who produced it probably believe they are great wits and cutting-edge comedians, but to an adult it reads like a red flag indicating the creators need urgent professional help. Putting that frat boy rubbish on a forum where millions visit is analogous to opening a torture porn parlour on your High Street and inviting passing kids to come and take a look.

          Facebook has a double standard too about what is “acceptable”. A picture of a woman breast-feeding her baby, or a representation of cultural masterpieces such as a Rubens nude or Michelangelo’s David or Indian carvings of the Vedic period are deemed unacceptable and swiftly removed, but troll porn like that Freddy Kruger group and the sort of boofheaded hijacking of tribute and memorial sites we have seen is apparently “acceptable” unless a media brouhaha is created.

          And don’t get us started on the disgusting racism and bigotry on social network sites, especially Facebook, we wade through every single day.

    • A Joke?!? What makes it a joke?? What exactly is the punchline?? What does anyone get out of this stuff unless they actually get excited by the idea of hurting little children? It is not funny and it is not ok.

    • Really Peer? You think raping children is something that’s ok to put on the internet?
      I must be missing the gene that makes people find the rape, assault and murder of children as suitable topics for comedy because all I got from reading the posts above was the urge to vomit so maybe you could kindly point out the parts that were “obviously” a joke that I was meant to find amusing?

      By allowing this kind of crap to be posted, and defending their “right” to post it you are basically condoning it. They might have a right to post it but they also have a responsibility to consider whether or not they *should* post it. And your logic is flawed, the whole point of posting peoples comments here is not to censor them but to shame them, because anyone who finds this group even remotely amusing deserves to be publicly shamed at the very least and have their details passed on to police for investigation.

  3. Hey people,just wondering,why would it bother the racists and homophobes if you publicise internet posts they already publicised? Seems to me you might be unwittingly helping nutzis spread their vitriole to an ever growing number of disaffected,partially attentive ears. And also,hoping someone might enlighten me,,why do mainstream muslims get so emotional and threatening when non muslims repost exerpts from the koran word for word? Once again,one would be forgiven for thinking this would aid them in spreading their ideas,and yet The Islamic Council Of Australia demanding some sort of cobbled together criminal charges be levelled at non-muslims who do nothing more than read out loud via the media,,word perfect,,,seems a little LOL don’t you “fink”?

    • It bothers the bigots mightily to be named and shamed here because part of the intolerance disease is an over-inflated assumption of entitlement which disguises their own inadequacies.

      They think they have the right to harass, vilify and threaten minorities and those like us who seek to stand up for these minorities.

  4. A screen dump and a the URL can be sent on to New Line cinema who own the IP rights. I am sure they would be most pleased by this. Or not.

  5. Ugh, shit like this is why I’m glad I’m not on Facebook.

    This has fuck all to do with freedom of speech. If the person is serious, they’re discussing criminal acts. If it’s a joke – child abuse and rape aren’t funny. As someone who has been raped, I don’t feel that comments like those are something which should be shrugged off with a “oh, it’s just a joke and while I don’t agree, if we disallow this sort of thing we’ll be living in an Orwellian dictatorship.”

    No. Fuck that. If we’re going to speak out against racist hate mongering and label the people who have those views as slime, then the same should apply to people who think that violating the bodily autonomy of innocent people is amusing. Rape is not a joke and it shouldn’t ever be treated that way. If you actually think that – try imagining how somebody who has been raped or abused as a child would feel after reading that crap. It’s sick and dehumanising and it cheapens us all as supposedly intelligent, civilised beings.

  6. My ideas on liberties such as freedom of speech are a little vague but here goes. Based on my understanding of the social contract (Thomas Hobbes et al.), people forgo certain natural freedoms (e.g. the right to defame or kill others) in order to take advantage of collective benefits from being a member of society (physical security, voting rights).

    So collective rights have priority over individual rights. E.g. an individual has the right to freedom of speech but only to the extent it doesn’t violate the collective right not to be subjected to racial abuse. In a similar vein, comments about killing refugees should be removed because they reinforce unjustified negative stereotypes and potentially incite violence. Policing this is a challenge of course.

    As for the lame FB group mentioned, joke or not, it should have been removed and no further attention given to it. Some socially-awkward retard just wants the attention.

  7. That is probably the worst thing I have ever read on Facebook – why would you make that group up? If there was humour in it I could (just about) understand but that is seriously fucked up. Freedom of speech is a huge issue and I believe it should be protected…..but not for the anonymous – if this fuckhead had his/her real name on there, I’m sure they wouldn’t be posting that vile crap. If you want the right to say what you wish to….then fine. But take full responsibility for your words and views….not under a chickenshit alias.

  8. Posting excerpts word-for-word isn’t the problem, Jack, it’s the context they are written under and how they are manipulated to reflect that context. If I took your paragraph and put it in an article about depressed and alienated morons planning to blow up local Government offices, I could choose which excerpts would fit my story:
    “Me disaffected….Hoping someone might enlighten me…. Me so emotional and threatening….. Thinking spreading loud charges…. Council levelled…. Perfect LOL”

  9. Personally, I prefer the group “Calling your penis KFC because you can’t beat that taste”.

    Not that I’ve ever tasted it, you understand.
