Ceci n'est pas une personne.

What constitutes child pornography?

In interesting and ambiguous subject that seems to bring in many gender issues.

Here is a recent case of censorship of an album cover that the courts would not define as child pornography, but eBay does:

So, why is Bland Faith's self titled album blocked, but Nirvana's Nevermind is not? Would The Scorpions Virgin killers be blocked?

What about art books by Robert Mapplethorpe or Nan Goldin?

Should eBay stop the listing of the Blind Faith album? Should they block Nirvana's Nevermind?

Why or why not?

Discuss!
