What a sick society…

Parents banned from taking photos at annual sports day. Story in UK Daily Telegraph here.

As a parent of young children who has photographed them at many school events and as a stock photographer who has generated income from children’s sport, I find this attitude of ersatz puritanism an indictment of a sex-obsessed society living in hysterical fear of what might be lurking in the dark corners of our minds. What next? A prohibition on photography of pensioners because there are probably people out there who are stimulated by the sight of the elderly? A ban on pencils and pens at sports events in case people might be drawing or writing erotic imagery?
