It's not just San Francisco that likes banning weird things: Oddee rounds up 11 notable examples from around the world:
- Porn with small boobs: No A-cup porn films are allowed in Australia. Why? Because, lobbying groups argued, men who prefer such films are secretly into child porn.
- The two-dimensional version of Avatar: China didn't like the message of the film, so it only allowed it to be shown in 3D—since the country has few 3D theaters.
- Emo-style clothing: Russia declared such clothing "a threat to national stability," blaming it for high teen suicide rates, and banned it from the halls of public schools and government buildings.
- Reincarnation without permission: That's right, in China you need the state's permission before you can reincarnate. The government apparently uses the ban in an effort to control Tibetan Buddhists.
- Tons of baby names: In Denmark, don't get any ideas about coming up with a really original name for your kid. New parents have to choose names from a government-approved list of 7,000 names, or else get permission for an exception.
