Gay website blocked for featuring police officers
The owner of a gay website showcasing pictures of Thai police in their snug-fitting brown uniforms has reportedly accused police of blocking access to it.
The Nation newspaper says webmaster Vorapong Siriwan was seeking to remove his website, which also includes tales of sexual fantasies involving police, from a blacklist of 100 censored sites.
“They should have told me to remove the content they considered inappropriate instead of blocking the whole site,” he told the daily, adding that the photos were not pornographic and were taken with the officers’ consent. But deputy director of the Police Information Bureau Colonel Yanaphon Youngyuen denied police had blocked the site and said the force did not see it as a threat. —Ananova
