Congratulations. You've stumbled upon the mental junk bin of a 29 year old ginger who - when she is not wearing her professional language nerd hat - dabbles in amateur photography, prose writing, bad poetry, stale jokes, obscure references, intense fangirling and long awkward silences.
One of my high school friends works in a women’s health clinic in the Bay Area and also organizes and teaches seminars that promote safe sex practices in whatever flavor you choose. As such, she posts the occasional gem of a news article on Facebook from time to time - including this one in which three adult channels are cited for their pornographic content being “not Canadian enough.”
The headline confused me slightly, then made me giggle. How does one make porn more Canadian? I asked myself, then had to brace myself against the inevitable rogue thought processes involving beaver dams and Mounties. (And before one accuses me of trafficking in stereotypes, I grew up in spitting distance of the 49th parallel and many of the same stereotypes could be applied to the lands immediately south of the border. But I digress.)
But then after reading further I realized that the channels were being cited for not showing enough content that originated in Canada. I was somewhat relieved for the clarification, albeit slightly disappointed. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m just putting this maple syrup back in the pantry where it belongs.
