Honi Soit Qui Mal Y Pense


There are black bars over our labia. Trust us, they’re not usually there.


As the law currently stands, we can’t show you what’s under those bars. The SRC is a small organisation without resources to take on the man, and the reality is that people will face gaol time if we show you our labia.


This is ridiculous.


Censorship laws in Australia state that the publishing of ‘indecent articles’ is illegal. Indecent is supposed to be something that will ‘offend’ a ‘reasonable person’. That in 2013, the vulva can still be considered something that will offend a reasonable person is absurd.


We hereby present to you the censored vaginas of 18 Sydney University students. We present them, tarnished, enraged, and enlarged. And we ask you, the reasonable person, are you seriously offended by a body part half the population has?


Honi Soit Qui Mal Y Pense.

Shame Upon (s)he who thinks evil of it.


Honi Soit is the weekly student newspaper of the University of Sydney. It has a proud reputation of being the most vibrant and prestigious student publication in Australia.
