Finnish postal service to issue ‘Tom of Finland’ gay male erotica stamps

http://www.lgbtqnation.com/2014/04/f...rotica-stamps/

HELSINKI, Finland — The Finnish Postal Service, Itella, is preparing to release new sets of stamps in September 2014, including “male drawings by Tom of Finland” – a deceased Finnish artist notable for his homoerotic fetish art on late twentieth century gay culture, reports Finnbay.com.
Tom of Finland or Touko Laaksonen (May 8, 1920 – November 7, 1991) is one of the most popular Finnish artists in Finland, who focused on drawing stylized homoerotic fetish art. He produced over 3,500 illustrations, mostly featuring men with exaggerated primary and secondary sex traits with tight or partially removed clothing.

Finland’s Postal Museum will also debut an exhibition on Laaksonen titled “Sealed with a Secret: Correspondence of Tom of Finland” to coincide with the stamps’ release. The show runs from Sept. 6 through March 29 at the Museum Centre Vapriikki, and will feature letters and exchanges from the artist throughout the course of his career.

Some members of our parliament were not too happy of this.

Have YOU forgotten children?! They should not be exposed to such material!!!
Call for vote to cancel this stamp! Why not. That motion loses about 2 to 198

Whole stamp looks like this.

Exactly. Children should only be exposed to dolls that have been genitally mutilated (including the chopping off of their nipples) and the storks that deliver them.



That way they can grow up to have body issues and will express their frustration by supporting violence, mindless consumerism, and overeating. It works very well in America.

The real reason to oppose the stamps is that his artwork isn't all that sexy.

Exactly. To a prepubescent child, it's nothing special. The same thing holds for sexual song lyrics that kid's don't get unless someone explains it.

What adults want is protection from embarrassment for themselves — for their own sexual appetite and hangups. They use children's welfare as the cover story.

A naked butt is something every person who has ever lived has had but somehow it's incompatible with children! Truly fascinating.

if you know any 8-12 yr old kids, send them some mail (like a birthday card) with an ass+face picture on the envelope. let me know how it goes.
