China Clamp Down on Slash Fiction

China recently launched a crackdown on online pornographic content: “Cleaning the Web 2014″. According to the campaign, all online texts, pictures, videos, and ads with pornographic content will be deleted in order to “create a healthy cyberspace”. 

According to Offbeat China, since the launch of “Cleaning the Web 2014″, many Chinese fiction-sharing websites have removed their slash collections, including jjwxc.net, the most popular self-publishing website in China. Websites dedicated to slash, such as dmxsw.com, have been shut down. At least 20 writers have reportedly been arrested for producing slash fiction. 

Our work building bridges across cultures, languages and perspectives is more urgent than ever before.
