Our stupid, pathetic, sex-phobic culture...

If you're wandering around the Web this week you'll probably see something this week about this poor man who is being bullied and mocked for... (possibly) masturbating, alone in a private space.

Some childish "hacker" (and I hate to see this term devalued like this when there are so many real hackers doing fascinating, constructive things all around the world) discovered that this guy's pizza shop had an internet-connected security camera in the kitchen and grabbed some video and happened to catch this guy doing a beautiful, sensible thing: taking a break to give himself some pleasure. They posted it to 4chan, home to much that is puerile, and ti's all over the Web and the poor guy is an instant celebrity in all the wrong ways. If it is him in the picture (he says no) I think it's sad that we live in a culture where he can't just say "Oops - I didn't realize about the camera. Yeah - I was having a quick wank - what's the big deal?"

Here's the picture - as a salute to our brother masturbator. Keep strokin' it, man!

In a better world we would all be given one of these sometime around the age of ten:
