My Blog Is Too Sexually Explicit! Finally!

Google did the threatened crack down today. They accused my blog of being sexually explicit. In order for me to come back into compliance I have to remove this post and any other sexually explicit posts. The problem with the instructions is I really don't understand how the "example" is sexually explicit so it makes it very difficult for me to pick out any others. I cancelled my Google Adsense account and went with Chitika. The ads aren't as good because I don't get enough visitors, but perhaps their definition of sexually explicit is more concrete or at least less confusing.

If you're too lazy to read, the "Example Page" is basically ranting about the Texas Government wasting time writing bestiality laws instead of doing something a little more productive with their time. It's very sexually explicit. Maybe I should start blogging about "The Wiggles" to keep things rated G.

Here's the email from my friends at Google (feel free to try and shed some light):
