Censors decide adult Bajans mature enough to see Lesbian Love scene.
Ahhhh… but if the scene involved two men… what then?
The old folks at the Film Censorship Board are so predictable.

BFP’s original article…
We don’t know if the ballet horror film Black Swan was banned for violence, sex or a combination of the two. Ho hum. It will be out on satellite or DVD before you know it.
Sure, we have to have standards over what is shown in public, but when adults pay their money and walk into the Olympus Theatre to see a film that they know might offend some, that’s hardly the place for normal government intervention or regulation. It is true that no freedom is absolute and there must be reasonable exceptions and limits (snuff films, child porn etc.), but unless there is something I’m not seeing here, Black Swan doesn’t look like a place for the Film Censorship Board to make a stand.
When I think of what unsupervised children can accidentally see on the Internet just by typing a few words into Google, the Film Censorship Board looks more and more like a dinosaur enjoying itself on the morning that the big meteor hit.
