As reported by SMH it took Classifications Board to declare that photographs by Bill Henson are not pornography and indeed they are “mild” and safe for many children.

I wonder what damage has this issue done to Bill Henson’s career as a photographer. How many of art galleries who owned his photographs will hang them back?

I do agree that children should stay children and sexualisation of their lives is undesired. There are too many issues with it to list or discuss here starting with simple clothing designs for children that really belong in adult only boutiques to teenage pregnancies. However, this does not mean, like in this case, that the society needs to pin the label of “sexualisation” on everything it finds uncomfortable.
