    Censoring

    I watched a movie On TV I had not seen in years today at around 2pm.
    Kindergarten cop.

    The TV network (ITV) thought it was too dangerous to allow us to hear "my dad is a gynaecologist and looks at vaginas all day long" and also "boys have a penis girls have vagina" yet they thought it was perfectly fine to allow at 2pm to show a guy get shot in the chest with a gun.

    I do not understand that at all.




    I am not suggesting no censoring should be imposed but more that they censored the wrong parts.

    Yeah, it's a bit ridiculous to say the least.

    This is exactly same pattern those cunts at the MPAA (Motion Picture Association of America) follow. Each movie that comes out, is rated by sex and words like "fuck" that imply sex. However, when it comes to violence, they're more lenient, as if violence was invented before sex. Those are natural things that have survived with humans since the beginning of mankind, they kinda go hand in hand. What the fuck is so fucking taboo about sex that it needs to get censored or R-rated?

    Even Big Bang Theory is censored. I have the Versions shown in USA and then watch them on our TV a couple weeks later and they have a few lines removed, they are shown at 6pm though, what time is it shown in USA?

    Its pretty obvious when it happens because the camera cuts to another angle and the audiance is in mid laughter.

    People these days are far too easily offended and it's as simple as that. That's why I prefer, if I can, to buy media in their country of origin.

    People should be desensitized by now, I am. Just a few weeks ago, my friend, who lives in Canada, and is originally from the Philippines told me how news over there gets covered so badly. I asked him why and he says that they show the crime scene, they show the body parts, they don't censor it or blur it. I was thinking, "now this is how you should report the news!!!" no sugar-coating Tell it like it is. I don't care if kids watch, and mostly they won't, people need to know how acts of violence can occur at any given time or show human nature.

    Really?? Lol I know latin channels like Univision show dead bodies on the air. I don't know about nudity I don't watch that news or much news for that matter I should ask my grandmother since all she watches are spanish speaking tv shows. I guess they don't have the same guidelines that the FCC enforce in the states

    I think censoring is the biggest crock of shit ever conceived. People should be able to air what they want. You don't like it or don't want your kids to see it? Change the fucking channel or block it. Both of which are easily possible with todays tech.

    That's the main beef I have with a lot of religious fundamentalist groups in this country. They try to ban shit for everyone because they don't like it. America doesn't work like that jerk off. You don't like a book? Don't fucking buy it.


    I don't really need a water cooler/remote control as of right now.

    I remember that Channel 4 and E4 used to censor or even cut out certain parts from Friends that were considered too 'rude' for daytime TV, like the episode where they have an erotic cake. Channel 4 even completely BANNED the episode where Joey and Chandler get free porn on cable. It's only recently that Friends has been completely restored, when Comedy Central took ownership of the rights.

    Loyalty to petrified opinion never yet broke a chain or freed a human soul.
