1 Individurals censoring things for their childern - Good. Government censoring things for their citizens - Bad. -- Submitted By: (BrewMaster) on January 27, 2012, 7:24 am - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
2 On one hand, they keep kids from seeing bad things (before the internet, there wasn't really a way parents could find out if a show was kid-friendly until after they already watched it). On the other hand, it enables irresponsible parents, whose stupidity in turn ruins shows for everyone else (banned episodes, etc.). The cons outweigh the pros. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on January 26, 2012, 12:53 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
3 I've never been a fan of censorship, at least not with any form of government being involved. I feel it's just another way for "them" to suppress, repress, oppress and so on. Not to mention there are so many double standards of what "they" think is right. I believe it's up to the parents (guardians) to decide what's best for their own households. -- Submitted By: (Jp) on January 15, 2012, 9:40 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
4 I propose an alternative to outright censorship: warnings and making it harder to get a hold of offensive products. It's not an outright ban, it'd just help to keep some of the more questionable things out of kids' reach. I personally am more likely to buy video games from a store that asks for ID when someone who may be (or obviously is) a minor wants to buy an "M" rated game. -- Submitted By: (Maskdt) on January 7, 2010, 11:11 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
5 Censorship seems like a good idea at first. Keeping TV shows, games etc from showing things that might be disgusting or offensive, keeping people and characters from saying things most would consider offensive and other things. The problem is just what one deems offensive. There in lies the problem. Often, you have one group of people applying *their* sensibilities to the other. How often do we try to protect children in particular from bad words, violence and especially nudity? I know the censors are trying to save the younger generations from bad influences. Their hearts are in the right place. However, they forget that kids have different sensibilities not just because they're kids but because they're part of a different generation. Things that bother the censors now might not have bothered them when they were kids or it might not bother modern kids. Personally, I think that there should be at least some basic standards so things don't get out of hand. However, it should be up to the parents to decide whether or not a game, show or movie is acceptable for their kids to watch. Whatever happened to parents watching these shows and movies and playing the games (okay, maybe not games as they're somewhat more recent) before letting the kids do the same, then making a decision whether or not they feel those things are acceptable for the kids to experience? Oh yes, don't even get me started on how open censors seem to be with violence but not nudity/sex. How is the act that ends life someone more acceptable for us to see then the act that creates it? -- Submitted By: (ExplodingConsole) on October 3, 2009, 10:42 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
