OK people! It is time for yet another controversial post. This one is on censorship.
I feel that TV censorship (or any censorship, depending on the hour of day. I will get to that soon) is complete bullshit. I get why it is enforced but I don’t know if you are like me or not. If I want to see a naked woman or hear people say “fuck” I don’t want to have to go onto a pornographic website and possibly let a virus into my computer or buy something on Netflix or HBO or something. Only just recently, Comedy Central has allowed late-night shows to say “Shit”. South Park is a prime example of this. But having said that, they still censor the Daily Show and the Late Late Show and late-night satirical news shows. Europe, from what I have heard, is WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY more lenient with censoring things than the USA. Apparently, Europe allows full-frontal nudity (depending on the country) and profanities on any TV show. For God’s sake! In Europe, apparently the only restriction is that, except for nude beaches, you can’t walk around naked. Japan is balls-out (no pun intended) INSANE! Again I have never been to Japan, but from what I have heard, in Japan, anything goes. Look, I am not bashing the United States by any means, but can’t we let up just a *little* bit? I feel you should be able to show sex, full nudity, and say whatever we Goddamn well please on TV…with a limit. It cannot be during the day (again wait till the kids are in bed) and you’re good to go. I think censorship is a violation of Freedom of Speech and Freedom of Press. We have the right to say what we want in the US but can be fined for it or worse? Oh yeah…that makes perfect sense… Here is an example. I am going back to Japan for this. Apparently, Japan can–AND DOES!–show what Americans would consider pornography on daytime television…AND NOBODY FUCKING CARES! (Try censoring that, assholes!) Body hair is another thing that is frowned upon here in America. Smooth is “normal” for an adult woman here in America. Apparently, pubic hair is absolutely revolting and disgusting to a lot of men here in America. Americans are uncomfortable with things they see as “weird” or “abnormal”. So why should adult Americans be uncomfortable with nudity or find it disgusting? We are all humans. We all have penises and vaginas. And that’s not gross…THAT’S A FACT! So that is my rant on censorship. As always, feel free to comment and good bye.
