Hutterite,We're talking about a PG rating including sexual
jokes. Unless you want to argue that such jokes are acceptable for children,
then you have shouldn't be complaining. If you do feel as such, then
ratings should not matter to you either way, and then you shouldn't be
complaining. Either way, InspectorC put it right saying to take a big deep
breath. Seriously, you will live, your movies will not go bland and you'll
still have any other rating to choose or NOT to choose from. Your freedom is not
infringed."Nobody is trying to take away or limit your choices,
or to water down your options."As for that argument, it is
false. When countless others have witnessed for themselves the opposite then our
concerns are worth addressing. Ratings don't hurt you, but help us. There
are times that people need to grow up and move on in life. Those complaining
about parents wanting to address their concerns about protecting their children
must only have selfish reasons, because why should it matter to them? Again,
such others are not affecting you.Maybe instead of complaining,
become an optimist instead. It'll make you happier! ;)
@ Hutterite (5:50 pm): This article doesn't threaten you; so
just take a deep breath! 8^) All it's talking about is
providing resources to parents of children and interested persons to help them
decide if various media products are within their own values and standards,
OR.... as you yourself said.... for THEM to decide to just "turn off the TV
and stay away from the movies".Nobody is trying to take away or
limit your choices, or to water down your options.
I'm tired of nanny groups who want to be offended so they can carp about
it. Turn off the tv, and stay away from the movies if that's what it takes.
I don't want everything made so banal and watery that it's suitable
for a ten year old. Besides, that kid is more resilient and knows way more than
you want to acknowledge, anyway.
OK.com allows viewer input? Good. Just because MPAA says "PG"
doesn't mean a movie is suitable. The more reliable input, the better.
