I remember the Smack My Bitch Up video because the computer guy who built our computer went out of his way to show me it and even suggested that I be allowed as much porn as I'd like. Creepy eh?

Maybe it's not just songs. And it's not anyway that's my point there seems to be a general not giving a fuck at the tidal wave of sexual content targeted at kids. Bratz dolls are a perfect example they're like Barbie's turned up to 11.

I'm not a saint or prude or anything I'm just saying shouldn't we at least protect young kids from being bombarded with this shit.

If I was the boss of a toy company and someone suggested we make whore-dolls for little girls to buy I'd break the guys arm and fucking fire him on the spot. But nope nobody cares it's just being normalized and accepted because no one wants to do any fucking parenting.

I could imagine a young girl listening to Billie whatsherface and not even taking it that sexually to be fair.  And what the fuck is it with the Bratz dolls man, I had to google that shit, they're just dolls, why they any worse than Cindy and Barbie?

It's just tedious who cares. Thinking about it would be thinking about it too much.

You see everything through HER eyes while she goes out and paints the town and does everything god has forbidden... then at the end you find out that it was a girl the whole time and not a guy, which most people probably expected.

Oh yeah, that was it.  I think part of the problem was at that point The Prodigy were WAAAAAAY mainstream so you get the sort of scrutiny a pop band gets.  Sort of like the stuff that Liam and Noel got pilloried for, lots of other bands have said way worse but they weren't of this fuckin' mega bajillion selling voice of a generation ilk so no one cares.  I think The Prodigy sort of knew what they were doing with that video too...and fair play to em, they seemed to be trying to position themselves as...not your average pop group.  Quite a well made vid too I though.

I got no problem with thinking, in fact I demand it of myself, its just there are things a lot more worthy one could be thinking about than a silly pop video and little girls dollys :lol:

My apologies. I wrote "tedious" instead of "tenuous". I have corrected my post. I am sleep-deprived after partying.

I said that because of what @SoulMonster said.

The sad reality is with all the bad parenting of my niece I have to witness this is the least of my concerns. I want to take control of the situation to protect her but can't so I'm reduced to bitching online.

It was kind of a pro-feminism video, right? You see this person boozing, snorting, going to strip clubs and having sex with women and being violent, only to realize it was a girl all along, and you think... sure, why not, it's not like women can't behave that way.

You are sorta describing that Paris Hilton episode on South Park and I agree, just not with the video. I don't see a lot wrong with it. Sure, I don't hang out with ten year olds anymore since my restraining order, so I can't say how impressionable they are, but I doubt that kids who read the lyrics even understand what they are about. I'm not sure I understand them.

Even if I'm wrong and it's nothing to worry about I don't see the harm in having some standards for say kids toys and TV shows etc. 

There is a ton of background shit to my anger and outrage which is way worse that I have to tolerate and bury. Here's a very, very small example her father was going to show her 'Sin City'. I squashed that idea, as far as I know.

Its a masterstroke in that way, cuz your sensitive feminist types will end up being like 'its a negative portrayal of women!', the normal conservatives will be like 'its got drugs and violence in it!', there's something to offend everyone, I think its glorious :lol:

With my niece, not that its my job, i sort of let her watch and listen to anything when or if she's around me, as long as it ain't got shaggin' in it :lol:  If ever I watch a film and shes around she has to turn around or cover her eyes if there's some shagging in it, thats the rule.  Not that I watch any of that kind of shit around her but I have watched Clockwork Orange with her and The Exorcist and Texas Chainsaw and...yeah, some pretty fuckin' violent stuff.  But like, from a young age I remember telling her, and making her repeat, that its all a load of bollocks, pop music, films, its just flannel and only the reallly really really really divy retarded (and i used those words :lol:) kids look at something on TV or hear it in a song and try to do it.  You wouldn't go jump off a building after watching Superman, would you?  No uncle, I wouldn't.  Its all just a big silly laugh made to distract you for a little short period of time.  And for a laugh, in an exaggerated way, I used to, before any such messy film was gonna be watched, make her repeat 'i will not grow up to be a psycho' :lol:  Just treat em like they got a brain man, thats all it is, make em laugh and see the funny side of shit.  And y'know she's come up pretty smart and well adjusted, cuz you explain shit to em, like Clockwork Orange, I told her that all the violent and horrible shit is supposed to establish Alex as a horrible person, its a plot device, to make the story work, what the story is REALLY about is crime and punishment and how you can't stop people from being bad by disabling them, its about controlling governments and why its not a good idea.  And it made sense to her.  Just talk to em man, thats all it is, and if you're a cool uncle they'll listen. 

Things aren't scary if you deconstruct them.  Leatherface is just a big wally in an apron that runs around mumbling like a retard and not giving chase very well.

Yeah I understand that I am a cool uncle. I just resent non-entity parents making it my responsibility and immense burden to pick up the pieces and reduce their aftermath.

Her dad goes on massive racist, xenophobic, sexist etc insane rants. The situation is complex and ongoing and out of my control. It's very taxing.

Guns N' Roses wouldn't do that, man. I mean they're such good guys. They wouldn't even cuss or know anyone who ever would.

What makes things more difficult for me in bad situations is I want to be in control. I just want to handle things and never get shit from anyone. However unrealistic/not an option that is. I'm not good at backing down so the fact that I constantly do just out of sheer forced will and not some kind of maturity or peace is probably giving me cancer lol.

There's been situations where like I'm having to explain to a little girl why her dad isn't there at Christmas(the reason is drugs) in that cool uncle sort of way and comfort her and then later I come on here and there's some stupid cunts claiming I'm a bad guy, I'm a sexist. Lol. It's my fault for being tense enough that trivial bullshit can irritate me. It is what it is. I rant on here sometimes just to vent. I know I'm not saving the world.

I'm very grateful to all the sweet people on here and in real life who heap praise on me for whatever reason. I don't feel I deserve it I feel like a fuckup and a failure but I still appreciate it.

Not trying to get up on a cross by the way. I'm not the one dealing with the brunt of the situation.

I find it problematic to provide new laws and regulations based on assumptions. It would also be a difficult thing to control through regulations, and finding a consistent line in the grey zones would be very hard.

Don't get me wrong, I don't like the direction either, and I think there might be something to it. I would just like to see some empirical evidence for it, and for there to be a realistic way of fixing it before it moves up on my list of things to really care about. I am quite pragmatic. 

Secondly, and I don't think you are guilty of this, buddy, is that I feel many who are passionate about this are more influenced by moral outrage. Not that that changes anything really, just that it makes it harder to consider the case and find solutions in a rational manner, harder.

I'm not necessarily arguing for laws and censorship regulations just common sense and good parenting. Maybe studies of some kind to somehow make sure it isn't fucking their minds up.

Then I saw a tv news show telling about all those so called preachers who make millions of dollars and have their own private planes, so they can talk privately to God and Jesus!

What a crock of shit! Stupid people keep giving these bullshitters money and they keep using it for their own personal life and tell you shit about talking to God.

One jerk had the nerve to say that if Jesus were alive today he wouldn't be traveling on a donkey, he would have his own plane. OMG!

I guess he skipped the parts in the Bible where Jesus never wanted worldly goods and hated if the markets would sell things outside any churches.

I know the Catholic has always wanted money if you went to church every Sunday, but some of those so called evangilists just take advantage and some stupid people think paying their way will get them to heaven. God news for them, it won't! lol

Sometimes I wish all religions would be outlawed so people would stop throwing money at stupid people who preach the word of God, but are full of shit!

They call it 'prosperity gospel', apparently God wants you to have Ferraris and Porsches and private jets, its his blessing upon you :lol:  You know half those guys have been investigated for fraud right?  Despite their tax exemptions.
