This is stupid, why aren't people allowed to say gently caress, poo poo, rear end, and jizz etc. on tv? It's not for the children I can tell you that much, kids swear all the time & I should know - I used to be one. Like, if you're an adult and you're offended by hearing a naughty word on tv (minus racial slurs obviously), who are you kidding? You've absolutely used it yourself in the past, so what the gently caress. Any time a news anchor or someone in the background says gently caress on accident everyones reaction is to gasp like someone just pissed in an open casket. Get a grip!

I heard a racial slur on FX that I didn't think you could say anywhere on TV. Something about black people and long projectiles

There are quite a few cable networks that are loosening up the restrictions on swearing. FX for sure. USA too. There are probably more too.

If you watch "The Dambusters", the squadron leader named his dog "n-word". So there's that.

Also "Star Wars" ripped off the death star attack from that movie. No bs. You tube that shite.

quote:

In 1973, a father complained to the FCC that his son had heard the George Carlin routine "Filthy Words" broadcast one afternoon over WBAI, a Pacifica Foundation FM radio station in New York City. Pacifica received censure from the FCC, in the form of a letter of reprimand, for allegedly violating FCC regulations which prohibited broadcasting indecent material.

After listening to the entire broadcast with his son, he filed a complaint that ensured the First Amendment is restricted when you are broadcasting.

Nothing in Jurassic World is natural, we have always filled gaps in the genome with the DNA of other animals. And if the genetic code was pure, many of them would look quite different. But you didn't ask for reality, you asked for more teeth.


There's nothing wrong with broadcast TV conforming to community standards. It's not just a religious thing.

Swearing in general should be limited.

It loses its catharsis and effect if its ubiquitous.

That said the definition of Indecent should probably change now that I can see models posting their poop on instagram, kids today know more about loving than any other generation on earth before

these kids are seeing triple penetration online before learning algebra, and cussing like sailors on twitch, is someone saying “poo poo” on the TV (which is now just another less popular screen) really make a difference to society

Well, yeah. If it was up to me broadcast TV wouldn't show any graphic violence.
