When you separate the word naked from the show and turn it into something somehow dirty, that is YOUR doing, YOUR attitude, not the shows. The only
way your children will get something bad from watching this show, is the judgmental and reactionary attitude that some parents seem determined to
Hey, if you don't like television, then don't watch it, but to rant against a good show simply because you have personal issues with the title is
silly. There are far worse things in society to protect your children from, than the simple use of a word in a television show title. You are judging
a book by it's cover and that is just wrong.
Children can grow up healthy and well balanced if they are given the tools to do so. Crime, war, corruption, promiscuity, moral degradation, all of
these will be met in life as well as on television, and if children are given the proper tools and they will meet them and still grow up healthy.
Banning words wont help at all. Teaching objective reasoning will. Being judgmental and reactionary is the opposite of objective reasoning.
Sorry man. A "Rock Band" lifestyle is not a healthy lifestyle.
No matter what you say. That is just the end of the story. Maybe SOME adults can handle the rigors of it, but kids can't, and they should not be
expected to know how to move through the obstacles of it.
As a matter of fact, kids that were exposed to a celebrity lifestyle and had it end negatively, FAR exceed the number of positive stories.
Like it or not, that is the truth. And, no sane parent wants their kid to think that the Cheetah Girls, or Naked Brother Band is a "Normal" life.
And, no, I don't think most of the little kids that watch these shows can tell the difference, or are able to sort things out for themselves. And,
they shouldn't have to.
And, I am ranting more against the people behind the ideas, than I am about the show itself.
If we able to destroy thousands of families each year with Megan's Law, we should also take the responsibility of making sure kids are not depicted
sexually in ANY way through the media.
Here is another example: Just in the last hour, my girlfriend and I, while watching TV, watched 2 commercials for "ABC Family", which is,
laughably, ABC's programming geared toward, yup, families. The advertisements for both shows were totally focused on cheating, sex and violence.
The one, "Wildfire", did nothing but tell us how the one kid caught his girlfriend in bed with another guy. The other, Lincoln Heights, I think,
was all about an obsessed man, trying to sleep with the wife of another man, ending in a huge violent blowout. That, to me, is not "Family"
Oh, and I forgot to mention, that the narrator for the nice shows, were portrayed by young kids exclaiming, "Awesome show!", "I can't wait for
the next one", etc. Hehe. Honest. That's just nuts.
Are things getting clearer?
