That means junior and his beliefs and 'rights' are in opposition to five other family members.
Who should 'win'?
If so, why?
You provide a unique scenario but in reference to what the OP is talking about a better frame of reference would probably be:
Junior wants to read a book, by himself in his room, about a cat that swims in the ocean. Big Sister hates cat and is scared of water so she doesn't
want Junior to own this book let alone read it.
So Mom and Dad take away said book and donate it to the library. After all we don't want Junior infringing on Big Sisters rights to be subject to his
reading a book to himself that she doesn't like.
My point it the topic was about if you don't like a certain music / tv show / movie ... then simply don't watch it. If you're worried about it
being damaging to your children ... they make all kinds of wonderful rating systems for these now a days. They even make tv's that will block certain
The answer is to make sure your children know what is acceptable to your standards, to monitor them and to hold them to that standard with some
consequences if the disobey.
The answer is not to remove from the entire world all the material that you happen to find objectionable.
