I have to admit that I was wrong. After viewing that last post I think that censorship should be used at times. Not for barely clad women but for unconcealed stupidity.

Interesting thread people.

But everyone is ignoring a few glaring facts....

1. Sex/sexuality is the root of all evil.

2. Anyone who has sex and actually feels pleasure is going to hell.

3. Studies have shown (LINK) that a single nipple viewed on a television will immediately cause the collapse of the national economy, cause famine, bubonic plague, and the implosion of 3.65 million people's skulls.

next time you want to view a nipple on live tv, think about that.

Now, is this sarcasm or stupidity?

Referring to 3 postings up on page 2:

Who knows, might be a taliban supporter. They and others believe women should be covered from head to toe. Maybe the FCC hired a few.

I say we shouldn't get too upset over seeing God's creations. Man's creation of murder, death, and destruction are what we need to see less of but we see it every day on the news.

Come on now,

If you could not detect the sarcasm in that post you had best see a sarcasm detection specialist.

You would be surprised at some of the religious rhetoric that comes through here. Honestly, you got me.

and yeah - i think it's safe to say that was sarcasm

On to the topic:

OK this is BS. Censorship is wrong! As has been said, if you don't like, don't watch it. If you don't want your kids watching it, don't LET them watch it (is it just me, or isn't that the parents role - not the FCC's???)


This country is arcane when it comes to sexuality - we were BORN naked!!!! That is our NATURAL STATE!!!! Now i'm not a nudist or anything like that, but why is everyone so bent up about the human body? Are you that sheltered that you don't know whats under that T shirt?

Personally - I'm a 20 something guy - and I LIKE the idea of a bunch of hot girls strutting their stuff, and god damnit - I'm not affraid to admit it! The fact is, my body is GEARED to do this - hormones MAKE me this way! It's friggin natural for me to view preatty girls as sex objects - thats how my body is wired right now! Girls are this way too! They dress up to look good because they (regardless if they will admit it or not) want to get laid too! And if they want a desirable guy, they have to be wanted themselves!

And you know what, even if it (the VS show) makes every other girl in the world insecure, I DON'T CARE! I want Tyra Banks in a push-up and Gizzel (SPL?) in a thong! My on again off again G/F is in the fashion industry - even has a line of bras coming out - she doesn't seem to mind, in fact she watched the last one with me! She, nor any other girl I have dated, has seemed to have a problem looking good in public or otherwise - everyone wants to.

And I have seen stuff on TV that repulses me - way too much gay crap on TV IMO - so I change the station. It's simple - there is a remote damnit, it's there for a reason!

Well, I'm 40 something and that's why I keep my clothes on. I do it for the young people. Seriously though, you're right, why are people so anal about the human body? EveryBODY has one.

You know, it's funny - in some ways the US is really behind the times. Go to a European beach and see what the girls have on over there - i'd say that theydon't have a bad self image.

Im not black, jew, or asian or any nationality either. Im not gay, married, nor do I have any kids. I dont get benefits either. And you think being a woman gives you the right to yell "rape" at someone you dont like? Thats definetly one of the most ignorant things I have ever heard. In fact, what does your whining about not getting any special treatment have to do with this post??

I dont get any special treatment. But Im not going to whine in a whole paragraph about it, because I can only look on the good side of things. B itching and moaning will get me nowhere. Yes, censorship will lead to the depletion of our rights. Its bad. Thats one thing we agree on. But I think you have a bit of a warped view on things.


have you ever try getting medicaid, food stamps, or any such things?

those things are true, if youre a minority, abused woman or with a mental disability, you will be put higher on a list or will be considered sooner but say if youre white or have a physical disability or are male its much different.

example, my medicade was cut by alot just because i can think and im not disabled enough even tho i have a terminal disease.

thats one of the few things i like about the military...
its volunteer, and i personally have not seen any issues arrise with denial of benefits based on racism, sexism, or religious preference.
nor is affirmative action an issue.

although i certainly think that the civilian population does not value their military protective force, and it shows in the difference of salaries between the military sector and the civillian sector. A large part of why the military is having a retention problem.

support your troops... demand they get a pay raise!

This is a little off topic, but it is still about free speach.

Starr Jones, a firm hater of stern, has flipped and is defending him. She made the statment," He has been on 10 years, people that tune in to him in the morning know what they are going to get."

The secret show is know diffrent, you turn it on , you know you are going to see almost naked people.


I dont understand why people, that dont like something, why the watch it, tune it in on the raido....

Again I say people just are not happy , unless unhappy about something, or complaining.

I think it's ridiculous to base it on other peoples actions.
