Do you think alligators are a problem?

Alawia67

We all hear about alligators, and how they sometimes attack people. A lot of people died because of them, and the last one that I heard about was in Orlando, FL. Last month, Lane Graves, who is 2yrs old, have been killed by an alligator when he was with his family in Walt Disney. So, for me as a resident of Florida state, which has over than 1.25 million alligators, I really would like this problem to be solved, and not just in Florida; in each state that has alligators or other kinds of alligat...

Should non-sexual nudity in the media be given a G or PG rating?

Dario_Western

Not all nudity is related to sex. Therefore, should nudity of a non-sexual nature such as documentaries about the nudist lifestyle, or the nude in arts or in health documentaries be given a G or PG rating? Children are not harmed by seeing other human beings nude. This has been proved correct in several non-Anglicised cultures such as in Europe, Africa, South America and some island cultures and societies. Should America therefore get up to date with these cultures and relax the censorshi...
