On mass media, theres this strange phenomenon.
You can watch Family Guy where a baby tortures a dog.
You can watch South Park where a child gets another child to eat his parents.
You can watch the serial killer Dexter kill people and carve their bodies up.
It is absolutely acceptable to show violence so severe it would make many of us sick to see in real life, but censor's feel that the F word that we all hear daily, or a womans nipple (which most of society would have seen by age 16) is to much for the public audience.
Is this logical, is there a reason for this, or is it left over puritanism values we cant quite shake off, the last remnants of 50's sensibilities?
