  • Yes, but should not be as extreme as it is now

    I believe censorship is necessary, to an extent. You can't have 3 year olds watching pornography and gore. But, it shouldn't have as much power as it does now. Let young children see same sex couples on TV, if they can see opposite sex couples. The more positive exposure they have as a young child, the less likely they'll grow up to be homophobic. Let the word fuck be on TV, everyone over 12 hear it plenty of times already. Let children's media be deep and serious. Don't underestimate how much a child's mind can comprehend, when I was 8 I was reading books about divorce and neglect, and I understood it just fine. Let children's media be scary, or serious, or realistic.

  • Yes yes yes

  • Yes there is a need for censorship

    There is a need for some form of censorship. That is not to say that we should use censorship everywhere but there are instances where we need to have the right to censor something. So we need censorship but we should not over use censorship in places it is not needed.

  • In certain environments, yes

    Sometimes people need to be protected from things. For example, nobody of sound mind thinks pornography should be something a young child has put in front of them. So, in certain outlets, it's not permitted to exist. That sort of thing makes sense.

    Censorship only becomes a problem when authorities are banning the communication of ideas for no purpose other than they don't like them, if there's any merit whatsoever to the subject matter it should be allowed in environments for adults.

  • We have the right to subject our senses to any experience or refuse them

    Imagine if you couldn't watch that movie or play that favorite video game (or at least the way it was originally meant to be) because someone said you cannot or should not. That decision should be at our discretion, not someone else's. Obviously, there are exceptions to that rule, but they tend to be far and few in between. I get that sometimes, when we are denied something, it's ultimately for our own benefit ultimately, but our curiosity will eventually get the better of us causing us to gain access to the forbidden content anyway because as human beings we want what we cannot have. This can be very problematic in the long run, especially if the anti-censorship rebels are not very well disciplined (which they pretty much never are) and get their way. However, if you allowed access in its entirety with nothing removed or revised to make it more "family-friendly", the desire for the uncensored version would go down dramatically because it would be at their fingertips and eventually they will have forgotten all about it and will likely move on to something else. I realize that this pertains to more than just censorship but also access rights and more importantly freedom to make our own decisions unhindered by a third party.

  • No it shouldn't exist.

    It causes a potential learning block and violation. Say, someone is trying to teach their kid not to say specific bad words (Fuck, shit, etc) and want to use television as an example. Someone says a bad word, they tell their kid not to say it. So when it's censored, the parent won't know which words to teach the kid not say since it's bleep out, thus not being able to give information to the kid or kids the parent is trying to teach.

  • This is Reality

    If we keep on banning book, TV shows, and etc. we run away from reality the real world where we have to face our problems and face the cruel world that's out there. Yes we are only human and it can be a it much for us, but all of this controversy come from us humans not being able to accept what's right before our eyes.

  • Censorship Shouldn't Exist

    It shouldn't exist because people are going to be exposed to that no matter what. You hear words like "shit" "Fag" "Nigger" and other vulgar language words. So it just prevents them from hearing it more often than usual. Either way they are going to be exposed to the inappropriate words, music, and pictures. If you go outside or to an event such as sports, you are guaranteed to hear it. -J.H.

  • It's just words

    When i have to stay up past midnight to hear my favorite shows bleep free, something is wrong. Like Tosh.0, it's not a kid show in the first place, why should swearing be censored? The nudity i can slightly understand, but still. We all know what they're saying so let us hear the all mighty FUCK.

  • Censorship shouldn't exist

    There is no need for censorship because there is supposed to be freedom of information, meaning that anyone should be able to learn what they want. In our day and age we should be able to find out anything with all the technology we have. So to block that from someone is truly unfair.

  • For a truly free society, no

    Censorship exists because one party does not like the things that are being presented or said by another party. This is the very opposite of what it takes for a truly free society to exist. Although some things can be very hurtful or obscene, they should not be censored as nobody is being forced to view them.
