  • Yes, but to an extent.

    The seven curse words are not necessary on television, because they're just words one uses to describe their anger, excitement, or happiness in some cases. They should be banned from television for the sake of our children's vocabulary. However, violence is a typical reaction to conflict, and should be acknowledged by our youth to understand the potential consequences of a disagreement. Also, sexual exploitation, male or female, should be made known by our children and marketed the same way bullying and drugs are.

  • To an extent, yes.

    The "Magnificent Seven" curse words are overall nonsense. They're just words to use when you can't find terms to describe an emotion like anger, excitement or surprise. So it shouldn't be allowed on television for the sake of our vocabulary. However, violence is a typical reaction to conflict. Children need to understand the consequences of a disagreement through cartoons and shows that interest them. Also, sexual exploitation, male or female, should not be blatantly shown, but should be explained through child based commercials the way bullying and drugs are being televised in commercials, just to imply how wrong it is.

  • Um Totally Yea!

    Have you ever wanted a movie and start wondering if it’s appropriate for your child to watch? Well I have, there was a time where I was watching a movie called “The Lies We Tell, The Secrets We Keep.” Now by just reading the title of the movie. We should highly allow censorship towards kids because whatever they’re watching can be unhealthy, they can mimic a line off of TV to his/her friend, they can grow up thinking it’s ok to act a certain way in real life as on to what they watched.
    What I require the most censorship to be held at is the library and on movies. It puts a strong foothold on the kids and also it can let them know that it is not safe to watch, children can look at a movie scene and would start to want more of it and next thing you know, they’re addicted to as they get older. We shouldn’t want our kids drawn to such negativity between the pages of a book or the visuals that they look at on TV.
    The second reason why I think there should be censorship is because they will copy everything they hear to another person. For example, a child can say something negative to his/her parent that they heard off of a movie and they may not really mean what they say, but it can be highly disrespectful towards the parents and the child. The more they say it, the more they think its “cool” to say and next thing you know they’re saying it all the time. Its unhealthy for the other kids they tell it to.
    Lastly, the other reason is because the children can start to think its ok to act out what they see on TV. For example, a 14 year old boy is shooting dice and smoking marijuana. The little boy or little girl will start to fantasize that and the character will start to be a “role model” to that child. Or there can be a 24 year old young man cursing and the child would start to curse too. The whole point of this topic is they mimic on what they say and it leaves a bad reputation or impression on kids.

  • Don't shelter children.

    No, tv should not be censored. Most of the 'censored' things on television are normal, everyday things that you might one day have to deal with: racism, sexual situations, death, violence, cursing, etc. Censoring those things might be worse than leaving them on the air, because if you keep censoring them, not only is it against the First Amendment (right to free speech) but it's also not going to make these issues any easier to deal with. Seeing racism on television won't make children racist, because most children know that racism is not okay. Besides, most children are smart enough to know that if they see it done on television, that doesn't mean they should do it.

  • Obviously, yes TVs should

    Obviously, yes TVs should. Parents can't control what their children watch all the time. Kids watch 28 hours of TV every week. Moreover, the TV shows a lot of sexual content, violence, or even bad manners etc. Kids are innocent and easily influenced, and will emulate the bad behaviors TV would have shown. This is why TV should always practice censorship.

  • We have a Constitutional right.

    The first amendment states that we have a right to freedom of press and to speech. Though television wasn't invented in the eighteenth century, the idea of sharing information freely is still the same. Granted, some restrictions still apply, like swearing on shows meant to be watched by toddlers is not appropriate, but that is what ratings are for. If someone is going to watch a show labelled R, then they can bet there will be swearing and it is their choice to watch it.

  • No censorship good

    Kids should beosed to thing that happen every day gun violence,sex,drugs and swearing is something we all do you can tell your kid the bad of those things kids need to learn about racism all these things may happen in ther life time.As the kid gets older thay will learn

  • Freedom is a human right - censorship undermines that right.

    Once you start telling other people what they can or cannot hear, see, smell you are on the road to exercising force to stop people from hearing, seeing, smelling. It is then only a matter of time before someone gets killed and lose of life is a loss of freedom.

  • How does profanity and nudity hurt people?

    Trick question; it dosen't. Your kid isn't going to be scarred for life because he sees a pair of tits or hears someone throw around the word 'fuck'. There is no logical reason to censor anything.

    Word word word word word word word word word word word word word word

  • Open the children's mind to know the reality of the world

    Parents should watch the uncensored television programmes together with their children. It would helps the parents to explain to their children the reality of this wild world which is contrary to their own perspective of view. The parents can control their children very well as they may explain that the bad side of the movie should not be implied in their own life. By their parents' explanation, it would be easy for the children to understand it better because they believe that their parents' words are the gold of wisdom.

  • Enhancing smart societies should enhance bold mind set

    In today's time its better that we make our future generation more bold and open and thus its the prima facia requirement of us to present everything open to them . AND when it comes to telivisons parts its the medium which has great impact on the mob frequently and effectively. Thus its necessary to set every thing open to them,i agrees that restrictions are necessary and it should be their but it should be on that part that does not involve any teaching.When we can give reproduction chapter in 8th class to student why can't we show any any movie or serial or any thing which is uncensored according to law but can act as an medium for sex education thus i an against this that television should not be more censored.
    And when its come to religions part this should also be come on television and should be discussed openly in the front of eyes of all so that the real truth can come out.

  • It will happen anyway

    Whether children see it on television or in real life, bad things will happen anyway. Sheltering children from the real world does not do them any good. Just by myself going to college now in my 40s, I can see how college-age kids now are not ready for what the real world has to offer. This is real-life, after all and not a fantasy world as censorship would make it out to be.

    It is the parent's job to watch what their own kids watch. Yes, I know they can't watch their kids 24 hours a day, but don't expect other people to do your job for you. Like I have said, anybody can have a child, but it takes a real parent to raise one.

  • N n n

    It's stupid to censor us from reality. The reality is: There WILL BE rape. There WILL BE murder and arson and misunderstandings and conspiracies. GET. OVER. IT. We will always have that stuff. So why shade some kid from the reality of the world, and before you ask, yes I am referring to kid's show censorring.
