  • south park or family guy

    I'll be taking the side of the American comedy "Family Guy" because it is a series that's somewhat relate-able to the common American family but with the additions to inappropriate humor that many people find hilarious despite what age. South Park, as one of Comedy Centrals most beloved animated series can more or less relate to the adolescent group that find that type of humor more interesting but to adults, it's seen as inappropriate due to the language which is MUCH stronger than the Family Guy series.

    First of all, what is the 'American' family? There is no singular 'American family' anymore. Rather, I believe it is men, who feel threatened and emasculated, who refuse to share half of the duties at home, that are the real cause of any 'problems' in the 'American family' that may come with a rise in female independence.
