Cyber bullying is defined as use of electronic communication to bully a person. Today so many people can be seen falling in this maters. This is because when they meet a unknown person on the social networking sites they come in contact with us and can send some inappropriate material.
I believe that the media should be limited with how much violence
they show on television. Violence is a
learned behavior, and showing criminals committing violence on TV only leads to
more violence in the future. Media violence
is worse than entertainment violence because viewers know that media violence
The more time you watch,play,or see violent media, the more it effects your behavior. Did you know that the Newtown shooter was a major fan of Call Of Duty? Violent media is everywhere. "90% of movies, 68% of video games, and 60% of TV shows show some depictions of violence.", stated CNN.
Hence, violent media is dangerous!
It has been shown that violence in the media can cause violence in real life. Copy cat criminals emulate what they have seen on television or in films. The media should not glorify violence and make it look cool. A lot of the current school shootings have been connected to violent video games.
For example If someone were to watch a sports movie they might be inspired to play sports. If someone were to watch a musical they might be inspired to sing. The same goes with violence. People often have a biased opinion about violence in the media because they enjoy watching and playing violent video games. If it were true that it had an effect on them then might not be able to play. Children learn from what's around them including the media.
Violent video games cause violence in real life because it influences people to reinact what they do in a game. Now days video games have extremely good graphics which make it look like the real world, thus making them think it would be cool in the real world. Now days teen play "M" rated games when they are not mature enough. That is why they have "T" rated game
What about the other 16 million players of call of duty?
What about the 150 Million that watch the news?
Most video games are made in and for Japan yet, Japan still has one of the lowest homicide rates in the world.
What about the NRA promoting guns right near locations that were sites of school shootings, and then start off the event by saying "Over my cold, dead body"?
The media is not to blame, it's the guns.
On the other hand, it may be argued that some people are wise and are able to tell the difference between what's right and wrong and irregular and regular. Therefore, not only adults watch TV, but children too who are not wise to know the difference. If they are going to follow a career as a doctor, or a surgeon or a soldier, or anything else that involves fighting, or healing people. Typical normal life is gory and violent video games will prepare children for it. However, it will still affect the kid's mind and make them aggressive not only to his enemies but also to his allies. In fact to everyone around him including, his mom, dad, and his family.
I think that at the most it could be a factor but in all seriousness, where can children go to get away from it. Even in alternatives like books and school work or heck even playing outside.
Think about classic literature, Shakespeare for instance. Generally, his writing is gorgeous and fluid, pure works of genius, and yet some of it was quite gory and depressing. Edgar Allan Poe. Though his work is not technically ‘classic literature’ it is in fact, infamous and yet he wrote some incredibly dark things. And what about Historical Fiction or even, dare I say, History in general? It is common knowledge that history is full of massacres, hate, and violence. But these subjects are taught in schools no less. The point is even the alternatives to media are full of violence, as is life.
Even if you ensure that your child is not under some kind of influence, you can't be sure that others are. I might get so much hate for this but what about sports, contact sports seem to be sweeping the nation and competition has shown that it can definitely register some rivalry and by association hate and negative feelings and maybe even some violence? Now my point is not that we should come down hard on everything, but that we can never be sure what is going to be good for our kids or what is going to harm them. We have to have faith that we are raising and have raised our children the right way and let them do the rest. Because as we all know the more you hold on to something the more you lose it.
There is a cartoon of a child watching tv and the mother says "Don't play violent video games." To this, the child replies, "It's the news."
If there is blood and gore in a video game, it will prepare you for real life. If you cut yourself there is blood, if you cut someone else there is blood. We can't have soldiers who are afraid of blood, because no wars would ever be won.
Some people say that violence in media desensitizes children. I agree, but this is good if they are going to follow a career as a doctor, or a surgeon or a soldier, or anything else that involves fighting, or healing people.
Typical normal life is gory and violent video games will prepare children for it.
Saying media violence CAUSES is like saying I have smoked for many years and I don't have lung cancer... That means smoking has no impact on lung cancer. We all know it does. I do believe that media violence is a FACTOR but not the cause. There are an abundance of people who see media violence and never act out in violence. Why would those people be okay if media was the cause? It'a as much of a cause of violence as being male or having a low self esteem is. Media doesn't, and will never, cause a violent society. See the real problem in society and stop blaming all societal problems on media.
