Default Why is sex more inappropriate for children than violence?

I was at work today, and a co-worker opens conversation.

Her: "Tuesday. Movies coming out in the store. I'm renting Hancock. You seen it, is it any good?"
Me: "It's alright. You know how Will Smith is."
Her: "Is there any nudity? My kids want to see it."
Me: "Nope, just violence and swearing."
Her: "Ah that's fine, they're used to that."

I was reminded of the Southpark episode ""Good Times with Weapons." I just don't fucking get how our society can be so fucked up, to let our children gorge on death and destruction, while we shy away from peace, love, and the beauty of nudity and sex.

I don't agree with either as they are portrayed. Sex is often depicted as selfish; lust supplanting love isn't something I can ever condone. Nor can I condone violence, where it is often used to take and steal happiness and life. In that respect the two, as portrayed by our culture, are the same.

Be it through hallowed grounds or lands of sorrow
The Forger's wake is bereft and fallow
Is the residuum worth the cost of destruction and maiming;
Or is the shaping a culling and excercise in taming?
The road's goal is the dark Origin of Being
But be wary through what thickets it winds.
-Excerpt from the Litany of Residuum;
As Translated by He Who Brings Order

Sexuality should be taught and understood with any child of any age. This is why, if your child plays with him or herself, you tell them that it is just fine if they touch themselves there, but only do it in private, not in public, and it's not okay for anyone else to touch them there until they are old enough.


I dunno, that's some crap I read in "What to expect in the first year".


My opinion? Sex and violence should not be censored from children, but they should also be explained to the child. But we also have to realize that a child sees violence a HELL of a lot more than they do sex. Think about it. What do they watch most? Cartoons. Please tell me of a cartoon that does not involve some type of violence. Hell, even the older ones show violence. But they don't show sex. Betty Boop is about as sexy as it gets. So, I don't really see why it wouldn't be taboo to let your children watch violence.

I don't think the dumbass parents who accept no responsibility whatsoever for how their children turned up should have the power to legislate control over what we watch to the government.

Not that this parent individually was not a fuckface, but the reason in general is because sexuality is an immensely private activity and violence is not. Also if you are talking about superhero movies (in the case of hancock specifically, I haven't seen it) the "violence" we're dealing with is often of a unserious, cartoon variety which is more innocent and which we are more willing to allow children to see than actual violence. This is often the case with sexuality as well, for example romantic kisses in children's films.

What's happening?
I keep my dreadlocks in a napkin ring
Rap and sing
Unlike the homogenous clones
I'm in to earth tones, birth stones, and erogenous zones
The more ticklish the more you have
Sitting on the curb of what used to be the burbs
And before that was Canarcie
I'm a disturbed and bitter herb
Like saltwater and parsley

I don't think violence or sexuality is bad to teach your children, so long as YOU are the instructor and not the television.

For example I am going to teach my son to hunt and after we KILL the deer we are going to GUT him and SKIN him and pull his intestines out, and then CHOP him up into cookable sized pieces.

Violent? Yes. Ok? Yes.
