sex is how we all entered the world but violence doesnt have to be the reason we exit it.

being the by product of sex is the one thing we all have in common.

There was an old joke about the difference between a PG-13 movie and an R movie: In an R movie a woman has her breast caressed, in a PG-13 movie she has it cut off.

That is so fuckheaded I am having trouble thinking it's real.

I guess their flight schools are going to have a few more fatalities, huh?

It could be worse:

Greece bans video games

Ha ha! I was working on a High School textbook, choosing the fine art. I had an anti-war painting from around WWI. A skeleton drinking a goblet of blood proclaiming "Here's to you, civilization!" The head editor said I couldn't use it. I said "Oh, is it too intense?" "No, it's just that some people may think that the blood is actually wine and we can't have images of alcohol in the book."

I happened to be watching the edited-for-tv version of _Starship_Troopers_ the other day, and while they left in many of the scenes of people getting ripped in half by giant bugs, they cut out all the shots of Dina Meyer's tits. Not that her tits were an integral part of the story, but they're certainly less disturbing to see than somebody impaled on a CGI insect.

I remember when they broadcast _Schindler's_List_ on NBC, some congressman complained about the fact that the movie showed nude concentration camp inmates. First off, NOBODY was getting wood from watching that scene. At least I hope not. It was not sexual nudity; it was a realistic portrayal of how people were dehumanized. Moreover, it was a movie about fricking GENOCIDE. How is the fact that NAKED people were being mass-murdered somehow more upsetting?

Don't get me wrong; I'm in favor of sex AND violence in the media...

It's everywhere in this country, Marc, and it makes me sick.

Did you know that in this country, during the 50's and 60's, an average of 2 people died per episode of western or cop show, yet married couples were shown sleeping in seperate twin beds?

WTF?

Why couldn't this country have been founded by a bunch of hedonistic french, instead of the Puritans and their warped values?

In the place where you work- references to death OK, but sex not OK?

So, we decorated the cubes where I work. For this pep rally.

Images of DEATH were everywhere.

One image of not sex- only possibly inferred sex- was removed post haste.

Is it OK at your office to have death everywhere (OK, maybe not rotten.com death, but death) but never sex? Not even miniskirt sex? Halter top, smoldering look, hotdogs and doughnuts sex?

What does this say? Sexual harassment is verboten! But deathual harassment is perfectly fine.

It is not OK to talk about, websurf or display the memes related to an act that creates new life and makes you go oooh baby!, but it is perfectlyfuckingfine to talk about, display, or websurf the end of life.

Because lemmings are upset at the idea that someone may be interested in mating, but not upset at the idea that that same person may be interestind in killing.

Is this because overtures to sex are more common than chatting someone up for murder?

It is. So I say to you all, stem the tide! Turn the tables!

Don't tell that hot little number, or that muscled hunk of man, that you think genital contact would be fun. NO!

Tell them instead (lean down, whisper it in their ear, hot, humid words):

"I plan to kill you after work, and dump your body on the interstate."
