Well I was watching Blazing Saddles the other day and the Censorship Got way out of hand...I could understand editing out the racial slur used in that movie quite abit but the even edited the part out when they were eating beans and farting...I think this has gone too far. What do you guys think about censorship?

P.S Just dont say no because your a horney 12yr old that wants to se some naked chix...Actually think about it.

This is a meaningless question. If there weren't ANY censorship, people could sell porn to children and copulate in the streets.

You'll have to better define what you're calling "censorship" if you want an intelligent answer.

I think parents of Children should decide if the material is appropriate.

There has to be a line drawn. but is sounds like they went too far in that movie, I beleive that they should never censor movies, Ratings are enough.

Even Racial slurs, they were part of the movie, leave it.

OOOO OOOO!!!!  NAKED CHICKS!!!!!!!!

Anyway, I think cencorship is something that must be taken very carefully.  I don't think explicit sexuality should be allowed on TV, like porno, but most of everything else, especialy things that are for pure humor, like the fart scene  in Blazing Saddles, should be alowed on TV.

Just shoot yourself and save me the trouble.

I love that movie. I dont know about the cencorship on tv, but the PAs on cds are really stupid. I still buy them with P.As, but when i was younger, I couldn't.

i think language should be allowed to go uncensored.

I guess you sorta have to draw the line at nudity though.

the government should be allowed to censor whatever they want. Broadcasting is a privelidge, not a right. You have the right to say whatever you want. The FCC has the right to NOT renew your broadcasting license, therefor, you go out of business.

Not sure I fully agree with that...   The First Amendment doesn't only protect quiet 1-on-1 speech.

Broadcasting is a right.  Subject to reasonable restriction, like all speech, but a right nevertheless.

i dissagree with this.  my friend, well ex-friend, her parents dont even let her go to the movies with a boy unless its a boy from her church.  her parents make her clean the entire house just to go out for a few hours.  her parents are irresponisble and unreliable.  although i do believe censorship should be used to some extent, but not so much as stated in the first example of this topic (first post)
The desire for polyester is just to powerful.

I was always allowed to watch rated R movies ever since I can remember. My parents never censored anything which was awesome. I got to play whatever violent games I wanted and watched whatever.

I dont agree with censorship for the most part, however, as Sandman said about selling porn to kids and such, is a good point.

Censorship could be a little less strict that it currently is, but decency should always be a consideration.
