My kids are 8 and 7 years old. They like to watch a variety of movies including horror movies. As I was looking through our DVD collection, I realized that we have plenty of movies that our kids would probably enjoy but we can't/won't let them watch them because of the sex scenes in the movies. There have been a few times that we attempted to watch a movie with the kids in the room but have had to quickly turn it off because of a sex scene. It really gets irritating. I mean, come on people, if a movie has a good plot, a sex scene is not going to make or break a movie! How about more sex-less movies? Don't get me wrong, I'm not a prude or anything but come the fuck on. The shit gets old. The story could be just the same without any humping or boobie kissing. My kids love a good horror flick; they don't get nightmares from them and they know that it is all fake but they don't need to see S-E-X! I have 3 kids, it's not like I get turned on watching sex scenes in movies either or that I watch a movie just for that. Most movies would be just fine without it.. maybe a little kissing or even making out would be alright but a lot of movies get very graphic without being pornographic.
My next complaint is about all the cuss words in video games. Our kids like playing Gears of War but every 2 seconds the character in the game is saying, “fucking asshole!” or some other swear word. Ah yes, I do cuss like a sailor when I'm around my friends and on this blog but I watch my mouth in front of my kids or other people's kids and I yell at my husband if he lets one slip in front of them but they don't need to hear the shit while playing a fucking game! It's not needed.. unless you are some kind of uber gaming nerd that is impressed with curse words? Mm'kay. Oh, and yeah, call me a bad mom if you must because I let my kids play these games but their gaming time is limited and well, they like to kill aliens!
Why is the world so impressed with sex and curse words? Why do big companies think that these things make a movie or game more entertaining or interesting? A good plot and good acting are all that are needed to make an interesting movie worth watching, and an action packed video game with good graphics is what makes a good video game. I'm tired of having to fucking worry about what is going to be said or shown. Grown ups are idiots if they enjoy shit based on that. Yeah, I fucking said it. Fucking idiots. (My kids don't read this blog and yours shouldn't either, so don't bitch).
