Censorship alive and well in America
Back in the good ole McCarthyism days, our government tried to make us afraid that there would be communists under every bed.
Now in 2007, our govenment has us afraid that we will see a naked body everyway we turn.
Blogcritics.org is a very well respected blog site. It is one of the most popular websites in the world. Yet they recently were banned by an advertiser Kontera Technologies because sins of sins, they wrote about "dating, relationships, love, and sex. click for article Now mind you there is no graphic language or nudity on the site, just their talking about relationships, etc.
With the FCC, and the extreme religious rights inroads into our government, they have the press and advertisers scared. Last month, the New York Times was afraid to run a Yale University theater ad. Now Kontera technologies is afraid of blogcritics. As the article says:
"What's become of our nation and of Christianity? What are we coming to when we show blood and guts sprayed all over the TV, even on the Family Channel and Cartoon Network, but it's wrong to talk about sex. God forbid someone shows a breast - we all remember the Janet Jackson incident. What should have been a funny blooper ended up being turned into a scandal.
When did sex become evil and wrong? When did war and violence become the norm?
...It's no wonder our society is so dysfunctional when it comes to sex and relationships and why our children are killing themselves in record numbers. When we value violence more than love, happiness, and joy - this is what we get. I'm definitely not talking about more censorship or taking away more freedoms. We've done enough of that already!
...My real concern is that this decision by Kontera represents a much bigger problem. Their views about sex are reflective of our society as a whole. Where are we going as a society when I can talk about war and violence all day long and show gruesome pictures of this violence on my website with no ramifications whatsoever?
...Our children grow up knowing more about combat strategies and murder than they do about their own bodies. This is the real problem. It's time to take the stigma away from sex and start talking about it openly and honestly for what it is - a completely normal and healthy part of our lives."
It is really sad how many Americans are afraid of nudity. When we have an Attorney general covering the bare breast on the statue of justice in Washington, when the religious right protests the above Dove soap ad because they celebrate older women with nude photos, and when you have ancient societies more comfortable with nudity then modern American society, when the FCC bans a Dove sopa TV ad that is allowed to runin Canada and Europe, it is no wonder we have the highest teenage pregnancy rate of all industrialized countries of the world. It is no wonder Europeans laugh at our prudishness. This needs to change if we are ever to develop into a mature, peaceful society.
