Comment Re:Is there a difference? (Score 1) 526

Wrong audience. You honestly expect the average slashdot reader to relate to your thoughts on this? :)

I'm with you. I have kids. I don't like it when my little girl watches women being objectified and exploited because I worry that it's shaping her self-image and her ideas about her role in society.

One thing you can do, however, is to openly have a reaction to content you find objectionable. Then your little girl will know that you don't consider the portrayed reality to be acceptable, and she will not pattern herself after it. (One hopes.)

I think there is a difference between your kids being exposed to mature material if the parent offers guidance and context and the kids just soaking it in and thinking it's all perfectly acceptable.

Try not to pay too much attention to the juveniles who are basically having a "when I'm a parent I'm never EVER gonna say no!!" moment.
