I can't recall what movie it was, but when I was younger I asked my mother to go with me to see something that had just opened in theaters. It was an R-rated film, but I wasn't expecting full-frontal nudity and borderline pornographic scenes. So... just sittin' the theater with my mom, watching the characters get it on for a few minutes. It's agonizing when you're caught in one of those scenes and they go on forever.

I also get uncomfortable watching anime that has noises remotely similar to "bedroom noises." Even if the scene isn't actually bad, they use those sounds a lot

The one moment in anime that legitimately made me uncomfortable... or maybe outright sick... was the ending to School Days. I can't say that Makoto didn't have it coming but it's just brutal what happens after--I can't say I'm a fan of gore.

I think the end of Berserk (the anime) sort of shocked me... and I was like 15 or 16 at the time of watching it. So that was really graphical lol.

Maybe that's why I'm kind of retarded nowadays.

PV commentary:

Speaking of which, I get uncomfortable watching South Park. It seems the creators have a hard on against authoritarianism, but now it feels like they're against the left wing as well, and being a liberal myself this just seems....awkward. Like watching a 30 min rant about why Obama is a bad president or something of a similar nature. I prefer well reasoned rants, thank you, not making fun of everyone you hate. Truth be told, I still enjoy South Park.

Yeah, haters don't like seeing and being the mirror image of what their belief systems and favorite causes actually are or resonate from. Boo hoo. I don't watch it much but South Park continues to be biting social commentary as I recall from their earlier shows. The 4-show cour that aired recently was a hoot. South Park poked fun at pompous elites that were not composed of the usual suspects: white, 50-somethings, or banker Republicans. Instead it was smug narcissistic foodies, within 20-40 age cohort range, upwardly mobile who despised law enforcement to the point of banishment until a certain inconvenient truth befell them: homeless people occupying their turf at night. It is interesting how some philosophies shift to the right as they get older or have to face consequences for their irrational beliefs.

Yea, South Park. Keep it up.






Of the recent episodes I watched (Which is like the last ten, and a great deal focused on the SJWs or the left.) , it didn't seem like anything could be interpreted other than "liberals are stupid", for no reason, which is weird considering the creators themselves are equal opportunity offenders because certain targets are overused by certain shows. Essentially, they're overusing one target way too many times and it just makes me uncomfortable, trying to decipher what message they're trying with the addition of the PC principal and all that.


I don't mind, and some of it does make sense, in the case of Naughty Ninjas, it feels like they're not explaining why the left is at fault.

There were many moments in the first three episodes of Mysterious Girlfriend X that made me uncomfortable...



Three episodes was more than I could take so I dropped it.

I watched part of This is the End with my bf and a friend very recently. I didn't make it through the movie because gore makes me more than just uncomfortable.



Other than that, some 'female-centric' films tend to make me angry at times even when I'm supposed to find it funny. Apparently what's humorous of a woman is when she's a selfish manipulative whore. Ends up just pissing me off--which makes for some awkward moments when watching with someone else.

Shock rape.

I have seen many shows in which rape has featured and in stuff like RIN: Daughters of Mnemosyne it didn't bother me at all because it was well within context and presented with the appropriate weight that such a thing should. Rape itself in a story doesn't bother me. What does bothers me is when it is thrown in purely for shock factor, to make you either think "omg I hate that guy" or "poor girl". It is lazy writing and up their with gorenography (gore for the sake of gore) as something that will immediately lower my opinion of a show.
What is even worse is when it is presented for titillation and/or in a fashion that does not condemn the act.

At least the killing of another can be justified, rape can never be and using it for a cheap shock just isn't on.

Rape scenes in general, if I know it's there I'd walk away... far away.

Virtually every post in this thread has spoken about being made uncomfortable as if it was a bad thing or some flaw in the entertainment. Am I the only one who thinks that when done right, being made uncomfortable can be very powerful and effective within entertainment?

Any sort of scene with a relationship makes me jealous and bitter about the fact that I'm going to die forever alone.

Basically most of what Family Guy has been doing. There is a lot of subject matters they have been handling poorly and that makes me feel very uncomfortable most of the time.


Basically my problem with Family Guy is Brian's flanderization of Brian to Liberal Douche, but I won't say he's a self insert, because Brain suffered a fair amount to how much of a Douche he is. I'll give Seth credit for that. But the idea of Brian makes me uncomfortable. Now he's so opinionated for a fictional character.

South Park makes fun of anyone who is a well talked about politician, right now its the left side but that will change when the right starts pushing in as they are trying to do now. More than likely Trump is next on their make fun of list considering his recent spotlight and probably some more Hilarey as well.

Have you had any moments that made you somewhat uncomfortable? This isn't just an awkward moment, so I'll start with an example. I was watching a kids' show where a girl was told by her parents in public to be the best at everything. It made me uncomfortable because it was essentially legal child abuse. Think of it this way. You're at a nice restaurant, eating your food, when suddenly you witness a father yelling at their crying kid. It's awkward for you, but between the child and father? It's just verbal violence. Essentially, instead of being a private awkward moment between two or more people, leaving everyone but the participant feel awkward. Take for example Watamote. Or how about a Simpson episode where Apu and his wife have 8 kids?

So what moments in entertainment made you uncomfortable?


Dark things in general.

Also when people are so political is hurts x.x

Or when people talk about respecting other people's beliefs because I already know they'll try to shit on my beliefs.

Or Yoga, that shit's weird.

Or people who say they're "Pro Women" ... I mean ... what the f*ck does that even mean?

Or shows that show a woman abusing a guy senselessly (Oh, I see, Pro Woman)

Chick flicks... Uhg....

Cock tease moments, like in Full metal Panic, JUST SHOW ME HER BOOBS!

Over protective mothers... more like Nazi Moms

there's probably more.

I would have to say it would be when I am watching something that becomes unexpectedly graphic and I am scrambling to turn it off before my kids walk in. I always check ratings and such, but it has happened

Stuff that makes me uncomfortable is gross things.

In She's All That, the mean kid eats a sandwich that has pubic hair in it. I can't not watch that scene or I will throw up.

A couple of the sex scenes in Game of Thrones have also made me a little uncomfortable.
