I'm fine with both and I'd like to have both, when desired, in games, anime or movies for that matter. I am certainly against the censure of these in any medium. "BUT THINK OF THE CHILDREN!" - No. You are a parent, it's your responsibility to think of your children and what is appropriate for them.

I do have to say tho I do always find it somewhat funny that many western (but especially american) people tend to be completely okay with guts and brains flying around and spalttering on walls, but when there is a sideboob for 300ms on the screen, they are all "Oh my god! Burn it, burn it!".Talk about being extremely insecure and afraid of sexuality...



I agree about the censorship. But when almost everything aside from sports or some musical artists has things parents would like to shield their child from it can be difficult. All you can teach them good morals and pray for the best because most mainstream things these days won't.


There is nothing wrong with nudity IMO and there is nothing wrong with being sexy IMO. America doesn't draw a line between the 2 though.


I just honestly have only hatred for the "Think of the children" mentality. Oh, there can't be nudity in games because you have children? Oh really. And that is an argument? Am I supposed to say anything else than "Is it somehow my fault you have children?" or "Maybe you shouldn't have children then." And of course, we could even go into the discussion about how good or bad it really is to shield your kids from the outside world there.

Essentially, my point is that someone somewhere having kids is not an argument for why I shouldn't be able to do X. If anything, it'S an argum,ent about bad or lazy parents. Yet it's still used for everything.

My personal preference is that I enjoy both. I find that on different days depending on my mood, just like anyone else; that somethings I yean to see someone get their face rip-off and other days a playing harmless sexually filled comedy is on the menu.
My inclination for gore and dark theme anime/art I believe is from the natural adrenaline rush at the moment of horror when the unspeakable traumatic act happens and also the build-up factor/suspense to the actual act. For example, when the psychopath has his/her victim restrained and they start to layout their tools of horror for the traumatic event. I luv the emotional trip and the tiny psychological scars it leaves on the brain. The gore and dark theme anime are fantasy escapes for me, that I reserve for few times a month, with the majority of anime that is adventure and other themes.
To conclude, I enjoy both but if I had to choose, my heart belongs to the gore.

Your mother sounds like she is awesome! I was pretty much the same growing up actually with my own mother. We always spent every Friday watching a bunch of horror related movies and shows when they were on TV. Things ranging from the more silly or family friendly supernatural type series to the more mature and blood soaked ones. She also never wanted me to see nudity till I was older. I remember being about 13 before I finally saw a woman's boobs on TV.

I also was always allowed to read whatever books interested me. I actually remember being in middle school staying up all night on a school night to read a book. Mom had a bunch of these older mystery novels, and I had some classics and stuff like 20,000 leagues under the sea. I remember starting them around 9pm when I should have been in bed, and having them finished by about 4am at the latest. And these were books which had 200-300ish pages. For some reason though I eventually fell out of reading as I got older, though I am getting back into it with Manga and Light Novels for different Anime series I am into.

Mom raised me to love everyone. Well, my whole family did. We were not overly religious but whenever it came up on TV or anything my family could never understand why religions were being used for hate as they took the christian teachings of "Love everyone" literally. And it has kinda worn off on me too. They would always say "It makes no sense to hate the Gays, or the blacks, or any other religion as God loves everyone equally and forgives, so should you." and although I have dropped the god part of their teachings..., the rest stuck of being loving towards everyone and being open minded about other peoples lifestyles and cultures.

You know what I find funny. Nobody is requesting we depict people taking shits in our media. I mean just explosive diarrhea. It's always just violence and sex.

All of it, as long as it isn't gratuitous.

With the exception of anime, I find gore hard to stomach and actively avoid series like American Horror Story (despite suspecting I'd love it), because of the content. It makes picking a movie to watch with friends hard too, since I like to IMDB the film first to see if I can cope with it.

Actually that is already allowed in media. I can think of quite a number of series which use such things for comedy and such. It is already an existing thing that no one really questions all to much and just has it labeled as "Gross out humor". I think farts also fit into this category.

Quick Edit: Things such as Jackass tend to do gross out humor the most. Not sure if they did explosive diarrhea but... yeah.

CR barely has any shows in their horror genre. They don't even have a tag for it.

I'm cool with both, but if they do introduce genres like that, they should post warnings with them or such to deter viewers who might not want to see that.
Posted 6/18/16
I don't even watch these genres to begin with

I don't care.

Blood and gore to an extent, not like some of the shit I have seen. Like Akame Ga kill is acceptable, and they do have a little bit of sadistic kills thrown in the bunch, but it's not over the top, if it's done right it works, stuff like Parasyte is pretty decent, again it's weird and gory, but it works

Sexual content, sometimes it makes an anime or show better, but in all honesty it's just annoying for some shows or anime, especially if it's done with bad taste, but I don't care, shoe a guys bulge, show a woman's cleavage or camel toe, who cares, naked bodies, skimpy outfits, who cares! It's for people's entertainment, not protection of Fucking children.

Censorship is a Fucking joke. Go take your Fucking kids outside and don't throw a tablet in their face exposing them to signals and WiFi .

It's like the world expects people who are 10 and 12 to watch this shit, and it's true, a Fucking 5 year old can watch porn, blood and gore, you won't believe the shit I hear about what some of these parents let their kids watch.

All a joke, the thought of censorship is a joke.

I'm not a particular fan of either, though at least with gore I have a higher threshold before rolling my eyes at the thought of it being fan-service oriented. I've yet to encounter a story that needed either of these in high detail, most stories work just fine with it being kept restrained without taking any focus away from the main story (especially when it comes to sexual content). If I want to see sex, I'll turn to porn but I don't want that bleeding over to more general stories. As for why sexual content would be more off-putting for me anyway is simply because its got more of an invasion of privacy feel to it.
