Oh my goodness gracious.... The picture in this article made me snicker uncontrollably. Being one of those people who DOESN'T think animation is meant to be just for kids, and has trouble relating to anyone ignorant, insensitive, and tasteless enough to think it is, I can't help but be baffled by the stories I hear about some sucker being warned by a clerk at blockbuster that "This movie totally isn't appropriate for kids!" ignoring the clerk, letting his/her children watch it, and then returning an hour later wanting to sue the store for renting cartoon porn, or just something really really violent and scary. In half of these situations, the parent quickly loses the case because the box HAD a warning ("ABSOLUTELY NOT FOR CHILDREN" or something along those lines) on it, and the other half actually ARE the store's fault since they put such things in the "family friendly" aisle simply because it's a cartoon, right next to the Don Bluth films. Heck, I've actually seen similar things happen in real life! You'd be surprised by what I find on a shelf where it clearly doesn't belong when looking for movies to watch. Even on Netflix, I'm frequently jolted and unsettled by what appears in the new releases section. Honestly, though, if a person really doesn't notice that big, bold "NC-17" on the cover, then I need to question their ability to read. Just take a look at this picture. tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php… Look at that smarmy grin. That "cartoon" he has in his hand is La Blue Girl, a rather famous Hentai featuring a girl whose pubic hairs are sharp enough to make decent throwing knives and whose clitoris is so big it can double as an auxiliary penis.... AND HE GOT IT FOR &%#$@&G CHRISTMAS. Chances are (that's putting it VERY lightly), his parents have no idea what they've just handed to him, but he clearly does! Can you believe just how dumb some people are???????? WHO, in their right mind, would ever think the barely-clad girls on that cover are part of a children's program??? The one girl it most prominently focuses on, is only wearing a flimsy little skirt and a long, wormy, penis like appendage wrapped around her several times like a rope!!! ARE THESE FOLKS FRAKKING BLIND????? These are the same people who complain about children being corrupted by what they see on TV and videogames, take their kindergarteners to see PG-13 or R rated live action movies, completely ignoring the warnings on those humongous posters on all the walls in the theater lobby like it's okay, and then buy "Hulk VS. Wolverine" at wal mart thinking it's intended for kids, only to flip out when Deadpool's arm is sliced off like a salami and he tries to glue it back on, or something like that. >siiiiiggggggghhhhhhh< Long story short, I sometimes can't help wondering just what goes through the minds of those a little bit older than me. I'm not making any arrogant generalizations, though. A lot of adults who I know in person are sufficiently protective of their kids. If you were able to understand what I've just written, then I respect you, and I figure most of you who read this very well will understand.... but the few of you who probably don't... open your grease coated eyes, please.

On another note, Facebook peeves me to no end. I especially hate it when I want to write something down and want the people around me to read it, and I can't because it's 2000 or so letters long, and apparently the average American attention span can only take 420 at a time. Not even 500, just barely 400. How am I supposed to get anything out? Just write down a little bit at a time and separate them into ten incomplete chunks, like people do in the comments section on youtube?
  • Mood: Zest
  • Listening to: ...&quot;Hades' Castle&quot; from Death Smiles...

I know, right!

and I even get it at school
whenever I come with one of my TF T-shirts I get laughed at because it's children's show
(or because it's a guy's show, you chose)

people are stupid, I actually use to get my porn through hentais because I knew nobody knew what it really was XD
though I was in a very open-minded family and I had actually taken a rather "soft" hentai (real love story, very nice , I actually still follow the series now for the story) so I hadn't got any trauma, I'm sure kids get kinda surprised when they actually see the contents of these mangas and animes

haha 420 ..i mean come on the damn pot joke and how much u can type. I really hate how everyone thinks that every thought is a literary gem. But just make a journal and link it on your face book so people can look at it here.

As far as the hentai crap goes.. omfg these are the same freaking people who bitch about kids being corrupted and crap. Seriously parents now a days are so damn lazy that they cant even turn over a cover and check the content on it or its rating? Man sometimes i think that common sense has become so rare it should be reclassified as a super power.

Geez that's why you should always look on the back of the dvd to see the content and rating!

Well that's one way to introduce them to the birds and the bees...

Facebook is really just for games, looking for people you've been looking for a while, and just small status reports.

this is pathetic. I sometimes watch yaoi hentai (XD) and the contents in those kinda things are definately not for children, and the fact that a six year old can get their hands on porn that easily just cus it LOOKS like a cartoon for kids..it really needs to be checked. Yeah i like yaoi and all that, but i'm disgusted children can get a hold of it that easily just cus people think "It's a cartoon, no big deal."


those people need to be bitch slapped.

If ignorance was a disease then about 70% of our population would be dead.
