|Do you believe there is excessive sex and violence in the media?
If anything there isn't enough.
Not really. Again, it's all in what you choose to consume. I do think there's more stupidity, more playing to the lowest common denominator than there should be. Even as a mom, demonstrating stupidity, judgementalness, mean-spiritedness in media is, I think, more damaging than sex and violence. Counteracting messages about sex and violence so far seems to me a lot easier than dealing with nastiness or meanness.
Yes, but only because the media puts it there.
You can't complain about films, video games and television shows containing too much sex and violence when anyone can turn on the news and see the same. The media enjoys hyping things up and they have more power than I think they realise. If they were to begin using the news to celebrate the goodness in the world, perhaps the world would become a better place.
I'm not saying that stories about war or violence are not to be shown on the news, of course they are, but they do dominate.
Absolutely - it is more the graphic and gratuitous sex and violence that I dislike. The movie Psycho by Alfred Hitchcock is a classic horror/suspense movie but in the shower scene there is never actually any contact of the knife with the victim. The illusion of violence is left for us to piece together in our minds. I would like to see more media producers leave some things to our imagination.
Yes, which will only be perpetuated if our consumerist attitudes buy the stuff they advertise with such methods.
No, because if you have a good life and you're trying to copy what you see on TV, you deserve what's coming to you. Lol.
