Swearing at people and insulting them is illegal

...but all the "Fuckyouall" stickers and t-shirts are okay, then. As well as the soft-core porn that Pro-7 advertises before 8 pm. And all the porno mags on display for all the schoolkids to see when walking through the passage at Isartor... and the uncesored "songs" on the radio during the day... I wait for the day some jackass brings charges against me for calling him one. Then I will sue the German media in general for "offending" me on a daily basis. Party at my house when I win.

Germany's relaxed attitude about censorship and alcohol is a model for other countries to follow.

Yes they are. You don't have the right not to be offended, you have the right not to be directly insulted and slandered. Big difference.

 

If your puritanical sensibilities are so harmed here, either pluck out thine eye like your book tells you to do or move elsewhere. Or try and explain why one shouldn't see a human body considering that it was supposedly made by the Creator in his own image.

 

This is Germany: tits good, guns bad.

 

woof.

@Austrami

 

if you were as clever as you seem to think you are maybe you would be able to recognize a wind up when you see one.

 

edit: bah...was hoping for a genuine fight ;)

Tsk tsk. Aren't you a hothead?

 

Just what makes you assume that I am a puritan or that I read any books that suggest I pluck out eyes? "My book" indeed. If you knew me, you'd know just how absurd that comment is.

 

It's all about the kids. I don't think it's right to show sex acts whether real or "acted" anywhere children can see them, and that includes magazine covers and on television before 8pm. Also goes for obscenities of all kinds. Are you single? You'll understand when/if you have your own kids. Just try explaining obscene graffiti to a 4 year old who has just learned to read, or what "motherfucker" means in that song on the radio.

 

I am not against nudity (but why is it that the naked people in the English Garden are ones who shouldn't be?). I also appreciate the power of a well-placed obscentity in an argument (not blanket swearing just because you can't think of anything else to say). I am not, however, a proponent of the "anything goes as long as nobody gets hurt" mentality.

 

Now I suppose you'll draw some cartoons :D

 

Edit: PS the wife is the nice one, I am the arschloch. 'course the husband always is.

What's so bad about sex that it has to hidden from children? It is, after all, where they came from.

Nothing. It's all about presentation, isn't it?

Do you really find what they show before 8:00 p.m. offensive? Even what they show on late night television is pretty tame IMO. I'd say the violence they show in cartoons aimed at children is a lot more offensive.

Oh noes!!1! Won't someone think of the children?!!

It would be that bit where you wrote, "Then I will sue the German media in general for "offending" me on a daily basis."

 

Which sex acts are being shown in public? None. Tits to be seen everywhere? Check. Tit torture? Bzzt.

 

Grafitti: red herring. Has nothing to do with your little whinge. Blame the little shitbags who do it... and then kill them. I'll help you with this.

 

Why are you playing a radio station which plays unedited rap for your child? You're suggesting that, because you're incapable of handling the responsibility of selecting what stations your child should and should not listen to, an adult should be denied the chance of hearing a wide range of music.

 

woof.

Well it's just when Galileo (the TV show which often has excellent science features that I watch with the young-uns) runs a preview for an upcoming "Made By Pro7" movie with teenagers humping each other... or the infamous advert for "Hinter Gittern" where the women flip off the camera (which, by the way... how come they can do that to me over the TV and I can't do it to an idiot driver?)

If you take issue with it why do you allow your kids to watch TV at all? My parents didn't see the value of it (and still don't) so we didn't have one when I was growing up. It gave me a lot more time to focus on developing my skills and talents. I have one now and hate the *damn* thing.

woof.

A) Somebody's gotta protect children since they can't protect themselves.

 

2) "Offending" was in quotes, therefore it was meant to be sarcastic.

 

III) Radio is everywhere, music is in the shops. I don't control that.

 

4) If anyone is incapable, it would appear to be you. Incapable of condúcting yourself in a restrained, mature manner. Bad doggie. No biscuit.

Get real. No TV at all? Right.

 

If you hate it, sell it. Or pluck it out of your house...

My boyfriend would probably leave me if I got rid of the TV but I've lived most of my life without one (with the exception of when I've lived with roomates). I did things like play musical instruments instead. You'd be surprised how much more productive you are and how much fuller your life is.

 

Unfathomable concept that there is life beyond television, I know. :D
