Why censor the stores when it is the parents responsibility to supervise their child?
    I have no problem with them being ALLOWED to have those kinds of porn on open racks. I have a problem with them actually DOING it and as a parent I would end up not taking my kids shopping into any gas stations or grocery stores that openly display them. I imagine my stance would be the same stance of numerous other consumers. I can imagine the public backlash against stores that did that would cause most shops to NOT put such things on the shelfs. But yes, if they WANT to do it I definitely think they should be able to within their own establishment.

    Just like I think that if yahoo would want to have a popup add advertising Adult Friend Finder everytime you went to their site that they should be able to, but I imagine it'd cause yahoo to be blocked on numerous computers, have numerous software suites that block things block their site, and likely have a large amount of parents to start complaining to yahoo and its advertisers to the point that it'd likely be more trouble than its worth for them.

    Exactly. It's called accepting a little personal responsibility, and not attempting to pass that responsibility to someone else.

    And I've never seen bare titties in the magazine rack at a gas station. Porn mags generally have an outside wrapper that only allows one to see the face of the girl and the name of the magazine. All the naughty bits are covered.

    And do you think if they didn't have to do that do you think that:

    1) The Gas Station would put them out on the rack with the bare titties shown?
    2) If the Gas Station won't put them out on the rack with the bare titties shown, that the companies wouldn't invest a tiny fraction of their money into making packaging that coves the naughty bits?

    Option 2. Truckers like porn apparently and gas stations like money, but not as much as they hate losing customers who don't want their children exposed to that.

    I don't know about that. In Montana there is a chain of truck stops and the one I worked at during my teenage years in my hometown absolutely refused to carry porn magazines, but it wasn't for the protection of children. It was because the female employees felt uncomfortable with it.

    It's actually kinda funny because one night a truck driver guy came in looking for porno mags and I told him we didn't have any. The store was full of customers and this guy got pissy and yelled, "Well, how the hell am I supposed to get to sleep!?" So then he goes over to the magazine rack and comes back with a Car and Driver magazine and in a completely annoyed voice said, "I guess this will have to do!" To each their own I guess.

    I know this may sound pretty corny and old-fashioned, but when I am alone, I don't think about porn. I think about my wife.

    If you believe in the Supernatural then you can become a millionaire!

    Questioning or criticizing another's core beliefs is inadvertently perceived as offensive and rude.

    All this talk about titties, is making me hungry. I need to hit the frig.
