    Not to mention that other US show on every monday that you like with people with their naked chests and tight fitting clothing grabbing and grinding against each other.
    That show with nudity and swearing in it, it sucks.

    What show is it?

    By the way, wrestling is proof that homo-eroticism is less offensive to Americans than female nipples.

    Actual proof of superiority of the US system. You can choose to have crappy HBO movies or not, but the channels you will for sure get you can be sure are at least some what kid appropriate, at times anyway.

    If someone wants to be politically correct go ahead and let them if they want to be incorrect go ahead and let them. I try to be politically correct sometimes but sometimes i just cant do it, its what makes us human.

    Very bad. It promotes the idea that a person's "right not to be offended" is more important than free speech. I can't support that.

    Lessened-by far. People need to grow a back bone, and learn not to care about what others think of them. Even if I hate something someone else is saying, I support their right to say it.

    Thank you.
    Irl, I try to avoid people for the most part because I usually offend them the minute I open my mouth. Unlike most, I don't bother to avoid the forbidden topics of religion and politics around friends and family. That being said, even other topics like poking fun of certain people seem to be off limits.
    I once made fun of fat people and was compared to Dorian Grey.

    People make fun of other people all the time. It happens. It's human nature to "pick each other apart." In fact, it's what we do best.

    I don't think it's poltical correctness as it is simply censorship (which is not necessarily a bad thing). There are plenty of things that can be shown on TV that are not politically correct.

    That's all what cable is for. I don't particularly think it's a bad thing to keep nudity and bad language off network and off the radio (think of the CHILDREN). Besides, there's so much now that's permissible than there used to be.

    I always used to wonder why Ricky and Lucy slept in separate beds. I was told years after I first started watching the show that they couldn't show a man and woman in the same bed on television. Apparently, there was also controversy about showing Lucy pregnant. Now days it seems weird that those would be issues, ya know?

    I think I heard that they couldn't even say the word "pregnant". It's funny though to watch 'em smoke like chimneys. Having main characters who smoke is definitely not PC now. Funny how things change, isn't it?
