This is exactly what I am talking about when I say that TV / Media / Internet is creating problems in society .... there are people reading your post and putting their heads in the sand as if its not happening BangHead The images young kids have access to is untold and nobody in a position of real power is willing to really challenge whats going on.

So grammer ... in some peoples eyes you are a scare monger, frightening those who think children are able to make rational adult choices and would not be manipulated by the mass media out there. Its a sick world and pandoras box was opened ages ago ..... you can bet theres a lot more whackos like our Foxrock Architect are out there, but hey look X Factors on tonight :(

Supposed to be parental guidance and filters Denis but it appears that a lot parents really don't give a sh anymore, and let's face it. the kids will find a way around it anyway.
