Comment 22 by some asshole

It reminds me of my in-laws, who once nearly shit themselves when I once accidentally said "fuck" around their children, but who let the same very young children watch movies like A Nightmare on Elm Street, Scarface, and also let them play shotgun-to-the-head-type "Mature 17+" video

Wait, so its ok that Pacino says fuck about 8 billion times in that movie, but you can't?

Years ago, I was helping an associate out by looking after his kids for a day. The kids wanted to do nothing other than watch DVDs and play video games, and oh man, you should have seen what their parent's deemed permissible. R rated stuff, incredibly violent.

I asked my associate about letting young kids (all were under 10) watch this stuff, and he said he didn't want to sheild them from "real life".

Yeah, people getting blown away with no consequences, zombies...that's all real life.
