Sounds like folks in this thread are in need of one..
Both teams are snowflakes. They just express their snowflakery in different ways.

That’s very toxic man!
Almost got it.

You own yourself. You can kill yourself if you wish. You cannot harm anyone else under any circumstances. Well, self-defense but that's it.

So some kids throwing the Nazi salute in some random US town - how are they harming anyone else? Why don't you accept them for who they are - Nazis - provided they don't harm anyone else?

That is correct. So it is up to parents (gasp!) to take responsibility for their kids and what they watch. I don't think the networks are responsible. They've tried to conform to the 50s standards for years, and it is almost impossible to have realistic television if everything has to be Leave it to Beaver. They are competing with cable, so they have to take a few risks or they are going to become even more obsolete than they are now.

Technology has all kinds of parental controls on everything if they feel the need to protect the kids from what's out there.

Hey wanna represent one of the most vile groups of people that ever walked this planet? I won’t stop you. But I doubt many people are ok with normalizing a culture that justified the murder of millions.

Aside from a few news shows and movies, I watch very little TV and haven't actually followed a series since...........Seinfeld maybe??

Having said that I clicked on the link and had to laugh. Reality show my a**. Do you remember the comedy show Married With Children? All those gorgeous lesbian chicks flipping hair and pillow fighting? That's what this dumb a** "Reality Show" reminded me off. I've BEEN to a gay bar with two friends. Most of the girls were dogs, and most of the guys who were dressed like women looked better than the actual women. There's nothing reality about this reality show.

To the OP - don't fret. Just raise you kids with care and calm. Answer their questions. Teach them to think critically. Provide them with a stable foundation. They'll be fine.

Why would you let any child watch a show like Bachelor in Paradise in the first place?
Isn't this an adult themed show?

Making kids watch TV these days is a punishment. Many of them prefer their tablets.

It's not often I agree with PM but this ^^^ is spot on.
