Jerry Springer is a day time show and people are worrying kids will see this show?

I'm OK with it as long as it's lesbians. Dudes? No way.

Seems to me that anyone letting children watch reality TV is a bad parent to begin with.

Lotta fragile men on the forum today. Oy.
I sure as heck don't. However, there are a few reality TV shows I don't mind them watching because I know it's pretty safe.

Isn't that a double standard?

As a kid, that's absolutely the last thing I would have wanted to see, other than maybe puppy torture films. But... hey if someone, anyone, wants to watch that sort of thing, have at it. Free country, supposedly. Personally, at this point, I'd rather watch grass grow or someone frying leeches for dinner, which would be more interesting/entertaining.

In our day and age no one should give unrestricted media access to a minor. In the old days they used to filter the books kids were allowed to read. Some books were deemed improper for young girls, Madame Bovary comes to mind (though the moral at the end is quite conservative). I haven't read Catcher in the Rye but I heard teens were not allowed to read it either. Parents are ultimately responsible for what their children see/read.

Catcher in the Rye was never banned across the board; it was done by individual schools.

Before online books though you could only get books from the library or book stores.
That's where books got filtered and if you were a kid you were not buying/checking out "The Graduate"

Libraries enforced kids section/adult section and your library card had a different color.
I don't remember too much about bookstores though but I was an avid reader and checked out the max from the library every week.

(I actually snuck into the adult section and read "The Graduate" right there in the library so even then they couldn't stop what they wanted to stop)

All reality shows are scripted lies anyway. Nothing real about them.

OP - you are a prude. If you don't like it, move on. Seriously, some people need to just mind their own darn business.
