    Feb 26 2013: Well, this is the same old argument I see in my own country, casting blame on a topic, in this case "reality TV shows", for exposing children/youth to a certain influence, arguably from a "class" of people you would not otherwise associate with and specifically aimed at the language being used, as further proof we need some sort of censorship across the board to offset your inability to parent your own children. How ridiculous…don't want your kids influenced by TV….turn it off, send them to their room with a book, BE a parent and stop censoring my freedoms. And be sure, were it not for the fact that TED would censor me for using the language you seem to hold such contempt for, I would use "every" word at my disposal.
