Well here's my take on it...
What I find funny is how people like to present these over sexualized images of things and portray them as "reality." I mean in many of these shows people participate in intercoarse like its some kind of game, and yet still rarely do people get STD's or pregnant (the latter seems to be happening more, with all these teen dramas.) I don't think many of these portrayals of sexuality are realistic at all.
Violence: As a novelist and a screenplay writer (and yes I am a Christian) I can see that violence often has its place. Sensless violence (people getting decapitated just fro the heck of it) is stupid, and like a nife used against brick in excess becomes dull (the same thing can be said with sex and language.) However, if the violence is used as an emotinal cadalist for a charecter's motivation, and not just as a cheep popularity jack (ex. The last part of Romeo and Juliet) then I say it can be one of the most effective plot devices in existance. BTW if any Christian comes lecturing to any of you about violence not having a place anywhere tell them that God's used it before, and that they should go read Judges, and Song's of Solomon some of the stuff in their is like : .
Language: I myself never use foul language, it's just who I am and what I believe, and if people think that's stupid then that's their problem. I have had someone say "hell" before, and even had someone call someone else a "bastard." But, often I believe that excesive offensive stuff is the sign of bad writing not good writing. I mean everyone is so trying to rebel in this day and age that they don't realize how much their conforming. I mean how many raunchy cartoons do we need (not to say that cartoons are just for kids or anything, I'm currently watching EVA for the 1st time.) But still.
Oh well. Ending rant now.
