look up any word, like pussy:
1. stopping the free flow of art and ideas.
For those of us in the US we do NOT enjoy the right to free speech (even though it is in the constitution). The supreme court ruled in the Miller case that "obscene" materials are not protected under the 1st amendment and can be banned or regulated; translation: regulated censorship is constitutional thanks to a few activist judges who wanted the government to impose its morality on us. Basically if the subject or content is sexual in any way then whether its obscene or not is up for majority vote; they actually said if the average person would be offended by it and think that it had no artistic value (if you weren't offended by it or thought it was a work of art why would you want to ban it in the first place). This is why it is illegal to give porn to minors, because it shows sex even though this should be decided and enforced by the parents the government is getting involved. Also there's no law against showing violent material to minors, so basically its worse to expose them to consensual sex than murder.

1. What lazy parents use as an excuse to not want to teach their children what is and isn't acceptable to view. Proven to be useless because all it does is make the children even more curious as to why it is censored.

2. What the government uses to keep the dumb masses from finding out the truth about its corruption and incompetence.

Fuck censorship.

An easy substitute for lazy parents that shouldn't have had children in the first place if they cant teach them the difference between right and wrong.
Idiot parent groups - "We will not let our kids be subjected to this sort of content because they will start going out and killing people!"

Enlightened Person - "Maybe if you weren't negligible parents and taught your children the difference between right and wrong then we wouldn't have the problems that we do in society"

Preventing details of songs, movies, or any other form of entertainment that parents think is obsene. This ruins many movies/television shows because many things like gore, sex, violence, swears, gay relationships, drug useage, and other things are completely left out. Also, censorship is responsible for starting many useless parent groups that try to prevent anyone under the age of 18 from listening to music with profanity, watching movies, or watching TV. In other words, censorship needs to stop NOW!
Two of the parent groups that are for censorship, the PMRC (which is anti-music) and The White Dot (which is anti-television) have to be the most pointless, worthless organizations ever, right up there with Right-to-lifers and PETA.
