It goes with the paper bag they're using to huff paint.

Well what will they think of next?

Boobies? What the fark is wrong with boobies?

"I don't want to have to go into a gas station, pay for gas and see naked people having sex, that's not appropriate at all,"

But free gas and dry humping are still acceptable, right?

Right next to the plastic toy guns. Go Grand Rapids!

Channel 24 News.

Keeping you SAFE from lighters that have pictures of naked people on them!

Rather appropriate that this story is brought to us by Wood TV.

Would you rather see clothed people having sex?

Look at those lighters!

They make me... so... HORNY!!!
 
2004-10-19 08:58:08 AM
This is ironic coming from a station that named itself so suggestively.
 
2004-10-19 08:59:43 AM
I'd be more concerned about them watching a channel called "Wood TV."

But seriously, this is dumb. Boobies never hurt kids.

I don't want to have to go into a gas station, pay for gas and see naked people having sex, that's not appropriate at all,

Then don't buy gas there you moronic biatch. As for all this "think of the children" crap...I'll leave thinking about children to Michael Jackson and his ilk.

I'm sure the parents want their kiddies using plain lighters to light up their cigarettes.

In fact, boobies have even been known to feed kids.
 
2004-10-19 09:01:31 AM
Boobies at the register would almost make it WORTH $2 a gallon -

So you can't show PICTURES of people screwing, but it's still OK to SCREW your customers, is that it? Glad thats' cleared up.

Good thing the kids are safe.

/from what?
 
2004-10-19 09:02:44 AM
You know who'd like those lighters?

MEN.

If your child's introduction to sexuality is a cigarette lighter that he bought at a gas station, you've failed as a parent.

Kinda brings a new meaning to the ole slogan "Flick my Bic".
 
2004-10-19 09:05:03 AM
I say leave 'em where they are! After all, if you don't start exposing kids to images of graphic sexual activity by the age of 6 or so, where will all the future p0rn "stars" come from? That's why you put it next to the candy!
 
2004-10-19 09:05:45 AM
Dirty, dirty titties. They're evil.
 
2004-10-19 09:06:15 AM
I'd buy these lighters, but my pyromaniac friend keeps stealing them.
 
2004-10-19 09:07:13 AM
Interesting how that's a problem but in South Carolina, gas stations sell lighters, fireworks and Mad Dog 20/20 all in the same place and nobody says a thing.

Imagine a child eyeing the candy rack at a gas station and getting an eyeful of pornographic pictures instead.

1. Parents want to shield their kids from ADULT things until they are adults. Do not question this practice, because frankly, its not going to change, and they aren't your kids.

2. Parents dont expect to bring their kids to the gas station and have to worry about Naked Pictures. Kind of like how they don't expect to see nudity when watching the Superbowl. Do you see a pattern yet? No? I'll keep trying.

3. Whether you think its wrong or right for people to be so uptight about sex and nudity in public places is irrelevant. Its not about that. Its about having safeguards, and being able to see "Oh, warning, nudity inside, come along Bobby and Jane, lets go to the next gas station."

Flame on.
 
2004-10-19 09:09:02 AM
Do you think the local show that people watch on that station before they go to work is called "Your Morning WOOD"?

Not teh boobies! Noooooooo! Boobies is teh debul!

I think it's daft that people don't see a problem with this:

a) It's illegal, that should be enough on it's own, people have the right etc. etc.

2) I don't think kids should be looking at pr0n. etc. etc.

I'd like to retain the option of choosing when to "introduce" my children to sexuality thankyouverymuch. I shouldn't have to preview a gas station to make sure it's free of viewable pornography before I bring my kid in to buy a slurpee. Stupid tag should go to submitter for not seeing the problem with this.

It kind of is. While you seem to be willing to accept the sheltering of kids, I see over-sheltering as wrong.

Its about having safeguards, and being able to see "Oh, warning, nudity inside, come along Bobby and Jane, lets go to the next gas station."

Where do you draw the line on safeguards? How much do you cater to people wanting to protect their kids?
 
2004-10-19 09:12:54 AM
I remember as a child being sent into the bootlegger's to buy daddy's beer, spending a great deal of time looking at the naked-lady lighters, pens with some liquid and a lady whose clothes would come off when you tilted them, dildos, shotgun shells, oversize firecrackers and "ni g g.erchasers", cock-rings, rubbers, square nails, strange little packets of ancient nudie pictures of bemused people who looked like my grandparents, snuff, chaw, and a few things that a ten-year-old could only guess at.

And look how good I turned out!!

I don't know, maybe it's just me but I think the general sentiment here is not so much that it's a bad idea to keep material with pornographic content out of eyesight from kids but rather that a situation that can be resolved relatively easily by moving the offending material behind the counter has escalated into a media event.

Very nice. That's my laugh for the day.

It's all about the buttsex.

I think they should give away a pack of Zig-Zags for every lighter purchased to boost sales.

A fair assumption. Maybe the woman was one of those types, you know, the sue first, ask questions later type.

I've always been a fan of safeguards, to a fault.

I think these parents are well within their rights to complain.

It is their choice as to how they want their children introduced to sex and related topics not the gas station's.
 
2004-10-19 09:18:22 AM
Whether you feel kids are over or under sheltered, bottom line...it's illegal. Besides, a parent should be the one to choose how and when a child is exposed to sex. The whole thing about being legally responsible for a child kind of dictates that.
 
2004-10-19 09:19:54 AM
They need to market it as an Adult Gas Station...or a gas station for the "mature audience".

My kid, at the age of three, saw a hooker in New Orleans with some big ole saggers hanging right out there in front of God and everybody.

"Daddy, what's wrong with her bellies?"

We've all heard this before. We've all said it before. It's like the restaurant that nobody goes to because it's too busy. However, it still must be argued.

I truly fail to understand the mind of an overly conservative sexually repressed parent. I grew up in a broken household where my mother had to be a father too. She spoke with me at a young age. She bought playboys for me. She told me things about her past - mistakes and chances she took. It was because of her liberal outlook on sexuality that molded the man I am today with regards to sex and relationships. I'm informed. Mature. Experienced. Loyal. Safe. I thank her endlessly for not being repressed and allowing me to figure out the realm of sex all by myself with her constant guidance and not that of my loser friends.

At what age are children allowed to learn about human sexuality according to these people? How are they to understand the changes of their bodies without guidance from their parents when they see something such as a boobie lighter? According to these people they just ignore it and want it removed from society.

Look parents. It's a tit. Your child won't be scarred for life. He won't be a pedophile for looking at it. He won't go to hell for thinking about it. Don't be shocked parents - you've got boobs too. Really, next time you go to the gas station, leave the kid in the car if you are that repressed. Live and learn. It's not my responsibility to make your world safe from everything you find offensive and it's certainly not the gas station's responsibility - it's yours.

So keep it up parents. Keep your kids on leashes and hide them from the real world. See how they turn out and regret it later. They'll end up hating you for removing things from their upbringing instead of teaching them.

/Oh I know I'm gunna get hit with some fark shrapnel for this one.

"cigarette lighters with pictures of boobies" ??

I would have thought by now there would have been a photoshopper that would make Boobies with pictures of Lighters on them. But no-o-o-o-o...

Fair enough. Do you agree that there is a point where it could get to be too many?

I believe there should be basic societal safeguards, but I also believe in putting the onus on parents to parent. Too many safeguards in my mind means less parental influence, which makes for screwed up kids.
