Lev_Astov: So, they're now suggesting we view violent content like we view advertisements? So when I watch Kill Bill, my brain is really shopping for ways to kill people? What an absurd suggestion.My buying habits are affected by advertisers whether I like it or not because those products are things that exist as morally acceptable things, one way or another. As long as I have even a modicum of moral sense, and almost all of us do despite what we might think, violent content is automatically taken in a different way by my subconscious.The whole issue comes down to how to separate out those few who don't have the moral sense to keep the killing at bay.
peasandcarrots: Interesting word, isn't it: "glamorize." This is usually a word used by people who see something in a movie that they don't like that reflects society or the wants of the filmgoing public, with the unspoken implication that the thing on screen is in part responsible for the tragedies of real life.It's weird how so many people think that ANYTHING on a movie screen is glamorous, as if we're still in the glittering days of the studio system with its sparkling stars and spotlight performances. I went to see Les Miserables last week - there was NOTHING glamorous about its portrayal of what passed for the early 19th century justice system. Seeing Anne Hathaway as a shorn, toothless hooker dying of tuberculosis in a hospital bed, never to see her daughter again, did nothing whatsoever to fill me with desire to emulate her position. Yet there's this idea that simply rendering it onto a movie screen is "glamorizing" it.This was the tack Dan Quayle took when he accused Murphy Brown of "glamorizing" single motherhood - "it's on a screen, so therefore, ergo, they must be making it look appealing." I'm a little surprised that people are still trying to use it, but at least it's a flag. When someone uses the word "glamorizing," you pretty much know the rest of the article is that chess kid screaming "Stop liking what I don't like!"

Elzar: Mormons are a cult of Protestantism which is a cult of Catholicism which is a cult of Judaism which is a cult of some really old caveman religions./ Have I left anyone out that needs to be offended?
