I always thought that equating sex with violence was perhaps a sign of trauma and psychological issues. They are nowhere near the same at any level.

Which is worse?

Which is more likely to be censored?

Why?

I think sex is more likely to be censored because parents and children are more uncomfortable watching graphic sex in the same room than watching graphic violence. And that's because there is a plausible deniability that the parents have engaged in violent acts. Not so much for the sex.

On a slightly related note, check out these dumb-ass religious mooks censoring the in-flight movie on an airplane:

Seeing as it was a Drew Barrymore rom-com, they should be commended.

Previous incidents involving Haredi refusing to sit near female passengers got coverage.

This flight was carrying the Haredi Film Critics Association.

Can you see where I'm going with it ?

You know that x-rated porn is now available without even subscribing to a porn channel, right? It's on the movie channels overnight.

Violence in the Sopranos and similar shows can be VERY graphic, very realistic, and very  bloody.

Another comparison would be horror movies, where they work very hard to make them as violently gory as possible, with decapitations, disembowelments, etc. People will let their kids go to see that but be horrified at a mild porn movie. I still remember one movie - don't even remember the name, where a woman had her entire skin torn off, to hang there like a fleshy doll, screaming... I don't remember any porn movies I saw when younger, though. They didn't leave much of an impression.

Funny I had 3 sentences in that post and you quoted the first two but ignored the third where I addressed everything you're saying in this post.

A better comparison to the Sopranos would be a simulated sex scene in an adult-themed TV show, which frankly, is NOT a rarity.

Are you going to say that if Muslims acted like this on a plane it would be big news?  Because I think that fails on two fronts.

First off, the incident with Haredi holding up a plane for hours because they wouldn't sit near a woman was big news.  I can't tell whether this incident was big news or not, because I don't actually know when it happened... I just saw the video yesterday, but it might have been old or new.

Secondly, Muslims don't act like this on planes. They know that if they did this kind of stuff they would get tazered senseless, thrown in carriage, and renditioned to some black ops site as soon as the plane lands.

Plus, everyone knows they are arseholes, and everyone is more than happy to say so.

I think all religious fanatics are assholes. The Haredi tend to fly under the radar because they're small in number and somewhat insular. Wacko Muslims and Deep South fundamentalist Christians are usually hogging the spotlight.

Let's see.... nothing about it discussed on MLW, nothing on my facebook pages, nothing on the mainpage of CNN.

Now, imagine if Muslims in Canada had tried this stunt.

It was a minor story.  And the idea that Muslims know there's a double standard reinforces my point that there's a double standard.
