In Defense of Crap
Filed under: FCC
Though it doesn’t make for the most persuasive debate platform, a significant theme in the indecency battle is a grown-up’s right to seek out entertainment with no culturally redeeming value. Yes, dammit!
As an American, I absolutely refuse to have my private entertainment dictated to me by nuts. That’s what the Founding Fathers fought for, and that is one of the core freedoms we fight for to this very day — the right to watch whatever trash I want to as long as it doesn’t violate anyone else’s rights. I like cursing, a lot. I like ribald humor and morbid references and dark, dirty sarcasm smeared all over my brain like a stripper’s sparkles. If you don’t like it, fuck off. Go watch your “family-friendly” versions of films from Wal-Mart. Go enjoy one of the hundreds of thousands of books, CDs, movies and games that’s geared towards family or Christian audiences. Go to the park. Make a lanyard. I’d come up with more ideas, but I’ve got porn to download.
Again: Yes, dammit!
Update: Another discussion is taking place at TPMCafe.
