Call me old fashioned, but...

The FCC wants to start allowing stronger language, and full frontal female nudity on regular network television. Heres the link, with more info, and your chance to let your opinion be known.

Here are my thoughts on this. It's also what I said in my comment to the FCC.

Honeslty, I feel like if any FCC standards should be changing, it should be the other way around. I already can't let my daughter watch television with her grandma during the day because she watches soap operas and the amount of sex, and foul language on those shows alone is enough to make you want to just shut the t.v. off, and never turn it back on again.

And, I'm not a prude, by any means. I am not personally offended by the cursing that happens, or even the nudity, or sexual inuendo. But my children should not have to be exposed to such things, just because the television happens to be playing in the background.

The news is bad enough for kids to hear. But then, when we change the channel to spare them from that, the show that is playing is twice as bad. It's ridiculous, and unnecessary to use such antics to get people to watch these shows.

I long for the days of good family programing. Even just in the last ten years, the standards of television, and the FCC, have gone downhill, extremely. And, instead of trying to push the limits further, we should be trying to bring the limits back to where they used to be!
