i so just got an enraging phonecall in the middle of working.



them: is the lady of the house there?

me: uh, this is she?

them: hi, i'm mike dove with the children's whatever act. this isn't a solicitation and will only take about 90 seconds.

me: umm.. okay

them: *spiel about how entertainment is getting more edgy and parents feel powerless to stop it* do you feel this way?


me: no, not really.

them: ........do you have any children or grandchildren under the age of 6?

me: no. i hate children.

them: well you don't have to have children to participate. we're an organization that doesn't believe in censorship but hollywood passes up on hundreds of family based themed movies every year....

me: let me stop you right there so we don't waste eachother's time. i don't believe in this "foam pad the world" mentality people have. it's not society's job to parent children. it's the parent's job. hollywood is a business, they produce what sells. if all these people want family movies, go see the movies and more will be made. it enrages me when these wingnut advocacy groups feel the need to change the world when they're obviously in the minority. entertainment is an art, and stifling those filmakers and actors by trying to force hollywood into making more "family friendly" fluff is bullshit. thank you and have a nice day. *click*
