Suck it, Parents Television Council


Yeah, so, I hate, hate, hate the Parents Television Council.

I have always hated them. I first heard about them when I was a TV critic. I hate judgmental, preachy pricks like them, who think they get to decide for everybody what they can and can’t watch on TV.

So, now the jerkstores have got their holier-than-thou panties in a bunch about CBS’ rebroadcasting of the Showtime show “Dexter.” Click here if you want to read the story

Prepare for ranting in 3 … 2 … 1 …

The whole thing pisses me off, because the mission of the Parents Television Council is to “protect” children from sex, violence and dirty words on TV. Well, guess what? No one’s children should be up at 10 p.m. on a Sunday night watching “Dexter.” If they are up at 10 p.m. watching “Dexter,” then maybe a questionable TV show isn’t that family’s biggest problem.

The Parents Television Council thinks we are all retards who can’t use a remote. If you don’t like “Dexter,” if you think it’s gory and offensive, then don’t watch it! You push a little button on the remote control. Vote with the remote!

No “Won’t someone think of the children” organization gets to decide for me what I can watch. I will decide for myself because I have a brain.

Not every TV show is supposed to be for children. Shit, not every TV show is supposed to be for adults. That’s why there are so many different TV channels. There are plenty of TV shows and channels out there for easily offended assholes like the folks at the Parents Television Council.

I suggest the PTC douchebags take the energy that they exert in trying to control everyone and channel into things that actually would help children, such as increasing funding for public schools and after-school programs, cracking down on deadbeat parents, etc.

Of course, what the hell do I know? I’m just some heathen that watches TV shows with sex, violence and dirty words.


Author: The Sonia Show

I'm a writer/podcaster/mother/goober in San Francisco who likes to drink beer, shop, laugh and make other people laugh, watch old movies, feed my unhealthy obsession with pop culture, kick breast cancer's ass, go on adventures with my mighty, mighty good man David and my awesome autistic son, Calvin, wear orange and root for the San Francisco Giants, participate in general jackass-ery, talk about TV, eavesdrop on strangers' conversations, make nerdy “Star Wars” and “Simpsons” references, and post personal things about myself on the web for all to read, which makes me some sort of literary exhibitionist.
