Poll: What Do You Think Should Be Censored?


Recommended Posts

Blood and guts or Boobs and butts?

 

I've started this topic over at Spawn and I wanted to read what the TNI folks here think.

 

So if you have a choice to censor either one type of figure, which type would it be? I love them both but I think one has more power to be censored over the other. I think a sexy looking figure shouldnt be the victim of paint abuse and seeing a pretty gory figure on the pegs could really disturb some kids out there.

How can there be any sensible choice when BOTH offend?

 

 

What's the lesser of two evils? It depends upon what your personal definition of "evil" ,or offensive in this case, is and thats not a standard thats universal.

 

I'm squeamish, I detest gore, but as beautiful as the human body is its not something I want to see flagrantly depicted on toys. I've passed on many a gory toy--simply because there's no attraction in it for me. I've also had chances to buy very detail anatomically correct female figures, with .......ahem.....special modifications.

 

Its an impossible choice.

I assume you're talking about the Zenobia figure being censored by McFarlane and not, say, the bloody wolf guts in the Red Riding Hood figure coming out? I would have to go for the Zenobia figure(ie sexy figure) not being censored over the gratuitous gory wolf with the Red Riding Hood figure(ie violence).

 

Not everyone here collects superhero figures but I personally dont see a kid being ruined by seeing someone in a skimpy outfit versus a skin-tight brightly colored outfit(like with nearly all superheroes).

 

Obviously I'm not talking about, like, Adult Superstars figures, those aren't appropriate for kids imo.

im not talking about one particular type of figure. Im speaking generally. Are some people more offended by revealing, sexy and scantilly clad figures or gruesome, visually disturbing and violent ones.

 

Its just what you lean towards the most. Yes, to some its an impossible choice. There is no right or wrong answer. Its just a poll.

If your talking about figures, I don't care for boobs and butts... I wouldn't be able to display 'em anyways!

You guys seem okay with all the boobs and butts thing, like it doesn't effect kids. Last I checked the divorce rate is at an all time high and porno is all over the place. So yeah I'm pretty sure it does effect children. Then again violence isn't good either.

 

You can't allow one without allowing the other. I say keep them away from children, keep them to specialty stores or online only. These definitely shouldn't be in Wal-Mart or Toys R Us. To a certain degree though, a little blood is meh and a little skin is meh but too much is like whoa back off this is my kid here.

I think the porn figures are not needed. Especially when they are sold in stores that kids go and also buy comics or yu gi oh cards

Well at the comic store I work at (work one day mostly just to spend on comics/toys the same day I get paid lol) porn is pretty much kept in boxes and stuff except for a few playboys left on the stands. I know they're covered up on the cover, but c'mon we have little kids come in all the time. I'm embarassed when a mom comes in with her kids and playboy is like right next to the counter. I fight my boss on it, but it's a never ending battle that he'll always win.

 

We don't sell the porno figures (usually), but I completely agree. Besides, who wants an action figure of that? All it does is make the person buying it seem like a complete hopeless prevert.

 

I dunno, you'll probably all fight me on it, but that's how I feel.

Both should be censored, but if I had to pick one, i'd say blood and gore. When I was little, Boobs and butts meant nothing to me so always censoring them doesn't mean alot but blood and gore would stick with me. Not that i'm saying those Adult Superstar figures should be sold at Wal-Mart (but is would be funny) but at the same time, I think people REALLY over react when a breast is shown in public.

mcfarlane is all blood and guts but the whole porn-figures are a shame when sold at comic book stores. Most kids still do buy comics from time to time and they go to comic books stores for their yu gi oh fix. I think Midtown comics has like half a floor just for porn.

Not to say that I don't think partial nudity is harmful, but I prefer to think that the blood and guts is MORE harmful. I mean, in the course of a person's lifetime, it's more likely that they're going to see a naked person than a dismembered person... more likely to have kids than witness a murder.

 

That, and... I hate to say it, but it's not hard to go online and check out porn anymore. Kids are gonna see it in some medium or another, so censoring it in comics or on figures is sorta moot.

I think the blood and violence and stuff should be censored. But I think Nudity and stuff should be UNcensored. Why cover up the human body? Your mom has boobs, heck even some dudes have boobs. *glares at some TNI members* But as long as it isnt gratuitious*sp*. Like I think the adult film star toys are dumb. But if its something like that Mcfarlane figure, then leave it uncensored, its not like PUTTING IT OUT THERE. Its just there. It makes it look more realistic I guess. In my opinion, the world is violent enough, we dont need more in toys. But that being said, the human body is natural, and I just hate people who are against showing it.

I say nothing should be censored, let the consumer decide what is appropriate and what is not. If i had to choose one i guess the gore though, namely because being exposed to so much of that when i was younger probobly shaped me into the person i am now whether that is bad or good is topic for another debate.

agree with leo on this one, most comic shops/stores cover up or at least put where kids/that are not old/tall enough can not see em... lets face it though, if there tall enough to see it they have most likely seen/done it them selfs allready these days lol

So wait... you're now attributing the divorce rates to porn?

Ummm.... yeah? I mean c'mon porn is all over the internet and its everywhere. What do you think toys that show nudity are, just a different reprsentation of porn. Do a search on the internet for people who lost significant others to porn. It's pretty bad...

Porn is more accepted in society today and y'know it's really making America go down the gutter, and I mean I love beautiful naked women, but it's the truth.
