And in that kind of situation it's up to the owner/user just like with any kind of potentially problematic situation.
I teach ESL downtown, and our primary market is adults (20+), but every winter we get a kid or three. We have a TV at work that usually shows "fun" shows; CSI, criminal minds, Jerry/Maury and the like.
We had criminal minds on, and a person on the screen was being seduced on a balcony overlooking the water when a body began to float up. The channel was changed, much to the distress of my coworkers, until it was pointed out that the kids were in the room.
It's not about having it or not, it's about using it properly. My stepmom hates it when people say 'fuck' or 'shit' around her. She knows the words exist but she doesn't like them. So, I take them out of my vocabulary when I'm around.
When I'm out with people I call friends, why should I have to censor myself? Should I hold my phone away from everyone else for a minute while the screen goes black before putting it on the table on the fear that someone might be offended?
Fuck that. Posted via RS Mobile
