No more butts!#1
Posted: 1/26/08 at 2:38pm
WASHINGTON - The Federal Communications Commission has proposed a $1.4 million fine against 52 ABC Television Network stations over a 2003 broadcast of cop drama NYPD Blue.

The fine is for a scene where a boy surprises a woman as she prepares to take a shower. The scene depicted "multiple, close-up views" of the woman's "nude buttocks" according to an agency order issued late Friday.

The agency rejected the network's argument that "the buttocks are not a sexual organ."

Weren't there a few male butts shown too? Do our butts not count?

To start, I think mainstream society is way to uptight about nudity.

Usually on TV breasts are allowed to be exposed as long as the nipples aren't, so wouldn't it make sense that butts could be shown but not butt-holes (to put it politely).

I agree. I hate how people think naked = pornographic. A lot of the time, it's not the case. Pornography is meant to excite. A naked body is just a naked body.

Anyway, I had to look their names up, but didn't Dennis Franz, Jimmy Smits, and Mark-Paul Gosselaar all show their butts? And wasn't Rick Schroder nude, minus a sock over his crotch?

What about them?

A naked body may be a naked body, but I was bummed when I discovered that Zack Morris's naked butt was on TV and I missed it.

I don't understand why they're being fined now for something that happened in 2003. Statute of limitations much?

Shows you where my brain is. I thought he was quitting smoking.
But I heard about this .Pretty lame. The fine is probably ten minutes of advertising time.

"That's the price of living in a Christian nation."

Did Jesus have anything to say about nudity? Or was that part added by King James?

The vast majority of this country's sexual hang-ups were created (or fostered) by Christianity.

We're the government - we're here to help you.

This is really pressing business for the government to get involved with.

The old Christian bogeyman again. When in doubt, blame them for everything. My boss is to cheap to give me a raise so I think I will blame Christianity for it as GWB was already taken.

No, usually the Jews are blamed for that.

Are you saying that Christianity encourages a healthy attitude toward sex?

Wasn't it only after Adam and Eve sinned that they decided to wear clothes?

I may be old but I am not that old so I cannot say. Maybe they got tired of looking at each others bodies or maybe there was a sale so they said what the hell.

Actually, its America's fault for making such a big deal over nothing.

Does this mean Disney will be fined for showing all that hot, creamy ass in the original POLLYANNA?

A butt isn't considered a sexual organ. It's not even an organ.

It's not like they showed the anus, which, technically, isn't a sexual organ either.

Well, I just hope that when JC returned home (following all that nastiness at Calvary) that he had a long, stern talk with the big daddy about his putting all these nasty bits on humans. Just think - if he'd left them off then all these arbiters of morality could get away from their police work and go out and get jobs aiding the public rather than prosecuting them!
