Why can't any parent own up to their own worthlessness anymore?
I don't know about you, but I'm sick and fucking tired of listening to Jack(ass) Thompson jump all over the ESRB and video game maker's backs for the violence in their video games. Games with gore and blood, and naked people are rated M for a reason. Have people not learned at this point in time, that Jackass is just trying to get rich and famous -- and succeeding?
For years parents have been continually trying to blame something else for their shortcomings.
Little Johnny shot his sister in the foot. What do the parents do? Blame TV instead of the fact that Johnny's Dad is an alcoholic who threatens to shoot people because of their skin colour and keeps the gun fully loaded above the couch on the wall with the safety off.
Parents will blame the first thing they can get their hands on. Whether it be TV, movies, pop culture, video games, or the neighbour's kids.
I have a little secret for you all, and I want you to read this slowly so you understand it.
If your child kills another child because of what he saw in a video game, your child was fucked up long before he got anywhere near the video game. Perhaps you should take a look in the mirror.
Instead of planting your child in front of the television all day every day, how about you sit down with him/her and ask them how their day was? Stop letting TV and video games and school raise them. THATS YOUR JOB. If you cannot do that, then put your child up for adoption, there are tonnes of couples out there incapable of having children that would absolutely love to have a child they can pay attention to.
I'm in the midst of meetings with lawyers myself seeing if I can have the province legally grant me custody and make me the adoptive father of my step-son, since his biological father is a miserable failure, and his own son wants nothing to do with him, and frankly, I'm sick and tired of watching all these worthless maggot parents think they're God's gift to children when they can't be bothered to be good parents in the first place.
There are even parents out there who go out and buy games for their children that have the 'M' blatantly written on them, and then come back to the video game store bitching at the clerk because the game has violence in it!
These parents are the same fuckwits who sit back at the age of 60 and go, "Children today are all going to hell in a handbasket. We never imagined being that bad, and society's going to hell."
