I just finished watching the latest season of a particular tv show. While I was watching it I intentionally avoided reading about it anywhere so I don't accidentally spoil myself. Now that I'm done with it, I'm reading general and episode discussions about it, because that's damn interesting, especially for shows that are insanely interesting on their own.
In this particular instance, this season of that show contained a scene that features neither nudity nor any sexual intercourse, yet it seems to be the most popular point of discussion of this season right now.
There's some foul language ahead, in case you'd like to actively avoid reading such.
It never ceases to amaze me how twisted and messed up so many people are about sex and nudity in television and movies. I don't feel mean about calling them that. I think there's something seriously wrong with people who react completely irrationally, inhumanely even, to any portrayal of nudity and sexuality in whatever they watch. I feel like something is psychologically wrong with them. These are adults who get outraged from seeing nudity and sex on tv!
I'm highly certain there can be actual good reasons for this, but I never ever see such mentioned in such discussions.
In television and movies, everything goes! A trillion different kinds of violence is not only perfectly fine but welcome and encouraged and desired. Completely mentally messed up characters are great and cheered on and often worshipped. Lies, deception and manipulation are fun and thrilling. Giving people false senses of expectations in actual real life matters is alright and taken for granted.
At least portrayal of cruelty against animals (which is just fine too) actually evokes a reasonable and sane reaction.
At least people have a heart for animals, if not their fellow human beings, fictional or not.
In fiction, fuck everybody in every way! But not in the good way; that's evil!
But nudity and sex, two of the nicest things humans have, even merely implied, are just completely "unnecessary" (like they don't happen in real life) for fictional plots and are just offensive and unwatchable! Like those easily offended, psychologically unsound people think they can tell writers how to do a better job, because they clearly must have done a bad job because somebody got offended. Can't have that!
I just felt like ranting about that. It's probably somewhat relevant to art, considering art is often the subject of the very same weird shit.
Weird shit? Weird shit. It's weird shit that nudity and sexuality cause outrage. There's few more basic things to life than nudity and sex.
