    thanks for the letter intrepid...my parents constantly wonder if I spend too much time gaming or around too many violent things, and that is where my hostile nature comes from, and this letter virtually helps prove the point that it comes from my emotional suffering, the games and graphics, if anything, help it be temporarily released...

    well back to that position paper I can't seem to get done..

    I really agree with what is being said here. This would also be nice in one of those forum or game policy things. Real considerate of you to take a lot of time to post this.

    oooh "the" topic lots of angry senior citizens love to talk about, the way kids of way too young age "KILL" ppl in the virtual world, now timmy (11) must run outside with a knife after a game of san andreas or take his car and cause collisions with grandma with little kids in pushers after playing carmageddon, yeah sure ofcourse, the "consoles" as the yought like to call them are nothing else as lil brainwash machines invented by the bush family to get every schoolkid to join the army to re-inact the horrors we see on call of duty or any other war game, Yeah ofcourse yeah sure.....

    (ps....there might be a SLIGHT possibility that young kids Actually know that whats on television isnt actually the thing they are supposed to do.....maybe....)

    I must say that it seems a little over the top that the teacher found them offensive.
    Whats he gonna do when he sees a 16yr old in a mini skirt? Have a heart attack or sue her?

    The following post is more directed at parents and adults, but I think everyone should read it and think about it.




    Personally if people have that much of a problem with this sh*t they should get their heads checked out. Everyone is WAY to focused on what they think is good for their kids that they don’t actually think, nor care about them anymore. Ill use an analogy from the South Park Movie. In that movie Kyle’s mother was so worked up over Kyle and the other kids watching a movie with swears and she ends up starting a war. Thats a perfect example of what’s going on today, people think that they are doing good for their kids by suppressing them and not letting them be themselves that they don’t think how it affects their children. I was not allowed to do ANYTHING when I was a kid and now my life is ruined because of it. I wasn’t allowed to go anywhere, do anything, and I had to be in bed by 8:30 pm every night. And this happened till I said f*ck this and moved out at 16. Really a 16 year old going to bed at 8:30 is completely unreasonable. Right now my 3 year old little sister has her bedtime at 9 pm. I dropped out of school because I was pressured to do so well in school. I know I could do but I wasn’t able to have friends or do anything besides chores and school. Because I wasn’t allowed to socialize as a kid I have paid for it now that I am older. I don't do well in social situations, I'm not very outgoing, and I have a hard time finding a job. Speaking of jobs and me being suppressed, I wanted to get my learners at 14 (when I could) and my father wouldn't give me money to do so and said that I would have to pay for it myself, but he wouldn't let me get a job. Yes I know that this post is about the letter at the top of the page and throughout what I have said I do have a point. When you think you know what is best for someone and you force them to do so, it will ruin their lives. Instead of listening to morons like Doctor Phil, listen to your children instead, and their friends, let your kids be who they want to be instead of what you THINK they should be. Nowadays violence, nudity, drugs and bad language are everywhere, don’t hide them from you kids, or yourself for that matter and accept them as a way of life. Yes drugs and violence are bad, but learn about them instead of blocking them out all together. Don't try and find causes to fight to keep children safe while ignoring what they have to say. If we all could learn from our previous mistakes this world would be a better place.



    These are my opinions, you don’t have to agree with them but at least think about what I have to say. And for you people who just looked at this as a long post, or read half of it and decided its just my life story and decided not to read it I am asking you to read it (or the rest) because I do have a point
