Top 10 Ways Society Discourages The Objectionable

1 2

6. Force:

In Northwood, Ohio a 14 year old was forced to remove his shirt which had a slogan from a rap group called Insane Clown Posse. The police threatened to arrest him if he did not take it off.

 

7. Bans:

Large corporations are in on the objectionable material and discouraging minors from getting a hold of them. In 2009, Starbucks in the US refused to distribute Bruce Springsteen’s album “Devil and Dust” because they felt it had adult content. In the U.S., one should note that Starbucks does stock CDs for sale.

 

8. Parodies:

Many countries create parodies which try to change people’s opinions. Malaysia in 2011 altered Lady Gaga’s song Born This Way to deal with issues of homosexuality, bisexuality and transgendered. Malaysians still see someone being gay as taboo.

 

9. Refusing to Sell:

Many companies and stores refuse to sell items which represent and market the objectionable. For example, in 2003 when Michael Jackson was arrested on suspicion of child molestation, stores pulled his albums of the shelves in many cities.

 

10. Lawsuits:

This is something that is not a laughing matter. In fact people sue others because they’ve lost something significant like a loved one.
