If You Have an Erection for Over Four Hours...

Can someone please tell me what all the screaming and shouting is about over the Monday Night Football Promo? Since when is it out of the ordinary to feature sex on television?

Don't get me wrong. I would have been DIVING for that remote had my children been watching MNF with me last Monday night. It is ridiculous that we are constantly bombarded with the sleazy values of Hollywood. But as bad as it has become, I find it interesting that NOW someone is getting upset about it. Why is that?

There has been plenty to be upset about for a long time. One of my favorite (meaning I hate it the most) groping-for-the-remote-and-singing-loudly-moments are the many ads for Viagra, Cialis and other "erectile dysfunction/ enhancement" products. I am waiting for the moment when one of my younger kids ask me what it means when they say, "If you have an erection for more than four hours, seek immediate medical attention." Okay...

Anyway, my bottom line here is that there is way to much sex on TV. I am hoping that the outcry over the MNF promo will spill over to some of the other problems that normal (not thinking about sex 24/7) families face on the tube.

Well, I believe that it's the same principle as 9/11. Prior to that time, terrorists had attacked and killed Americans in numerous places around the world, including New York, but all we ever did in response was blow a few places up. That was the sum of our response. Why? The attacks, even totalled up, seemed rather minor. In Kerry's words, they were a nuisance.

Then two towers fell and bam. Now we're at war.

I think the wardrobe malfunction during the half-time ceremonies of the Superbowl accomplished the same thing in America's reaction to sleaze on TV. It was the FCC's 9/11.

The networks are just cluing in to the fact that there's a war on, and they are the 'terrorists'.

I know, I know. I said I was done over here, but this aint political and I couldn't pass this one up. Since I don't watch football, I didn't hear about this until the next day when it was on the front page of every single paper at the train station.
America is afraid to admit, by and large, that we are a sex-crazed nation. As I have already read today, "Desperate Housewives" airs at the same time on Sunday, that the football game ran on Monday. Also, daytime soaps are often just as racey as that ad/spoof whatever it was. The point? The backlash against this makes NO SENSE. In Europe, frontal nudity is commonplace on TV but graphic violence is not. Go figure.
Personally, I found it far more offensive a few years back when Aerosmith and Britney Spears were singing while a nuke-ya-ler bomber flew overhead. . .

The fundamental answer: A white woman gets naked for a black man. America predictably freaks out. It's no more complex than that.
