Too Much Raunch Is Never Enough, Not If You’re Australian

Last night on the Gina-and-Lachlan station, a panel news show were discussing whether there has been too much porn-style images, raunchy (do people actually use that word outside of the media?) images that are available to children via music videos.

Apparently the mummy-bloggers children have discovered ‘Rage‘.

In order to show how outraged they were, they proceeded to show an array of music clips from recent videos and the more tame 80s.

Was this just a reason to show some interesting pictures on a day that was heavy with politics and budget speculation?

Or is the media just softening us up for a campaign to Save The Children and crack down on internet and bring in even more restrictions that are already in place. …If this is the case, there be will be a rash of other ‘won’t somebody think of the children?’ stories in all sections of the media.

One of the videos they montaged was Beyonce’s ‘Single Ladies‘, but really how more raunchy is it, compared to John Farnhams 1967 ‘Sadie, The Cleaning Lady‘. Forty years later, and there is not much difference in the outfits, except the little apron is missing. Images like this didn’t corrupt the grandparents, it didn’t corrupt the parents, but now we are all outraged it may corrupt the children.

This was also one of the music videos mentioned, in my opinion, completely unwatchable. Not because of any images contained, but because it also involves listening to Rihanna. (may not be available due to age-restrictions on the video from Youtube)
