Music Video Censorship

Posted on

Many of the music videos produced today and watched by kids are not appropriate. The values they contain are often very negative, however, we do live in a free country that is based on freedom of expression! So what do you think, should music videos be censored?

    I think music videos should be censored because of foul language because of the language kids been secretly saying swears when their parents been gone because kids think it’s cool to swear cause they heard a swear from a rap music video or something else. 😀

    I think that music videos should not be censored and here are all the reasons below.

    First I think this because I believe that we have the freedom of choice which allows us to watch what we want to watch.

    Secondly I think that we have the freedom of speech so that means we can say what we want to say like we can speak our mind.

    Also I think that we have artistic expression which means we can do what we want to do.

    Lastly I think that we have the freedom of expression which means we can express ourselves.

    In conclusion I think we should not censor music videos.

    I think that kids should not be seeing the music videos because kids are to young to watching the videos and looking and seeing the videos. It should be parental guidance.

    Should music videos be censored?
    My reason why is protection of youth. Kids should only be allowed to watch age-appropriate music videos. Parents will be happy when kids do this.
    My conclusion is: Music videos should be censored all the time.

    Should music videos be censored

    Most parents say that music videos should be censored from children and only for a certain age group, well I disagree with the parents and I think that they should not be censored.

    My first reason why they should not be banned is because here in Canada, where a free country, so we have the freedom to do whatever we want and no one can tell us off, so that’s my first reason why they shouldn’t be banned.

    My second reason why is because we can express ourselves freely

    Should Music Video Be Censored?

    Some parents believe that music videos that are inappropriate, and that children should not be able to view this content. But first I have some arguments against censoring music videos.

    Freedom in Canada us Canadians have Freedom so have freedom of choice, speech. So should be able to watch what we want when we want to.

    It’s a form of expression artistic whatever you want to call it. It’s a form of expression no matter what.

    Ok, here is some for censoring music videos. Parent Guidance and protection of youth. Every parent protect their children from harmful things like for example inappropriate content witch can change behavior!

    Last and final one Religious Beliefs. Some families have religious beliefs and don’t that to change. So letting kids access inappropriate content take away those Religious Beliefs.

    This is just my opinion from the arguments above you can see I am sitting on the fence like you. THE CHOICE IS YOURS.

    Should Music Videos be Cencored?
    ON the Fence
    I honestly don’t know whether or not music videos should be censored. There are plenty of different arguments for each side.
    For: One argument for making music videos censors would be that might encourage inappropriate behaviour. I believe this because some specific music videos include encouragement being racist, being sexist, drugs, and other inappropriate matter. If the children of this generation continue watching these videos, they might start to act like the people in these videos. I don’t want to live in a world like that.
    Against: The reason that I am against censoring is that taking away the choice in the music videos we watch will make us less creative, less unique, and less inspired. I watch a lot of music videos that inspire me to actually do something with my life. It inspires me to write it inspires me to learn. It inspires me to be more of myself.
    These are my arguments for, and against censoring. I don’t know my decision yet, but I hope I do soon.

    I think music videos shouldn’t be censored.
    the first reason why i think music videos shouldn’t censored is that artist have the freedom to express them self’s. I think that because artist should be able to show what they want to show to express them self’s.
    the next reason why i think they shouldn’t be censored is because people have the freedom of choice. i think that because people should be able to watch what they want to watch without anyone telling them what to watch.
    the third reason why i think why they shouldn’t censor music videos is artist can express them self’s in anyway the want. i think that because artist should be able to express them self’s how ever they want to express them self’s.
    the last reason why i think they shouldn’t censor videos is people have the freedom of speech. i think that because people have the right to say what they want to say.
    this is why i think they shouldn’t censor music videos.

    MUSIC VIDEOS
    There are many people who love connecting the music the like, with the music videos that artists create. Some portray a good message, and some just portray money, or bad behavior. Because of this, I believe that some music video should be censored for people underage. Here are some of the reasons why.
    One of the reasons I believe this is because of the way stars often dress or the way the look. Many people see these stars that look perfect from magazines, to photographs, and music videos for the matter, and wonder why the cant match up to these people that they see on the videos. Well, no one can. Some of these people may begin to feel self- conscious about how they look, and not realize that 99.9% of the time, the stars are edited to look a certain way.
    Another reason I believe that some music videos should be banned from kids is because they often promote violence, sex, drugs etc. because kids can be so influenced by these stars, the may follow some of these acts which is not good in society and kids overall health.
    Lastly, at least 95% of the time, music videos don display reality. This could give kids mixed thoughts about how society is and he way we behave, and give them the wrong ideas about to treat others.
    Therefore, kids underage should not be watching inappropriate music videos, and they should be cencored.

    Should music videos be censored?

    All lot of people think music videos should be censored and some people think it shouldn’t be, for me I am in the middle

    Here are some reasons why I think it should be 1. Bad images like wrecking ball 2. A bad message like thrift shop

    And the reasons why it shouldn’t be censored,1. Good messages like fire work.

    And that is why I don’t know if music videos should be censored

    I think that music videos should be censored.
    Because young children should not be able to watch music videos that are not for their age because. It might not be good for their age.
    Also music videos should be rated so they will know if it is good for their age or not.
    And parental guidance the childs parents should be able to tell their children what to watch and what not to watch

    MUSIC VIDEOS
    This is one easy question but there are so many opinions on it: should music videos be banned? I personally think that videos should not be banned and that children and teens will be able to make the right choice.
    First off, music videos let artists express themselves and their taste in music. If an artist decides to write music and create a video, that’s how they want to express them-selves. That should be their own personal business and other people should not be judging and censoring their work. How are they supposed to make money?
    Next students, children and teens are probably able to make the right choice and watch age appropriate material. Yes there are some kids who will watch bad stuff, but they should be asking their parents what they can and can’t watch.
    Also, if you didn’t remember, we live in a free country! Saying that we do so, our nation should be able to freely watch the videos and content that they desire to.

    Should Music Videos be Censored?
    Do you agree that music videos should be censored or do you think that music videos should not be censored? I’m sort of in the middle because some if it is really inappropriate and some of it isn’t that bad. Your parents should tell you if it’s alright to watch and what not to watch. Kids will see this bad stuff cool and then will see this person as a remodel.

    I think that music videos should be censorship. Censorship helps use by protecting us from inappropriate talk.

    The issue of censored and not censored videos.
    I am on the fence with censored and not censored videos this is the reason why I think that.
    I think you should have a free choice to watch the videos you want. I think this because, you have a right to choose other things and why not be able to choose the videos you like?
    Another reason why I’m on the fence is some people show their expressions. When they do show their expressions they are showing how they feel. I have sawn lots of videos like this.
    Here are some reasons why it’s good to watch censored videos.
    Some videos are not reality. This would be believing in fake facts and telling other people lies about singers/pop stars/and more.

    The issue here is whether or not videos should be censored, I have not made my decision, so, here are some reasons why or why not videos should be censored.

    First, there is freedom of expression, there has been complaints of how the artist is acting in the video. Artists should be able to express their feelings through their music, if videos are censored, then how can people express their feelings and emotions.

    Next, there is protection of youth. If videos are censored, then there is a possibility that kids will grow up with a bright future. If they see uncensored videos, then they are going to think that whatever the people in the video are doing is okay.

    Then there is freedom of choice. sometimes its okay to make your own choice in life, even if there is bad stuff in it.

    lastly, there is parental guidance, i believe that parental guidance is important for kids everywhere. parents should be there.

    so, that is my reasons.

    Music Video Censoring or not?
    Should music videos be censored or not? Questions like this concern parents, guardians, and even teachers. I’m here to answer this question; some may think differently of my thinking but I hope you understand where I’m coming from, I believe music videos shouldn’t be censored.
    Freedom of Expression. Kids believe that showing their expressions aren’t bad, they believe that having the freedom of expression is better than having no freedom off their expression at all. Children experience so many things that sometimes can’t be held in and can be let out to the people who experience and express the same thing, children need to know that there’s someone else out there who is in the same shoes as they are.
    Freedom of Choice. Children should be able to do what they want to do. As long as it’s appropriate, children should do what they want to do without anyone controlling them. Children control themselves, not meaning they can completely take responsibility on, but if you truly believe in your child or student, let them take on their dreams, let them believe.
    Artistic Expression. Everyone knows that in a child’s stage in life they want to show their artistic side. Children shouldn’t be treated like puppets and should be able to be as artistic as they want. If children are treated like puppets, then there dreams might not be as strong as they used to be, being able to love your dream should be allowed. Being able to believe in yourself should be accepted. Being able to be artistic in their ways should be amazing, expressing in music videos or just music should be able to be loved and allowed.
