What Is America's Obsession With Voyeurism?

What Is America's Obsession With Voyeurism?

It's been an increasing pain in my a$$ lately to come to screeching halts in the midst of my 70 MPH cruise down the highway. What could be the cause? Nothing, absolutely nothing. Cars bottleneck at the clean up of a fender-tap that happened hours ago but everyone has to look! Knock it off!

What about watching television? Can't I watch something after 3PM and not scramble for the remote because I don't care to explain the Victoria's Secret ad to my youngest daughter? Why must I constantly live in fear of what my come on when I take a bathroom break from watching something on ABCFamily even?

It has come to my conclusion that unless I "hop on the bandwagon" of agreeing with mainstream media and allow them to control what I put in my kids' brains then I will have to walk from here. That's a reference to me getting off the bandwagon.

What do you want to see? What are you looking for?!?!

Don't get me wrong, I enjoy the hell out of watching +AMC - The Walking Dead and even playing my +Sony PS3 games with the violence left on "extreme" but ONLY after the kids have gone to bed and not WITH them. Unfortunately, I'm the parent, the adult in this scenario. I wish I didn't have to wake up and go to work sometimes, I wish I wasn't responsible for paying the bills, but I'm not a child. "When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me." (1 Cor 13:11)

Don't worry about trying to get a good look at the car accident your passing; you won't want to see what you might see anyway. Pre-screen the images that you're about to let your kids dump into their brains; you'll be responsible for them later, especially when the drama they see played out on television effects their behavior later.

Grow up folks, drive straight and true on the path that is laid out before you. Don't look left or right and lead your families from the front! Fatherhood is no small task and it isn't to be taken lightly. Men, it is time...
