The pornography of violence available to 12 year olds

In the UK there has been and still is a lot of chatter and angst concerning the supposed violence of adult spanking films, made by adults, featuring adults watched by adults who can screen this from their kids

The latest Hunger Games film is out and available for your 12 years old child to go and watch. Well it’s just a bit of fun isn’t it or it could be as described by one of the films promoters “very violent” and he seemed happy that young kids can see this trash and indeed seemed to glory in it, but then he would wouldn’t he. Why is he happy, well it could be because the first instalment grossed £5m in the opening week end and this one is expecting to do better.

Here is the difference, this is violence, see below, this is made by adults, featuring kids, I class young teens as kids, and it’s designed to be watched by kids. Now am I living in some sort of parallel universe, is it acceptable for our kids to see the sort of violence portrayed in the most graphic way, violence that features the slaughtering of kids by other kids, necks broken, death by all manner of vile implements of war and torture.

This comes out in the same month as a group of very sick, misguided young people slaughtered innocents in the streets of Paris. What do we expect when it is open for kids in the UK to go along to their local Odeon and see mass carnage on the streets, see that it is OK to watch, it must be, mummy lets me see it! For some this will undoubtedly arouse thoughts of violence in their still forming minds. It’s ironic that in the UK the Odeon are showing this when their name is synonymous with entertainment and it was said that its founder Oscar Deutsch Entertains Our Nation. I wonder what this Victorian gentleman would think about this offering!

As I say, maybe I am in the parallel universe and it’s OK these days for kids to see such mind bending crap, make no mistake they do want to see it and will be pestering parents to let them go and see it. Why not do your kids a favour and say NO!
Is there any correlation with consensual spanking between adults and filming it for the entertainment of other adults. Answers please.

We could give you a link to  a trailer but why spread the evil word.


Parents need to know that although the bestselling Hunger Games books are enormously popular with tweens, there’s a clear distinction between reading about violence and seeing it portrayed on screen. Developmentally, the 10- to 12-year-olds who’ve read the book may find the movie’s visceral, sometimes bloody teen-on-teen violence upsetting — especially the brutal scene that opens the Games, in which several teens are slaughtered by their fellow contestants. Even young teens need to be mature enough to deal with the 20+ deaths in The Hunger Games; characters are viciously dispatched with various weapons — including spears, arrows, and swords — as well as by having their necks broken, their skulls cracked, and their bodies ravaged by carnivorous and poisonous creatures.

this movie might be the most violent young-adult movie ever made. While all of the previous “Hunger Games” films are violent, “Mockingjay, Part 2” pushes PG-13 boundaries

It’s violent and gory – so should under-12s see new Hunger Games movie? Critics attack film for glamorising violence. Viewers witness a man being whipped by soldiers and a public execution. With a public execution, a violent beating and frenzied animals, it hardly sounds like ideal entertainment for children.

But film censors appear to think otherwise – granting The Hunger Games: Catching Fire a 12A rating, which means it can be seen by under-12s if they are with an adult. Yesterday, critics attacked those behind the film for glamorising violence and exposing the young target audience to ‘unnecessarily graphic’ scenes.
