Thoughts from my journal:
If a movie isn’t good for my children, what makes it good for me?
What makes an adult movie, an adult movie?
When did I become old enough for violence, foul language and sex scenes?
When did I “come of age?”
If I watch and they can’t,
Am I communicating that there is a different standard?
A standard for me and another one for them?
What am I telling them?
“I can handle it but you can’t
But one day you will
One day you will be old enough
One day you will open your eyes, ears and head
Like a garbage can
And let all that crap in
Just like me.”
Now THAT’S something to look forward to.
