I know every one has alot more heavy topics on there mind what with the election just 12 days away but I thought I'd post a little insignificant rant on something else

well since its halloween CN decided to air the halloween special from a show they haven't premeried yet.

The show is called 6Teen it's aparently about a group of teen stereotypes who have nothing better to do then hang out in there massive mall. The halloween ep was called "Dude of the dead" and followed a zombie outbreak in said mall.

the show was rather bad in and of itself. I really should have watched saw 2 again instead. but one scene in the show realy annoyed me.

In one scene one of the male chars was bragging about how he'd gotten a job in "nearly naked" the lingerie shop and how there was a peep hole in the dressing rooms. When he was asked why he's the only guy who worked there since it would seem every teen would be queuing up for a job there he replied.

"Every guy in the mall has applied but they usualy don't hire guys."
"Then how did you get a job."
"Oh I told them I was gay"

but cartoon network wussed out and edited the word gay out... and they did it badly they changed it to "Famous" Which doesn;t make sense. They did it again later on. When a zombie was attacking the guy who was looking through the peep hole, two of the other male chars ran in only to be stopped by a femal clerk.

"You can't go in there"
"No it's okay we're "Famous"."
The guy turns to his buddy
"I'll explain later"

Come on thats just cowardice, I mean it's an animated series aimed at older viewers and on rather late at night. In anouther show from the same people that CN has aired "total drama island" they have allowed both male and female nudity, blurred of course, but the word gay is to harsh? jeeze man grow a freaking spine

Cartoon Network does edits like this all the time to avoid "offending" anyone. They did it with the premiere episode of Total Drama Island. In the original, when the campers are told that they have to use a communal bathroom, the ditz Lindsay says "Communal? But I'm not Catholic." And is then told that she's thinking of communion. When they aired it here, they had to change it to "I'm confused." Not to mention all the times they cut out the word "crap". And the beef testicles from the Fear-Factor eating challenge... yeah, CN chickens out a lot.

It's worse when they have to redo anime for a more youthful audience. The ways they try to censor out cigarettes, guns, religious symbols and the like is ludicrous at times.

that's not CN, that's 4Kids that does that.


BunnyBoy I agree that it's annoying to me (as my own believes what suitable for children is closer to japan's than the US's)  but the main reason why I had to asked is, it would be a bigger deal if [AS] did it than if CN does it

Hey, they still have the best show on TV, Minoriteam.

In order to avoid offending anyone with that, it would just have to be a blank screen.

(The actual best show on TV is probably Dexter or Bones)

So it's OK to have an episode that deals with kids being peeping toms, but not OK to say the word "gay"?

Somebody get a feminist army on these creeps.
