Butts on tv

So why is it acceptable to show a guy's ass on tv, but not a chick's?

I was watching workoholics, and one of the dudes streaks on a football field, and his junk is blurred but not his ass. Not even a little bit.

And the Kroll show comes up, and he shows HIS ass TOO!

Also, just about every cartoon i've ever seen shows the main male character naked at least once, with their ass fully drawn and shit.

Why so much man-ass? Why is it not acceptable to see lady bootay?

discuss

I've noticed in sitcoms sometimes have a scene where a male character's junk is showing (Eric in That 70s Show and Waldon in Two and a Half Men come to mind). They obviously censor them, but there are never scenes with women exposed in sitcoms that I watch.

Because TV is ******ed when it comes to censorship.

Can say ass, not asshole. Can say Shit, not ****. Show man ass and man-tits, NOTHING of a female, however. That's obscene!

EDIT: Ironic that "R.e.t.a.r.d.e.d" is censored here, but I can say shit shit shit ass tits all I want.

I have too, but usually on shows rated R or whatever. The thing I want to know is why buttocks are being shown in kids shows and shit?

Because no one wants to see man ass. its more a thing of humour like in the streaking incident that'd be used for laughs or seen as a moment of embarrassment for the character. a female's ass on the other hand, becomes sexual because women our divine, lushous creatures peaking at beauty from the back view, that every guy wants to see because of there shapely figure

Most women on TV have the shape and size of 13 year olds. Clearly they can't show their ass because of paedophelia.

No it isn't. It's just a word that people have decided is offensive.

re·tard·ed
/riˈtärdid/
Adjective
Less advanced, esp. mentally, than is usual for one's age.

That's a slur? People have used it as a derogatory word for people with mental disabilities, but the true meaning of the word is not derogitory in any way. Kids with autism, cerebral palsy, etc. are ******ed by definition. Society has just deemed the word as bad, and we don't use it. There's nothing wrong with the word in a respectful context.

Not a slur.
