What songs aren't about sex these days? All of the charts stuff features sexualised artists appealing to the appetites of younger males and vice versa. Sex in other words sells sadly. None of it is powerful stuff either. It is stuff that encourages violence such as rape etc...

what? sex in music encourages violence related rape?

Next you are going to tell me that listening to Marilyn Manson and playing Call of Duty is going to encourage kids to go shoot up their high school.

I think it gives people the wrong idea, all the woman are sexualised and almost treated like objects. Some people in extreme cases do take it seriously. Yes, Call of Duty has been shown to make people do things like that before. There is no doubt things like music videos have an influence on the behaviour of people, like all forms of media do.

yeah but the responsibility of the behavior falls back to the individual not the form of media for producing something creative.

You have to hold the person responsible for their actions not the artist for creating art that may or may not have an influence on people.

Imagine being the woman that inspired these songs :/

Edit: the second uses 'ing' when it should be 'ed' after the f word verb

Yes, it does but the media still have a responsibility to protect their audience, especially the younger audience that is the music industry (look at the sexualisation of Rihanna in the X Factor final) and they have to keep with in strict guidelines, i.e. broadcasters through Ofcom, newspapers through the PCC etc... they also have moral responsibilities.

The general public are influenced by the media, i.e. the Bridgend suicides were thought to be triggered by the glamorisation of suicide.

They have all of those rating boards in place to "protect" their audience even though I feel that it's the parent's job and responsibility to monitor what their child is listening to and watching not to pawn it off on other organizations to decide what's best for their own child.

Yeah it is, but that's tougher when these programmes are on before the watershed. They cant always be around. Putting the onus on the viewer is lazy imo anyway.
