Why Can't you say Gang Banged?

Why Can’t you Say Gang Banged?
I don’t get it. Is it really that suggestive a word? So I’m out surfing the web for a few fun songs and videos on a Friday Afternoon. Along the way someone sends me a link to a lurid s&m scene. Pretty cool. Another friend sends me a few of their home made Fetish vids…nice start. I watch my favorite rope maker rant. Read a little something from one of my favorite erotic writers but despite the distractions I’m still in the mood for something light hearted so I head on over to my search engine of choice and think to myself “Where do all the Porn Starts go?” So I find the ever clear video for Volvo Driving Soccer Mom. One of my all time favorite feel good tunes. Then again I like a healthy dose of sarcasm and Irony with my social commentary and need to buy another car so why not a Volvo.

Maybe I like the song because I can relate to the concept of a wild soul becoming a button down type at least on the surface. Maybe I like it because a lover of mine had a pet rat and Tracy holds a special place in my heart even all these years later.  I’ve kept the company of dancers, and then again there is the fact I did ride to high school in a Volvo my freshman year while my friends mom was getting her full out Swedish driving speed freak on. You really shouldn’t teach 14 year olds some things and threshold braking going in to corners probably is one of them.
But that’s not the point. The point is half way through the tune they bleeped out the word Gang Bang. WTF? Really 3 minutes ago I was watching a girl with a massive strap on do another moaning girl in the ass while calling her a slut but someone feels the need to censor the word gang bang from a music video?
So I attribute it to that particular version of the video. Wrong! I watch it on 4 video sites and everyone had the word bleeped. OK let’s review the imagery and words that were allowed to be heard.
It’s ok to say you had sex in the bathroom at the Prom, as long as it’s done in around about way. It’s Ok to show a young woman getting up and kissing her pet rat (I’ve seen that act live years ago it looks better on video) So I step away from this topic for a few days. After all I do go on my censorship rants from time to time. Enter a calm Monday morning I’m on my 8th cup of coffee and nearly functional.
Ironically I was reading an email from Diva’s English Teacher (Diva is my 16 year old daughter) when I decided to pick the topic back up. Why because this Semester she has to read the seminal classic on censorship Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury. While I tend to disagree with the other’s politics that used similar themes in recent times and even Mr. Bradbury’s politics in most cases none the less the book is relevant. Then D has too read a book from a list of banned books which was interesting to me in and of itself.  Odds are I won most of them because they were once banned.
Continuing on in the song you can have a threesome and have your own sister be one of the involved parties which potentially crosses a boundary taboo pretty much everywhere. Yes I am aware of the fact you can have a threesome with two sisters who do not have any physical contact with each other there for avoiding the previously mentioned introduction of the obscurely referenced taboo.
You can talk about getting busted for possessing and or using drug related paraphernalia, you can talk about being wild, rebellious, and perhaps even allude to being promiscuous by sleeping with a man out of wed lock which has been traditionally frowned upon. You can show soft core girl on girl action. Wax poetically about being a porn star turned boring blond suburban republican house wife. You can show in a very sexy manner the flirtatious touching of a bump and grind lap dance, fuck me pumps, and the excessively dangerous activity of meeting a man from the strip club in a dark alley after work.
Not one condom was shown when the illusion of non monogamous sex was being engaged in. Still they censored the word gang banged? What is wrong with a good old fashion gang bang as long as everyone involved is a willing participant? Do I think any of the things I pointed out should be censored? Of course not. The only thing I think should have been removed from the video was the MILF type in the pink terry cloth sweat suit. It just sends the wrong message and pinky terry cloth offends me. And there you have it folks the beauty of idiots who censor things, what is offensive to some things like the word gang bang don’t cause others to even blink and eye.
No I’m off to start a new organization NA – ASS the National Association- Against Sweat Suits. My platform is simple if you are hot and not going to or from the gym you should be prohibited by both civil and divine law from treating athletic apparel as everyday clothing items.
I think for the first fundraiser I’ll host a gang bang broadcast live over the internet.
