Censorship - What Happened America?

So I am watching TV and I once again can't figure out why some things are censored and others are not. First let me preface this blog entry with a BIG disclaimer. I am not giving a critique of any content of shows or movies I might mention here. I am merely making an observation, NOT a judgement.

First, I was watching the Discovery channel and they have a show about dirty jobs that people have to do. They went to a stud farm to show how they collect sperm from stud show horses. They basically make the stud get excited by walking the brood mare around in front of him. The stud becomes erect and they guide the stud up on a pommel horse (a fake horse) and a vetinarian takes a fake horse vagina and sticks it on the studs penis and collects the ejaculation. So in the show the stud horse's penis is blurred out (censored). Why? this is a medical procedure. They show the fake vagina, they then show the vet do a artificial insemination by sticking her entire arm in the brood mares real vagina (and I am talking up close and personal). Why was that not edited or blurred out like the penis?

Second, Turner Broadcast Systems (TBS) always shows all kinds of movies and they are HACKED to peices after profanity like the words "Hell" "Damn" and "Ass" are chopped out. However TBS is airing a very provocative promotion for The Real Gilligan's Island where "Ginger" and "Mary Ann" look-a-likes smash cream pies on each other and get into a cat fight with FULL on shots of cleavage, butt and crouch all smeared with cream pies while the "Skipper" and "Gilligan" look on with binoculars. I don't understand the double standard that is being played out here. Maybe somebody could shed some light on this for me?

I rarely watch television because of the hipocracy that is television. I worked for one of the big three networks for several years and finally had to leave when Reality TV was born. What a farce that is. Because of "Non-disclosure" agreements that employees are forced to sign I can not talk about the projects I worked on, but let me assure you Reality TV is COMPLETELY scripted. But I digress.

I am against censoreship. It erodes our constitutional right to express ourselves. I have experienced first hand and it is not a feeling I want to ever experience again.

Would LOVE to hear from others about this.
Peace all

Yep, they seriously blurred out the erect Male private part but they gave a full on close up view of the female horses vagina and DID NOT blur it out. Explain that one to me...???

sorry if this offends anyone... but i remember very clearly being in biology class in high school and one of the first penises i ever saw was that of an elephant in a video they showed us. it was incredibly huge and sent my thoughts on a rampage. i ended up going home after school and rubbed my clit fantasizing about someone fucking me with an elephant-sized dick.

my point is this: if they don't blur these things out when we are in a class, an educational atmosphere....what's the difference when we see it on tv?

atm some of my blog entries are censored aka not published since half a week - for reasons i cant see. Search for 'censorship' in the blog search does reveal numerous entries - no idea how many more don't pop up because they are censored.
