Do you change the channel on television, or radio, or social media when they give a warning message? (Possibly NSFW)

For graphic content?

I do now and most of my anxiety afterwards is gone. Do you?

Nope, I love graphic content. Horror movies….yessss.

I know some music has ratings, but do they actually warn you on the radio station? or do they just not play that music?

I research the movie or whatever. If I like the plot, I might go ahead and watch it anyway.

I figure the warnings are for families with kids.

No. Usually the warnings are BS. I don’t watch TV with channels. The things that bug me on radio, they don’t warn about (e.g. rural “Christian” radio).

No, I just shout “Hey kids, wanna see something cool?”

Entropy's avatar

Nope. Those warnings are just for legal cover.

Never but my favorite warning is ‘historical smoking.’

RayaHope's avatar

If it’s unexpected I will tend to get a little apprehensive and kinda an “on guard” sense about me. It also depends on what the rating is.

@all I mean when watching the news. I turn the channel for 2 minutes after a warning from the news anchor.

smudges's avatar

Well that’s a different question.

I rarely watch news, but yes, I would.

KNOWITALL's avatar

@RedDeerGuy1 I always watch news item’s like the George Floyd video’s. I feel obligated to educate myself by watching.

I only change the channel if the warning isn’t strong enough.

If the warning is something like, “Not recommended for children under 13”, then I’ll search for a channel with a stronger warning like, “Horribly disgusting content; not recommended for anyone!”. ;p
