“Yes, until 10 p.m. The younger kids will be in bed by 10 p.m. Young children deserve protection, ages 5 to 15. They’re really too young for that. Let kids have their childhood. At 16, they’re in high school, and don’t need to be protected.”

“There should be no gender-based restrictions. That would be blatantly dis-criminatory. Actually, I think same-sex affection is a good thing on television. It normalizes the LGBT community, and helps reduce bullying.”

“Only to the extent that hetero-sexuals are restricted. Time regulations are fine if they’re applied across the board. But sex is sex. Gay sex isn’t more offensive than straight sex. Making arbitrary distinctions would be going down a slippery slope.”

“Dry humping is too much for kids, regardless of gay or straight. But kissing is not that big of a deal. There shouldn’t be any restrictions on TV for kissing. Kids of any age can be exposed to that. If they’re confused, they can ask their parents.”
