Unnecessary Censorships vs Culture Norms & Media

Seems like in every culture there are ways that we are influenced like censorships or censoring.

In each culture, we are brought up in a certain way and uniquely different. For example, some are brought up in a fast-paced environment, religious stand point, minimalistic, independently, group efforts, and etc.

For example, nudity. Nudity is an al naturale part of life and we deal with it on an everyday part of life. But when it comes to the tv or some media news outlets, the intimate areas of the body maybe blurred out depending on where you are at in the world. But, why be censored out when it’s an al naturale part of the human race? So, would it be an unnecessary censorship across all cultures?

Another example is foul language. Foul language maybe a part of the everyday talk for some. But why censor all foul language especially when it comes to media? Is it really that offensive? Maybe for some I suppose….

The last example I have would be the subject of the deceased. For example if the deceased have died in some horrific instance and the media would most likely not show the pictures/videos, and/or blacken or fuzz out the worst parts of the photo or video. But death is a natural thing. But, things maybe to upsetting to see, the loved ones of the deceased may not want the information leaked and want the person to be remembered in a better manner, and/or the “culture norms” of that country. Yea, not all deaths are horrific but some can be more on the peaceful side.

So, what else would you include in the unnecessary censorship?
