2008-09-07 23:14:00 Mr Jack Driscoll—I would like to ask, if possible, to curb "sexually oriented businesses" In 2001, the National Obscenity Law Center (NOLC),a projedt of Morality in Media, launched the Safe States and Cities Project to help communities to curb problems associated with "sexually oriented businesses". You can contact the NOLC at (212) 870-3232 —CharleenBellavia
2008-09-07 23:42:02 Mr. Driscoll,
I'll agree that Cosmopolitan and similar magazines, as well as much advertising, are problematic, but not because they're sexual in nature. Rather, it's because they're pseudo-sexual. Frank discussion about human sexuality does a lot of good. Obviously, you have to frame it for the age group (young kids need to learn about the sexes, relationships and gender, not sexual acts, for example). Hiding sexuality, or worse still, flaunting it while pretending not to, just sends mixed messages to children and encourages them to explore sexual behavior before they are emotionally and physically ready for relationships, let alone sexuality.
As for so-called problems, can you identify any problems on Brighton-Henrietta Townline Road, Route 104 (Ontario Video & News), or in Village Gate? Obviously, the "problem" is not the businesses themselves or the clientele they attract. Leave these businesses, which quietly go about being profitable additions to the community, alone. Unless you're interested in cracking down on shampoo commercials, focus on real issues, like the mess that is COMIDA, the county budget and the phenomenon of hopscotching stores between streets, neighborhoods and communities.
Thank you. —DaveMahon
