The moral standard of America is slowly decreasing. You-tube has had a standard to not allow nudity on any of their videos up until this. Justin Timberlake’s music videos have been a bit provocative, but his new music video entitled, “Tunnel Vision” has taken provocative to a whole new level. The music video was posted with full female nudity on YouTube. It was taken down, but then put back up with an agreement that you are about to encounter “explicit material.” The video received so many views that it was not worth taking it down for YouTube.
Google says that “this video is an exception to their not allowing nudity policy.” A Google spokesperson says that “they make exceptions for videos such as this when they are presented in an educational, documentary, or artistic context.”
Way to go Google! You have just lowered your standards for the world. You also have set a brand new standard that the perversion of the world is okay if claimed to be artistic.
What message are we sending to our kids? Parents, this should challenge you to be aware of the music and videos that your student is allowed to watch.
