It's funny, I can watch a lot of movies with loads of blood and gore, but when the blood and gore seems like it's there as the main feature and not just an element of the script, that'…

I have no problems with realistic "gore" in movies/tv shows. I've never had an issue with blood or wounds or any of that, so those things don't really bother me. I understand how you feel, though. My husband gets very queasy at the site of blood or wounds. I do hate movies/tv shows that have more gore and blood than necessary or that depict injuries in unrealistic ways. It's just because I feel like actual injuries that can be sustained are gory enough, and the extra blood and guts is just useless, in my opinion.

I choose not to watch scary/suspenseful movies and shows, though, because I already have very vivid nightmares almost every night so I feel like I don't need to add more ideas to my already warped brain. Also, I just hate stress and being emotional, so I avoid anything that will induce those feelings, including sad movies and shows.

This response usually upsets those who are trying to convince me to watch shows like The Walking Dead.

I can't stand the Saw movies. You see...I have a fear of bullshit ;p

Seriously though I just don't like those pointless gory films. Makes me squeamish.

Finally got around to reading this one--a reasonable overview. Don't think I can wade through the comments tho!

I would like to remark however on the notion (not the author's, but the side she's summarizing) that "false reports are exceedingly rare." What is "exceedingly rare"? In birdwatching, it means one thing--as in give up hope, bub, you ain't gonna see it--but here it refers to 2-8% (that's the estimate of people who have studied the data). This is almost exactly the same range for the LGBT population of the United States, which as far as I know is never termed "exceedingly rare"!

I don't care if the conversation started or it doesn't start. Ladies stop protesting to people who don't give a shit about you, the politician parasite only cares about is money and to keep you distracted. Distracted from what?, from you learning how to defend yourself, via your arms and legs, or with a gun. Stop being a victim and start learning how to survive, because that's what we were created for.

These are the horror stories of guns.the police can't even protect the people no more.i been in many situtions where I needed a gun and did not have where a civilian could have saved a life .the libral laws in my state make it almost impossible to obtain a gun or even a bebe gun. It don't matter now for me because I am trained and able to own and protect myself because of the second amendment my constitutional people who read this who are victims of gun violence I am truly sorry for your loss. As I have lost family and friends to it.but taking guns away from law abiding citizens will hurt our country .i am not a gun nut I am a american .if you don't believe me ask the people of Australia the gun ban is crippling it's good people to criminals and they are spreading he word Don't let the gov take your guns .now the criminals know no one owns a gun and house invasions are tripled ..if we can't even protect our borders what makes you think we can get the guns out of the criminals hands...

Sometimes it does not help the gun control lobby when they
are ill informed. For instance " a bill to legalize silencers". Lets
take a step back and talk about what a "Silencer" really is. It is
not the long tubular device you see on television, that makes firearms sound
like a blowgun with a minuscule (thup). In actuality, they are safety devices.
They do not silence a firearm discharge, they reduce the decibels to
non-harmful, or lessen the harmfulness of the sound when firearms are discharged.
These people claim, they do not
have a problem with self defense, so for the purpose of discussion, I will take
them at their word. Discharging a firearm in a car, or in a small room in a
house (especially with tile floors), could cause permanent hearing
loss/impairment at the decibel level many common firearms emit.

There is serious dis-ingenuousness when the term "Gun
Safety" is thrown around by these folks, and they turn around and try to enact legislation to make guns more dangerous.
