Too Gay to Handle

Mingle2 - What's My Blog Rated? Find Out Your Film Rating

I guess this shouldn't surprise me:

Online Dating

But the reason for the rating did: "This rating was determined based on the presence of the following words:
  • gay (20x)
  • death (3x)
  • hell (2x)
  • dead (1x)"
Scary, huh?

That is kind of scary, especially considering gay can mean "happy."

If I dedicate my blog to the Gay Nineties, can I get an NC-17 rating, too? *snerk*

I'm pretty sure no one uses "gay" to mean happy 20 times. One "we had a gay old time" is pretty much the limit. Apparently the creator of this rating system believes homosexuality, death, and eternal punishment for your sins are three topics no child should be permitted to broach, even in the company of a parent or guardian. How helpful that must be for kids who are gay or know someone else who is, know someone who dies, or go to church and hear about hell!
