I completely agree with this, case in point my mom and my sister went to a record store when my sister was 11. My sister asked my mom if she could get a George Michael tape and my mom thinking nothing of it said yes. Well when my sister got home she busted the tape out and put it in the tape player and the song "I want your sex" came on. My mom flipped a lid and made my sister take back the tape and the clerk wouldnt give her a refund so my mom threw the tape in the guys face My sister of course spent the next 2 days crying about.

After that incident every tape or cd that any of us kids bought until we were 16, was inspected by her.



When I was in Jr. High, the banned record was the Rocky Horror soundtrack! We all had to hide it from our parents and my best friend had hers taken away by her mom LOL!

In my own experience...last year I took my 11 year old niece shopping for her birthday with a list that was approved by her mom...I forgot what CD I was going to buy her but I knew nothing about the band. The clerk at Tower was nice enough to tell me that it was highly inappropriate for a little girl and I made her put it back. She was mad of course but I told her that if her mom wanted her to have it, she could take her back and buy it but I wasn't going let her have it just to be the "cool aunt"

My sister disagreed with me and said it wasn't that bad but I figured if a 20 year old at Tower thought it was inapropriate, it more than likely was!

Just because someone at a record store says a CD's "inappropriate" doesn't necessarily mean that it's true, though. That's just their opinion. I'd hate it if someone who worked at a store told me I shouldn't buy an album because it might not be appropriate for my child or something. That's my decision to make, not theirs.

Also, adamswildhoney and BAW, LOL about the mishaps with music and parents! . I feel bad for your sister, adamswildhoney.

I've never had to worry about that in my household. My parents don't care what my sister and I listen to.

I can't believe 600,000 people bought the album in the first week.

Apart from that, I think this particular song is crap, but content-wise, I'm not bothered by it. I don't think that Britney's target audience has been 7-13 year olds for a LONG time. I mean, have you seen the videos from her previous album? She can sing about whatever she likes, it's not her job to monitor the morals of the world's youth.

I have to agree with joyfulgirl (I think she said this) - who learns about masturbation from their parents? Certainly not myself, my siblings, friends, cousins or anyone I know.

I just think that parents should be teaching kids about sex in general, not Britney Spears. That's all I was trying to say I don't know who her audience would be now-do older teenagers or people in their twenties buy her CDs or go to her concerts?

Yes I understand that it's not her job to monitor morals, but I do still believe she's a poor role model. She is valued for her looks and sex appeal above all other attributes (and sells that rather than emphasize other aspects of her talent, imho), and as far as I know she never went past the ninth grade. I'm not knocking her for that. Maybe she got her GED, I don't know. She is a very pretty girl and I'm sure she's a good hearted person as well.

Those are just my opinions, so shoot me

Good to see Britney finally taking matters into her own hands... well, so to speak.

I honestly can't imagine any good parent being concerned about whether or not Britney Spears is a good role model for their kids. I know my sister, who is a right-wing conservative Christian, lets her 9 year old daughter listen to Britney and she would laugh her butt off if I asked her whether or not she was concerned about Britney's influence. I respect your opinion but I really don't think you're giving kids enough credit. If a child is going to act out badly based on a pop singer's behavior or song lyrics, there are problems at home, not with the pop singer.

Yes, I understand that completely

No offense to you or anyone else, but I'm not that stupid
