7. Censorship: A refusal to face reality.

 

Trying to force one's thoughts, feelings, or urges on others, while in denial regarding one's own disposition.
Censors often do not fully understand the situation they are trying to ban. Often contributing their own faulty interruption to words, pictures, events, etc. Few things are truly black and white, as the article in the OP shows.

"Save the children", is often the battle cry of the censor. Sorry, I can deal with the information my own children are exposed to, better than you. I don't need some censor's own hysteria in trying to dumb down the world around them, to save my kids from the reality of world that they will have to live in and cope with as adults. That is my job as their parent.
