  • They aren't skipping words, they are just censoring out offensive or inappropriate words!
  • Mom, why is the music skipping words, is the speaker broken?
  • I can tell you are still curious about censorship, so if you were wondering... Censorship is used so young kids like you aren't exposed to inappropriate and triggering lyrics that promote dangerous activities
  • Exactly, for your own innocence and safety
  • So you are just trying to keep me safe from music that suggests illegal behavior and political opinions
  • Mom! Look! On the TV it's talking about the problems with modern day song lyrics She says that often songs reference explicatory language and imply inaprotie actions that kids shouldn't listen too.
  • What did I tell you!!
  • Thanks for teaching me so much today about censorship! I cant wait to tell my teacher tomorrow.

  • Guess what I learned yesterday! There is something called censorship where certain things are blocked out of the publics hearing to avoid exposing kids to explicit language or encourage illegal acts!
