Why nudity and swearing is banned on American TV but gore isn't.
If it a kid hears a swear word on TV, the kid might swear themselves. But if the kid plays a violent video game like Call of Duty, 99% of the kids don't pick up a real gun and shoot someone.
Most people won't experience gore in our life time. So it remains a fantasy and something you only see in the movies or on TV. But swearing and nudity is something almost everyone will experience in their life time. It seperates between reality and fantasy.
When you watch a movie and it shows a breast, that is a real breast. But if you see someones head get chopped off, it is special effects and we know that.
Real gore is censored for children and is considered very explicit. A real picture of someones head chopped off is considered more explicit than a picture of breasts.
