I've started reporting EVERY SINGLE offensive emblem & here's why u should 2

When this game first came out, dolphins with human male anatomy was annoying, but somewhat under control.

These days every other emblem has something to do with anatomical features of men and/or are racist and homophobic in nature.

My 5 year old son watches me play for a couple of hours everyday before bed. He asks what those things are and I have a hard time explaining some of them.

I know that this is a game intended for "Mature Adults", but let us be honest. Children are present. And because of that we need to be the best custodians of our environment we can be and keep it clean.

If we can't do this together, younger people, like my son, will have to go back to watching cartoons - and I really don't want to raise a "brony"

You let your 5 year old son watch you gun down tons of soldiers before bed every single night?

Children don't have to be present. In my house we have things called doors, you should look into them.

On a serious note, I think censorship is wrong on principle. Emblems are a creative medium of expression, and while the service obviously has its own terms and conditions and enables users to censor each other, that doesn't mean they have to. You can always just look the other way instead of controlling what other people choose to create.

Besides, if your kid's 5, he is probably more than capable of finding porn on the internet already, or has friends who know how to. That's just the age we live in. It's not hard to type "boobs" into google.

Just wait until the people get in here talking about how horrible you are for letting your 5 year old watch you play. Or how it's an adult game. The thing is that this is not an adult game. It is a mature game. If this game featured sex acts like you see in some of these emblems it would be rated AO. I would not play an AO game in front of my 9 year old daughter. I do let her watch me play COD though because there is no dismemberment, guts, exploding bodies or anything. Only some blood. This isn't a game about sex, rape, swastikas and racial slurs. These things have no place in this game. That is why I report every emblem that features those things.

I don't even look at people's emblems so it has never bothered me at all. Nor would it, the game is rated M for mature. No matter how much people want it to be E for everyone, this is a game that is intended for 17 and over gamers. I don't have children, but if I did I would still allow them to play from the age of 10 and up. If you think your kid isn't seeing the same crap at school everyday then your head is up your anatomical rear end

Yeah, I see this as cartoon violence. He sees worse watching MTV in my opinion. But the nasty, perverted things some people use as their emblems... lol... some people need some Jesus in their life, you know?

As a parent I would suggest maybe instead of spending your time with your 5 year old by letting him sit there and watching you play, maybe shut the video game off and play with your 5 year old and play with your boy. When he goes to bed, then play your video games- also, the emblems really aren't noticeable when your playing the game, and when your in the lobbies you really don't need to scroll over them if you have children present. I'm with the other guy, really don't dig censorship much as virtually everything is offensive to somebody out there, where do you draw the line???

they pop up every time you shoot somebody. On topic it would be nice to have a Block user emblems option.
