Baby Nipples a Major Distraction


When TV Asahi decided that baby nipples are going to cause major distraction to their TV program, cause traffic jams and maybe human jams, I think it's making us look at the baby nipple pasties even more than usual.


Over at Japan, 5 May is a national holiday for kids, called Children's Day. TV Asahi thought it would be nice to air a program highlighting the life of a married couple who are raising 4 adorable babies, or what the linguistically people like to say, a set of quadruplets. However, TV Asahi feel that some sort of modesty should be reserved for babies as well and decide to take matters into their hands to censor nudity at it's "discretion".


During a particular segment where the babies were given their mandatory baths, as do babies all over the world need to, TV Asahi decided to add in baby-chicks as temporary nipple pasties for all the babies. I mean, personally, I don't mind baby nipples but I draw the line at adult nipples since it's way over the top for normal humans to think about. TV Asahi thought that by censoring baby nipples, viewers would be less focused on the anatomy in question. However, it seems that viewers are even much more focused on that part of the babies anatomy instead. Or in other words, the digital baby nipple pasties are the highlight of the TV show instead of the actual program in question.


On the other hand, 7pm is probably the time when most families in Japan gather together either for dinner or watch some family TV program post-dinner and it might be best to spare some young minds from being corrupted with baby nipples O_o


Although I am much more concerned on another issue: When these 4 babies grow up into teenagers, for example, and found old videos of themselves as babies on national television with those digital pasties, what would they think though? Would it be a case of "Aww.. that's so sweet" or "Ack! What were those television people thinking?"

  1. The biggest problem seems to be that while most people see nothing prurient about a baby wearing nothing but a diaper and a smile, there are perverted people out there. In trying to protect children from being exploited by them, sometimes someone goes overboard in the other direction.

    1. Yep. Those digital pasties aren't really helping, to be honest.

  3. Last Saturday we ate in a restaurant with booths that diners can close. All diners kept their curtains closed except this couple sitting on the side by side. Guess what? Each time the waiter opened their curtain to attend to them, we could not help but peek. We were imagining what they're doing that they have to close the drapes.

  4. I think our entire world has gone so mad about being politically correct unless someone wants to shove their agenda at you! Then you are a bigot, hateful human being and they are put upon! My goodness, innocent babies, we all should have the common sense to protect them but seeing them in a diaper and a smile as messymimi said gets too much media coverage. Very interesting topic you have covered nicely here. ENjoy a great week and thank you for sharing. xo

    1. Oh well, I thought it was funny that TV Asahi thought that they should let babies have some sort of modesty. But the reactions on Twitter suggests otherwise though. And I do agree with what you said, it's just a baby in diapers with an innocent smile, but because of political correctness, something as innocent and precious as this gets unwanted attention instead.
