I can't say I'm an expert on any of these issues, but it seems that people
are overlooking the fact that children are the targets of the speech.
While the movie rating system is voluntary, it is clearly in response to
government pressure. I'm interested in views on whether the fact that the
targets are children can justify greater restriction and whether the fact
that the speaker is the parent might counteract that justification.
