I'm going to be honest with you guys. I think it's kind of retarded to be perfectly OK watching things like bullet hits shattering heads into tiny fragments, hands shoved into garbage disposals, victims being autopsied on crime labs, TV shows about serial killers, and TV shows about sexual predators/killers, all the while being squemish about the color of blood.
If you you have desensitized yourself into thinking these other things are acceptable entertainment on television (I personally don't find them entertaining), why not go all-in? Why let a little red turn your stomach? Maybe the color red is natures way of telling you that those things aren't good, and you shouldn't be finding them entertaining. Just sayin...
The phrase 'don't want the violence of TV to hit too close to home' is just sad. It should hit close to home. It's supposed to remind you that violence isn't good or acceptable.
