Not for Children Under 13

I found this over at My Utopia:

Online Dating


According to the blog-rating, I'm PG-13 because of the occurrences of "knife" (x3), "bitch" (x2) and "steal" (x1). In case you are wondering (as I did, I clearly remembered using "bitch" and "knife"), the "steal" was in reference to homeless people stealing pet food bowls. A concept you obviously wouldn't want you pre-teen to be exposed to. Parents, beware of your kids reading about my scandalous lifestyle!

I was R because I said crap. If anything isn't that a PG version of something far worse (I don't want to write it for fear of scaring young kids).

You were rated R from "crap"? Since when is "crap" worse than "bitch"?

mom said...

a pg13 rating? you're smart, funny, bright, attractive, but when you get mad you have the mouth of a truck driver, how has this not come through on your blog?

I know it is all just too funny!

Mine was somehow rated "G". What about all the times I say "To Hell With Georgia", or "damn", or "crap"? I think that thing has a lousy search algorithm!

I rated mine and got a G because "no bad words were found" although I'm sure I've slipped a few in there from time to time.

Just for curiousity sake, I rated your blog, and they came up with an R rating, lol, too funny.

magnetbabe said...

I think it rates just the current page, so if you have bad words in your archive it won't find them. I think my rating must have gone up to R because I keep repeating the bad words it found!

I was NC-17. Words like "crap" and "prick." None of the usual suspects, somehow.

I think these are a bit off. Of course, in reality, these movie ratings are nearly arbitrary and are done in secret.

magnetbabe said...

"nearly" being the key word. While the ratings don't correspond to the magnitude and frequency of "adult content", they are carefully chosen to bring in revenue...

That's hysterical! I'm going to check mine out. Technology amazes me.

PG-13 for saying death 5 times and dead 2x. God, I'm macabre, but I swore also. It wasn't mentioned.
