    would love to know what the booing and hissing people get out of that? Does it make one feel better? Does it show designers their displeasure in the corps design choice? Does it make people think their behavior will change anything? Is there really a point? AS a member on the field listening and watching this behavior, does it make one feel superior? Trying to understand and clearly, I don't I personally think silence, or not watching something I don't like speaks much louder than hissy fits which aren't funny or effective. JMO

    I think you're right about today's times and how careful we need to be in all aspects ( I have my own opinions on that but thats another topic ) I do get what your point is. I often some times wonder, take 50 shades for Gray...please let's not debate that movie )..lol..at one point I think it was doing everything you said to women..after watching it and seeing the sequel or even by the end of the movie, I thought OMG this woman is the one in charge and playing this guy...just an opinion

    Youre also assuming on the Eve thing that everyone even believes the story . Maybe that doesn't matter, maybe it does..just a thought. Maybe it's just about the premise of the story , believed or not

    I think we do need to be careful about how we use this word promiscuous imo. There was a time if a girl even approached a guy she was considered promiscuous. If a woman wore certain clothing, she was considered promiscuous, If she was an unwed mother, she was considered promiscuous... Which to me were all quite silly IMO. I do find it priceless that other posters /poster ( not you)( was pointing out in their opinion ( which is fine ) all the evils of these types of shows YET defended an alleged predator and possible rapist. THAT for them was to be given the benefit of the doubt BUT slammed the hammer down on corps shows.....PRICELESS! I think your stance and opinion was a bit easier to understand if one agrees or not.

    this does not mean tasteful limits should not be a factor.

    It wasn't my fav show BUT I did not see it in the text you may have. There was a very controversial show in WGI way back in the early 2000s A world class guard doing the Kama Sutra. It was one of my Fav shows and thousands who saw it seemed to agree. Were there a few who felt different? sure a few Mom's I guess BUT for the most part a winner, and it was. I could have been offended by that as well ( but wasn't ) BUT I can be as offended by political statements or religious statements also.

    There are limits on everything. One can be offended by what you say for sure as well as something political or religious or sensual or or or or. In most cases ( most ) will walk that line, some will step over. The threshold for what constitutes over the line should be obvious BUT I think with some opinions can vary drastically.

    For me ( just me ) There are tons of political shows over the years in WGI. Personally many I can't stand, especially for those who chose to do them year after year after year. That does not mean I can't find many other qualities in that very show from the MMs talent, to the design process etc etc One can choose to IMO look at it in 1 dimension OR look at the multi-facets of a program.

    You are making the assumption that the majority of people do not enjoy what is being presented. Like with everything and in every era, everyone will not like everything presented.

    Well maybe it's just me BUT to me, booing and hissing is just plain childish. If the book of Mormon was performing in a non-friendly place, why go. In drum corps, you have a choice to go or not or with several corps in a show go get a hot dog. Designers do not always get it right, that's for sure BUT we do have a choice without reverting to IMO childish, nonproductive, combative behavior.

    just the over the top, arm chair authorities. For the most part they respect . Respect is earned on both ends. Not a given. Just like some have said, IF a show is not to someones pleasing people can respond BUT the other side of that coin is A PUSH BACK can and should be expected.
