I'm Racier Than I Thought

I try so hard to keep things clean and virtuous around Kittywampus, and here's my reward:

OnePlusYou Quizzes and Widgets

Supposedly I got the NC-17 "based on the presence of the following words":

* sex (7x)
* death (4x)
* shit (2x)
* abortion (1x)

Is it violent death? Unh-uh. Is it sexy sex? Sadly, no! I haven't even dropped an F-bomb in a while, much less used any of George Carlin's seven words you can't say on the air. A little mild poop talk shouldn't rate worse than a PG-13.

And since when is "schmabortion" taboo?

Dagnabit, I'd like to know what rating I'd get if I actually set out to write a naughty blog. Is there still an X rating beyond the pale of the NC-17?

These things are so fun! I got an R rating for: sex (7x) rape (4x) abortion (3x) bitch (2x) death (1x)

So, extrapolating from your rating, I think we can conclude that "shit" is more offensive than "rape" on this scale?

I do get a kick out of these silly things, too, even though they are *really* dumb sometimes.

Well, much to my surprise, I received a "G" rating despite mentioning violence (campus shootings), contraception, and STDs. Guess I should put in more swears.

Smirking Cat said...

I am PG because I use the words bitch and bastard. Yep, seems to be the swears that get ya.

Sungold said...

Heather, how 'bout you put in some lovely *pictures* of those STDs? Eek. That ought to merit at least a PG-13. Then again, they might be part of abstinence-only education, and as such, aimed at the pre-K audience on up!

Smirking Cat, your potty talk is pretty mild - but so is mine! In real life I can be *much* saltier than on my blog, but I temper it a bit here because some of my students sometimes drop by, and also because I wouldn't want to embarrass my mama if she ever read it.

That's absolutely hilarious!

Sungold said...

It would be funnier if it weren't partly *true.* Ack.

I have no idea what I'm rated? I say congrats on your NC 17, it makes me feel so much more adult for reading it.

Sungold said...

Hi Molly - great to "see" you. I've kept up with posting but have also been really pressed for time, so haven't gotten round to other people's blogs - and wow, has a lot been happening for you!

Anyway, to check your rating, you click on my NC-17 rating box and then you'll get a screen where you enter the URL of your blog. I did that for you and guess what - you came up with a G rating.

I have the recipe, apparently, if you want a more adult rating. (Sigh. I think the damn thing read my *mind* and not my blog - that would make more sense!)

Good grief. I've never seen this before. Turns out, I'm NC-17 too! That's for semen (13x--I'm going to count because I doubt this), dead (1x--that means no dead letter office, dead quiet, deadheads or dead ends, people!) and bastards (2x). S. Cat, how were you able to get bastard in and keep your PG? I guess you only used it once. At least they didn't call me out on douchebag. Do you think a cat could say "pussy" and get away with it? Or would that move me into the land of "R"?

Sungold said...

Henry, you shouldn't be shocked at your rating: I've seen your blog, and it's brimming pictures of naked pussy! (And quite pretty pussies they are.)

Combine that with 13x semen, and you're probably illegal in some jurisdictions.
