* The main reason why WebVideo/{{PhantomStrider}} did not include ''WesternAnimation/WhereTheDeadGoToDie'' in his [[https://youtu.be/9J0vXvrdSc4 Top 10 Worst Animated Movies]] video, considering that he only watched the first ten minutes of the film. He said that he would never forgive himself if a child looked that film up because he mentioned it.

* The "bathroom bills" that several [[DeepSouth southern US states]] have been enacting, that require people to use restrooms and locker rooms that match their birth sex, are ostensibly done in the name of protecting women and children from sexual predators claiming to be transgender in light of trans visibility over the past decade. The fact that trans people are more likely to be ''victims'' in public restrooms than assailants goes unmentioned, and the idea of someone pretending to be trans to prey on your daughter someplace you can't protect her has no basis in reality, not to mention being a pervert is illegal whether the person claims to be trans or not. Lastly, these laws don't take trans ''men'' into account, who often have a smoother external transition than trans women and it would obviously cause a scene if [[http://www.buzzfeed.com/meredithtalusan/26-trans-guys-who-will-make-you-thirsty#.qyKArkzQv if one of these men]] walked into the ladies room, even though such laws would require them to. It doesn't help that even the police in these states have no idea how to enforce these laws, with responses ranging from "We'll cross that bridge when we get to it I guess" to targeting ''cisgender women for not looking feminine enough.''

* The movie ''Film/TheCondemned'' actually has a character argue that the media should be censored so that nothing which would not be appropriate for children could be shown. No, ''really''. And the movie's on ''her'' side. (Of course, [[StrawmanHasAPoint taking into account]] [[SadistShow the kind of stuff that's being shown on TV]] within the movie's universe...)

* When the trailer for Film/SilentNightDeadlyNight was 1st seen, many parents were offended by the fact that the film was about a serial killer in a Santa suit and that it would scar kids if they saw it and were protesting the film hoping it would get pulled from theaters. Even worse, they were more worried that with the film having a guy in a Santa suit would ruin kids by the fact that there is only 1 Santa.

Sadly, this is a case of TruthInTelevision, as it is very easy for media and politicians to play the "it hurts kids" argument to [[ThereShouldBeALaw get a law passed]], regardless of whether the law is good or effective, or even if protecting children is the main purpose of the law rather than a half-truth blown up to rally people's suport. The fact that kids are far more likely to be victimized by someone already in their lives is conveniently glossed over.

* Helen Lovejoy is a parody of this character on ''TheSimpsons''. Frequently, when something stirs up public outcry, in Springfield, she screams "Won't somebody ''please'' think of the children?" in a panic. Ironically, [[PreachersKid her own child is a kleptomaniac hellion who has to be sent to a boarding school for her crimes]] - but, of course, MamaDidntRaiseNoCriminal. The show also did this a lot on the seventh season episode "Much Apu About Nothing" (where Springfield holds a referendum to get illegal immigrants deported) and the season eight episode "Homer vs. The 18th Amendment" (where alcohol gets banned in Springfield after Bart gets drunk at the St. Patrick's Day parade), but not much in the later episodes, probably because the voice actress for Helen Lovejoy (who was also the voice actress for Ned Flanders' wife, Maude) left the show and the writers pretty much [[PutOnABus put her on a bus]] -- or kept her in the background and only bring her out in crowd scenes. Though the writers may have tired of the joke anyway; they could potentially have used recordings from a previous episode; the authors started subverting the natural pattern, an indication of an attempt to keep the joke fresh. For instance, in the episode where Homer and Marge rekindle their sex life by getting busy in public places, get cornered in the miniature golf course and flee before being seen, leaving their clothes for the crowd to find. As the crowd gasps at the idea of two people running around naked, Moe says the line while Helen is in the frame just to fool with the audience.
