Right now, millions of sexual violence survivors are at risk for re-traumatization from the television programs they watch. But there's one easy thing the FCC can do to stop that -- create a "sexual violence" content warning for television.

Would have signed - but after 4 attempts, I have to let it go for now at least. It is a worthy petition!

Nope! Deal with you own problems do not try to force me to limit my enjoyment so you feel better. look you are responsible for your feelings. Not me. Whatever sexual violence is it has nothing to do with me. Frankly I like good dramas that are not pussyfooting around subjects.

This is not an edit, this is a warning - for those who may like good dramas but may choose to not relive a deeply personal tragedy. You - Scott haakon - may watch whatever you want, and yet, it would be considerate for those who are struggling to regain a sense of well-being to be warned of a sexually graphic crime - such as one that they have survived and would not like to view. Just being considerate, - I see nothing offensive in being considerate.

There is far too much violence of all kinds on television. I remember a statistic that children will see thousands of depicted murders and other acts of violence on television by the time they turn 18. This cannot have a good effect on growing minds.

All it is, is a warning, not a ban. Can't see why anyone would disagree with it. I think a warning is a good idea, then you can choose.

I agree that this is a good thing to warn people of what they are going to be watching, esp. if there are children involved (as viewers or in the program). No harm could come of it!

Already signed that one, but noted. There needs to be less sexual violence on t.v, and emphasis on clean shows.

Serious libel and slander were not permitted and are not permitted by the us constitution. That was a very good thing and is a good thing.

There are banning of crush of animals videos.
Where are the petitions to ban this violence -- with studies that show that these kinds of videos encourage violence.

(Are man and women worth as much as animals -- in your sight? and if you believe --in the sight of the creator -- who works His will through those who are willing to follow in His ways.)

I like shows that put up a warning, especially if there will be kids in the room!
