In a movie, such references would result in a rating that would prevent minors from viewing the film in a theatre or renting it from a video store without a parent present.
Not true. you can get a PG or PG 13 rating mentioning the word "fuck".

This thread isn't about what you personally find offensive, and it is very egotistical and narrow-minded of you to try to make it about that. The thread is about what perlmonks policy is, or isn't.
Perlmonks policy is to consider for deletion "highly offensive posts". The policy is not "delete posts that some people might consider somewhat offensive".

Any node can be considered by most monks, then the interested monks cast their vote according to their own standards (or someone else's if they want to). Only if enough monks vote for deletion and not enough vote to keep the node is reaped.

Perlmonks is an international forum, probably more varied and definitely less organized than the MPAA's rating cabal, so not everything that might be considered inappropriate for children's movie is considered inappropriate here. At least not by a fair number of voting monks.
