Perhaps because you surrounded your post with extraneous and confusing nonsense.

I don't know what Pinkie Pie is, but the Elsagate/Toy Freaks stuff was not illegal.

Anthony Jeselnik's jokes are not illegal.

No federal prosecutor in the country would try to say that they are.

If you think these are legally obscene as oppossed being obscene in a colloquial sense, please lay out a case with a specific example that violates the Miller test.

Currently, obscenity is evaluated by federal and state courts alike using a tripartite standard established by Miller v. California. The Miller test for obscenity includes the following criteria: (1) whether ‘the average person, applying contemporary community standards’ would find that the work, ‘taken as a whole,’ appeals to ‘prurient interest’ (2) whether the work depicts or describes, in a patently offensive way, sexual conduct specifically defined by the applicable state law, and (3) whether the work, ‘taken as a whole,’ lacks serious literary, artistic, political, or scientific value.

It's nice to see you pandering to the amoral people in society.

Wtf are you talking about?

Why do we even have movie and videogame ratings (G, PG, PG-13, R, NC-17)? You've heard of the watershed in relation to TV programming times, right? Why do TV programs have warnings that the program may not be suitable for some viewers?

Movie ratings are not laws. They are put out by the MPAA which is an industry group.

You keep stating without evidence that YouTube is showing obscene material. You need to back that claim up. You are assuming facts not in evidence.

Also whether or not YouTube should have a ratings system is a separate issue from is some video or some tweet legally obscene?

You're absolutely wrong and I will demonstrate why if I can receive adequate up-votes to post on the main forum.
