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 have conveniently missed the portion which explicitly expresses that the portrayal can occur in the written form.

You do ynderstand that the FCC does not regulate the internet right?

I didn't say the ratings were laws.

You cited them in a thread about federal.obscenity laws where they don't apply.
