Ma, What Does S&M Mean?

Like some of you out there, I wasn’t allowed to listen to “Non-Jewish music” as a kid. My father was allowed of course, but that was because he lied to us about it. Looking back, that seems to have been the general idea of chinuch in our house. Anyhow, the reason I bring this up is because I constantly hear complaints about the evils of secular music, movies, etc, from people who I know watch TV and listen to Goyish” Music.

“No, that was different, back then music was ok.” Taken at face value, this statement is ridiculous. What they mean is that music wasn’t as open about it’s meaning. For example, if you wanted to say “have sex” you said “love”. This allowed parents to lie to their children better.
