    public policy issue of children’s advertising described in Consuming Kids. After reading McGinn’s moral argument about mindfucking, one can conclude that this concept does apply to the public policy issue of children’s advertising. Consuming kids is about how advertising targets children to make them believe that they need whatever it is being advertised. Mindfucking is a type of abuse that plays on people’s emotional sensitivities. For example: a commercial that has a bunch of kids playing with the new iPod touch and using words like cool and fun will create the message that in order to be “cool” one must own the new iPod touch. This concept is used not just in electronics but also with toys, food, and clothing. After the FTC Improvement Act was passed in 1980 under the Ronald Reagan administration, the FTC lost the authority to regulate the type of advertising shown to children which, in the past, kept mindfucking to a minimum. The rise of the internet and electronics in general has made it easier for advertisers to manipulate the minds of young children. 3.

    Charles Montgomery elaborates in his article “Why We’re Sometimes Kind Without Reason” how people act when they first meet. To us, the first impression is everything and we will be anything just to impress others. Why is it that other people’s opinions always matter the most to us? We let what other humans think of us consume us and all we think and act on is that instinct to make each individual like us. Can you even call yourself an individual if all you do is adjust yourself to other eyes?…

    Critics that claim that these warnings act as shields from the inevitability of reality fail to recognize that more often than not these trigger warnings are for those who have already experienced a reality that they would rather not relive. That reason alone should be enough to negate any critics ' argument completely.
