History channels' Ax Men stoops low for ratings.

I thought Ax Men was somewhat ok for my kids to watch, ages 10 and 13. Mostly to convince them a good education was important. However, the last episode had one of the "men" saying one of this peers sucked, which in itself is not too offensive, but he also felt the necessity to demonstrate how one would do so with his hands grasping a pretend item and directing it toward his mouth. History channel has been one of my favorite channels on television but lately has seemed to decline in quality and is now a "reality" channel. The folks over at A&E must think there are more ratings in "reality" and have forgone quality to achieve it. I, and my family, will no longer be watching History channel.
