Serious everyone is so sensitive

I have been watching dragon ball/z/gt since I was young as young as 4 and turned out fine, why is everyone such a Karen and not letting kids use imagination. I know you guys want to blame your bad parenting on a tv show. But come on guys this is why general tv sucks now a days.
