Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

everything on newgrounds.

A BRIEF review OF.NEWGROUNDS. common sense media claims this website is "too inappropriate" well this website not half as bad as it seems.Even though it has lots of bloody gory flash games like picos school or..alien hominid or some of the animations on there the website is nor realistic nor graphiced for me as a early teen. its so unrealistic its FUNNY and i was allowed to play it when i was 13! this game is neither really sexual though some of the fanart or some of the posts on there are probably disturbing for my younger kids its NOT AS SEXUAL AS YOU MIGHT THINK even though their MIGHT be extremely sexual posts from time to time its like it blurs the posts that are inappropriate and for adults AND ARE LABELED ADULTS and IT DOES NOT FOR TEENS. If you are one of the adults here like i am you would probably remember the mascots of newgrounds tankman is the mascot these days BUT BACK THEN is when and always will be the extremely VIOLENT era when pico was the mascot he basically was a gangster and the mascot had his own game and a few animations and was featured in fnf or friday night funkin besides newgrounds is not as sexual as google search or youtube or DO NOT USE IF KID pornhub DO NOT USE IF KID! the games and animations also use swear words such as the F bomb the S word and the B word also the A word and barley to a slight percent of none the N word. its okay but not the best for 15 year olds other wise ages younger DON'T GO ON THE WEBSITE.

Newgrounds is not for childdren under 17! There is violent cussing including the N-F and C bombs! Theres also violent graphics and in some games sexual content. I wouls ugest if your kid is in beetween 13-17 they are only allowed to play it uder heavy supervision. The games are amazing though!
