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.

Reddit is a useless platform

Reddit is an utterly disgusting and biased platform. They are not at all transparent people and their moderators are another useless lot. It does not want facts to reach people and good contents and comments are removed while the fake ones are allowed to continue. Overall not a good feeling to express on this platform. If there was a 0 rating, I would give the website 0.

Some things should never be seen. Reddit has every single bit of it! NOT Safe for Anyone That Is Sane

Reddit is saturated with horrifying images pouring out of Ukraine and other nations. Rape, I saw a posting for a video link from a russian soldier molesting an infant in Ukraine, other child molestation images, death, harm to animals. When you speak out against this content, you are attacked by redditors and reported as saying inappropriate things. It is clear why reddit is such low quality. Avoid it as an adult if you want your sanity. Certainly, do not let your children near this site. Multiple sub reddits discuss and encourage drug usage and other illegal activities.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much sex
Too much swearing
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking
