Should a girl get bullied in college for something like this?

    The young turks have recently reported that a young college girl at duke  has been doing pornography on the side to help pay for her college expenses.  Needless to say, some of her classmates found out, and bullied her over it.  Even going to the extent of calling her a whore, and releasing public information like how to find her and etc.  Here's a link to the video for more information on the topic:


    Assuming you watched the video, what are your thoughts on this?

      Sad and appalling. It's none of their business how this young lady is trying to better her life by funding her way through college. What counts is that she is trying to better life. College is damn expensive, and not everyone is born with dads and moms who can afford to send their kids off to college.

      Is she harming these other kids by what she is doing? Not really. Is it an accepted way to fund your way through college? Not really, but who am I to judge? I am not her, not in her situation, and definitely have not walked a mile in her shoes. But there would be nothing to pat myself on the back for making another person feel like crap. If they feel good and proud about making someone else feel like garbage, perhaps they should take a deeper look at themselves and see that it is they who really have the problem.

        If the college doesn't do anything about bulling, then she can a restraining order against the bullies and/or sue them. It's being done.

    The guy in the video got it right - everyone is wrong.

    The "bullies" are idiots
    The self-righteous finger pointers are idiots.
    The girl thinking being a porn "star" is acceptable and "empowering" is an idiot.

    And folks that think working in the porn trade is acceptable and harms no one are idiots too.

    Is this where we are - there is no moral baseline, re: being a porn star is "empowering" is good? No personal responsibility, re: giving out the girl's address?

    Yep, we humans are like a basket full of surprise bags - turds and diamonds all in the same lot.
