Ok, here is a question -
A friend of mine has some porn on his phone.
Another friend of mine came across the porn when she stole his phone to root through it.
Who is most in the wrong? The guy for having porn on his phone of the girl for stealing his phone?
Hmm, an interesting question me thinks.
This IS an interesting question.
I would have to say, porn is a relative, altho complicated issue.
BUT stealing, and invading someones privacy, is wrong on all points.
so, to answer who is in the most worng..the thief.
are you the "friend"? is your girlfriend angry at you?
what this person does with his/her phone is thier own business, but he/she should know, thre are less expensive way to acess porn then a phone...
looking through someone's mail, email or phone is an invasion of privacy. having said that and if we r talking about morals...why did she feel the need to check up on him? did he tell her a non truth? there r 2 sides to every story, i guess. i know i'd be upset if i were in her shoes but i'm secure in my relationship and feel no need to monitor his activities. if she was lied to..that also is morally injust.
They're not boyfriend/girlfriend - from what I can gather she was just being nosey...
The nosy phone thief of course. What's wrong with porn? His phone. He can do what he likes with it.
That's what I thought.
Yes, porn can be seen as immoral because it is objectifying women (etc)
But surely it is the lesser of two evils...
Uh...porn can objectify men as well!
No one has any right to rummage through the personal belongings of another. Apparently you're not telling us everything. What is the relationship of the girl to the guy with the phone?
Hold on there buddy, the pendulum swings both ways on that. Porn is just sex, with a negative connotation attached too it. His phone is still his possession, like his house. Anybody ever heard of invasion of privacy or protection from unreasonable search i.e. fourth amendment? No!? I concede that porn on your phone probably isn't the wisest thing to do, especially without some sort of pass-code but it's still his phone.
And lastly, on the matter of objectifying women...It takes two to tango. This is 2009 not 1980. Most of the women on those porn clips, do so voluntarily and sometimes not because they so desperately need the money either. She was probably searching for something anyway.
The silly girl that stole his phone and got upset when she found porn. For crap sakes, he's a guy, guy's like porn.
Anyway she is in the most wrong.
Yeah, I'm on the side of the snooper being the most wrong for her actions.
Well as long as it's regular porn and doesn't involve children or unconsensual stuff, I'd say the snooping thief is the "immoral" one.
regular porn, thats pretty funny
really tho, the question was not..do you like porn? but, wich wrong is worse? watching other people have sex to get off? or invading soemone else's privacy? tough call I say
That's why I put the immoral in quotes.
I think regular porn involves consensual people who know what they are getting in to, think of it as a career, and that's just what they want to do for a living and they will find audience for that. I think invading someone else's privacy is more immoral. It's tough to answer without seeming like a perv.
Im getting out of this now, before I get myslef into any more trouble. I do believe you and I are on the same page.
I just meant...regular porn..the phrase..was kinda funny! I do know exactly what you mean, and do agree.
Children are not adults, stealing is worse then what you do with your own time and morals, without pushing them on someone else.
No probs. I just wanted to head off the religious marys at the pass.
Porn is porn, unless it's Horror Porn, then you've really got yourself something!
where ya been all day?!!
whats horror porn, or should I not ask?
my point was and still is, the question was not..is porn wrong, but wich one is worse?
I choose stealing and ivnvading a persons privacy to be worse...
I've been busy today. I had a meeting this morning, and have another one from 3 to 5.
Horror porn is basically monsters and ghouls having their way with whom ever they want.....
I believe I've experienced that more than once.
sounds "interesting"...have a good meeting,hope all is well, catch up with ya tomrrow?
I'll be here for a little bit. It's only 1:40 here.
guess I forgot where "here" was..?
Reading the above I can't help thinking of the questions you're asked when you order at places like Starbucks or McDonalds: "Porn, madam? Regular or large?"
Yes blood, that gory eyeball just turn so many people on!!!
Porn is fantasy. It's vicariously living through a fabricated experience.
Porn is an example comparable to video games, which are also addictive.
Steeling is not a vicarious experience.
You do the math.
What if you steal someone's porn because you don't want them to see you in it?
You should just say, I dont remember that, they fed me drugs unknowingly...
Nothing wrong with porn, so he isn't wrong. She shouldn't have been searching through though. But I understand it happens. If she's a friend, then it isn't any of her business Even if she was a girlfriend its something that depends on the relationship. In mine... I wouldn't care if his screensaver was naked chicks.
my question would be why should anyone steal anything from anybody.......
My answer would be...... Open pandoros box, without permission, don't be surprised at what you find..................
I vote with the majority for the phone thief. Although, it's pretty dumb to keep porn on your phone, I think.
Nothing wrong with porn - female or male - as long as the subjects are willing and of legal age. Stealing is wrong!

Do you believe religion is needed for morality? Is the bible the only guide to morality?If you believe these things, do you really think you would go around commiting crimes and immoral acts if the bible didn't tell you not to?

Been grappling with this one for a while now. Can't seem to find a way out of it. Is what is "legal" equivalent to what is "moral"? The question is raised because the justification for the enforcement of many laws these days seems to be that it is "the right thing to...
