I don't think a few people on a literary site have the sole capacity to make this issue any better or worse, and there is an element in people when told what to do, as you are advising your fellow litkickers to 'step away from this issue', that makes the want to talk about it that much more inviting, and just who are you to dictate what I will talk about? I do agree that porn and sex are different, and often the only thing that these two have in common sometimes is that two people are naked together rubbing their anatomy aganist each other's and so on, but that is a grey area that no one person has the athority to define as black or white, and the fact remains that these people who campaign against pornography lable anything where people are naked, or engauged in intimate activity as 'porn'; an important step I feel is separating nudity from sex first of all, and then the different degrees of intimacy from sex, and then deciding base on the norms and values of that society what in that spectrum is approtriate and inappropriate to broadcast publically, but not condem the whole practice as obsene or indecent; what ARE you saying firsty, you think that sex is not bad and that children should not grow up thinking it is, but still they should not be allowed to view it, or cetain types of it; that people watching porn in their automoblies is akin to anarchy? I didn't say anything about a freeforall in every aspect of society, that belongs to you, I am saying that getting the law involved when someone watches sex or porn on their car DVD is grossly excesive and an indication of how we depend so much on the police to settle every little gripe, which is a bad thing; I also this it is irresponisble of you to assosiate my 'lodgic' to scenes of rape, violence, murder, etc., I said nothing about that, and I really don't have any clear idea of what you are saying in this thread
