    Which Is More Dangerous?

    For a child to have warped attitudes toward violence or sex?

    We are perfectly willing to protect children from sexual situations and make sure that things are put into a proper context, and complain endlessly about events like the Janet Jackson debaucle, but we deal with violence in the media like it's yesterday's news. Personally, I think that violence is much more dangerous if warped, and I can't believe that sexual situations are given so much more attention.

    Granted my answer is loaded, but the question is not. Thoughts?

    This is like asking "what's more dangerous, a bowie knife or a stiletto?"

    These questions are not really related. I don't think many people are that willing to protect their children from indecent sexual content, nor violence for that matter. What is abominable is this postmodern view that sexual and physical delinquency is the righteous need of man to express himself.

    I think both are equally dangerous. But my idea of warped sexual attitudes differ greatly than most conservative Americans on this board. I think stifling sexuality creates a warped sexual attitude.

    At worst, a warped view about sex can lead to an unfufilling sex life.
    At worst, a warped view about violence can do so much worse.

    And remember, **** falls under the violence category, because **** is about power, not about sex.

    There are several type of rapists, SD. You're talking about one type, but there are others.

    And a warped view of sex can lead to a lot of problems, much more than just an unfufilling sex life.

    I think the two are difficult to compare. A warped sense of violence harms others. A warped sense of sexulity harms mostly yourself.

    Violence causes death. Sex causes life.

    I'll take a warped combo of both to keep the population balanced. Then again kinky sex is better than kinky death.

    Not really, you are the first one to get the joke. Way to be old school. Bonus points if you can explain WHY it's funny that I am using this avatar.
