Right and Wrong
    #654114 - 05/30/02 06:44 PM (15 years, 29 days ago)

I got to thinking to day about myself verse the average human. I think that I am quick to point out the wrongs in other people. However, do I avoid the same wrongs in my self?

For example:

A friend of mine got into a fight with his girlfriend over her sexual past. I thought that was wrong. Her past is her business. He shouldn't care beyond that she is disease free.

I thought, what if she was my girlfriend? Would I worry enough about it to raise a stink? I don't know, I hope I wouldn't.

then I got to thinking that it depends on if sex is a moral right or wrong, or a personal preferance. I myself believe that I want to only sleep with people I care deeply about. This of course limits my choices. However, if some one else believes that sex is a casual thing that is a personal preferance, and I should not judge them for it.

If it were a moral R/W then I would care, for example: I would never date a serial killer.

I hope this makes sense. There is a line between morals and preferances, and if you must judge some one, judge them based on morals not preferances.

I know exactly what you mean...

I have the same feelings about sex as you do, but many other people have a much more casual approach to the subject.
I don't think it's right for me to judge them for this b/c like you said, it is a personal preference. I am a strong believe in "to each his own."
Also, if it doesnt have an effect on you directly, why care at all? I don't feel it's right to have any ill feelings toward someone based on a decision that they make that only affects there life.

For example, a very good friend of mine (at one time) suddenly HATED me when he found out I had started smoking. I don't think this was right of him at all, since smoking is my decision, and if I don't smoke around him, it doesn't affect him at all.
What do you think?

Good work mate, sounds like you are beginning to understand why morality is such a problem in philosophy!

Someone told me once that there's a right and wrong. There is no such thing. It's only wrong if you get caught.

Agree or disagree?

who's to say whats right or wrong, society, a silly bible of simply anothers view. I need not say more but think for yourself, let go of society for what can it bring you which will not pass at death.

I had this ephiphany a few years ago, and it explained why I didnt have many friends before I discovered it.
For example, I had a friend, she had a nice figure, and dressed like a slut. Everywhere we went guys were falling all over themselves to be next to her, but when it came time to exchange numbers, the pack split. I usually got a numberor 2 , she got 7 or 8. And of course, she 'dated' most of them .But, when they didnt call back, she was heartbroken.

This went on for about a year or more, and she was getting depressed. She asked me if Guy's didnt take her 'seriously' because she looked like a slut.
I said, "No you dont look like a slut, you are a slut., and Men don't respect that in the end."
I nevr told her she ws a slut, until she asked, and truly, she was . It wasnt the clothes, ok that had something to do with it. It was the frequency of her 'dates' and the sheer number of them. But, also, the fact that it never fixed the void she was trying so desperatly to fill .
We never spoke again.

So, that was how I lost my last friend.
Now I just smile and nod.
