Yes but your moral compass has to come from somewhere. I'm asking from where. What exactly does your moral compass say to you?
What exactly is the point of hammering him? I'm all for demanding someone back up their ideas, and I've been known to heavy hand someone to make the point, but if one thinks, morally, that certain acts demean people, why does that need more? There are people that think that women doing porn - even of their own free will - is demeaning. I don't share that belief, but if you look at it from the perspective of the people that USE porn, predominantly men, and how THEY then perceive women from their roles in porn, it's not a simple calculus. Why is casual sex any different, even if you disagree with it? If men (and perhaps other women) then view that as a woman conceding her worth to her sexual attraction, who's to say that's wrong? Who are you to question the calibration of someone's moral compass?
I'm not on trial so I'm not going to define what makes my moral compass acceptable to others.
I don't need to provide a burden of proof the say that I believe those kinds of things cheapen a woman. I'm not asking for agreement, but I'm allowed to have that point of view.
I don't necessarily agree with Tick, but I also don't think his idea is so far off the mark as to be mocked.
For the record, I never condemned causal sex in general. That has many layers to it. Going out on a date, and having it go well and the night ending in consensual sex. That's pretty commonplace.
I said what's the difference between Trump posturing with macho nonsense and the woman who blows a guy she met in the parking lot at 2:00am because shes hammered and willing to do anything.
My point is everyone does some unsavory things, but many are quick to judge others using a different barometer than the one they use for themselves.
I have been in rock bands the better part of 30 years and have been involved in many types of sexual situations. Some situations where I felt guilty the next day for allowing some things to happen I felt probably should not have based on the circumstances. That's just me. I respect woman and feel bad when I felt I took advantage of a situation.
Sometimes I have felt, "man I wish I hadn't let that happen"
What can I say, I'm an old school gentleman by nature, who has always opened up the car door for my dates and treat woman with great respect.
But I'm human have done things I'm not proud of, no matter how anyone else views it.
That's my moral compass.
If this explanation isn't good enough, please don't ask for more because this is the best I can give you all.
