in response to reader comment: Hollywood's loose morals

Submitted by Sarah (Australia), Mar 6, 2010 at 13:15

Blame it on hollywood or blame in on religon but the end answer remains that the issue is people want others to be just like them, to want the same things and act the same way. If someone elses choices do not harm others how can they be so offensive that the choice needs to be removed. I dont care if gay people marry or women wear veils, gay marrige and veils are a choice people make and I am secure enough in my choices that seeing someone do differently does not bring about the urge to force them to my way of thinking. Other peoples "loose morals" are only a threat if you dont trust your own self control or your own ability to think for yourself. I will admit I prefer to see a persons face when I speak to them but thats my complex about people concealing things and is not their problem and not their responsibility to make everything is the way I would prefer. No harm No foul and if I want everything around me to be within my control I shouldnt leave the house.
