Youre right about the gray area. Pornography can be a host of things. Sometimes, pornography can be a sultry dressed woman who dresses that way for
the singular purpose of inciting male desire for her; in which case, shes a walking pornographic image.
I think it takes maturity and self responsibility. A woman does not need to dress that way in public,. I completely agree with the more conservative
christian/muslim/jewish viewpoint here. Insecure woman feel the need to dress that way. And a woman tends to feel insecure because the media programs
her to feel that way. But even deeper, and primally speaking, a woman desires to meet a man who will make her feel like a trillion dollars. A woman
simply wants to be important, and loved, and when she meets a man who makes her feel that way she wont feel the need to dress herself up to entice
other (possibly married) men. So. You can almost say that its a mans responsibility to make sure his wife feels loved and cherished so she wont have
In anycase, i think the issue is an intrinsic problem with western culture and society. This isnt something that is essential to the human condition,
but more so a symptom of a sick, unhappy society that seeks cheap and superficial thrills to fill its void.
Im not sure what the buddah would say here. Avraham, would probably prescribe what im writing here, That we all act more conscientiously and seek to
live in tune with the spiritual energies in creation. Pornography, is not a cure for unhappiness. Thats a pagan and dionysian idea that works into the
favor of demagogues (that is, if you want to be exploited by the powerful, by all means, trust in the supposed stability in this philosophy). The idea
that athena and dionysus cures mankinds 'ills' is a lie and forgery that only egyptian and hellenistic tyrants find nice: because they know it makes
people spiritually weak and suscepitble to manipulation.
So... Obviously in this "world" nothing can be change about it. it seems to be getting even worse. But in a perfect world, all of us would be
thinking, and most of all, conducting ourselves in spiritually mature ways. With an emphasis on Family values - which is a microcosm of the cosmos,
and an honoring of ones spouse, which children will see and reciprocate when they get older and meet someone. Its very simple. Theres no need for
pornography, or violent video games or any of these meaningless and cheap things. Whats needed is a deeper understanding in the purpose and unity
between each other (thus excluding the value of violence. One who sees himself in his neighbor wont want anything negative to happen to him) and a
respect for the spiritual sanctity of life (Thus obviating the cheap objectification of woman and sex as an end in itself. Sex is meant to reflect a
deep love and complimentarity between polar forces)
