Concept of adultery is similar in Islam, Christianity and Judaism .The term "adultery" refers to sexual acts between a married person and someone who is not that person 's spouse. Whereas, extra-marital affairs includes both sexual attachments and romantic-friendly attachments. In traditional English Common Law, adultery was considered as felony. Felony was originally crime that involves confiscation of a person 's land or good. This concept was mainly prevailing in English legal system because such legal system use to consider wife as a man 's chattel and every man had right over his goods and properties.
I would like to start with Pornography as the debate has been particularly acute here. In the case of Pornography the Harm Principle can be applied if it can be demonstrated that the rights of citizens have been violated, which is hard to demonstrate in this case. Up to the 1970s the arguments against Pornography came mostly from social conservatives that argued that it was immoral and obscene. But while the purpose of Pornography is sexual arousal, it can, but does not necessary have to be obscene. It might be more advisable to warn the consumer rather than prohibit it.
Public shaming is when a person is humiliated in public instead of receiving jail time. Of course this could not get a person out of jail for offensive crimes such as sexual assault, homicide, or distributing drugs. Public shaming would be used for less offensive crimes such as petty theft, littering, or missed child support payments. These could be considered “shame-worthy offenses” according to Heather Wilhelm. Although many people think this tactic is immoral, public shaming is like any other type of punishment.
In June, 2008, there is a unbelieveable news topic was posted on ‘One News Show’ which is “Homosexual eases into 100 final at Olympic trials”.The truth is that; ‘One News Show’ was using automatic filtering system that switches an American Olympic medalist, ‘Tyson Gay’ into ‘Tyson Homosexual’. They soon edited the article but that ridiculous topic would be a great example of immoderate Internet Censorship. (Arrieta) Not individual group is censoring the internet, but also a government is censoring the internet under the guise of protecting their citizen from noxious informations like pornography or websites containing too much violent contents. Especially, a lot of Asian Countries are listed on the ‘Enemies of the Internet’ list by ‘Reporters
Using the pictures to threaten people is completely different from the exchange of pictures between two people privately. It should be considered a crime because it is harmful to the other person, but at the same time it is the problem of both the sender and the receiver because if the sender didn’t send out their nudes, many unwanted situation can be prevented. In regards to pressured or coercive sexting, it should be treated as a crime because it is the same as threatening
In the eyes of the author, “cultural pluralism complicates, and may even completely prevent, the definition of appropriate modes of behavior and self-expression.” With a thorough exploration of how this trend “affects some groups positively and others negatively,” he alludes to the foundation of law regarding pornography: obscene words. For class purposes, much of pornography law has stemmed from common law in England, including Anglican influence and a thorough integration of church and state. With every belief comes dissent, and as common law sought its way into the American legal system, so did landmark cases like Schenck v. United States and Abrams v. United States. Many obscenity cases came before — such as Regina v. Hicklin — and the ones after honed in on specific contexts, creating rules and tests to identify what truly was
Throughout history, laws have been deemed both moral and immoral based on an individual’s personal opinion. The morality of a law is completely subjective depending on a person’s unique perspective about the law itself and external factors accompanying the law. In Sophocles’s, Antigone, Creon passes a law that Antigone considers highly immoral because it directly violates the laws of the gods. Similarly, Thoreau elaborates on how the Fugitive Slave Act is immoral through his, “An Immoral Law” because describes how innocent citizens are sent into slavery based solely on discrimination. Furthermore, many citizens deem capital punishment in today’s society highly immoral because it legalizes murdering individuals for their crimes.
Until early 20th century, ‘heterosexuality’ was used to refer to ‘morbid sexual practices’ between men and women such as oral and anal intercourse, as opposed to ‘normal’ procreative sex. The term homosexuality – that is so casually usedtodayand is almost an everyday vocabulary – came into being only in the late 19th century Europe when discussions on the varied expressions of sex and sexuality became acceptable in academic circles. The term was used to describe “morbid sexual passion between members of the same sex.” It was declared ‘unnatural’ by colonial laws, as unnatural as casual sex between men and women that was not aimed at conception. The term homosexuality and the laws prohibiting ‘unnatural’ sex were imposed across the world through
