What's wrong with promiscuity?

If a man or woman lives a promiscuous lifestyle, what's wrong with it?If they are safe about it, what's wrong with it? If they don't judge those who are more conservative with their lives, why should they be judged?

I'm gonna bow out, nice chatting with y'all.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] HALO12325 Degeneration my friend.[/quote]Or we're progressing away from outdated ideologies like marriage. It's not really human nature to stay with one person your whole life. That's why we have such high divorce rates. Hopefully one day we will get rid of marriage all together and it could die along with other concepts such as religion, discrimination, etc.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] coolmike699 [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] HALO12325 Degeneration my friend. People can do what they like, but your logic could be used for anything really. What's wrong with fapping to nude babies? I mean, no one gets hurt. What's wrong with considering black people subhuman, I mean, as long as they don't judge you, why should you judge them? [/quote] Your logic could be used for anything, really. I mean, why think about others' promiscuity when the world could end tomorrow? Why care about old people when we could take everyone's logic to ridiculous extremes? [quote]I'm not saying they're equivalent by any means, but if there are no moral standards by which a society adheres to and does not change, what I listed could and would be considered totally ok. [/quote] Who's talking about a society with no moral standards? We're talking about a society with moral standards that are sometimes pointless and criticize aspects of people's lives that aren't important. [quote] It is quite obvious Western society's moral standards have changed into something else, to which I am happy when I see traditionalists. [/quote] If you don't judge people for having different morals than yourself, it's reasonable to expect them not to judge your traditionalism. [/quote] Uhh...I don't care what people think of my traditionalism. What makes you think different? You are free to hate it. @random, nah mate, I read that. You said media influences etc etc. Did we not have these things before? I know you're talking about first world. I guess I just put that in anyway, my mistake. [Edited on 09.26.2012 8:17 PM PDT]

Is this personal observation? Personally, anyone who I considered promiscuous had the same amount of chivalry as you and I. The people I considered promiscuous were nice and never held grudges or talked badly about their partners (e.g. No: Klara that -blam!-).
