    Case 6i: Is it morally acceptable for children to be used in pornographic films? Does it make a difference if their parents approve? I feel children being in pornographic films are not morally acceptable. The reason I feel like this is because it’s not the parent’s body. The child once grown will have to deal with the mental or physical issues that may occur. As parents we are to instill morals in our children.

People often spend hundreds of dollars to bury their dogs, cats, birds, goldfish and hamsters. Is this practice morally acceptable? I do feel this is an acceptable moral practice. Animal cruelty is punishable by law. I personally feel if the law can punish you for treating a pet wrong, then the only way to treat pets is like a family member. I feel like pets bond and love just like humans, and just as when our love ones dies we lay them to rest in a respectful manner. This should be no different when it comes to our pets.…

    consequences of these materials. It order to discuss the extent to which pornography is harmful, it must first be defined what pornography is. From this point and thereafter the term pornography will be assumed to be “sexually explicit material (verbal or pictorial) that is primarily designed to produce sexual arousal in viewers” (Stanford) .

Vertical and Horizontal Suspension of the ‘Classical,’” which is also by Linda Williams.

    Gender Roles In Ex Machina

    Machina centers on technology and artificial intelligence, it also focuses on gender politics. In this essay I will argue that the interactions between robot and human in the film represent contemporary relationships between men and women, specifically those that involve the dehumanization and sexual-oppression of women. This can be seen through the allegory of the Turing test, which is not only meant to determine Ava’s humanity but also her value as a woman; and through the inferior ranking of…

    In 2001, Michael Haneke directed a film called, The Piano Teacher. Haneke’s view, as conveyed to the viewer, is not to rail against pornography, per se, but to rail against its impact as generated by a capitalist-patriarchal society. This stems from a similar modality of thinking introduced by Linda Williams in 1989, in which she “...moves beyond the impasse of the anti-porn/anti-censorship debate to analyze what hard-core film pornography is and does…” (Slade 656). Haneke’s method is…
