Dow Jones and the Temple of Doom: theflatline: This is fairly typical for us in Florida.

You have a lot of northerners whose parents who have retired here, who have their grown children who have committed some crime, move down here and either they get up to their old shenanigans or get outraged when they get outed.

This. There wouldn't be a Florida tag if not for dumbshiat northerners who moved down here to be with their retired parents.


THIS THIS THIS!!!!

I live in a town where one of the battered women's shelters decided to renovate and move into a building that was right across the street from an apartment house full of sex offenders! I asked one of the board members why they chose that particular building and weren't they worried about potential problems? She said no! Go figure?

italie: Normal is  not actively touting nudes of your children to people who really shouldn't be seeing it.


Duh.

But you didn't say that, you said on the desktop at all, and don't change it when  you have company.

So, like, if my sister comes over and there's junior in the tub with a suds mohawk, I'm the debil, or something.

Or one of my wife's friends, they'd all be, "awwwwww"

Really, if you have anyone visiting your house that "shouldn't be seeing" such a picture, maybe you need new friends.

A laptop can do cool stuff, like move location. You could even put it on the 'top' of your 'lap'. Say in a coffee shop, or a park bench, etc...

Oh, right, but your so cool all the people there are probably your friends anyway.

It can also sit there on a desk forever to be used basically as a regular non-mobile PC and never move until it needs fixing. Like mine.

From the original story the guy wasn't going into coffee shops and showing everyone the screen anyway. He brought it in to a repair shop. Presumably because it was broken. You know like when it won't do anything you ask? Like changing desktop images for example.

In your perfect world should he not have put that picture of his kid up on his laptop at all? Just in case it froze and then some repair guy would have to see a *gasp* baby about to take a bath? The horror.

Hey, if Beiber would have locked up the purple drank 'n weed, the feds might not have seen it when they randomly searched his house for egg cartons. But, ya know, it was his house and all so it was probably an OK move to leave it out, and have his weed in a cookie jar.

The problem with this is that "pornography" isn't really definable by any set standard. The definition I hear most often is that is must exist solely to tittilate the viewer. That is it's sole purpose. So when dude's boss puts an image of his kid in the bath up on the screen, it's not porn. But when Mr. This Is Making Me Feel Funny In The Pants Repair Guy looks at it, it magically becomes porn? Or obscene? By this logic I should never show anyone a picture of my kid even fully clothed, just in case they're a sicko. I should probably just never take him outside where there are strangers at all.

Because the line isn't clear, we've put "naked" as one of the determining lines on what's acceptable and what's not, even though nudity itself is not inherently sexual. You're doing the same thing. You don't disagree with simply having narcotics around in one's own home, but you do seem to agree that photos of your kids in the bath are along the same lines as illegal narcotics and should be treated as such. And this is how we get to "put some clothes on that baby for god's sake that's just wrong," which to me is a lot more creepy and has a lot of negative implications for society and personal freedom in general. Nudity, breastfeeding, etc, should not be a crime. You'd make it--or at least fall in line with the idea--that the human body itself is bad and shameful?

I believe getting over our hangups about sex and nudity is a must if we're going to truly reach an enlightened age.

Fafai: Cloudchaser Sakonige the Red Wolf: I never will understand why our society does not consider posessors and distributors of legal porn to be potential rapists while at the same time, posessors and distributors of child porn are considered to be potential molesters.

Because porn is to sex with adults (legal) as child porn is to sex with minors, which is, by definition, rape. If it's a causation thing, someone who likes porn might want to recreate those acts with a partner in a totally legal way. But those other types? Recreating what they see would be rape 100% even if they convince themselves they have a 'willing' partner.


Good point, thank you!

Nice attempt at backpedalling, but what you said was:

"Yeah, those two lines of thought are bad...but putting up naked (albeit innocent) pictures of your kids as a desktop background is way beyond weird. Not changing said pictures when strangers will be looking at your PC blows weird out of the water, and replaces it with brain-dead."

You see, that is what is called an absolute.  You imply anyone who does so is "beyond weird".  Nothing of laptops or traveling.  What I posted was in contrast to your absolute.

Go be a dipshiat elsewhere.

I've handled a LOT of peoples personal and work computers in the past, mostly at times they weren't expecting it. Naked pictures of children is is definitely out of the norm.

CSB:
I've seen one, ONE, person in my lifetime with a rear-shot nude of one of his kids as the desktop. Both on his personal laptop, and his work PC. It was something as innocuous as an Ann-Geddis style shot. It still caught some people off guard so we asked him to remove the work one. (I didn't care, for the record)

Turns out about 6 months later that person got locked up for beating his wife, and molesting his 16 year old daughter.

So, at least in my world, the nude-kid desktop score is:

Creepy pedophile wife beater -1
Everyone else - 0

//If you'll excuse me, I have some dipshiattery to attend to.
