We Americans are the biggest hypocrites. We find all aspects of sex taboo, yet we are obsessed with violence. However, the majority of horrible crimes seem to be sex-related, likely due to the barrage of sexual images used to sell us stuff.
We sell our kids toy guns, and hoochie clothes to little girls, yet are surprised when teenage boys shoot up schools, and teenage girls become pregnant.
We will show a cop shooting a man holding hostages at 6:00 (just in time for dinner), yet janet Jackson flashes one nipple, and all hell breaks loose.
So, in light of this, I open the discussion with a query: If, given a choice of careers (meaning a job that would define your life), which would you find absolutely unimaginable? Porn Star, or Assassin? Prostitute or Sniper? Exotic Dancer, or Hitman?
What is worse? Getting paid for sex, or violence? Which profession could you live with? What are you most afraid/ashamed of, and why?
