For me morality can be deduced to the personal conceptualization and application of fairness. In my mentality there are three practical versions of fairness...

1. Charity or needfulness - To give or receive what is needed
2. Equality or balance - To divide or multiply equally
3. Merit or earned equity - To give or receive what is earned

These 3 variables of fairness combine and constantly change in developing our individual stances for determining what is right and wrong in any given situation.

Accurately applying these combinations of fairness towards life equals justice and justifiable morality. Failing to apply these combinations accurately results in immorality and injustice.

No problem. Rape wouldn't be fair based on these variables if you are talking about rape as a generalization. Variable 1 - The rape is not needed. Variable 2 - The rape is not being done to equal or balance a circumstance between the rapist and rape victim. Variable 3 - the rape is not earned in any way in the relationship between the rapist and rape victim. By this reasoning I deem the act of raping as a generalization immoral and unfair. Specific circumstantial details could quite possibly change this judgement as being moral or immoral though.

Example: If a woman was raped by a man she had never been in contact with before, the rape would be unfair and therefor immoral. But, if that same woman found her rapist and raped him in vengeance, the rape would be fair and therefor moral.

Please inquire further if you do not agree with my reasoning or if you are interested in hearing my take on a different situation.

Do you want me to give you a full critic..?
"The bud disappears when the blossom breaks through, and we might say that the former is refuted by the latter; in the same way when the fruit comes, the blossom may be explained to be a false form of the plant's existence, for the fruit appears as its true nature in place of the blossom. These stages are not merely differentiated; they supplant one another as being incompatible with one another." G. W. F. HEGEL

Allow?

I guess it would depend on the situation in determining it moral or immoral.

1. To give or recieve rape in quantities that are needed towards everyone.
2. To divide or multiply your rapings equally among your vicitms.
3. If you or someone else has earned the right to be raped, then both shall give and receive rape towards each other equally.

In other words, Everyone deserves to be raped, as long as they get raped equally to everyone else :)

How do you earn the right to be raped? o.O

And or socialism/communism
It's not your views that divide us, it's what you think my views should be that divides us.

If you think I will give up my rights and forsake social etiquette to make you "FEEL" better you are sadly mistaken

If liberal democrats would just stop shooting people gun violence would drop by 90%
