Hello guys. This is my first post on here and i was hoping to see some people join a discussion but also maybe find some volunteers to spar with me on a debate. So any takers should let me know below. I will pick whoever seems like the biggest challenge of course! wouldn't be fun if i thought i would win easily.

Essentially i am arguing that rape (i.e bad things) is just as acceptable in the eyes of morality as using your phone (i.e random things we are indifferent towards) and that someone should view them in the same light from a LOGICAL stand point. For this debate i do not want anyone who is taking a god point of view. You may believe in god but cannot refer to him as then my goal is to prove he is not real before i can do anything else....so that is a whole other kettle of ballgame.

How exactly would you defend that using your phone is just as bad as rape?

So essentially you are arguing moral nihilism? If that is the case, I have no interest in debating you, as I believe moral nihilism is the most logical conclusions.
However, if you are making the argument that rape is morally equivalent to typing, under the assumption that objective morality exists, then I would be very interested to debate you.

You shouldn't use such a negatively loaded choice of words if you are looking for serious discussion here in the philosophy forum. Go say the same thing in the religion forum for the results you are looking for.

If you value rape just as much as you do using your phone, then, for you, I would say, "Yes."

So it would logically follow that we view such things, because they are such things.

That being, were some one to rape you, it would involve the same amount of indifference as typing on your phone, or them typing on their phone.
Here we have an advocate for Islamic arranged marriages demonstrating that children can consent to sex.
