Blasted? For that? I completely agree.

But it's not a question of legallity. They are taking advantage of younge women. If I found a woman stupid enough to give me all of her money, even though it's legal, I'm still taking advantage of her. And it's the same with drunk and nudity, at least in my opinion.

And I can't say I don't like it or cringe when the commericals come on. But I agree, it is wrong, and the guy is a scumbag.

Why continue? Because we must. Because we have the call. Because it is nobler to fight for rationality without winning than to give up in the face of continued defeats. Because whatever true progress humanity makes is through the rationality of the occasional individual and because any one individual we may win for the cause may do more for humanity than a hundred thousand who hug their superstitions to their breast.

I agree you would be taking advantage of her. The difference I see is that intelligence is something you cannot control. If the woman you described was drunk and gave you her money because of it she is in some way culpable in the situation just as I think these women in the girls gone wild movies are culpable for their actions as well. If he took naked pictures of retarded women then he would be responsible for the act and be taking full advantage of the women.

Government is not reason; it is not eloquent; it is force. Like fire, it is a dangerous servant and a fearful master. - George Washington
