20:00:08Luciferchat time
20:00:31LuciferThis week's topic is Taboos

Ophis (~Ophis@[death to spam].ns1.abiose.net) has joined #virus

20:01:15LuciferWhat taboos in our own culture today will seem quaint or bizarre to future generations?
20:01:31LuciferWhere do they come from, how do they evolve?
20:01:59LuciferDoes it ever pay to break them?
20:02:51LuciferAny thoughts on the subject?
20:03:12OphisI have to learn to log-on to #virus 30 minutes ahead so I can read the article before the chat
20:03:26Luciferyou can wing it Ophis
20:03:57LuciferMost the world thinks the US has some peculiar taboos
20:04:17OphisLet's name some taboos to start with
20:04:33Ophispedophilia certainly is one
20:04:54Lucifer* Lucifer nods
20:05:08LuciferThe attitudes towards sex are very prudish in the US
20:05:09Ophishmmm all I can think of is about sex :-)

20:05:34LuciferThe rest of the world points out the hypocrisy of allowing violence on TV but banning nudity
20:05:38Joneseyrace mixing with blacks is still a fairly strong one in the US, the intermarriage rate there is like 1/10th what it is in the UK, which now has a significant black population immigrated from former colonies
20:05:52Joneseyinterracial marriage with other groups doesn't seem so problematic in the US
20:05:54LuciferMaybe not hypocrisy, but certainly weird standards
20:05:55Joneseyasians, etc
20:07:11Luciferwhere'd ranger go?
20:07:14OphisThere are anti-taboos too: things you HAVE to agree with in a discussion:
20:07:15Luciferour local taboo expert
20:07:51Luciferhow about homosexuality? taboo or not?
20:08:14referentreserved keyword status, but not taboo
20:08:14Ophisin some circles yes. Taboos are "local" to different communities
