Bad vs Worse!!!!

Today I am going to compare bad with worse and you have to choose your one option and tell me why.
An adult channel started being aired in a small city. Many people went to the cable operator talking about the impact it would have on the children watching it.
And soon it was removed.
When one of the famous actors(female)did a bold role in a film many other stars came up to the media criticizing her. Saying how could she do this. Its against the culture and so on.

But in both the cases what I would like to say to the concerned is more than an adult channel or a bold role, the things which have a bad impact on children or are against our culture are cheating other people to fill own pockets, making others feel inferior on the basis of the so called caste system, taking a human life, gender bias, treating some jobs down market, showing pride, giving importance to only moneyed people and many more such things which many people do without feeling a single prick of conscience.
Its just really awful to have such thinking.



note: its just comparison of bad with worse not good with bad.

hmmm.. Bad Vs Worse.. well i guess porn could have a so called bad influence on kids.. considering the kind of society we live in.. and talking about the movie actor u mentioned, well she gets paid for what she does. Noone's forcing anyone to watch any movie. Moreover thats why we have the censor board! and it doesn't really hurt anyone. But the latter like you said, cheating, fraud etc cause harm to individuals.

Very true. People always want fame and they say blah blah about sex scenes in movies, but no one cares about smoking/drinking showing in movies which has far more influence on kids. Almost all superheroes smokes and drinks, and those kids who watch these movies will get the feeling that only those who smoke like that has the style.

Excuse me...do u hav a point here...? Sorry i didn't get it...you've listed a large number of probs...do u really think de curb on cable operators will prevent children from gettin all de adult content...?even parental filters in internet don't save...de actor in 'bold' role...hmmm...referring 2 some Indian movie? 'bold' movies carry A certificates na hi hi...
Honestly i read this post just once in a puzzled mood(thanks 2 ma exam seasons) n i didn't get yer point will read it again...hoo...

Nithin Jayan said...

Or where u ranking de factors? Well in that case u r not being fair...there r a trillion things that can mislead a child...even a suicidal tendency in a pregnant lady will affect her kid...dad n mum fightin all de time will damage de kid...etc...so u sure a clear cut distinction between worse n bad can b made? how exactly can u grade them...do hit me wid a clarification

@ Arun:

Yes I guess u got my point.
I was just trying to say wen there are much more worse things than porn in the society then why is everyone so much bothered about it.

Priya Joyce said...

@ aneesh:

yah rightly said and also u have raised a constructive point.
ye why only a few people question such things.
I agree.

Nithin Jayan said...

Seems u really under estimate de 'porn' stuff...hi hi...can't help yupp...de impact is nothin small mate...trust me :-)

Priya Joyce said...

@ Nithin:

I guess u did not understand my point. its better u read it once more.

Priya Joyce said...

@ nithin:

wen typing out my post I was sure that I would be facing criticism. And see I am.
Niway here I called bad and worse in my opinion. As I think we can choose between watching and not watching such movies but the other issues.
But the other issues I raised can't be avoided.
And the ranking it was completely my opinion and I know not many people are for it.

Priya Joyce said...

@ Nithin:

no buddy I don't under estimate porn. I just feel its like a small pebble in front of the big rock of the other probs i mentioned.

Nithin Jayan said...

yeah dats agreeable...may b a sharp pebble...k wats not agreeable is a mail remainin un attended...grrrr..go chk yer mail...

n yeah rankin is fine...i dont think
it's not gonna b practical...4 eg...even in medicine, pathologists can't clearly rank de aetiological factors!!! whether its smokin or promiscous sex or a high risk male partner is de prime culprit 4 causin a Cervical Carcinoma,,,

that's just an analogy k...keep writin...it has been long since i really 'cut thru' yer posts..!!!

can hardly wait 4 ma exams 2 finish off...

Priya Joyce said...

@ nithin:

Priya Joyce said...

Selerines said...

It all depends on people mindset.. If you like watch it otherwise just leave it... Why should you? Every thing is common, if you like then make use of it, otherwise close your eyes and go in your way... Thats what my opinion!!!

Priya Joyce said...

@ selerines:
