The question currently under debate is whether artistic depictions of something that would be horribly offensive in real life should be legal? Both the legality and social value of the material is a topic of debate, as to whether the material provides an outlet for something that shouldn't exist in real life or whether it encourages it. One of the volunteers I chat with talks about how she's uncomfortable with a lot of material herself, but she believes people have a right to express anything they want to in art, she thinks it's a slippery slope to censor artistic depictions of anything.
I think I smell homework.
