Public Sex and the Harm Principle
May 04, 2006
Amber Taylor has started a very interesting dicussion on this question: How can a libertarian support bans on sex in public? Most people seem to say, "Because I don't want to see it." Of course, there are lots of things I don't want to see in public. Nose-pickers and perverted-gawkers come to mind, as do paparazzi and celebrity fawners. People who fawn over celebrites literally make me sick to my stomach.
But why should one's subjective view of what is beautiful give him or her the right to impose that view on others? Discuss.
