Mmmm kitty porn…
Three times as many people think it is morally acceptable for a single person to view pornography on the internet than to download copyrighted video, according to a new poll.
The survey also indicates gender differences in what is morally acceptable behaviour, with women being overall less approving of viewing pornography, using dating services, downloading copyrighted material and flirting with others on the internet.
The results are the second in a series of UMR polls on morality. One thousand New Zealanders were surveyed online in November. The poll indicated 41 per cent of New Zealanders think it is morally acceptable for a single person to view pornography, compared with 13 per cent who see downloading copyrighted video as acceptable and 18 per cent who consider downloading copyrighted music acceptable.
