No, you wrote it’s blatant pornography. It cannot be both. Porn is for sale, produced with the intent to arouse the viewer.
A teacher shouldn’t be banned because of his art. Especially since every loon without the slightest shred of talent for kids is allowed these days.[/quote]
If you read my first post - just look above - you will see that besides I use actually both terms. I say it’s ‘blatantly pornographic’ (you can’t argue with that really) and I refer to his ‘art’. Of course art can be pornographic (Henry Miller anyone?), it can be both and his is. That’s not a big deal.
I think it’s perfectly reasonable to have a Referendar - basically a teacher on probation before getting full public servant status - be scrutinised if he’s sending such mixed signals - the privacy argument goes out of the window if you publish your private activities on the internet and sell your art. And, yes, a teacher can be banned for his art - sure, it’s a question whether his constitutionally secured right of expression (which, as a German public servant is legally limited) is being deemed more important than the breach of regulations he may have committed by producing and distributing it. He’s obviously free to challenge that in court.
So it’s unprofessional to refuse to give an answer where experts disagree? That means you’d be okay if an economics teacher would just blame america for the world recession, and not explain various point of views.
He stance wasn’t “pro/ok with violence” if that is your problem. He simply refused to depict FPS Games as a scapegoat.[/quote]
Sure it’s acceptable to weigh arguments in a discussion in an ethics class. But if he takes the fact that minors consume FPS illegally under age, and that (wrongly imho) they are blamed in the public debate as a contributing factor for violent behaviour, and thinks he can remain balanced and neutral (which in principle is a worthy endeavour), while at the same time publishing violent and pornographic artistic content (not privately, but on the internet) - it is perfectly legitimate to question his judgement.
