Empathy
Ability to understand another's feelings, thoughts, and experiences from that person's point of view.
Pornography
This is not about how wonderful sex can be but about how inhuman it can be, and such inhumanity is glorified by the assumption that it is appealing.
Pornography
This is a sexual depictions of persons in ways that imply or encourage the denial of their full humanity.
Stereotype
Mental label applied to the members of a group, an oversimplified "picture" of who they are based on assumptions about the group as a whole that may have little or no basis in fact.
Prejudice
Most of this is rooted in fear, which in turn often stems from ignorance.
We fear what we do not know. The fear leads to this that can also grow out of insecurity about oneself.
