TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
I'll take a contrary position to what I've seen so far. I would have no
problem saying no to such a project. Just because something is legal,
doesn't make it ethical. In my opinion, and beliefs, these industries cause
a lot more problems than most people realize. They devalue human worth,
cause marriage problems, increase crime and who knows what other problems
are created. Pornography is as damaging as any illicit drug and I couldn't
sleep at night if I knowingly contributed to their bottom line.
I've turned down work for another industry that was probably more socially
acceptable because of my beliefs. No I won't sell out for the bucks or the
opportunity to be exposed to the cutting edge. Whether I was exposed to the
objectionable content or not has no bearing on my decision. I won't be a
part of victimizing (mostly) women.
