The Deliberative Duty and Other Individual Antidiscrimination Duties in the Dating Sphere
New publication by Simone Sommer Degn in Moral Philosophy and Politics
In "The Deliberative Duty and Other Individual Antidiscrimination Duties in the Dating Sphere! Simone Sommer Degn looks into what a moral antidiscrimination duty for individuals could look like in the dating sphere. The article was published September 22, 2023 with the journal Moral Philosophy and Politics.
What does morality require of individuals in their dating and sex life? In this article I challenge recent outlines of antidiscrimination duties in the dating sphere and present a plausible alternative: the deliberative duty. This duty avoids the risks and limitations of earlier outlines: it is time-sensitive regarding the malleability of intimate preferences, it avoids being too demanding on the duty-bearer and minimizes the risk of generating mere dutiful attraction behavior towards right-holders. In addition, it is better suited for universal action guidance in the dating sphere than earlier outlines of individual antidiscrimination duties.
