Actions that are always/usually wrong among 13-24 year olds and adults 25+ 13 to 24 year olds seem to have morally indifferent attitudes toward pornography. Only one-third of them believes viewing pornographic images is always or usually wrong (32%), compared to more than half of older adults (54%). The trend continues on reading erotic content (27% vs 45%) or watching sexually explicit TV or movie scenes (24% vs 37%). The largest difference between the two generations is their perspective on wanting something that belongs to someone else. Only 32% of teens and young adults believe it's always/usually wrong compared to 57% of adults over the age of 25. Taking something that belongs to someone else ranked first with 88% of 13 to 24 year olds and 95% of older adults believing it to be always or usually wrong. Having a romantic relationship with someone other than a spouse came a close second with 75% and 88% respectively. Third-ranked is saying something that isn't true with 71% and 87%. Overeating is considered wrong by 48% of younger and 58% of older adults, while thinking negatively about someone with a different point of view was equally wrong for both groups (55%). Significant consumption of electricity or water was deemed to be wrong by 38% of young and 40% of old adults. The one topic on which the younger generation is more strict in contrast to the older one is recycling. More than half (56%) of the 13 to 24-year-olds selected that not recycling is always/usually wrong juxtaposed to 45% of those older than 25.
