That was the reaction, by some, to this:
Seriously, are we that backwards in society that we need to be terrified by skin? Kids can watch movies and play video games with some pretty extreme violence and no one will bat an eyelash but if you show them a partially clothed human body they might be scarred for life. Maybe, just maybe, it’s possible that they’ll grow up with an interest in the human body and a respect for it because they’ve been made familiar with it from a young age instead? I know an awful lot of adults who are not very comfortable with they’re bodies or with nudity in general. Maybe this wouldn’t be the case if we made it seem more acceptable to show your body from a young age.
I know, you can say that we have sex shoved into our faces every other second of the day but that doesn’t seem the same. For one, it’s usually in the form of innuendo. Also, it’s usually in the form of advertisements, not in people all around us. Even then, people made a big stink about the Starbucks logo recently because it was changed to something along the lines of what they had in the ’70s with a shirtless mermaid. Maybe that’s the key. We need to start exposing bodies that aren’t so perfect on a regular basis. I think that would go a long way to help solve our strange love-hate relationship with sexuality. I would love to hear, from someone who has studied them a bit, how kids raised by nudists turn out as far as sexuality goes.
