We are supposed to be a progressive and enlightened society...then why do we still have a hard time dealing with simple and casual nudity? People seem to be unable to seperate nudity and sexuality in their minds. Fine art nude photography and art is still ***********. And anything that shows a person under the age of 18 in any stage of undress is child *********** or child abuse. If a person just likes to be naked, then they are automatically "up to no good", some sort of sexual predator or fiend, or in dire need of mental help. We have become a culture that is alot more tolerant of open and blatant sexuality than of just being simply nude. It seems we'd rather see acts of violence against one another than see another person's bare body. We have even gotten to where we "dictate" who should and can be nude and who cannot, because we are so harshly judgemental toward appearance, shape, and size. We seem to be more tolerant of nudity if it is sexualized, or used for 'shock value' and exhibitionism....I guess that is because it backs up our fears, sense of shame, and beliefs in the 'sinfulness' of it in our minds. Come on people....nudity is NOT dirty, sinful, shameful, disgusting, sexual (in and of itself), a 'sickness', lewd, or anything of the sort. It can be made to be those things....but that is all dependent on what is in the minds and hearts of those who use it or see it.
