to Fig Leaf or Not that beautiful body?
Have you seen the latest article in the New York Times called When Do They Need A Fig Leaf??. Here is a link if you haven't seen it yet. http://www.nytimes.com/2009/07/16/garden/16nudity.html?_r=2
It sure bring up a lot of the intense emotional duality that exists on the subject of children being nude. This article brings out a fairly broad spectrum of entrenched beliefs. Wow.. it makes me wonder how do we get past this? It also makes me think that this is all just a silly preoccupation. Like we could be solving world peace or global warming or helping others towards enlightenment you know?
Perhaps the real solution is to see it for what it is, rather than get enraged that my viepoint doesn't match that of someone else. All it really is is that they have "hang ups" as the article says. Some people just frankly are VERY uncomfortable with naked children around.
Here is a link to the letters to the editor too. http://www.nytimes.com/2009/07/23/garden/23letters-NUDEORNOT_LETTERS.html?_r=1&emc=eta1
