wesv saidHow do you feel about people who think everything is porn and hence bad? I have encountered people my age group (20s) who would look at work from Michelangelo and say "ew that's porn." Actually, ew, it's art. It gets so annoying when people make a big deal over being "naked" [with a childish voice].
It would appear that the US in general has shifted its ideology when it comes to nudity, specifically modesty. Countless number of RJ stories on how, pre 1980 conservative movement, nudity, especially male, was OK, not a problem. Stories from boys requirement swimming naked, gang style open public showers, walking nude in a men's locker room, high school shower after PE requirement, college level naked events, many state wide nude beaches, including parents with their naked kids.
The question remains though, is it the fault of gay men and lesbians, more of us, more of us coming out or is it the fault of conservative straight people, their paranoia, fear or homophobia? Liberals appreciate nudity as art, conservatives don't.
Parts of Europe have never had a problem with adult nudity, men or women, nothing has changed over the years here. Why did America become so uptight? I still blame the 1980, start of the conservative movement, that has corrupted todays young minds about nudity, conservatives created this modesty and liberals continue to fight it. So yes, I think feelings about nudity is split right down the political fronts, which is unfortunate for the future of our country.
