Nudity and Related Vices

Nudity wouldn't be a problem in a world without pride or lust.

Bodies, as one of my art friends says often, are just bodies. She's absolutely right. It would be great if we lived in a world without lust. When we lust, we choose to make a body into a sexual object.

But there's another side to this. The "flaunt it if you got it" mentality turns our own body into an object we can wield for our own purposes. This expression of pride runs counter to the respect that modesty demands.

And that's what this is about, right? Love and respect for ourselves and for other people.

So put some clothes, dress nice, and let's keep learning together.
