"Babies"

Nudism raises lots of questions about body care. It is a healthy way of life in many ways, but it also presents certain concerns that we don't face when clothed. Here you can ask all your questions, and post about the health benefits of nudism / naturism.<P>Only Residents and higher may post here.

"Babies"

Postby robbbie » Fri May 07, 2010 4:57 pm

Perhaps you've seen the ads for the new movie "Babies".


Did you notice that it's rated PG? Why would a movie about babies be rated PG? Well, there is a warning that goes along with the PG rating: "Cultural and maternal nudity throughout". (Check out the ad yourself)



What's so offensive about seeing naked babies that there has to be a warning?

Well, everyone knows how offensive those baby butts can be.

Culturally breast feeding was fine as long as it was "natives" in other lands doing it. The offensiveness only occurs if it is Americans doing it..... <gasp>!

'Must be those white, pasty, "never-seen-the-sun", American breasts that are SOOOO offensive. :argh:

However, the same seems to hold true for white, pasty, "never-seen-the-sun", nude American bodies. :gross:

We can see totally nude, well tanned natives from Africa or South America and network television, during prime time. But just dare to show a totally nude white boy or girl (man or woman), and you'll have the authorities knocking down your door. :argh:

Yeah, growing up, if I wanted to see naked bodies (like any American boy), I would turn to National Geographic. Nudity was fine - but they never had pictures of the nude beaches of the world. Again, as long as it is "native" nudity, then all is fine and dandy. But European nudity was out of the question.

Similarly, there are denominations that won't ordain women - unless they are a missionary to some "native" tribe - then they can be ordained..... Me thinks that it is that old racism thing cropping up again.

I do recall National Geographic showing pictures of a park in Germany where many were enjoying the sun au naturale around 1980. Also an article about Australia that showed several people suntanning naked (face down) as a group of tourists passed by on camels.

I was out of high school by the mid-1970's. So by the time the 1980's rolled around I could certainly buy other sorts of magazines if I was looking for nudity. Though I never did. However, there were other sources of such things (unfortunately for my spiritual health) at work, college, etc.
