Nudism and Body Shaming
Nudity – a few things come to mind when thinking about the topic. Society has shaped our minds into thinking the most obscure things about the human body. When thinking about the naked human body, some people think about obscenity. They say the naked body is something that should be “covered up.” They say it is never okay to expose yourself willingly.
However, you don’t hear people shaming those who show their body for specific purposes, such as supermodels, right? Those who have an amazing figure, beautiful skin, those people who dress half naked for advertisements or music videos, those things are considered okay.
Why can’t everyone be free to show their bodies the way that the supermodels do? Why is it such a crime to do so unless you’re in front of the camera? Why is there a negative stigma about nudity and nudism?
The natural human body is something to be embraced. People shudder at the idea of nudism. Last time I checked, we were all born into this world as nude babies. It’s adorable when you’re seven pounds, small and chubby. At that stage, some parents even photograph their children sleeping nude because of its beautiful and artistic nature. It’s beautiful, yes, but once that child grows into a fully developed adult, everything that was once seen by the eyes must be covered so that it may not be seen to the rest of the world.
