Absolutely. I don't give a rat's ass what someone's sexual orientation is nor would a child even know that's an issue. My God-child is four and if any dude walked by him naked, gay or straight, he is going to find clothing by way of an EMS gown.<quoted text>
Public nudity is fine for those that accept it and don't have a problem with it but still it should be kept private between them because there are many people that don't agree with it and have their own personal reasons for doing so.
It seems like part of the discussion here has been about how Christians are accused of "pushing their beliefs or agenda" on others but in this instance i must point out that you're suggesting that people who agree with public nudity be allowed to push their agenda or beliefs against a population that disagrees with it. Pardon me, but your view sounds very much like a double standard to me.
I strongly believe that it should be up to the parents to decide how the child will be raised regarding nudity, or the birds and the bees or any other issue of a personal issue. Not some stranger on the street with a swinging Johnson or a bare va jay jay.
Quite frankly I could do without seeing it myself as most the population would not fall into the category of those I would be lining up to see naked. But if it was a private community of just adults or something, well, it isn't exactly going on my "Things to worry about" list. I have more important things going on and whatever floats your boat I guess if someone is a nudist.
But in an age where 5th graders are having sex in front of other students in the middle of class and chicks are blowing dudes for rides at lunch, and every pop-star looks and dresses like she is on her way to a porno shoot the last thing we need is children seeing people walk around naked. And under any circumstances it is just flat-out inappropriate for them to see an adult stranger naked.
Yes body-image is out-of-control where everybody is made to feel bad about themselves and if adults want to embrace the idea that they are comfortable in their bodies enough to be naked around one another then more power to them. Just keep it away from the kids. People's rights can't infringe on the right's of others. That's just the rules.
