Man the eye-level thing just made it tens times worse! Yeah that is disturbing on so many levels. Can you imagine trying to do just every day activities with genitals right in your face? It would make for a funny comedy probably for the movies but is no lashing matter in real life.<quoted text>What adults should consider is that their privates will be at face level (or very close to it) to most children. Not many of us adults would enjoy asking for a drink or a taco from someone whose genitals are in our face. Kids already don't get enough respect as human beings without having to converse with adults' genitals in every social situation.
When my God-child sleeps over he is in his room and I sleep in mine in my boxers. Of course i put pants on before leaving my room but I always use the bathroom with my shift off. Just a habit i guess. Well my parents told me when he was at their house he insisted on using the bathroom with his shirt off and wouldn't go any other way because that is how I do it. Well that is endearing is shows how easily influenced they are. And when I think of pedophiles like Jerry Sandusky at Penn State and how he took advantage of a situation that caused someone to already be undressed like the showers, this made me think of how much easier an abuser might be able to molest a child if a child thinks it is normal for an adult to be around them naked. Or how much easier an adult could convince them to get naked.
I am no prude. My life through college was pretty much a pursuit of one-night stands. But I was also in my 20's obviously. And I could go back and talk to myself even at that age I would tell myself stop drinking and doing drugs and sleeping around and find someone you want to be with because not you are going to get real sick of this at one point but everybody pays the piper eventually too.
I am getting off-track but point is even for adults the loose morals isn't a good thing but adults are adults and they can do what they want. But we have to give these kids a fighting chance. We can't open them up to abuse. We have to teach them to respect their bodies and to respect other people and see them as more that a way to get a sexual release. Even without abuse, a message that might get lost with genitals in their face all day. JMO
