Nude Blogging Day!

I recently came across a thread on a forum that asked the question, "If your children had to see one or the other in a movie, would you prefer them to see violence or nudity?"

I humbly submit that any morally sane person, given that choice, would prefer their children to see nudity, rather than violence. Yet, some people responding to the question stated they would prefer their children to see violence. Apparently, the myth that nudity can be equated to violence, or is even worse than violence, is still with us.

All of history shows that moral sanity does not come to a society without a struggle. Therefore, none of us can expect society to take a morally sane position on nudity unless we are willing to struggle out of our clothes each Monday to blog in the nude. The logic is irrefutable! All that remains is for you to participate in the rapidly growing Nude Blogging Movement today!

Don't you get me started!! I talk to my son endlessly about why I don't want him watching violent movies, and why nudity doesn't bother me in the least. And why I refuse to buy him anything having to do with violence, or shirts depicting violence, or instruments of violence. I can go on and on and on about how sick this society is for jumping out of their skins at the sight of human skin, but viewing violence as entertainment. Horrible!

Makita, darling, I'm begining to suspect you suffer from a severe and unusual case of moral sanity. Doesn't it at all concern you that your refussal to encourage violent behavior in your son might be construed as anti-social in this day and age?

That may be, but I'm more than happy to explain to all of his friends why I am so vehemently opposed to violence. I realize I have no control over what he does when he is not home (and I don't really want control over what he does), but not in my house.

Sadly, my son has an abusive biological father, who does encourage violence. It makes it all the more important to me to take a stand and stick to it.

By the way, is blogging in the nude on Wednesday nights ok?
