have been “prepared” about puberty, is the injury totally absent? No, because

the instruction is lacking in an essential area. Words cannot communicate everywhere close
as efficiently as images can. You can talk all day to a lad about how organs or
to a girl about how breasts come in all sizes and shapes, but it won’t remove
the fear that their penis or breasts are abnormal. But if they have
opportunities to see organs and breasts in all their amazing assortment, the point
is driven home that their body is equally as ordinary and okay as anyone
else’s.
Kids are not allowed
to fill their totally natural interest when it is safe to achieve that. Adults
have sex hormones raging through their bodies. Prepubescent children do not.
When would be the greatest time of life to learn about human bodies?
Before kids have to
Begin dealing with sexual urges.
Yet, astoundingly, we
think the most terrible thing of all is to allow a child to see an adult naked.
What tragedy!
Instead, we force kids
to wait until they enter puberty. Subsequently they not only need to deal with their
Fascination driven by a natural and wholesome desire to become prepared, but also
driven by these brand new, almost overwhelming sexual urges. They get it all
dumped on them at once and are left alone to deal with it on their own.
Is it any wonder there is
sexual dysfunction in our society? Is it any wonder teen sexual activity and
pregnancy and venereal disease run rampant in our society?
Is this not true kid
abuse?
Make no mistake about it,
once kids reach puberty, they will start educating themselves, one
Manner or another. If parents or another adult authority figure does not help
them do it, they’ll do it on their own.
And all of US understand how they
will do it.
They will assemble
misinformation from friends as ignorant as themselves. They will develop
addictions to pornography. They will experiment with nudity and sex among
themselves, ignorant of the risks involved. And they will do it all with a
ghastly mental stew of sexual arousal, shame, guilt, and rebellion blended into
it.
Oh yes, this is much
better than enabling kids to experience nudity under http://nudism-life.com before their sexual hormones start to stream.
An grownup permitting a kid
to see them nude is child abuse? No, no. The law that criminalizes letting
a kid see an mature nude is child abuse.
Nudity that’s intended to
be shocking or sexual or endangering or lewd through the person’s intent
and conduct–now that’s child abuse. But officially defining the only
existence of nudity as lewdness or obscenity is an bad, archaic view that
must be stamped out.
Children are never educated
to accept the aging cycle of human beings. Everyone dreads getting old. We think
old bodies are ugly. We fear them. For God’s sake, cover them up! And lo and
behold, examine the youth-worshiping culture we now have. Coincidence?
Billions of dollars are
spent on make-up, clothes, even surgery, to try and pretend we are not getting
old. Why? Because we fear it. Why? Because we never see it.
Because we always conceal
our bodies from one another, we never get to see the natural aging life cycle of
human bodies. That which is hidden from us is mysterious and awful.
If we could just see
human bodies in all the various phases of aging on a regular basis, it would
be a familiar sight to us, a comfortable sight. Aging would be a natural thing,
not something to fight tooth and nail in anxiety.
Is it not mental maltreatment
to educate people to dread the natural life cycles of their own bodies?
Children, like all folks,
equate their bodies with themselves. They’re their bodies. If we instruct
them to be fearful and ashamed of their bodies (and we do), they are going to be embarrassed
of themselves. And so a rampant epidemic of self-loathing thrives in our
culture.
Especially our women. The
most amazing women on the planet still believe there’s something wrong with their
bodies.
Kids are killing
themselves over lousy self-image. The girl that purges or starves herself to
death because she can’t accept her body is blonde teen beach of the self-loathing that
anti-naked attitudes help to foster. The gang banger who carries a gun and kills
someone for “dissing” him is literally killing kids over self-esteem. “You
disrespect me, you perish.”
And where does this
Uncontrolled lack of self-esteem come from? The causes are complicated, but how can the
lifelong shame we feel over our own bodies not be a contributor?
Our luxury of concealment
nudity from each other may even be killing our kids. Never mind emotional

abuse. This is physical abuse of the most horrible kind. All because we don’t desire to
see a nude human body.
That is where the true
shame lies, not in our bodies!
Many children never get to
feel absolutely comfortable with the opposite sex and never get an acceptable
education on human bodies to fill their interest. Most kids will not
Bear this situation forever. If the adult community won’t meet their need
