Does society have double standards about male/female nudity?

Postby TalkingPoint » Thu Aug 03, 2006 6:51 pm

As far as female nudity is concerned, society has double standards.

What do you think?

Oh, that's a dirty lie and you know it! Women are not interested in naked men. To a woman sex is just a weapon!

No, I am not. Nudity is an art. There's nothing pornographic about it at all. Look at the Medieval times/Renaissance arts. It involved a lot of nudity, and it was considered as an art. Human body is a beautiful art, with or without clothes. Therefore, why is it beautiful if a girl is nude, but it's not the same for a guy?

Because he doesn't like guys :lol: :lol: I do, however, but I would never say that a feminine body is ugly, on the contrary. Nudity is a natural thing; in part when we put on our clothes every day it's like we are hiding a part of ourselves. No, nudity is not ugly or negative or porn (porn is a different concept, who said that nudity is like porn?).

Yeah, that's why it's a double standard. Media are made for men. A lot of men are like him. They are not comfortable seeing another guy nude. They think it's gay or sexual or something. I think the gay one is the one who get turns on by seeing another man nude :twisted: .

There was a news on yahoo,

News

Some of those don't-have-a-life people got scared to see that picture on a magazine. They called it pornography. Can you believe it? Some Americans just wear their underwears too tight. :roll:

Naked men are artistic, only so far until they have smaller than mine. Otherwise it's all real uglyness and horrible porn... far away from art!

Offensive and disgusting? :shock: Those who think that just don't know what life is about. Have they never seen a mother breast-feeding her baby? How can that woman say that the picture was offensive for her (I bet she doesn't have any children) or that her husband was uncomfortable with it? (I am sure he was lying). What planet do we live in?

Those women probably didn't breastfeeding their children, and I think their husbands are gay. Either this or those women have a very conservative and submissive mind. Some men are scared of BF. Not because of the nudity but it's because of the action itself reminds them about childbirth, responsibilities of a Father, family, etc. Therefore, those uptight women were probably afraid that this picture would remind their men about all those things.

I guess female nudity on magazines are okay with them because their men are okay with it. However, when it comes to something as natural as BF, which reminds them of a man's responsibility, they think it's offensive and disgusting because their men wouldn't feel comfortable with it. I wonder what they said when they saw those nude pictures of pregnant Britney. Now that I think is disgusting since she looked so ugly in them. :twisted:

Well... I hope "Nudity" can be something pornographic as well. Or, at least, something erotic and even perverse and vicious.
