    Give me a break, nudity is associated with sexuality. When you are an adult, you can choose whether to expose yourself and to whom. A child can't, so that's why they should not be exposed. End of story.

    Irrevelant. My views are a general consensus and you know it. Everyone knows you can't run out naked as it makes you vulnerable and people will consider that an invitation. That's one of the reasons scantily clad women get so much flak.

    There are a lot of communities where scantily clad women are the norm. There are also a lot of scantily clad women on beaches.

    And since I disagree with your views, they cannot be a consensus. But your avoidance is telling.

    I've already discussed mine. I don't espouse fantasy opinions.

    SAM where does this need to make things personal come from ?
    Why do you suggest we have screwed up views of sexuality, while we are only saying that parents need to be careful because of pedophiles ?

    Really? So you go to work only in a negligee and a thong? You've never heard of cases of the woman being stigmatized in rape or sexual harassment cases due to her dress? Right or wrong, nudity is associated with sexuality. The positive aspect is that you get to share something personal and intimate with the one you choose. That's why people prefer not to be nude in public.

    What you aren't admitting is your own inhibitions. I DOUBT you go out in public nude. I demand you expose yourself considering you seem to give flak to those who don't want to.

    Women are stigmatised in some countries for wearing a head cover.

    Does sexualising your child, teach your child to sexualise children? So what have you achieved? Except for propagation of the same thing you claim to abhor?

    Just look at the way some children CHOOSE to present themselves in some Western countries. While fully clothed.

    Is this another deep rooted I hate the US argument SAM? or do you really think that there are no podphiles in eastern culture as well ?

    What does this have to do with posting naked pics of children?

    Would you want someone taking pics of you and posting them without your permission? A child is not aware of the dangers of what's out there, that's why it's the parent's responsiblity to look out for their welfare and respect them.

    You could say that about anything related to a child. As for dangers, the effects of parenting are the most significant for any child.

    And you are totally and erroneously attaching naivete and innocence of sexuality of the child as being protection from predators. That's unrealistic.

    Why is avoidance telling? Why do you want to know all the personal details of our lives? and why should we tell you? You only twist them around later and use them in some perverted way against anybody who doesn't have the same view as you.

    I'm talking about sexualising children. There are pedophiles everywhere, but not every parent is sexualising their children as a remedy to pedophilia.

    And I gave the example of some Western countries because thats where I have seen it. I actually conducted anthropometric measurements on some US children (I have also done this in the ME and in India). The difference in attitude is enormous. Seven year olds are sexually aware, are considering dating, giggle about boyfriends, wear makeup and jewelry, have body shape concerns.
