If somebody showed their breast or genitals on tv outside of specified hours ( it varies in different countries but usually it is before 10 p.m. and 12 a.m. ) than it is normally being classified by law as porn and as a consequence of it the person may end up in prison. Quite often people are being shocked, disgusted and parents want to protect their children from seeing something like that. And I remember how my mother was trying at all costs to prevent me from seeing nudity on tv.
But what about the museums or theatre ? If we go to Louvre Museum or any other museum we can see pictures of nude people there, yet nobody makes a fuss about it. As a matter of fact people look at it and say: "wow... this is incredible" etc. But according to law this is also porn and Louvre museum should be heavily penalised for it especially because they allow it to be seen by children.
And what about the statues of naked bodies in Greece, Italy etc. ? What about the fountains with naked people who show their penises while "peeing" into to the water ? Or there is a multitude of statues of women exposing at least their breasts ? It is all allowed but when a woman shows her breast on the beach it is illegal and you will get in trouble with the police for it. And of course we cannot forget about all the nasty comments and judgmental looks of other people showing their utter disapproval and disgust.
WTF... it is all double standards and we make the judgement according to the situation and to our liking.
I forgive myself that I have allowed myself to be disgusted when I see naked people on the beach or other public places.
I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to define naked body as disgusting and dirty.
I forgive myself that I wanted to protect my children from seeing naked body because I have believed that it is bad and demoralizing for them.
I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to create laws which prohibit people to be naked in public places, beaches etc.
I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to define seeing naked body of a person in real life as disgusting while seeing the naked body painted by famous painter and shown in the museum I have defined it as beautiful and I don't have the same kind of reactions anymore.
I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to accept seeing exposed breast of a woman on the picture or of the statue as normal and beautiful while seeing exposed breast of a woman on the beach or any public place as disgusting and shocking.
I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to believe that I need to protect my children from seeing naked body because apparently according to my belief this is bad and demoralizing for them.
I forgive myself that I have not allowed myself to realize that I am creating double standards where I am judging naked body as disgusting while on other occasions the same naked body is being regarded by me as beautiful.
I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to believe that showing my naked body is bad and immoral.
I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to judge people who show their naked bodies as disgusting and immoral.
