"Bare Brained Idiocy", or is it Bare Breasted Phobia?
"A teacher who takes a field trip to the state capitol and suddenly notes the bare breasted woman in the artwork in the rotunda can be accused of recklessly exposing students to nudity.
Think it's far-fetched? The lead proponent of this legislation is the American Family Association in Kansas which has been leading an effort to force the removal of a sculpture of a bare-breasted woman from a public arboretum in Johnson County, going so far as to successfully petition to impanel a grand jury on the issue."
Are those folks worried about my losing control of my inhibitions and assaulting someone or are they worried that they won't be able to control their own libido when exposed to such tempting visual reality?
It's all Eve's fault. She took a bite of the apple and seduced Adam into tasting it. That account of man's fall from grace has plagued man's relationship with his fellow human beings and God, since time began.
Beautiful is beautiful, whether it is a naked rose petal or a naked human body. God created both and endowed man with the ability to see that beauty. I envy the artist's ability to portray that beauty on canvas or stone.
The discrimination issue is something else! Sanctimonius self righteousness allows us to feel obliged to discriminate according to our own standards, and protect others from their inability to make decisions on their own. We all admit to being sinners, but your sins are worse than mine, therefore I'll protect you from yourself.
