this is not a rant or a complaint, just suddenly made me thought that, why is nudity not suitable for minor, or why is it not something "acceptable" in general?

we were all born nude
we were most porbably "made" in the nude (hehe)

clothes were originally invented as protection against the weather, but over time, people get more and more "embarassed" about showing their natural self anymore. And now, nude itself is not allowed! Finally I've found something "negative" about "moving forward" LOL!

i think its because if you get something easily you lose the charm. :-)
Let the minors work for it, otherwise what is the fun.

Yeah, make them learn out to use search engines like the rest of us.

edit: ... yeah "learn how" or "find out how" feel free to use either phrase, or the combination I used ...

What I find funny is that most of the SC must be based in the United States, because in alot of places in the world nudity isn't as taboo.

Go to Britain and open up the newspaper. You'll find nudity. Page 6 anyone?

Then again, the United States is the most PC country in the world, to a fault.

Yea, its really hard to find porn on the internet. I think I was in something like first grade when I saw a playboy or something mild like that and in 3rd or 4th grade when I saw my first full blown porno. Its not like kids dont see it. Not to mention I didnt even have internet access in my house during a large chunk of that previously mentioned timeframe.

I found my dad's Penthouse collection at the tender age of 6. Fascinating stuff. Kept me occupied well into my teens.

Simply put ... mind control. The controlling factions have found, over time, it is far easier to control a populace if you control how they think. Rulers enlisting the 'state church', often supplanting it with another if it proved uncooperative. Often the priests being the real power. Simple mind games -- convince the populace you have control over some aspect of them and that it is far too valuable for them to ever be able to control it themselves and you have a populace of slaves.

The US is not PC, but prudish. Founded by small groups led by very dominate religious leaders (in general). So thoroughly indoctrinated that when an actual rulership took over they had to throw out the 'state church' as well. With the seperation of church and state, the state has turned to an alternative form of mass mind control -- psychiatry, in which we are taught we are too close to animals to be trusted naked around each other.

The only thing harder to stomach than those in control attempting to control the thoughts of the masses, is how greedily the masses let them. It would be so very sad if it wasn't so very bad.

Your right on this, Sexuality is much more open in the rest of the world, yet in the US violence is accepted no problem. I think the problem is in the US to many people are worried about sex and missing the big issue that degrade society. Yet the sad part is most people in the US are unopen (and have not traveled to anywhere else) to the rest of the world and pull the we are just better card. JMHO...

ok, maybe it's just me, but I think the more you forbid, the more tempting something becomes? What say you?

Never know - It might just work sometime :-/. Okay, I know history is littered with examples that pretty much prove what you say but don't let facts get in the way of a perfectly good idea. :-)
