New Zealand, we need to talk.
For such a progressive country – first to split the atom and all that – we’ve still got some pretty archaic views on things.
This week alone, we’ve had headlines about a mum being asked to cover up while breastfeeding her child and a family shocked after spotting a group of naked swimmers in a public reserve.
Why are we so hung up on the unclothed human body?
Does any major trauma come from seeing a stranger’s intimate body parts?
If the answer is yes, you’ve really got to start asking yourself why.
The woman who spotted the naked swimmers in Taupō said she was “horrified” at the sight.
We need to get horrified at horrific things – and there’s no shortage of those around. Get horrified about child cancer, sexual abuse, climate change and the threat of deadly pandemics.
Nipples and penises should be the least of your worries right now.
