We're having a great conversation on Facebook today addressing the question of what is so threatening to people about the naked body. One of the participants posted the following quote which made me laugh outloud because I perceive it as so true!
"Take off all your clothes and walk down the street waving a machete and firing an Uzi, and terrified [American] citizens will phone the police and report: 'There's a naked person outside!' " (Mike Nichols)
And here's a picture I found on Google when I googled "Naked man with machine gun." Notice who actually has the guns!
