Your human body … is not a crime

MANY SOCIAL PLATFORMS CONSIDER YOUR NAKED BODY OBCENE
My husband says, "It's just Facebook, hunny"...

But it is not just Facebook. This is the society that we live in. This is the climate of judgment and shame that you encounter when you share images of human nudity as art.

It's punishable for you to share images from classic works of art or a figure drawing class or even a mother breastfeeding her child. Censorship on Facebook is just a reflection of the bigger battle you face when you draw, paint or photograph a naked human being.

We do not create this body of art to shock, offend, or arouse a mindless lust. We create so that all of us may come to see our shared humanity as a miraculous work of art.

What do you think? Is your naked body obscene? Is it a crime to share artistic images of naked humanity?
Reclaim your experience of human beauty!
