Munich Legalizes Public Nudity, Wake up and take notice America

I love this article about Munich Germany.  Munich has officially legalized public nudity by creating six designated "nudist zones" throughout the city.  Oh my gosh, I can hear the uptight Americans saying things like, 'What about the kids, don't they care that it will screw them up'?  Or, 'I don't want to see a bunch of ugly naked people running around, thank god we don't do that'.  And I'm an American, but I obviously am not one of the uptight puritans that think seeing a naked body is somehow harmful.

Why can't Americans wake up and realize that public nudity is not harmful to anyone.  

Many European countries get it and are way less prudish than we are, and they aren't screwed up over it.  We need to get over this unreasonable fear of naked bodies.  It's Unhealthy to have this fear, causes so many to have body issues, and only hurts kids by making them more curious about naked bodies forcing them to sneak around and get their information from places like the internet, porn videos, etc, instead of getting to see that nudity is not shameful, or some mysterious thing they aren't supposed to know anything about.  

In fact, hiding our naked bodies only creates problems.  We are all raised to believe their is something so embarrassing and shameful about being seen nude.  And the only ones we see showing off their bodies are the often Photoshopped models in magazines which leads so many of us to grow up with an unrealistic view of what our bodies should look like.   

I don't have time for a long post, so I'm just going to leave it at this for right now.  I applaud Germany for creating a place where people can safely go to enjoy the city, and the great outdoors without clothes.  I applaud them for sending a message that nudity is not harmful, sinful or shameful.  I dream of the day the US wakes up and does the same, but alas, I doubt I'll ever see it in my lifetime.
