If You Have Nipples, America Doesn't Want You
Here we go again. Apparently, it's OK to blow up stuff in TV commercials (see Verizon's Michael Bay commercial) but OMFG, show a fleeting glimpse of a natural human body part and the country freaks to high alert, places a blindfold over the collective eyeballs of every kid in the country (nudity is bad!!) and launches the cause group machine.
Yes. This is America. Nudity is bad. Nudity is something to be shunned. Natural beauty? Screw that. Put a potato sack on! Cover that God-given beauty. Sex is bad. Sex dirty. Sex is nasty. Sex should never be thought about. Sex should be shunned.
Yes. This is America. A recently created commercial for Calvin Klein Secret Obsession featuring Eva Mendes has been shunned (yes, shunned!) by American networks because it contains a fleeting glimpse of Mendes' nipple.
Just think. If America put as much effort into glorifying the wonders of natural human beauty and the natural human behavior known as sex (with proper education) as it did glorifying violence, it's kind of a forgone conclusion, the country just might be a less uptight, more forgiving and happier...and maybe even less violent...place to live.
Who knows. Humans kill humans. Always have always will. Maybe now we'll just do it naked instead of wearing 100 pounds of combat equipment.
