A recent trend on television has individuals who are completely nude posing for photos or answering questions from curious youngsters about their bare bodies.
A show in the Netherlands featured adult transgenders who appeared in the nude in front of pre-teens to allow them to make comments about their naked bodies.
The program, titled “Gewoon Bloot” (or “Simply Naked” in English), features nude people being questioned by youngsters aged 10 to 12 about various body parts, including double mastectomies and vaginoplasty.
The Dutch public network NOS has said that “Simply Naked” is intended to promote body acceptance and provide youngsters with a realistic perspective of the human body, despite the show’s scathing criticism before its March 21 premiere.
One transgender informed the kids they were “euphoric” following their operation to change their gender.
The woman said she woke up and realized her breasts were gone. It resembled her ideal, made sense, and reflected how she felt.
The transgender experience, according to another participant, might be only a sensation, but one can also take action.
According to DutchNews.nl, Dutch MP Tunahan Kuzu termed the performance “ridiculous,” urging his social media followers to write to broadcaster NPO to prevent the show from airing.
Thierry Baudet, a conservative Dutch lawmaker, claimed it almost encourages pedophilia.
Head of the Dutch Conservative Protestant Party (SGP), Kees van der Staaij, said his party would bring the subject up in Parliament because the program is abnormal and shouldn’t become standard.
On a British program called “Naked Education,” adults disrobe and stand nude in front of teenagers and preteens. The first episode aired on Tuesday, and the show’s producers have been touting it as an opportunity to normalize all body shapes, celebrate our uniqueness, and break down prejudices.
