The world is going naked and women are leading the way! What was considered a social inhibition and discomfort generations ago is now the norm and ‘in thing’! What was practiced in private clubs, restricted beaches and conclaves is now paraded in street shows and carnivals.
Nudity has become a philosophy, a culture, a political movement and by current trend, a religion! Called nudism or naturism, the philosophy propagates and defends the practice of private and public, i e, social nudity; the freedom of nakedness and a special female variety known as topfreedom or, toplessness!
Interestingly, among other principles, naturism/nudism teaches that there is no difference between man and animals! Meaning, if your dog can stroll in the park without panties, why can’t you do same and why should anyone condemn or question you?
Whether, as a philosophy or, in sports, entertainment, fashion, recreation, social and porn media, etc; the woman of today leads the pack in thin clothing and body exposure. The male runner wears shorts and boxers while his female counterpart wears G-strings and contraptions that barely cover her vital parts!
Far be it from us to condemn anybody’s chosen life-style! We are not competent to judge our fellow humans who like us, stand before and at the mercy of a higher, impartial and inflexible Will of the Almighty!
We may however, mention an irony! This clothes-shy modern woman would hardly imagine truly noble women like Mother Teresa and Indira Gandhi in public clad in bikini! She would definitely be shocked beyond words if Her Majesty the Queen were to roll out her bike and join the World Nude Bike Ride in London or step out of Buckingham Palace topless. That would be abominable, condemnable and unbefitting of a queen and royalty! Yet, same cannot be said of the modern woman who in her own right is a noble woman.Is she not? Or, is it a case of what is good for the goose, is only good for the goose?
Mother Teresa, Indira Gandhi, Queen Elizabeth 11 and their likes will not walk naked in public not because of their piety, office or royalty but because they bear within a treasure, a jewel and seal of true womanhood. This treasure is not restricted to any class, race, religion or, creed but, could be found among women in every walk of life: in the milk girl, the struggling mother, the chamber maid, unsullied youth, the chief executive, up to the corridors of political power. This jewel is— The Sense of Shame! This is what defines the womanhood in a woman!
A woman who has no sense of shame does not deserve to be called a woman and, a woman’s sense of shame is a reflection of her spiritual worth in Creation!
……so, when the modern woman drops her clothes in public without qualms or throws all moral caution to the wind, she is only displaying the lowly condition of her soul. It shows that she has stepped out of her lofty estate both in soul and body. The body is no longer a temple for the honor and worship of the Most High!
The revered vessel, queen and angel has descended so low as to dance naked in the village square!
You can then understand the admonition in the old saying:
“When the gods want to destroy a man they first make him mad but, when they want to destroy a woman, they make her shameless”
