I walk around naked in my house, not all day, but I sleep naked and I'll get out of bed and get my morning routine started naked. I don't get dressed until I'm out of the shower. My daughter, 12, prefers to sleep clothed but will walk around naked after the shower. My family (my grandma, mother, aunts) are all the same. I see no shame in the body in it's natural form. Because of that, we don't view nudity as sexual, unless I'm gonna get me some. Anyway, last night I was watching a movie with a friend and our kids (both 12 yo girls), I'm not big on censorship but I don't like Hannah to watch gore or violent things. The movie wasn't so bad in violence but had one scene where the female character exposed her breasts (not a sex scene). Anyway, the violence scenes pop up and I make Hannah turn her head, my friend allows her child to watch. No biggie. Then comes the boob scene, I say nothing to Hannah but my friend turns her child and says 'uh, Amy, are you going to let Hannah watch this?' Just shocked. All I could think was 'they're boobs, we all have them, why are we making the shameful? You just let your kid see someone get shot and I'm the weird one?'
Am I the weird one?
