Mine wasn't even psoted in a "look at me!" sort of way. It was an example to the girls and women recovering from eating disorders to see a vital, alive, not-quite-perfect-but-still-lovely body and that *I*, a person who once had an ED, could look at myself and say "I'm beautiful just the way I am." However, everyone thought I was just posting photos of myself in my underwear and wanted to make fun of me.
Now, about the prude comments. Beforewisdom, you are off-base.
People are afraid of what they don't understand or what threatens their belief, especially beliefs that give them psychological security.
Ditto. IMHO it is sick belief system that finds our very own bodies and how we reproduce.......our very own nature to be obscene.
I am a prude. I don't believe in casual sex, I don't believe 2 months is an acceptable time before you get naked with someone, I don't believe in going to a park to have anonymous sex, I don't agree with treating sex like a sneeze, and I don't believe in having sex with someone until you are ready to commit to spending your life with that person.
I don't feel threatened by people who do this; I just disagree with it. we all have things and activities we believe are private vs public. Bowel movements and sex are things that are private to my beliefs and I find anyone who deviates from that to hold a lower dating or sometimes even friendship standard. Likewise, FR (and I will use him b/c he's talked about it so often) holds anyone who deviates from a vegetarian standard to hold a lower dating standard*.
*There was a time when I saw a difference between these sorts of example, but I've since changed my opinion.
