Sharing nudity is lack of self respect and self esteem

A year ago, shared an opinion on nudity and this week, one of the top Ugandan comedian her nudes leaked. Some people judged her, others stood with her in this trial moment and of course everyone is entitled to his/her opinion on such public matters

Every day that passes by brings new ideas and items on both the social, political and academic fronts in our society

The fashion, entertainment industry ushers in a new craze per hour and our generation are quick to adopt anything seen on screen from the western world and the educated come out quickly to defend the vices on the pretext that ‘those are their rights’ its true that its your right to take your nudity and its okay to take it but are ready to protect it in public or ?

The concern today is the emergence of the nudity craze in our society and nakedness is paraded everywhere from the corporate offices, markets, social media to the Churches. It portrays disrespect to self and those around you

We are a laughing stock to the Europeans and Americans we copy from. If we believe being famous one must flaunt their nakedness, have we asked ourselves why no ‘Star’ came naked to attend the British Royal wedding a year ago or have you seen any STAR came naked to attend Patrick Idringi Salvador wedding?

Revelation 16:15 ESV. Behold, I am coming like a thief! Blessed is the one who stays awake, keeping his garments on, that he may not go about naked and be seen exposed!”

Don’t deceive yourself that sending your nudes or skimpy dressing to those that you think you in love will improve anything instead the person you call your best friend will use them to put you down and you’re simply telling all who see you that the product on display isn’t self selling but needs advertising to be noticed.

Lastly, take photos and share them with someone that you really sure that he/she truly loves you and respects your body

One of my role models, mentor replied me/reacted on the topic saying, Ife Piankhi,Creative facilitator, poet, visual artist, singer

‘@Frank thank you for your perspective. I don’t think nudity is the issue but how we perceive the female body. In political terms nudity was used as a form of resistance against injustice by African female freedom fighters. Currently advertising has sexualised the naked body in order to sell products. Sex sells. I think the body is beautiful but we also have to remember the context in which nudity is used” You are so right in analyzing the context”
