I’m Not A Prude, But….. (Part III)

Anyone walking through Times Square knows how busy and crowded the streets are. Among the hustlers and costumed characters begging for your attention are women wearing nothing but a thong and strategically placed body paint.

There is a time and a place for such attire (or lack thereof). Times Square, teeming with tourists and young kids is not the time or the place.

You can call me a prude if you like, the Naked Cowboy is just as scantily clad as these women.  I am not a prude, I enjoy the human body as much as anyone does.

But I’ve said this before and I will say it again. When a young girl encounters an adult women earning a paycheck by wearing nothing but a thong and body paint and taking pictures with strangers, what message does she take in? In the same vein, what message does a young boy take in?

I am not a prude, but I believe that these people should not be in the middle of Times Square. Not that Times Square should be converted to the New York City version of Disney World’s main street, but there is a time and a place for everything. Times Square is neither.
