The nudity I think scares the nation as a whole because we are taught that nudity is a bad thing. But what I really learned was that when it was packaged the way I was, with no high heeled shoes or long hair or spinning around a pole or popping it, people have a hard time processing it when its not packaged for the consumption of male entertainment. They don’t know what to do with it or how to place it or what to say because surely a woman can’t be intelligent enough to be making a point. It has to be for publicity or for sale.
