Published: pm, Tue. An Artesia man is facing a variety of charges after traversing the community naked over the course of two days. Artesia Police Department officers were dispatched just after 5 a. Friday to Artesia General Hospital in reference to a male individual running around naked. The subject, later identified as Cesar Jimenez, 38, a transient individual, had been admitted to AGH Thursday after an initial instance of indecent exposure.
How would people react if you went about your daily routine naked? The penis is pixelated, to reduce your chances of spending a night in jail as a genuinely naked man. When I wore mine on the bus from Henderson to Downtown Las Vegas, the reactions ranged from murmured laughter to dismissive eye rolls to bizarre acceptance. By far the best reactions were the passengers too immersed in their cell phones to notice me boarding the bus and slowly creeping up on them, positioning my censored junk at their eye level. Their perseverance in not acknowledging the naked a-hole in their midst was, if nothing else, admirable. Maybe we live in an age where it's impossible to be shocked anymore, where a naked guy on the bus is just another freak clamouring for our attention, easily ignored.
Nudity , or nakedness , is a state of being in which a human is not wearing clothing or is not covering the genitals. Nakedness was the natural state of human beings in the tropical climates where they first evolved and continues to be the norm in many isolated indigenous societies during the 21st century. The modern understanding of nudity is culturally complex due to different meanings given various states of undress in differing social situations. In any particular society, nudity is defined in relation to being properly dressed, not in relation to the specific body parts exposed. For humans, nakedness and clothing are connected to many cultural categories such as identity , privacy , social status and moral behavior. In Western societies , there are two contradictory cultural traditions relating to nudity.
Clothing laws vary considerably around the world. In general, in most countries, there are no laws which prescribe what clothing is required to be worn. However, the community standards of clothing are set indirectly by way of prosecution of those who wear something that is not socially approved. Those people who wear insufficient clothing can be prosecuted in many countries under various offences termed indecent exposure , public indecency or other descriptions. Generally, these offences do not themselves define what is and what is not acceptable clothing to constitute the offence, and leave it to a judge to determine in each case. Most clothing laws concern which parts of the body must not be exposed to view; there are exceptions. Some countries have strict clothing laws, such as in some Islamic countries. Other countries are more tolerant of non-conventional attire and are relaxed about nudity. Many countries have different laws and customs for men and women, what may be allowed or perceived often varies by gender. Separate laws are usually in place to regulate obscenity , which includes certain depictions of people in various states of undress, and child pornography , which may include similar photographs of children.
