The Body Respect Petition

Whereas the human body is essential to human life and as such should be held in the highest regard, Whereas recognition of the inherent dignity and worth of all parts of the human being is foundational to building healthy self-esteem and confidence, Whereas disregard and contempt for the human body has defiled the conscience of mankind by equating mere nudity with indecency or offense assaulting our value as humans, Whereas equating mere nudity with indecency and obscenity results in body shame and self alienation, Whereas societies where nudity is accepted have lower rates for sexual perversions, abuse, and teen pregnancy promoting social progress, Whereas a common understanding of respect and acceptance for the nude human body is of the greatest importance for the full realization human dignity, I therefore petition for the full repeal of any laws that equate mere nudity with public indecency. I support and petition for living in a society where simple nudity is a respected and protected legal human right.


This petition is sponsored by working to promote healthy body acceptance and respect.
