    Arresting people for having nude photos or art of young people is saying: God, You made a mistake in making young life. You should have made life to coming out of a woman to be fully grown 18 year old. Imagine an 18 year old baby. God knows what he is doing. Stop giving the impression that the nude body is bad to see.
