I show my kids nude pictures on the internet sometimes, because I think they're beautiful. We look at them, and talk about different body shapes, and the beauty of the pictures and stuff like that.
I was showing Vern this one site that I had shown the kids, where this Minneapolis based photographer took these beautiful nude portraits of women in their own homes. And I was showing Vern how beautiful these pictures were, and he was like, "You showed these to the kids?" And I was like, "Yeah, I show them stuff like this all the time."
("All the time" is actually an overstatement, with me just trying to be cute. I had only shown the kids one other artist before this... Spencer Tunick, who is famous for taking pictures of large groups of naked people. His stuff is really cool.)
So, I explained to Vern how I thought it was important for a kids to grow up seeing what a wide variety of normal women's bodies look like (because that seemed like a meaningful and important answer to give, when, in truth, my intention was just to show the kids something that I thought was neat). And he was like, "Okay."
