Police shut down photo exhibition of naked women because they’re too ‘indecent’ for display in public square

A photo exhibition of naked women aimed at promoting positive body image in Copanhagen has been shut down by police for being too ‘indecent’.

Danish nudist photographer and artist Mathilde Grafström had planned the display of her ‘Female Beauty’ collection for Copenhagen’s Nytorv square, but police have denied her permission saying the photos are ‘offensive’.

Speaking to Denmark’s TV 2 she said, ‘I take my photos to show young women that they are more beautiful than they think. I show the woman that she is beautiful, and that way I can help her to accept herself.’

    Although I think this was really canceled to accommodate Muslums sensitivities, I’d rather not see public areas displaying naked people either.

    If they are decent enough to display in public, why then would the Daily Mail black out the naughty bits?

      Her boobs aren’t big enough for the Daily Mail to show.

    Truly most women are incapable of accomplishing anything with their clothes on.

    • Have you ever read George Eliot?

      • El Martyachi

        In fairness, she could’ve penned nude.

      • BillyHW

        Did you seriously reach back 150 years to find the last woman who accomplished something without taking off her clothes?

        • Oh, I could probably come up with some more recent examples. It’s just that I was beating myself up yesterday or the day before because I’ve never really read Middlemarch. Inexcusable in someone as pretentious as myself not even to have perused the Cliff’s Notes.

          Have you ever seen Woody Allen’s Zelig? Neither have I, as it happens, but I could summarize the themes.

            I hear Lena Dunham is pretty good.

    Cheering. That is a very attractive girl.

    The Danes are doing well denying benefits to rich migrants, not so well on the free speech front.

    Ah yes the SMVS (sudden moral value syndrome) which we have in Toronto as well. It seems to only affect Liberals and the Police .

    Child-abuse and sexual predator laws that are Federal Laws only get enforced on which group the Liberals choose .
    $90.000.00 a year to be a guard for quasi-pedophiles in public , there’s a spot to save money from the budget on top of getting rid of the Parade vehicles .

      Why on earth would the Wynne government want to save money? That’s crazy talk!

    Danes love walking around in public, nude. So this is weird.
