    In an effort to reassure his fans, Radcliffe promises to wave his magic wand.

    :rofl: It concerns me when it's the parents who seem unable to distinguish his character from who he really is. I suggest simply not taking their 9-year-old to see the play if this bothers them. :rolleyes: And, yeah, like they won't take the kid to see future Harry Potter movies if the kid is that into them...I'd like to see them explain why he can't see the movie (sorry, kiddo, but the actor that plays Harry Potter took all his clothes off in public, so now you can't see the movie). :rofl:

    Do they think his career should just end when the books and movies run out?

    Its not as if the act of nudity was a public offence either since it was deemed necessary by the author of the play to convey whatever message they were trying to convey. Plus one has to pay to see the production and if you know the play has nudity in it that offends you then don't pay to see it.

    I just worry for a boy of that age with all his hormones raging that his act of public nudity doesn't take a turn for the worse. :rolleyes:

    Why are we not allowed to smack parents?

    Jeez! And it's a naked girl that is with him in that scene if I remember correctly! But it's such a huge production he's done it a million times probably.

    Speaking of smacking parents, a few days ago there was one about a 7th grade health teacher who got relieved because he started the sex ed class by having kids draw genitalia on the blackboard. http://www.usatoday.com/news/education/2007-01-27-teacher_x.htm

    At least not all the parents are that dense:

    Think of it this way: if Radcliffe was a girl, this wouldn't be such a great deal, would it? :devil: :smile:

    Double standards in Western society again.Now,I'm going to digress a little by a rethorical question:
    What has happend with known phrase "Make love ,not War?
    Stays just a phrase ,and nothing else.
    On TV ,in newspapers,magazines you can see every day explicite pictures of humans killing each other :Blood everywhere.But when it comes to a nudity or 'God forbid' explicit sex between two person that's just 'awful',don't show that to our kids.:yuck:
    But let's face the paradox logically :What' worse :The utter violence with deaths as outcome,or natural sexual activities?

    I've never understood how sexuality could offend anyone. Surely its a natural process that can be discussed rationally by adults or portrayed in plays or any other similar medium without everyone going crazy because somebody is naked.

    Especially parents. Surely they got over whatever their hang-ups about it were long enough to conceive the child they are afraid might discover it for themselves one day. :rolleyes:

    Welcome to sexual suppression by society.

    Making babies is a secret. The parents don't want you to know.

    And I'm sure this is the start of his nude scenes in movies.

    You see the problem is that the older we get, the less found we are of nudity; and for good reason!

    Speak for yourself:wink: :biggrin:

    I've formed the impression that alot of US citizens are a little prudish about nakedness, probably the puritan influences :smile: in most countries in Europe you'd practically have to have sex with a pool table to raise an eyebrow,

    "Oh sex with a horse" ....."what sort of horse is it, pony? Or shire horse?"

    "Don't know?" *shrug* :tongue2:

    Er I think it probably would, but in an entirely different way. :wink:

    Well I must say, and this is not on account of any nudity, it seems well worth missing. If being mentally ill is having passion, I'm glad and greatly thankful to be unpassionate.
