Ultraconservative Protestants were kicked out of England centuries ago hundreds of years before the founding of the United States and have been flavoring the environment here ever since.
It seems ultimately the net result is that England is mostly atheist with little church attendance and the United States is one of the most churched societies in the West with many of those churches being fundamentalist Christian ones a large minority of the total.
The fundamentalist Christian ones as well as the Catholic ones regard all nudity as immoral and to be avoided.
That is one reason why all nudity is banned in the media in America except pornographic nudity which is heavily regulated and is only available on a paid basis porno magazines premium porno cable TV channels and porn movies at theaters that only show porn movies or video rentals from porno shops.
The only reference point most Americans have is porn.
So even people like Mark Zuckerberg founder of Facebook get it dead wrong.
Hi I am a person born in Canada of German parents live in the states have been to Germany several times and am fluent in the language.
I think Germany has a much more natural and humane environment.
But America and to some extent Canada are the way they are.
The mentality is so deeply ingrained here among the majority of the population that I do not think it is ever going to change.
But Hollywood has to find some way to titillate for ratings so it uses violence instead. The religious conservatives have railed against that for decades as well have forced it out of TV but not entirely out of movies. And it also shows up in the news.
So violence has become very acceptable or at least tolerated but nudity is regarded as a cardinal sin.
Decades ago when violence was more prevalent even on TV and I was visiting in Germany people there actually asked me why there was so much violence in the media in "the land of the free" but no nudity was allowed. They said to me that they thought it should be the other way around would be a lot healthier like it is in Europe. I thought so to and still think so. They were very confused and wondered how America could be so screwed up. I did not have a good answer for them other than the above. They said they were glad they lived in Germany instead of "the land of the free".
But then fundamentalist Christian religion does not exist in continental Europe the way it did in England and now does in America and to some extent Canada.
Even American news anchors have said in recent years that nudity violates American sensibilities (of the majority of the population). Since the news anchors are dependent on ratings (TV news in America has commercials) they cant risk it.
Intimations of nudity on broadcast TV and in print media are allowed. Not actual nudity. In other words egging people on.
In other words the worst possible combination.
And people have no active clue as to the effects.
But I am convinced it is why we have so many rapists here convicted or otherwise.
If I could live in Germany I would but there are reasons I am not doing so. That is a separate discussion.
To say the environment in America Canada England is different from continental Europe is putting it mildly.
