A mom has raked in controversy after she explained why she wants her sons to see her without clothes on.
Here's the full story...
Now, there are plenty of body positivity warriors out there.
Wanting to shut down the toxic beauty standards that society puts on women (and men.)
However, what if we could tackle this problem at an early age?
Wouldn't it be wonderful if children could grow up without any fear of being ridiculed for being outside of society's norm?
That's the kind of world we want.
If you remember back to when you were young, although not that long ago... wink wink. I guarantee the characters were mostly - if not all - white, straight, and thin.
And that's all fine and dandy.
But being bombarded with main characters that look nothing like you can have a negative effect on self-image, not to mention brew up some serious diversity issues.
It's good to teach kids about important things.
Like teaching children to love themselves and respect one another's differences, so they can hopefully grow up and spread that love to other children.
And this sort of body positivity is just what one mom wants to preach.
Though her methods have been a little controversial ...
In order to teach her kids to accept their bodies ...
She thinks it's important that they see her naked.
Safe to stay it's stirred up quite a reaction...

"Before they're exposed to boobs that are as round and firm as cantaloupes and pictures of taut, airbrushed, dimple-less butts -- I'm exposing them to a different kind of female body. Mine."
"I've never refrained from changing clothes in front of them, or leaving the door open when I shower, or nursing babies without a cover. Because I want them to see what a real female body looks like. Because if I don't -- and their first images of a naked woman are the impossibly perfect physiques in those magazines or those movies -- what kind of expectations will they have? And what woman could ever live up to them?"
"My flab is their one and only perception of the female body. And I want them to know that it's beautiful, even in its imperfection."
"I don't want to do them, or any women they might happen to see naked in the future, the disservice of telling them that saggy boobs are bad or that a little bit of flab is something to be ashamed of."
"Because while they're young, I want to plant the seed -- so that when they're older, and their wives say, 'I wish my thighs were smaller,' my sons can say, 'They're perfect just the way they are.'"
