A Danish comedian is in hot water this week after he posted a photo of himself naked in a bathtub with his daughter.
Danish comedian Torben Chris explained that it all started when, “Someone told me that he had been accused of pedophilia by a stranger because he bathed with his two-year-old daughter.”
Another person told Chris he had been accused of having pedophiliac “urges” when he posted a photo of a French braid down his 11 year-old daughter’s bare back.
Determined to make a point, Chris posted a photo of his own, but it didn’t go so well for him…
According to Mad World News, Chris captioned the photo:
Listen: children and adults can be naked together.
There is nothing wrong with a father who washes his daughter’s bottom and vagina when she’s a child. On the contrary, it is bloody disgusting if nobody does it, and unfair if only the mother does it. If we couldn’t stand to see each other naked we’d be born with clothes on.
Nudity with your child’s not gross, but natural. A father in the shower with his daughter’s not [pedophilia], it’s fun.
The post has been shared over 60,000 times, with many accusing Chris of being a pedophile himself. However, others have praised him for the statement he made.
“Amen! I would almost go so far as to say, as a parent, you must bathe with your child,” one user wrote. “Children need to see a naked body, see it naturally, how different bodies can look and how right it is… Otherwise we will end up with a totally disturbed generation who think everyone looks like a model without clothes on.”
