Nicely put

We joke that while Mr. SoulFull and I were raised as non-denominational, The Boy was born a Baptist.He has been quite concerned with the concept of modesty, which he separates completely from his scientific interest of how babies are made ( as he should) from an early age. I am often having to explain to him that " no, honey, those people at the park aren't dressing like that to be wicked- they do that because the world actually tells them that it is good." So while it looks bad to us, they think they are doing something good. Society tells us that our main goal in life should be to be attractive- attractive to employers, friends, and obviously, the opposite sex ( or the same same sex...). It is hard for a little guy to understand why everyone doesn't see what is so wrong with this.
 This article articulates this all so well. It is definitely worth a read.
