Why Apologize for Nudity?

I never heard of her before the nude photos began circulating on the Internet:
"Brainy Gabriella of 'High School Musical' would no doubt blush at the idea that nude pictures of young actress Vanessa Hudgens were circulating on the Internet. The problem for the Walt Disney Co. is that Hudgens plays Gabriella. The 18-year-old star of Disney Channel's wildly successful 'High School Musical' franchise apologized on Friday. The photos show a coquettishly smiling Hudgens posing naked in a bedroom with a red curtain behind her."
You know what? Who cares? She is an attractive young lady who let her boyfriend take a nude photo of her. She did not rob a convenience store or get caught driving under the influence. I cannot understand why our society is so afraid of sex and sexuality. We cannot show the human body in its natural form on TV, but can certainly show it being killed and mutilated by unnatural human evil. To me, that is ass backwards. We should be celebrating love and sex while demonizing violence. Instead, we celebrate violence as the natural state of humanity while denigrating sex and sexuality. So the message to the Disney Channel children is our bodies are something to be feared, that is unless being blown open by a bullet or sitting on a stainless steel autopsy slab. Then, it is OK.

Stupidity. Plain and simple.
