TopFree OctoMom Nadya Suleman

TopFree, topless, semi-nude, nude??? Which is it?
Does it depend on whether you are a man or a woman in American society?

Nadya Suleman, aka Octomom, is once again in the news. It seems that she has been paid to have photographs taken of her in a state partial undress. She had pants on. Some people would describe the clothing as ‘panties’ in order to distinguish the commonly accepted words that are used for outerwear attire from the words used for underwear attire; they would claim that the word ‘panties’ is more descriptive of the clothing being worn by Octomom.

What phrase is most descriptive, though, for the pictures being blathered about Nadya Suleman?

Here, take a look at the wording being used in the stories being published; and, if you click on those headings, you will also be able to read the stories, look at the pictures and watch the videos:

Apparently, people are obsessed in the use of the word ‘nude’ as you can tell by the google search Octomom Nude.

And, as an aside, why do people make a fuss over the topic of nudity?
