George Bush Sr. Posed Nude!

Tuesday, November 12th, 2013

Not Bush Sr nor Junior.

And so did Hillary Clinton, Diane Sawyer, and Dick Cavette.

This has to be one of the strangest footnotes in American history. From the 1940’s through the early ’60’s, thousands  of incoming freshmen at Ivy League schools like Harvard, Yale, and Vassar, had to strip naked and have their pictures taken for science. The “official” reason was so a research study group could “gauge the rate and severity of rickets, scoliosis, and lordosis in the population.”

The real reason?  Anthropologists William Sheldon and Earnest Hooton (undoubtedly funded by our government) were probably using the data to support their theory on the relationship between body types, social hierarchy, and intelligence.  The Nazi’s were doing the same thing in Germany.  Most of the American images were later destroyed.

The vast majority of students did not refuse and did what they were told.

I went to college from 1968 – 1972 and I’m amazed at that generation of sheep.  I can only imagine the protests of students in my time at such a request!  Anarchists may have lit buildings on fire if the feminists had left any standing.
