“Info”: What is or isn’t “pornography” is a debate as old as time. And I certainly think that being able to filter out “not safe for work” photos is a necessary feature, should nudes be allowed on Glass.
While I agree the perpetuation of unrealistic body standards is a serious social issue, it’s reductionist to lay the blame on “nudes” or “porn”. A covered nipple or penis doesn’t transform a photo from one perpetuating an unhealthy body image to a healthy one.
Photography has a long history of celebrating and artistically (yes, artistically!) employing the shape of the uncovered human body, sometimes in an overtly “erotic” manner, and sometimes as a shape, without sexual overtones of any kind. (“Which is which” can be fodder for interesting discussion in and of itself.)
Anecdotally, as a community of photography lovers, I’ve noticed that the Glass community seems to have an unusually high proportion of “unconventionally beautiful” bodies and faces compared to other photo sharing platforms, and at least so far, I’ve never seen a single negative, judgmental comment in response to that.
Remember that Glass requires a $30/year subscription to post content, and has publicly committed to eschewing algorithmically sorted feeds. This has a transformative effect on the kind of users it attracts, and how they behave. Why people behave better on platforms that charge money and don’t reward algorithmically “gamed” content could probably be the subject of many formal studies and doctoral theses, so we’ll have to put a pin in discussing it further. But the short takeaway is: You can’t assume that anything that supposedly happened on other (free, algorithmically curated) platforms will recur here.
Respectfully, I think you’re making the classic mistakes of confusing nudity with sexuality, and sexuality with pornography. And also making very big “what if” assumptions about the effects that nudity might have in an environment that treats its users as paying customers (because they are) instead of monetized nodes in a toxic, attention-driven economy.
