File:Kids skinny dipping in India.jpg


Image of 8-10 yo boys in India swimming naked in pool, photographer appears to have changed license to ARR since it was scrapped by Administrator Sandstein from flickr. Proposed for deletion because "The image depicts identifiable people. There is no proof about the consent from the boys in question. It therefore infringes their privacy."

Keep. The current Flickr licensing is not an issue, as the page confirms that the photo was properly licensed at the time of upload. The privacy issue is not a real problem: boys of that age, who are now 6 years older and presumably look rather different, in a third-world city of 327,000 people, are for practical purposes not identifiable.

Keep, essentially agree with analysis by Sandstein above. It's basically Naturism. -- Cirt  05:33, 2 March 2012 (UTC)

Once again we have Commons administrators, in this case Sandstein, claiming rights that were probably never intentionally given in the first place. Indeed the license on the account looks to have changed when the photographer was informed a year after the scrapping that the photo was on Commons and to check his licenses. A similar image but with the children more frontal was deleted. Quality argument by Sandstein as to this being a 3rd world country and all.

Cirt should really know that Naturism is a political philosophy which for 8-10 to be espousing is quite precocious of them.

Kept: per Aidas. These kids are bathing in a public place, plus you can't really see anything. Mentioning paedophilia is in particular bad taste. Jastrow 14:38, 6 March 2012 (UTC)

Nice to see the child porn expert Beta_M taking an interest in this one, which makes the closing comment by Jastrow regarding paedophilia all the more ironic.
