The Dutch television show “Gewoon Bloot” (“Simply Naked”), which displays nude adults in front of 10- to 12-year-old children and allows them to ask questions, recently focused an episode on people who identify as transgender.

Clips from a recent episode started circulating on Twitter. Host Edson da Graça reiterated the show’s premise, saying how nude adults stand in front of children to “give them the opportunity to ask questions” about their naked bodies. 

“Today our guests are transgenders,” da Graça announced in the clip.

“That feeling can simply be a feeling, but you can also do something about it,” one show participant told the children. “For example, I had a surgery.”

“As you can see, there’s something in my underpants but I still have a vulva,” another person on the stage said. “I don’t feel comfortable with that body part, therefore I am wearing my underwear with a packer,” the person continued, referring to wearing padding or a phallic object to give the appearance of having a penis.

Another participant mentioned “vaginoplasty,” which was described as a process by which “you can surgically change the male sex organ to the female sex organ.”

“At first you think, huh?” one of the children said in response to the presentation. “But later you realize that it’s actually pretty normal.”

“It’s actually really normal,” a young boy agreed.

“So it’s not just male and female. There’s an entire spectrum of genders besides male and female,” the host told the assembled kids. Next, a trans-identifying participant described feeling “euphoric” after having gender reassignment surgery.

“I woke up and I knew that my breasts were gone. That it looked like I had always wanted it to look. It finally matched the way I feel inside, and that made me feel ecstatic.” 

“So it feels a bit like flying?” one child asked.

“Yes,” the participant responded. 

“You simply feel intense happiness,” the host chimed in, to which the child replied, “I want that, too.”


“Simply Naked” came under fire ahead of its March 21 debut for the shocking premise. Dutch public broadcaster NOS insisted that the show is meant to promote body positivity and reduce the stigma around nudity. 

“The aim is to teach children that each and every body is different and that not all bodies are perfect,” host da Graça said in an interview, as The Daily Beast previously reported.

Dutch MP Tunahan Kuzu disagreed, calling the concept “ridiculous” and demanding a boycott. Conservative politician Thierry Baudet said the show was “promoting pedophilia.”
