The indecency is the absence of decorum, shame or restraint . Who acts with impudity, in this way, does it without shyness .

For example: "The minister delivered the bribes to the senators with an astonishing impudity", "The impudence of employers who exploit workers is scandalous", “Posting a photograph of that caliber is a real impudity”.

Usually the impudicia is related to the obscenity . The taxpayer has no reluctance, so he behaves without any measure or reservation : that is, it is exposed.

Suppose some young people get naked on a public beach in view of all present. Thus, without clothes, they walk along the shore and have fun in the sea. For many, these people act with impudence, violating the social norms of decorum. Even that impudence could be considered as a crime since it is linked to exhibitionism.

Take the case of a trade unionist who got rich in a murky way. East man provides journalistic interviews in his mansion, posing for photos in various environments of his luxurious home. He also travels the city in a latest model sports car and always wears costumes of the most famous designers. Although he cannot explain how he obtains the resources to solve such a lifestyle, the union leader It is displayed without qualms , possibly convinced that he enjoys impunity. This impudence irritates society.

Although many Spanish-speaking people know the meaning of this term, it is not a very common one in everyday speech, but usually appears more frequently in literature and journalism. For this reason, we will explore some of its most common synonyms, to try to understand their meaning in greater depth: dishonesty, imputer, immorality, indecency, shamelessness, debauchery, obscenity, impoliteness, concupiscence, procacity, impudence and impudence. Regarding its antonyms, we can mention decency and demure.

We are faced with a concept that is somewhat difficult to define in a definitive and immovable way, since regardless of the centuries of moral imposition by the different political and religious systems, there are still many people who act spontaneously, today margin of the precepts, not with bad intentions but with the aim of being free. And here we enter another term that makes the definition more complex: freedom.

If we ask ourselves what freedom is, the dictionary of the Royal Spanish Academy gives us more than a dozen meanings headed by the following: "the faculty that the human being has by nature to act as he wishes or not to do so, since he is responsible Of their acts". Now, going to a beach and taking off your clothes to enjoy the water and in a natural state should be part of that faculty, but we know that this is not the case and this contradicts the idea that a government spreads when it ensures that "its people enjoy freedom. "

At what point do we lose the freedom to settle for a fragment of it? When they convince us that our freedom ends when that of our neighbor begins. Impudice implies the absence of demure and of modesty, two terms that share the meaning of "honesty" in their definitions; To respect the freedom of others, one of the best ways is honesty, and in the case mentioned above of the trade unionist who has obtained his money at the expense of the efforts of others, we can understand that it is something negative.

"Impudice" Finally, it is the title of a novel written by the French Marguerite Duras . The book was published in 1943 as "Les impudents" In its original language.
