    UK Guardian published a new article supporting

    Steve Gough and legal public nudity. The new EP filters won't allow me to quote the newspaper article but here is the link: http://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2014/jan/07/naked-rambler-public-nudity-stephen-gough

    I'm Confused

    What is it about nudity that has everyone up in arms??? I mean we are all naked... we CHOOSE to cover up... but what's so offensive about the human body... you see it everyday... its comes in different shapes and sizes, yes... but we all got the same parts... and in the end most...

    Warning: Contains Explicit Lyrics  David

    Draiman from the band Disturbed wrote this song as a response to his critics. After thinking about how completely ignorant and misinformed people are when it comes to simple nudity, and how quick they are to label those who embrace nudity (and anyone who is supportive of them...

    Janet And The Nipple

    It was a frosty winter's day.  We were all sitting around eating food that didn't fall under "meal" or "appetizer."  I was making "Roasted-Toasted-Almonds" and feeling no pain.  When all of a sudden, grandpa hollered, "OH GOD!  What the hell is that?  God dammit!!!  THAT...

    Portland Loves Nudity

    In Portland, there are TONS of nude events. My personal favorite from this year was the Nude Bike Ride series. There were 3 or 4, but the largest was all throughout downtown Portland.... hundreds of nude cyclists and literally thousands of spectators crowding the sides of the...

    I love being naked, when I was younger I couldn't as much as I wanted to because me mother would yell at me. On the other hand if it was me and my father he encouraged it.

    Are You Serious? Intolerance?

    Where is the sense, the common human sense, in intolerance to nudity? When you have a shower in the morning you are naked? When you were born you were naked? What do you mean that was innocent nudity? How is it evil? How is it evil to be naked, nude? I am most delighted to be...

    What Are They Smoking?

    I checked the news this morning,

    and the big story is about Land's End sending a GQ mag with a "near-nude" model on the cover. People were--apparently--horrified. Someone even called it "soft ****". Her 14 year old son is now scarred for life because he saw (almost) a photo of a woman's breast? Seriously...

    Raised European Style

    My father was raised by his Norwegian grandparents, who had the European tolerance to nudity, as did my Dad. I saw my parents nude frequently. I have not been modest around my children either.

    Ignorance Is Not Bliss

    I have found that those who do not approve of social nudity, have not experienced it. They condem that which they have no knowledge of. My favorite saying is, "Condemnation, without investigation, is the height of ignorance." I have very little tolerence for ignorant...

    Nudity is natural, and there is nothing wrong

    with being naked. There's nothing sexual about being naked in and of itself. The intolerance of nudity is something parents and society as a whole trains into kids while they're growing up, starting at a young age, and I think that's wrong. I believe nudity should be legal and...

    Nudity Is Natural

    You are showing a lack of tolerance if you cannot countenance people being naked in public. I cannot understand intolerance, and feel it is a step towards a totalitarianism of sorts. Yes, extreme! Well, that's how it feels. But lack of acceptance of anything other than what...

    Get a load of this. I was looking at memes on 9gag one day, and I found this. For those who aren't aware, this guy's meme always says something that, to a stoner, sounds like a major discovery. (Or he just says something downright idiotic. It varies.)But it was linked with the...

    If people just stopped wearing clothes,

    then no one would care that they were naked. Then everyone could just chill and I wouldn't have to put on pants before going outside anymore

    Mandatory Nudity

    It seems to me that it would be a positive thing if there were circumstances in which people were required to be nude. Security checkpoints in airports, courthouses, and the like strike me as appropriate places to do this. If everyone had to ***** bare around strangers every...

    European Attitude Is Much Better

    I've just come back from a youth summer camp in France. In my 'house' there were 20 of us, 15 boys aged 13-17, and 5 girls 16-17. Most were French, but also several Germans and Scandinavians, and a couple of Spanish boys. It was not a nudist camp, but the attitude about casual...

    More So

    I don't get the intolerance to nudity, and the love of violence and guns. I find much of the US schizophrenic at times. Honestly - as far as the world sees it, it is somewhat bizarre - strange politics and the split between the people is very disturbing. Also the US plays a...

    If You Don't Want To See It, Just Look The Other Way

    I'm not ashamed of my body. It's not that I like showing of, I just got no problems with being seen. Nudity is just natural in some situations and I don't avoid them. Sometimes (altough rarely) it's the ones seeing me naked that have a problem with the situation. They're the ones...
