I Dont Understand Intolerance to Nudity

    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...

    The human body, whatever it's form

    or identity is beautiful. We cover it up for some corrupt morality of the churches, synagogues and mosques.

    I Just Don't Get It

    I grew up on the beaches of Southern California and have seen more women in string bikini's than I don't know what, but there  were sure a hell of a lot of them. Tanning, swimming, riding bikes, roller skating, whatever.  My wife spent time in Europe so she is used to...

    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.

    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...

    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...

    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

    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...

    Nude Is Not Lewd

    We are supposed to be a progressive and enlightened society...then why do we still have a hard time dealing with simple and casual nudity? People seem to be unable to seperate nudity and sexuality in their minds. Fine art nude photography and art is still ***********. And...

    I Seriously Don't Get It...

    Am I missing something here? I read in the paper the story of a man who was arrested for indecent exposure. That means he was naked in public. Now, why the hell are some parts of ou bodies indecent? What makes them less decent than the parts we're allowed to show? And how come so...

    Portland Loves Nudity

    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...

    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...

    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...

    What Are They Smoking?

    Mandatory Nudity
