I Dont Understand Intolerance to Nudity

    There's two types of body - make

    and female. We may vary a bit in size and shape, but we're all the same and so have nothing to hide or be embarrassed of! If you're closeted and puritanical enough to think that nudity means anything else than that, then don't look!!

    Families who are super casual about nudity are

    always way nicer and just open in general.

    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.

    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.

    Life Has To Be Balanced From Good & Evil

    The idea to Oppress, Repress and Suppress human Nature, just makes it all Back Fire. And again, I've said many times before that I hate Black and White thinking in our Society and World. The idea to have something Perfect in One's Eyes is not really in the Gray area for this...

    Here's one definition of a nudist.

    "A person who is strong, confident, open, honest and free. A person who enjoys being naked as often as possible. A person who loves respects, and appreciates their bodies, as well as the bodies of others. A person who knows that all bodies are beautiful, no matter what their...

    Here is an article about water usage.

    It shows that almost 1/4 of water usage is wasted on laundry. Another 1/4 is used for flushing toilets, most of which would be eliminated if people went outside to pee on their yard, garden, tree, or even the gutter of the street. Unfortunately bodies have to be hidden 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...

    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.

    The clothing industry is the world's 2nd

    biggest polluter. Its also the biggest water and electricity waster in cities. And 90% of clothing is worse than useless. Its uncomfortable, expensive, dirty, needs constant maintenance, and except for winter has no important use. The only excuse for clothing it "everyone...

    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...

    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...

    California Governor now has imposed huge fines

    Portland Loves Nudity

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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
