    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...

    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

    Why

    Really please tell me why it is so wrong we should be allowed to be as free as we want without others thinking so down on us it is our choice and we have the right to be nude, naked, showing our birthday suit, all natural, in all of our glory, blah, blah ,blah. We all get the...

    UK Guardian published a new article supporting

    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...

    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, 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...

    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.

    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...

    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.

    My Vagina is the Unfortunate Window To My Soul

    Something happened to me when I was a little girl (to this day I don't know what) that made me fear being nude in front of others. I'm a 32 y/o woman who refuses to go anywhere where being seen nude is a requirement. I even turned away desperately needed help from Silver Hill...

    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...

    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?

    A while back, I read a response from someone named Christyna, who claimed that families, children included, who walk around nude are committing child/sexual abuse. It's one thing if the child was clearly abused in one of these ways. But to claim that being naked in front of your...

    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...

    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.

    Portland Loves 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!!
