Comments on a few nudesworthy items that strolled past our door in the last month
I had read most of these articles. But seeing so many in one group that view nudity and naturism as a threat, directly or indirectly, is disheartening to say the least.
It’s reality. But wondering what your thoughts are Evan as to how this impacts, the budding naturist, the “naturist-curious”. Obviously it doesn’t help. I can only assume that as someone considers naturism, seeing such negative press on things like acceptance, understanding, and “fringe groups”, whether naturist or not, this negative messaging has to be in their heads somewhere. So, not only does it impact current naturists, but it impacts future growth, or perhaps replenishment, as well. Not encouraging.
Just put “journalist” in quotes when referring to a Krassenstein. I listen to Keith Olbermann and he calls it “Fox Nudes” and has used nude pejoratively before. This is really a product not of ideology, but of being caught up in what I have called the “Inadequacy Industry” for about 20 years.
If anyone is “grooming” it’s the Inadequacy Industry, otherwise there wouldn’t be conservative nudists or liberal nudists, there’s only be one set of those because then it would be ideologically based, rather than JUST BEING WHO WE #%^*#|<£ ARE!
The II, as I define it, is primarily marketing messaging - all the products that you “need” so you won’t feel bad about yourself because you are gross, ugly, and unworthy. It has seeped skin = sex into the mentality for many generations. Throw in the rise of certain types of religious extremists trying to dictate how we live, and boom, you get a hypnotized ignorant public.
DeSantis is evil. This political hit piece probably stems from the sensational press coverage of Playalinda Beach in Florida. Due to a powerful storm last year the traditionally nude part of the beach (lot 13 and north) was separated from the more southern part of the beach due to washout of the dunes. The park rangers let nudists use the northernmost part of the remaining beach (lot 8). Families wandered into that area as before and were offended by nudity. The nude part of the beach from lot 13 northward is now open but the reputational damage has been done.
Everything in Florida that Republicans don't agree with becomes evil and is politicized.
Whoever that crass-enstein guy is, that was wildly, incorrigibly offensive.
Thank you for this! I responded to that awful Tweet by a supposedly liberal 'journalist' and I think every naturist should.
Thank You for these informative articles. I can see Florida is going into the Communist Realm if someone doesn't soon vote them out.
We clearly need some politicians to state they are Naturists for anything to change. Cheers to a brighter future!
About Berlin to allow women to go topless in public swimming pools...
Even though letting women to be topless in public pools (or even on public beaches) too is a first step in the right direction, for true gender equality, it's also a step in the right direction in the right way that I am working on (as a naturism ambassador, promoter and advocate) - to make public nudity mainstream.
Hashtags I commonly use in my social media posts, for that purpose: #MakePublicNudityMainstream #MakeNudeInPublicMainstream #PublicNudity
