The body acceptance movement, the Topless Woman movement, and many other movements may have been spawned either from feminism or the growth of Naturism. One of the problems these social movements have is corruption by outside forces seeking to ‘umbrella’ them under one banner or movement. Feminism is a good example of this. The feminists immediately declared that the body/fat acceptance movement was theirs and almost immediately a slew of posts on social media appeared promoting the belief that its okay to fat, or ugly, or flat chested.
While believing that the body God gave you is a beautiful and blessed thing, what we do not need is to do is to confuse vice (pornography) and self-promotion with body acceptance or nudism. What the feminist movement never latched onto was the fact that Naturism and Nudism already promote a healthy body and a healthy body image. We’ve been doing that for decades without the help of social media.
So why does feminism cling to the likes of Kim Kardashian and Miley Cyrus as promoters of body acceptance? Because they want to be those two. They really aren’t promoting body acceptance, they are just trying to justify their own sense of self-worth. Nudism promotes a healthy body image without being self-aggrandizing or self-promoting. But the feminists will never come to our side because in the end they are still ashamed of their own bodies.
about a naturist committing murder/suicide?
going on a killing spree?
And the textiles wonder whats wrong with us.
So i’m looking around my old flickr account and i stumble onto this:
Of course its the Folsom Street Fair and guess what tags these pictures were under? You guessed right: Nudism. I know we sometimes wonder why Naturism and Nudism has such a bad rap. Well this kind of stuff is why. How in the hell did we become associated with these people in the first place. I try not to be judgmental but i can’t help it when i see shit like this! Open sex acts on a public street, people simulating BDSM and having orgies in a hotel room in front of windows! And people associate Nudism and Naturism with this…well…with this poor white trash freak festival? Sometimes i think we need to speak out and make sure the rest of the world knows we have nothing to do with these people. And we need to tell these ‘people’ to stop trying to associate themselves with us.
Just my two cents.
I was reading some old posts on a few naturist forums and in the single male category there was some talk about how single males get the short end of the stick in many private nudist venues. Some of it struck me as kind of strange, so i went back through some of my old posts and found an old post where i lightly discussed the issue here: Single Male Nudists.
Now what i found interesting about some of the posts were a few black males still were actually worried about private and public venues due to fears of being gawked at because of the size of their penises. One guy stated he was worried that he may get assaulted by a group of angry male spouses and fathers whose wives and daughters did more then look for small moment. I found this to be silly, because i seriously doubt that would happen. If this is actually the cause of the single male exclusion in some private venues then maybe the rules should state this: Due to safety concerns for single male patrons we are barring them from the resort because we are worried about the roving eyes of peoples spouses and children. (sarcasm for those who don’t get it)
Another several posters also complained about some rules about piercings. One guy complained that he had been asked to take his penis and scrotum piercings out when he visited a private venue. He stated he found it very sexists when there were women with piercings in their labia and nipples, and they were not asked to remove their piercings. Well i took offense until i read a few more posts and discovered that said male had heavy piercings in his penis and scrotum. He looked kind of freakish and was basically wearing hoop earrings in these piercings and he looked like some loser that frequents a Folsom St. parade. So i could understand why the venue would ask him to remove them. Its one thing to be different. Its another to draw attention to yourself, especially your genitals.
Now as far as piercings for females and males go i believe any private venue has the right to make the rules as they see fit. Nipple piercings and heck maybe even vaginal piercings may be okay so long as they don’t stand out so much that anyone can see them from a number of feet away. I’ve seen a .gif on 4chan of some mature BDSM woman who had so many heavy piercings in her outer and inner labia that she made noise like a key chain or wind chimes when she walked. I wouldn’t want to see that in a public or private nudist venue, or hear it coming for that matter! LOL!
I think we need to think as single people about a certain modicum of modesty in our nude appearance, even with piercings. A good rule to follow may be this: If you can’t wear the piercing(s) to work then you probably shouldn’t wear it to the nudist resort.
Just my two cents on this matter.
First some links: Go Topless Day (wikipedia) GoTopless.Org The Social and Legal arguments for topless women in public
Second: My Opinion
This has got to be the stupidest fucking shit i have ever seen in my goddamn fucking life! Now i spent a hour debating this with myself and what my thoughts and opinion on this matter should be. Going topless is not a fucking social justice ideal! If you want to walk around with yer tits hanging out then go to a nudist resort or topless beach! But this dumb idea of going topless for a day to support gender equality is just fucking stupid! It has no merits, does not support the equality between males and females and does not help society grow or function any better!
There is a reason women wear bras and 90% has to do with the laws of physics and comfort! It has nothing to do with patriarchy and women being oppressed! Now if you are one of those grown women with the bust size of a 10 yr old Asian schoolgirl then by all means don’t wear a bra but keep a fucking shirt on! Just like no one wants to see a 85 yr old man with liver spots walking around with his shirt off, no one wants to see most women of any age, IN PUBLIC, with their shirts off!
The social justice warriors/advocates (SJWs) who support this garbage apparently do not understand why we have certain social norms. We have them because it helps society function with efficiency on a day to day basis. The reason we ask women to cover up is the same reason we ask men to cover up, to keep society flowing smoothly, to keep social conversation and decorum polite and decent, and most of all to keep people from distractions, and encouraging those with less common sense, morals, and sanity from acting out in negative ways!
I guess what really irks me with this Go Topless Day is that it doesn’t actually help the cause of gender equality, societal evolution, helping those in need, or even just making the world a better place. GTD is a exercise in futility which not only wastes time that could be spent truly helping people, but also shows how selfish and immature the so-called gender equality movement is. It seems that the gender equality movement or GEM is run by a bunch of 20 yr old party girls who are trying to make up for the fact that they were late bloomers in high school, instead of helping women have better life in this nation and across the world.
In the end i don’t think we’ll have as many women participate as the GEM hope. Too many people have common sense, and it seems the GEM wants to throw out common sense along with the bathwater and baby we call human civilization. And to what end? So you can feel equal to the guy walking down the street with his shirt off?
And finally i should say this. We as nudists should not get involved in this clusterfuck of a movement.
So late last year during the winter i decided to look into the online nudist scene some more. More specifically webcam chats for nudist. I actually bookmarked a Yahoo! Answer regarding nudists webcam chats and left it at that. But a few days ago i decided to actually look into it. Suffice to say i wasn’t very satisfied with the results of my searching. I’ll put this to number that are easy to understand. I searched 100 links and here is what i found:
70 links were amateur porn webcam sites
20 links were dating sites for nudists or non-nudist singles with no real cam chat unless its one on one.
15 links were to nudist web cam chat that have been dead for at least a year.
3 links were to place that were malfunctioning
2 link were actually active sites with nudists who were in a webcam chat forum.
Only 2 sites! Can you believe it? One of them is truenudist.com. The other one i won’t mention until i can confirm that it has any activity going on. Truenudist.com offered exactly what i was looking for. A serious forum where i could talk to other at home nudists and broadcast on cam if i wanted to. No sexy performances or other weird stuff either. A good, decent site that actually takes care of itself and is maintained quite well.
One thing i must note also is that there are a lot of females in the room, but none are broadcasting. I think i understand why. Probably because most of the females are married and do not want to attract single guys looking to perv. It is also fear of some idiot recording the broadcast and posting it all over the net. It’s kinda sad, but that is life. To be honest in most cases the room is filled with men. I have no problem with that. It actually makes things a little easier to adjust to and allow me to become more comfortable until i can join in the conversations and get to know people better.
In the end though its sad that we haven’t been able to truly utilize the Net at its fullest capacity, but it seems this is what we are capable of for now.
I’ll be honest. I was scared to do this post. The fear has nothing to do with shame mind you, but other personal things. But here i am. Sorry for the quality of the pics, but i wasn’t the camera man at the time.
I had to go back through all of my old posts and add titles to the reblogs. Then I also had to add tags and categories. Never gonna let myself get so sloppy again.
