Another message for the world. I am a naturist, and proud of it. So why are so many people afraid, repulsed or strewn away for the wrong reasons by those they see casually naked. Why should the sight of the naked body cause somebody to fear someone? That’s really crazy, if you ask me.

Unfortunately, as we all know, thanks to the high money-making porn and sexual industry, has made their earnings by exploiting the naked human body. People don’t want their children, of course, seeing this kind of stuff, and I totally agree. And porn has fallen in too many of the wrong hands. And also unfortunately for us, because of them, just the sight of a casually, non-sexually naked body repulses people. When people link nudity to sex just because one industry has made millions of dollars on body exploitation, people all over start exploiting the body, and we nudists/naturists are rejected and banished. Facebook blocks people as a penalty for the sight of breasts or genitals because of this crazy fear. TV always covers these natural body parts up somehow, whether it’s clever angles with objects in front or blurs.

When kids grow up, most of them love walking and running around the house/yard without clothes on, but then their parents tell them to cover up and stay clothed as they get older. When I was a kid, I used to wake up on the weekends a lot and go in to see my parents who slept naked in bed, and nowadays my mom’s very self-conscious about that. Why are people afraid seriously of the sight of a casually naked body?

PEOPLE—HEAR THIS. Being naked is part of who we are as natural beings in this world. Unless God created you wearing clothes, of course, if that’s how you were born, WHICH NONE OF US WERE. If the reason for your nudity has nothing to do with sex or anything lewd, THERE’S NO REASON TO HIDE IT. If you’re just casually naked outside your house not doing anyone harm, just doing what you’d be doing if you were dressed, it shouldn’t cause a stir or get you arrested. Being who you really are should be promoted, not outlawed. That’s why I believe strongly that public nudity should be made legal—the more people see we nudists/naturists are just normal people like everyone else, the less people will be afraid of simple nudity. People would realize we’re not out to harm them or come on them in any way, if you know what I’m sayin’. Of course we should take care of our hygiene, like everybody else, and keep lewd and sexual behavior out the public eye, like everybody else. BUT LET US BE THE NATURAL US WE ARE—THERE IS NO REASON WHY JUST BECAUSE WE ARE NAKED THAT WE SHOULD BE REJECTED OR FEARED BY THE EVERYDAY PUBLIC. And all bodies should be included in that—we should have the right who we are. Just as Stephen Gough feels comfortable hiking in the buff, just as Rob the carpenter in the UK prefers being naked while working, we should all have the chance to be happy in our own natural skin. The body is part of who we are, and should not be hidden behind artificial coverings—let it live and breathe, just as we let our heads and our hands, let all of your body live and breathe.
That’s also why I praise the efforts of #FreeTheNipple and #FreeThePenis. They’re showing these parts are just everyday parts, not sex objects, and should be free just as we let other parts of our body show without a controversy.

In the end, it’s simple, people. LET US BE US. Yes we’re naked, but that doesn’t mean we’re any different than we’d be if we were wearing clothes. If people want to be casually naked in public, don’t laugh, don’t push them away, don’t ignore them, don’t arrest them. They’re not causing any harm, they’re just being who they naturally are.

Let us be us, people. Think about it. Really think it over, and don’t roll your eyes at this post! REALLY THINK ABOUT IT. WE NUDISTS/NATURISTS ARE JUST EVERYDAY PEOPLE, SO TREAT US LIKE EVERYDAY PEOPLE SHOULD BE TREATED. LET US BE US.

In the meantime, friends, #BeBareBeProud and have a great weekend.
