Sometimes it would be easier if some people didn't know. My supervisor blabbed it in front of the (former) president of the company, and he gave me a hell of a (eeeewwww type of) look. My own daughter joked once about "my dad the pervert nudist." She really does understand, but those kind of jokes don't help the cause.

nudismisntlewd, I see your point about not telling everyone as some won't or can't understand about nuidism and it's non sexual aspect. Some adults have immature or child-like attitudes toward nudism.

Exactly, irishred. I told at least one person that I would show them this forum and let them read the topics to see the intelligent, non-sexual conversation here-except I didn't think they were mature enough to get past seeing my avatar. From some of these closed-minded people, I simply don't have the time or patience to listen to their prepubescent BS.

Maybe in a few years people will get used to nudity, they can oly fight it so long. Hopefully nudity will become as accepted in the USA and Canada, as it is in Europe. It will probably take a generation that has free access to nudity to be able to turn it around.

While I hope nudity will gain acceptance in the US, I'm not 100% confident it will. It's still more than possible that anti-nudist forces will prevail. That's part of why it's important to build numbers, options, and allies when the climate is friendly. It's also part of why it's important to make sure that nudism doesn't slip into allowing inappropriate behavior which gives fuel to our opponents.

Your dead right Cheef i think it is very important for us to always promote the positive side of nudism.I know it is sometimes hard but i believe we have to stop hiding ourselves from the outside world.I do not run about advertising the fact i am a nudist,but if the conversation arises or if someone asks i will tell them of my preference to go without clothes when practical.If we continue to deny it or keep it a secret in my opinion it gives the impression we are doing something wrong or something we are ashamed of,thereby enforcing the general view that we are a bunch of wierdo's.I for one dont know how we can be labelled as perverts when we can go naked,socially,in mixed company and view the naked body without thinking of sex,whereas the so called "normal" population can not.So who are the perverts again???
A case in point,look at the image on the home page of this site,to me it is a couple enjoying a day at the beach in the sun,and dressed appropriately.To a textile it probably conveys quite a different meaning,so who is the wierdo,who has the problem?Now the hard part is getting them to acknowledge it.Just like an alcoholic,"Hello my name is "Charles" i am a Textile!!" (LOL).....Textiles Anonymous???;-)

most of my friends know, and do not care, some co-workers that also go to the same beaches as me. It's a very natural thing to do and i encourage people to try a day at a nude beach.

I believe that the pendulum will swing the other way one of these days... There seems to be an oscillation ever generation or two.

I find it strange that as our society seems to be getting more morally corrupt in many ways, one movement (naturist) that promotes family activities meets opposition.

At the same time, I just heard an advertisement for "Models" on UPN where the first show, the participants "get naked", not promoting family values but titillation.

P.S - Melissa, your spell checker works great!

NUDKIWI and bornnude you are both right. Before we can be accepted by society as nudists, we have to accept society for what it is. Calling people textiles and weirdos because they do not agree with us does not bridge the gap. we have to work with society, and show that we are just enjoying clothes free activities, and are not swingers, child molesters, and perverts. We have to promote nudism as healthy and pro envirnment. Somehow we need to break away from the "sexual" label that nudists have be unfairly given.

Kimberly... I agree that we shouldn't call people wierdos. However, I don't think "textiles" is an inherently negative term. It's a shorter way of saying "non-nudists". I have heard somewhat questionable terms like "clothes-compulsive", and out-and-out insulting terms - but I don't think "textile" fits in that category.

NUDKIWI,

Thanks for that insight. You have gotten me to thinking. I never thought of it, but you are right. Those who think we are getting naked for sexual reasons do have a perverted view based on what they think is the only reason to be nude with others. Apparently seeing nudity makes them think about sex. Perhaps some of them have their minds in the gutter.

All people and groups in all situations, myself included, have the tendency to make judgements about others based on pre-concieved notions and what we see on the surface. The notions people get are very rarely based on reason, just on emotion and what they see or think they see. In my opinion, this is one of the core problems with society. Why no-one gets along. People are the way they are, and do what they do for reasons, and when researched, that becomes apparent.

Randy
