Nudists, Nudism and Nudity Throughout History

The Complete History of Nudism, Nudists and Nudity In this article will explore both nudism and nudity throughout history. While organized nudism, as a movement, is considerably young, social nudity is as old as Adam and Eve. Nudism and Nudists History Part One – Nudity in the Bible Nudity In The Bible – When the word nude or naked is mentioned, the first thought is of Adam and Eve.

Why Nude Bathing Is Better Than Bathing Suits

Why Society Is Better Off Swimming Nude Without Bathing Suits I’m not one of those nudies that feels compelled to be naked 24 / 7, and I would say that many nudists can’t be and don’t care to be naked everywhere, all the time. (I’ve mentioned this before in the common myths about nudism.) I’m quite comfortable wearing clothes in the winter. I get cold very easily and am grateful for the sweaters I have to keep me warm. Though I’m not much into fashion or clothes shopping, I do like dressing up sometimes and expressing myself with certain colors, fabrics ... Read more

An Update On Facebook Censorship of Nudity, Naked Art and More In 2014, I published my first article on why Facebook censorship is such a big issue. In the 4 years since, a few things have changed, plus we got a lot more insight on how Facebook (and Instagram, which it owns) moderates the vast amount of content posted to its site every day. Towards of the end of April 2018, Facebook updated its community standards and released the internal guidelines that govern its content control. The Facebook moderators guidelines were leaked to the public a few years ago, though ... Read more

Maryland Attorney General Supports Discriminatory Topless Laws But This Is Not Over On June 14, the Maryland Attorney General’s Office (OAG) issued a “letter of advice” about women’s topfreedom in Maryland. It came out just a few days after the town of Ocean City, MD passed an “emergency” ordinance that outlawed women from going topfree in public.

Topless Laws and Topfreedom in New York State

NY Laws On Topfreedom, False Arrests and Topfree Equality in NYC Like many U.S. anti-nudity laws, New York’s “Exposure of a person” law — Penal Code 245.01 — includes the female nipple when describing body parts that aren’t allowed to be shown / exposed in public. (With the exception of public breastfeeding.) HOWEVER, this part of the law was nullified in 1992 by the NY Court of Appeals ruling in People v. Santorelli. Ever since then, it has been legal for women to go topless in public wherever men can. Topfree Equality in New York (Photo in Central Park, NYC) ... Read more

Free the Nipple and the Fallacy of Relative Privation

Free the Nipple & Why we’re talking about nipples when there are way bigger problems in society In the spring 2015 issue of Bitch magazine (a feminist publication), there’s a review of the Free the Nipple movie. Like many other reviews of this film, it questioned some implausible plot points and “bad writing.” But that’s not all. The author of the article, A.A.I., starts off by dismissing Free the Nipple as a cause worthy of our attention. She wrote that while she found it “totally unreasonable” that women can’t go topfree wherever men can, “…it’s unfortunate that Lina Esco’s directorial ... Read more

Why Facebook Censorship is a Big Issue

Facebook Censorship Is Worse Than Ever. Here’s Why We Should Care. The Issues with Facebook Censorship Facebook Censorship – In honor of its 10th anniversary this year, Facebook added a feature where users could generate a video slideshow of their photos and posts from their timeline (profile), starting from when they joined. The resulting videos are sappy productions that remind us all how (too) much of our lives are documented via Facebook. Beheading videos get to stay, but THIS gets censored? So, having a like-hate relationship with Facebook, I decided to create a parody. There were already quite a few ... Read more
