Abby this morning
Definitely reblog if you know exactly where this photograph was taken.
In the most challenging of economic times for many, the only way some people are able to continue doing what they believe in is through “mutual support”. Naturism as a Way of Living knows this is true first hand as our resources are minimal to non-existent, however, through technology, social media and the interconnected nature of much of the world, time in between jobs CAN BE supportive!
Legal rights supporting topless equality were established in New York state many years ago, but participation is limited and attitudes are some of the slowest things to change in life! In some cases, people are known to think and say, “Well that’s nice, but its not for me.” This personal attitude is understandable when people perceive no inherent value or benefit in altering their everyday behavior “towards” or “to include” a new privilege secured for them by others! Social nudity is a privilege and a freedom, it is not a necessity for many because the prevailing customs or traditions are based on, or biased towards clothing, and so the term “clothing optional” evolved.
Yet for others, the spirited few, a minority, the idea of being treated unequally because of ONE THING such as a thing men are permitted to do, have or be, while women are not is more than a simple matter! When New York’s laws were revised it was argued the state had, “no compelling interest” in continuing the practices of treating men and women differently! A simple thing but with potentially wide-spread implications and although the law only applies to “in public” spaces, shared spaces, that constitutes an incredibly large area!
In the end, the treatment of women has almost always been unbalanced, from voting rights, to education, employment opportunities (in some areas), to retail prices and services, so any change, any leveling of behaviors IS and WILL BE something happening over generations! I mean, not a few years, but a few decades! The “mainstreaming” of any cultural shift is a terrific challenge requiring minds, bodies, hearts and souls – which means those with ANY passion must act where passive person simply go with “whatever is the norm” of the day.
Please support the passionate few. If we cannot stand next to them, adding financial support behind them is so very valuable! Mental, emotional, vocal and visual support helps also, but SOMETIMES the bits and bytes need financial backing to continue flowing!
Thanks for any consideration given to this cause and efforts!!
2 notes is not enough. Did I type something wrongly?
I love to be nude and want to share this passion with you.
If you have nice pics of your last nude holiday, why not submit for the great naturist community on tumblr to share them?
Although I have seen tennis courts at nudist venues, I don’t recall ever seeing people actually playing tennis nude. Volleyball, yes. Soccer, yes. Horseshoes, yes. Driving golf balls, yes. The joy we can find in doing anything healthy while nude is something we SHOULD be able to enjoy!
