Should naturist activities be restricted to those over 18 years old
Reaction to a Calgary Natruist group plan for an all age swim at public facility got us thinking about this week's talk up Tuesday question Should naturist activities be restricted to those over 18 years old? Read some of the articles below then talk up tell us what you think!
Follow the prudes’ ideas and we confirm there is something wrong with being naked. The world is not full of paedophiles, as these alarmists would have u# believe.
The primary "work" of all children is learning all the information and behavior they will need to be functional adults. Children need and have a strong desire to learn about themselves and their own species by passively observing a wide variety of members of their species, including adults and other children. Anyone or any culture that systematically deprives children of an opportunity to observe and learn about their own species is being harmful and deliberately hurtful to its children.
I have found on various social media that many nudists began going naked at a young age, often around 9 or 10 years or even younger. Often they report becoming nudists in opposition to their parent's compulsion for clothing. My own experience was sneaking out at night and running naked through the town, or going to the woods and running naked through woods and fields beginning about age 9. Most children these days find ways to access nude pictures on media. They have a STRONG natural desire to observe and learn about their own species. It would be very beneficial for children to have an opportunity to casually observe their own species going about normal activities rather than the "porn" and other nudity they see on-line. Nudity is natural and beneficial to children of all ages whether their parents are there or not.
Our bodies are our most fundamental freedom. The government has no legitimate authority to control our bodies.
Absolutely NOT! I believe I was mentally harmed by being taught that clothing was for moral protection as a child, it contributed to long term insecurity and actual fright at being seen naked, for no reason. Can't blame anyone except the devil, my parents did the best they knew, and overall did a good job. But that one point was badly mistaken and messed up by our culture. It taught me that there was something wrong with being seen nude, something automatically sinful and immoral about me. But in spite of that I started going naked in private in nature when young. But it took a long time for me to finally discover the truth and start retraining my own mind away from the damaging views of ourselves. I think how it happened was by divine guidance. I was mentally becoming quite corrupt, but I didn't like what was happening because I would read good inspired instruction and wanted to be clean and pure minded. So I finally determined I just couldn't do it, needed God's help, so started asking Him to clean up my mind from immorality. And not long thereafter the naturist ideas came at me through my reading articles on websites. I found the mychainsaregone website. I found that we need to retrain our minds to see nudity as pure and turn it loose from the corruption that porn has laden it with. So I started practicing it intentionally. And started going naked in work as much as possible instead of just occasionally when I was feeling sensual. And it worked. It's become my lifestyle, patterned after the original plan God gave us, Naturist gardening. So let us fight the idea that children should be protected from the sight of nude people in common life. Yes, protect them from seeing sexual activity, they don't need to be imitating that, because they will try to do anything they see being done. But plain simple nudity in everyday life is very beneficial to them and will help protect them from the pornification of nudity. If their minds are programmed with nudity as normal everyday life when young, it will not switch over to erotic connotations very easily later. So it's really the devil and the porn industry that wants us to keep our clothes on in order to market porn and let it do it's corrupting work.
i was brought up in a nudist family, saw my parents and grandparents naked all the time.
nudity was never an issue.
my kids were brought up the same way and I have two very well balanced kids who are happy with their bodies.
