There are many types of nudity and present laws and regulations openly DISCRIMINATE and CRIMINALIZE even simple appearances of nudity.
The world is a complex place and guidance is routinely required to aid people in understanding each other; this is why we have laws, law enforcement, courts and judges. These institutions strive to represent all parties equally under the law, but if the law blocks certain freedoms then it does not represent all parties equally!
If “simple nudity” to you means the ability to broadcast webcam images, take and share nude selfie photographs, get nude family photographs developed at a drugstore or national discount retailer (..who still does this?), HAVE a clothing-optional beach OR business establishment in your community - without it being classed as an “Adult” business venture - then we need better representation, more legitimate statuses, broader definitions of “Erotic” and “Non-erotic” businesses and, dare I suggest, a redefining of the terminology related to many Adults only businesses (example: Should a topless donut shop be classified as a Adult business in New York state where Topfreedom has been legalized?).
If you are concerned with any aspect of this issue in general, or some aspect of it specifically, then please consider joining NACORBA.org at the Free basic membership level. If you are an artist, writer, photographer, legal professional or doctor/psychologist with an appreciation for life without clothing, NACORBA may be able to use your skills. However, this should only be considered IF you are willing to defend one or more of the freedoms I have described above.
Thank you! Please share this post accordingly whether to Nudist, Naturist or another label-neutral type of tumblog (eg. Photographer that does paid nude and glamour work).
