Occasionally I wandered in where I was not wanted and gave truthful answers.
Sometimes I even did it deliberately. A little disruption now can prevent disaster later.

Discussion on morality, sex, nudity, and pagan festivals

Here's part of a conversation I had with Shawn Herles

Even when we are nude, we hide our bodies in shame. Every minute of every day.

Genitals

The simple fact is that genitals are no more sexual than any other part of the body--until we use them for sex.

Thinking by blogging

We've gotten so used to hiding ourselves that the default assumption is that the only reason you see someone nude is because you are about to get it on. It's not true.

NeoNote — Nudes on Technopagan Yearnings

Anything in the Gallery or albums has to have grabbed my attention. That usually means it has to be unusual.

Alienates us

The demand that we always wear clothing while in society causes at least four kinds of alienation: it alienates us from ourselves, from others, from nature, and from the Divine.

❝What boys really need are real bodies.❞

What boys really need are real bodies. They need to go to nudist parks and see middle-aged women who more closely resemble duffle bags than Playboy centerfolds. They need to know such real women personally and appreciate them for deeper reasons than how closely they conform to the Playboy lie... But since our culture foolishly fails to foster such wholesome customs, boys fall into the pornography trap. Not only does porn objectify females and ingrain in boys' psyches an unrealistic ideal, but since its nature is erotic, by association, it acculturates boys to identify nudity with sex. By nature there is no such identification. Warped culture creates it artificially.

❝We're Cuban, and it's a hot island.❞

I love being naked. I do everything in the nude, even the gardening! We're Cuban, and it's a hot island. Why not go nude?

Hypocrisy and insecurity

The main hangup in the world today is hypocrisy and insecurity. If people can't face up to the fact of other people being naked, or whatever they want to do, then we're never going to get anywhere. People have got to become aware that it's none of their business and that being nude is not obscene. Being ourselves is what's important. If everyone practised being themselves instead of pretending to be what they aren't, there would be peace.

❝But if I were 22 with a great body…❞

I think onstage nudity is disgusting, shameful, and damaging to all things American. But if I were 22 with a great body, it would be artistic, tasteful, patriotic and a progressive religious experience.

❝Being natural and matter-of-fact about nudity…❞

Being natural and matter-of-fact about nudity prevents your children from developing an attitude of shame or disgust about the human body. If parents are very secretive about their bodies and go to great lengths to prevent their children from ever seeing a buttock or breast, children will wonder what is so unusual, and even alarming, about human nudity.
— Lee Salk, McCall's, June 1976

Casual nudity

I strongly believe there's nothing wrong with casual nudity, and I do not believe that nudity equals sex or sexual behavior. I don't agree that nudity constitutes sexual harassment, but for the sake of civility I'll wear pants around those folks not used to it.

We pretty much agreed that women sometimes lie about rape and the code needed to take that into account. We added one small paragraph that said accusations of rape didn't necessarily mean rape.
