There have been several stories recently about public nudity, including Sumner (Christchurch’s) mass naked surge into the surf. (See Tv video here, and related stories below).
Public nudity violates other people’s public rights. It forces on to others, like second hand cigarette smoke, things they may openly disagree with. It has no sensitivity to the opinions or rights of others. Public nudity advocates will be the first to insist nativity scenes are banned from public spaces or govt. buildings. They are rank ideological hypocrites.
Public nudity is having a fashionable revival lately, with naturalist joggers, and the naked gay gang raising their peckers in San Francisco. Nudity is portrayed as sophisticated and progressive.
But actually nudity has been around as long as people. There is nothing progressive or sophisticated about going naked in pubic, I mean public. All cultures wear and celebrate clothing for a reason.
I have a simple advisory for all those promoting public nudity. Please insist that old and very fat people are equally represented in your public nudity promotions (they have rights too y’know). Because public nudity gets really ordinary when being sported by the not so young, nubile and athletic lovelies usually full-monty’ed to promote this libertine “I’m a spoiled brat and should be allowed to do whatever I what whenever I want” ideology.
