I've grown up in a textile world, but I've always been an out of the box thinker. In fact, along the way, I've been exposed to an old man constantly belittling his wife. I've heard a lot of people talk about how evil (black people) are. So even though I was a child at the time, I've made myself aware that not all old people are like that. And going outside at that time, I tested the theory by talking to a black girl. She didn't seem particularly evil to me. Going through life, I continued to challenge our moral system with clear logic.
But I never could find the logic in why so many people feel offended by their own natural state. Every man has a penis and breasts. Every woman has a vagina and more developed breasts for feeding babies.
If a kid didn't already ask before, "Where do babies come from?" The easiest answer is "When this and that go together"
And every homophobe's worst fear - "What about that other?"
"Well, that one just hurts"
Everyone has an *** with 2 buttcheeks which connect the legs and torso. So what!? How can seeing those things derange a kid or bother someone? There's alot of horrible things to see in the world. If your own body is one of them, how can you have pride in your own life and that of people you respect?
Are the majority of our population so "sheepish" that they accept what their peers believe in as right without question? The object of this thread is to figure out at its core what textiles find offensive about nudism.
The first time I saw a woman's breast, my first thought was, "Well, I guess I'm supposed to get excited". To fit in at that time, I pretended to do just that. Then when I left the area, I started thinking about something else, unrelated.
It seems men are brainwashed into admiring breasts as the primary object of lust, because they are partially visible, like a tease.
I get this from knowing that women's breasts are for breastfeeding, and doesn't seem to be critical to sex.
But I do know that women often experience erotic pleasure when a man works her breasts right.
Could this be because of that association of breasts and erotica? Women's sexual arousal seems to be based on a state of mentality. Some women are aroused by their breasts. Others aren't but gravitate toward attention to their feet during foreplay.
With this kind of logic in mind, it seems like the artifical identity that clothing establishes for people is really a big headgame from our ancestors. A real shame too, because if we didn't wear clothes when it's not neccessary, we may have adapted over time to be climatized to the elements. But I could be wrong. Regardless, this kind of dependency brings shame on humans, while wildlife is completely independent and free.
In the thread I made about that guy who made the youtube video "Nudism Sucks", someone pointed out that there's no point in arguing with idiots. Fortunately, we got our own local textile Stu here for intelligent debates, so this next portion is directed to you:
What is it that you find unsettling about nudity? Does this apply to men only or men and women?
Is your distaste for nudity based on your influences growing up, or is there a specific reason that it bothers you?
What would you consider worse for a child to see - nudity or a person being beaten to a bloody pulp?
