Fat and Old discrimination at the Beach.

So after all these years this revelation finally hit me.  All of you have been to the standard beach and as you look around you see the usual young girls in their skimpy two piece bikinis correct.  And yet when you look at the old and fat you see this:


I never thought about it, i never even realized that yes we still discriminate against the old and the fat on the beach.  You see the old and fat have been told, weather openly, through the media, and through going to the beach as well that they don’t own their own bodies the moment they hit the beach.  They need to cover up because no one wants to see their fat and/or wrinkled bodies.

Now this is something that I could say that we as Naturist can point out and use it to encourage people to frequent nudist and topless beaches.  But there is a problem.  The problem is that young people still react harshly to seeing the old and overweight in the nude or topless, and many will stop coming to nude beaches and nude resorts if they feel they have to look at old bodies all day.  Of course this is just egotism and youthful arrogance speaking, but it is a problem when we want to attract more young people to the Naturist lifestyle.

Suffice to say i don’t have any grand solutions to this.  But i will say that by now you’d think that the fat and elderly women would have broken this mold of shame about their bodies and have strode onto the beach in a two piece bikini without any shame and ignoring the stink eye given to them by young people.

Just my 10 cents on something i thought about.


All-female cast perform NUDE version of Shakespeare’s Tempest in Central Park

All-female cast perform NUDE version of Shakespeare’s Tempest in Central Park

  • Members of Outdoor Co-ed Topless Pulp Fiction Appreciation Society put on production of Shakespeare’s Tempest
  • Play was designed to highlight the restrictions that society places on people’s bodies, according to the group
  • All-female cast performed show over two day on Summit Rock in Central Park as part of the outdoor theater season
  • Toplessness is legal everywhere in New York, and while full nudity is usually banned, it is allowed in the name of art

the Bathroom issue. Or the new Trangenderism and Naturism.

Transgender Child Banned From Using School Bathroom, Ignites Debate Over Anti-Discrimination Laws

Chicago schools say transgender kids should use bathrooms matching identity

So how long before we as naturists have to deal with this issue?  Think about it for a moment.  The children are one thing, but the adults are a whole different matter.

As you can see from the pictures what are we going to do about the Buck Sextons of the world?  Or the Genderqueer/genderfluid types who change their genders mentally as easily as people change their socks physically?

Now I figure the Naturists resorts, clubs, and vacation spots may have a good ten years before they have to deal with this, but i could be wrong.  As Naturism tends to be body positive and body acceptance.  How are we going to deal with the fat, ugly 47 year old guy with dirty long thinning hair who says that today he feels that he identifies as a female so he wants to use the female faculties and wants to participate in the ladies only events?  This self identity thing is going to cause a lot of trouble for us if we don’t get a handle on it quickly.

So how do we deal with these kinds of people who are literally less then one percent of the human population as a whole?  Do we just let them do as we please in naturist resorts?  Or do we prepare to kick them out, create rules and charters that will cause them to not come to naturist resorts?  The small private naturist clubs are the ones to most likely be hit with lawsuits and other such things that could cripple them.

So once again I ask us as Naturists.  What do we do about this issue?

Ugly Nudity.

I have to admit what inspired me to write this was a post on 4chan in response to a picture of average good-looking woman in the nude.  The said he was surprised at how ugly people look in the nude:


My first desire was to lash out at the person and chew them out for what they said.  But then i thought about it, beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and we all have a right to our opinion about what we consider to be beautiful and what we consider to be ugly.  So lashing out at the guy would have been improper.  Instead I could just simply state my opinion that I thought he was wrong.  But what happened was I started thinking about beauty in general.

So who wants to see some 80 yr old woman in the nude?  Does anyone want to see a fat, 60 year old man who genitalia looks like it got lost in the blubber?  Let’s just be honest, no most of us do not.  Because we as humans have defined beauty as youth and fit bodies, and that has a tendency to be portrayed in the pictures we generally show of nudity and nudism in general.

Now don’t get me wrong I’m not going to chew anyone out for having fit, young bodies in their advertisements for resorts or in pictures on their blogs.  One instance is for business the other is a personal preference.  And while beauty is in the eye of the beholder, so is ugliness.  The thing about beauty is that there are two types of beauty:


First there is Sexual Beauty or it also be called Attracting Beauty.  This form of beauty is pleasing to the eye and most people also find it sexually attractive.  Its part of the way we are built as humans, so we cannot look at it as bad because God instilled it in us for the sake of helping us procreate.

So then what am I getting at with this post.  What I’m trying to say is that we as Naturist must not have “Body Acceptance” but we must obtain “Body Contentment”.  Think of “Body Contentment” as the enlightened form of “Body Acceptance”.  In Body Contentment” we are content that there are certain things about our bodies that we cannot change, and that these things make us less physically appealing to the naked eye.  We accept this ugliness as part of who we are and how God made us.

Think of Body Contentment in the form of the fat, 86 year old naked woman.  Why is she content with her looks?  She is content because she has lived long enough to look the way she looks now.  The woman knows that she is lucky to have lived to see 86 years.  She sees her current body as something she has earned and is glad in it.

What we should strive for as Nudists is Body Contentment in the now, not wait until we are too old and are somewhat forced to do so.  Being content is in many ways better then being happy.  In contentment we can find happiness in so many other things beyond ourselves.  Such as the 86 yr old woman finds happiness in her great grandchildren, not in her looks.  If we can reach the stage of Body Contentment then i believe we’ll all be a lot happier with ourselves whether we are nude or clothed.

Just my two cents for now.

(sorry about some of the pictures.  I know they may gross some people out and such)
