The Sky is Falling! The Sky is Falling! The Sky is Falling!
I looked up a bit of Statistics. Outside of artificially maneuvered China, the natural and general population divided by gender in the United States and in the world is about 105 boys to 100 girls. So, roughly half of us are born with one set of equipment or the other. The mystery solved, Bill.
Now, I can imagine that some are quite shy of their particular plumbing. I know I was, and still am to a fair degree. But, one thing I admire about Naturism is that skin is skin. The skin we are in does not define us, despite the way it is used to interact with the world about us. What defines us is our mind, our character, our soul/spirit..... the thing that is still me if all of my other me is taken away.
Unfortunately, we in America have a long standing tradition of judging the book by the cover. "Indians" are worthless savages standing in the way of progress and wealth. Blacks are useless but for cheap labor. Women are useless except for being barefoot, pregnant and in the kitchen. Immigrants are useless... ad nauseum. And, don't get me wrong, those same prejudices are often turned about as those who are misused judge others by the actions of those who abused them. So, the fact that Billy boy can't look past the outer covering of a person and realize that the inner person may be totally different doesn't surprise me.
Now, there is a huge difference between arousal and 'skin is skin'. To presume that a person who is gender different is going into the other bathroom or locker-room for sexual gratification is quite small minded. To presume that Hooters is not a place for arousal..... a place named for boobs, not breasts, boobs....but is the same as a gender different person coming into a locker-room is very small minded.
I guess I am sad that people can't get past the whole "skin is skin" line. We are such an immature lot.
I have the tendency to be an in house nudist. I don't live in an area where I could be outdoors, but I figure that if my curtains are pulled, then i should be able to be free inside my own home. Of course, this is a summer/warm weather activity.... it's a bit nipply in here in the winter. But, I don't have the self confidence to be so free publicly, like at a resort/beach/etc. I don't mind it around my doctor or in locker-rooms, and my doctors have been both female and male, but perhaps it's because it's expected. Who knows, but I do have going to a nudist camp/resort/beach as a goal in my life.
when i was a kid, it wasn't acceptable to be nude. Not really even in underwear. Just one more thing I wish i could do over in life...
May your day be free.
