Your step daughter has made some good points. She is right as to embrace this lifestyle you have liberate yourself from the norms of your culture. It sounds like if you embrace this lifestyle in a healthy way your outlook can change and be a much more healthy view on the body and yourself regardless of gender
I feel that if when are nudist they are already liberated from societal expectations regarding their bodies. Body image keeps both men and women from experiencing nudism equally.
Society does impose higher standards on women to look and dress, but many women are now disregarding those standards. We are seeing a wide range of diversity in the fashion industry and in television programming.
I agree with the other post regarding meeting people in the nudist community. As a man, Ive found that the lack of clothing is so much better when meeting. There are no hang ups and I feel that women are more confident than in the textile community.
