RE: If nudity were legal... how soon would I go grocery shopping?

if its not illegal in the uk why aren't more people exercising their rights, if it was legal in the us other than vermont i would be looking to test the law, actually looked into moving to vermont but had other issues come up, it would be great if nudity in public was more acceptable.

RE: If nudity were legal... how soon would I go grocery shopping?

and the Naked Rambler in the UK has spent more than his fair share of time in jail for simply walking through with a backpack.
I'm with Gabare and think it would be great if it were made legal, to organize some friends and groups to grocery shop on a given day so there would be no question but that complainers were just being whiners as opposed to being offended by anything considered by the mores of society to actually be offensive. And someone else made the point that it might be a good idea (til it caught on) to drive to a nearby town. I don't want to meet my sister in law in the grocery store when I'm making a socio-political statement.

Done it in Le Cap d'Agde and in some Croation resorts (though in at least in one Croatian resort officially some attire required in the shop but as signs been posted too discreetly to notice it first time and noone made a point so it kept on happening few times before noticed the sign). In textile environment would go to buy groceries any time it would be socially halfway acceptable and reasonably tolerated. On the other hand, in general I prefer to be nude either when everyone or all others nude or when no people. Feel awkward if only one nude unless people around people whose attitudes towards nudity are positive and I am aware of that, too.

onthebeach i see your point i wouldn't want to get arrested either its a shame that its legal but other can dictate how legal it is, i think vermont is the leader in its liberal views on public nudity in fact it came up this year and they apparently tabled it, the other year teens were gathering nude in the downtown area of brattleburg and most people didn't bat a eye, the point i see is if your just nude going about your business i don't see the problem, i think they would be more concern with child molesters and rapiest than a nudist, and of course you would have the bad elements mixed in with the true nudist who would have to be dealt with like you would deal with anyone who violates the law.

I would be nude any time I could. I like to work in the yard nude, but I have to be aware ofwhether or not my neighbors are about.

If legal, probably immediately. But only if everyone knew it was legal. Yes, would be awkward if I was the only one, but if one person is unwilling to take the first step, there will be no one to follow. Being the lone leader can be frightening. However, without someone willing to stroll out alone, we will forever be confined to conformity.

I would this afternoon, but then I have a fanny pack to throw over a shoulder.ThanksJerry

Please confine your shopping to caned goods or dry packaged food aisle. I for one do not want anyone dangling in my lettace or tomatos or bending over my hamburger for that matter. May also be a problem putting your best foot forward in the refrigerated foods aisle, if you catch my drift.
Any nude activity which a percentage of the public or fellow nudists would find offensive and I include grocery shopping, driving on public roads, answering the door to strangers, and mowing the lawn nullifies any gains we have made in acceptance.
Skinny dipping has widespread acceptance in almost any group even among those whom would be reluctant to try it. Why? Because of the implied innocence and its just plain fun. If we nudists could achieve the same sort of public perception as skinny dippers we might see the opening of more CO beaches and icreases in club memberships.

Hi Mac!
My presumption in replying was that we talk about socially acceptable environment for nude shopping, as it is in certain nude resorts or some places near beaches. I also consider that any non-sexual, non-violent activity one does in private premises like own yard (mowing) or in car (driving) is in general (unless specifically restricted by local regulations) up to each and everyone and not a business of anyone else. Answering the door to strangers falls to that category, too, but as it involves interaction from close proximity, I would advice some common courtesy like wrapping a towel/sarong etc around or putting on some robe - unless a sign informing of possible nudity of the residents while opening the door.

"Community acceptance" is a phrase properly applied to many things, and this is one of them.
The photo in post #15 is George something-or-another, a confrontational "nudist" who's been known to strip
in front of police stations in San Francisco, so that he can challenge the cops, judges, anyone, on "police harassment"
of his nudity because San Francisco has no specific law prohibiting public nudity. He's one who takes the position that
if it isn't specificly prohibited, then it's acceptable. Most likely, he'll be responsible for having the law changed to prohibit
nudity in any context, if at all. "Confrontational" is bad, and I wish some of these "militants" would learn that.
In fact, in Ohio where I live, absent the "reasonable expectation" of confrontation, or "affront" there is no crime, BUT if
an "affront" could have been reasonably expected, or known, or should have known, then there is guilt of "indecent
exposure."
For me, if it's relatively common, say 30% or so of customers were nude, then I'd do it, but I'm not a confrontational
person, a militant, nor a social pioneer. I'm just a guy who enjoys being me, and will be me provided it doesn't
cause *me* undue inconvenience. As someone else said, in a crowd fine, but not by myself.
