Get Rid Of laws Against Public Nudity.

If Gay can get The government to give them the right to same sex marriage,and give them all the same privileges as a tradition marriage couple has. Then nudist should petition thegovernmentto remove all laws prevent the freedom of nudistspracticing public nudity. Nudity is natural, healthy,saves money andnaturalresources . All of God's creature are nude,we come into the world nude,why is nudityforbidden. This could beissuecould besubmitted as a civil rights issue to the supreme count.Does any one agree?

We don't have enough political power to make that happen. The primary reason we lack political power is our reluctance to identify ourselves as naturists and demand our rights.

We lack the courage. In New Jersey, for example, it's solidly established law that anywhere a man can be without a shirt, so can a woman. Seen any topless women walking the streets of Camden? I thought not. Of course, whoever goes first is going to be mobbed with catcalls and other sorts of attention; it would take years, and thousands.
The gay movement succeeded in part because people started coming out, in an era when doing so was genuinely dangerous, leading to loss of job, housing, children, family connection, and very possibly to violence or jail. It took a generation for the strangeness to wear off. Any nudists ready to take those risks?

One of the things I pointed out the we have very little political clout because so few nudists will join a national rights group or political action committees, PAC's, to further our cause. If you agree with the premise of this thread and want to work on it in some small way, then you should join groups like AANR or TNS, or both. DesertRat, AANR Member.

I have posted several links to petitions which could be signed to establish new clothing optional beaches. The response was close to nothing. How can we expect new rights for nudists when the nudists, themselves, don't express the desire to receive theserights?

I believe I should have the right to be nude in my house or on my property within reasonable expectations of privacy. I also think there should be areas set aside on public lands where one can expect to see others in the nude. By the same token, others should have the right not to see someone in the nude if they do not wish to do so. I don't believe someone should walk down the middle of Main St. without their clothes. Perhaps if we respect their rights, they will respect ours. I don't see how gay marriage has anything to do with this. Gays marrying has no effect on my rights.

And money talks. Until naturists can buy some politicians and/or show big tourist dollars at stake they won't care about us.

It's amazing how we are so accepting of unnatural sexual acts between people of the same gender, yet so afraid of admitting we enjoy the freedom of natural nudity.
