War on Male Nudity

Return to Discussions

The United States of America is greatly divided in many things. One subject of division is male nudity, and in all places, in the men's locker room. Only 40 years ago this was not a big issue. What I find surprising is that when I did research on this subject the issue on male nudity is divided between people of the same political parties, same religions or non-religions, same genders, same moral views, from the same regions (Rural and Urban), same generations, and living the same lifestyle. So what is it about male nudity that is causing a large division in the United States? You can't blame it on Politics, Religion, Lifestyle, Beliefs, or Locations. Right now the idea of generation differences and anti masculinity is being pushed in the public's eyes. Is that how the average American thinks? I don't personally believe the average American even cares.

RE:War on Male Nudity

I'm wondering if it is the increase in numbers of middle eastern men of a particular religion who are pushing against open nudity in the male locker rooms ADDED to, the modern design of locker rooms / showers where the communal open showers with 5 or more shower heads sharing the same shower 'trough' has been replaced with very private shower cubicles. Men of a certain age range still seem mohave no problem undressing in front of their peers, while their children are more apt to do the 'towel dance' - IF they even shower at all.

I doubt if the additional number of certain ethic or religious groups had much to do with it, since it started well before they were here in significant numbers.
People on other boards have suggested that it might be a result of increasing awareness of homosexuailty that makes straingt males reluctant to be nude in communal situations.
