RECENTLY ON TOL:
- A tumblr site dedicated to the people and places that make up Oregon and Southwest Washington.
I think that this is a very appropriate topic for the population of Oregon, in particular, considering the sizable nudist culture.
Personally, I think that more nudity could be a useful tool in acquainting people with what average human bodies look like, as opposed to the extreme versions we are normally exposed to through advertising and adult entertainment.
Allowing nudity would not effect the standards that businesses and public institutions (such as schools) are able to require under the law (e.g.: no shoes, no shirt, no service).
Public nudity does not necessarily mean public sex.
I seems like obvious discrimination to allow men to go shirtless and women to not.
If public nudity were only allowed as a form of protest, I think it would still be a useful tool. Last summer I happened upon a naked bicycle event and found it to be attention getting, at the least.
As a form of art, I believe that even partially clad people can be more intriguing to gaze at when a fashion accentuates or over-accentuates attributes that might go less noticed otherwise. I, personally, find the completely nude form to be, generally, uninteresting, even on attractive people. So the saying goes, "If you've seen one, you've seen 'em all."
