To answer BlueTrain, I can cope outside in the snow and even enjoy the briskness of crispy cold, but indoor inactivity at cold temperatures soon becomes uncomfortable.

How one blogger’s swivel-eyed hysteria made something out of nothing

“Why is it the only people who get naked on a nude beach are the ones you never want to see naked?”

It’s not about YOU, stoopid!

For quite a few year# now the Scouts in the UK have accepted girls, but there’s no sign of boys being invited to join the Girl Guides (I guess our equivalent of your Girl Scouts). A bit one-sided.

Whatever our present feelings/opinions we are all the products of our upbringing and environments that have got us to where we are. We may have overcome or altered a lot of those things, but others are embedded and leave us feeling comfortable/uncomfortable without any good or easily adjustable reason.

The Calgary nude swim is back on - just has to be in secret at “an undisclosed location”

Why have mildly erotic nymphs been removed from a Manchester gallery? Is Picasso next?

Another instance of the art world getting the jitters about (female?) nudity. Is there a prudes backlash buildings?

Welcome back, Bob, I was only this morning thinking we hadn’t heard from you in a little while. Hope you’re well.

Yes. The official reason for the cancellation was protesters threatening to turn up on the night and damage vehicles in the car park. The nude swim at Edmonton offered sanctuary and had a sellout night.

Opposite reactions to two art exhibitions - one is canceled because it contains nudes, the other not only contains nudes but has sell-out audiences who view them nude.

Fully agree, though one comment piece about it that I read highlighted that this was actually a new group which, instead of taking a softly-softly approach to its first event, blasted its invitation loud and clear. As a result the ninnies and prudes were spooked and went into their usual panic, knee-jerk reaction ("what about the children!!!") which of course provoked the internet trolls to threaten violence and mayhem. If the group had been more low-key (it was argued) everything would have probably gone off peacefully.

On the one hand that sounds like blaming the victim, which is certainly not my intent. On the other hand, the organisers could have been more circumspect and foreseen the reaction of uneducated.

Just a shame that it's started off so badly, leaves them a lot of ground to make up if they want to try again. Perhaps the best we can hope for is that it starts a conversation and does actually educate a few of the numpties.

I’d add a website address or two - what’s a message without a website, this is the 21st century! - and some kind of attribution. “This message is brought to you by ...” I’m immediately suspicious of anonymous anything, it smells of rip-off. And if someone is too shy to put some kind of identifier to a campaign they must be trying to hide something. Fake news? Russians? 😶

““It's a delirium that we all have had, very motivating, to play a hermetic character in this universe and who will end up there, a critic of the society where we all seek the truth, to discover that behind the nudity there is still a lot of corruption "?”

We have all had the notion to stand outside of society, self-contained, to examine that society and find, behind the supposed openness, that there is still a lot of corruption.

Councillors have to be elected, but the council officers are employees. The staff supposedly enact the policies emplaned by the elected, but in practice they stay while the councillors come and go so get to do pretty much what they can get away with. The only real check on many of them is their own sense of probity.

An illustration of the threat to liberty in the UK posed by a law that was never intended to do this - basically any tinpot official can make up their own laws if they don’t like something. Frightening
