Quote from: JohnP
This is an area where we could really use some input from women, which I hope would push us toward a more inclusive style of imagery. But that doesn't seem likely.
I agree wholeheartedly!
Occasionally a woman will show up on this site, but not stick around.
I have no new insights here. Sorry!

Quote from: Bob
Los Vegas PD kills naked man.
Bob, the article didn’t say he was killed. The link you provided was posted by someone using information culled from other sources. The local newspaper had the story in a very brief form on Saturday a week ago. The same paper had a follow-up with more information.

The police were responding to a man who was tripping on LSD, marijuana and alcohol who, in the middle of his episode appears, carrying a weapon, at a church that happens to have children attending classes. He was shot in the shoulder which rendered him unable to do any harm. In an unknown situation the police use standard procedures until new information becomes available.

Could they have taken him without shooting him? Maybe, but PCP addicts are known to require multiple officers to subdue them and they didn’t know what he was on. This writer appears to expect the police to be omnipotent and omniscient.

I have reached the point that I barely believe anything I read online. The newspaper article, that I linked above, prompted me to check this out. Instant responses on blogs or twerp accounts to unverified sources result in bad and wrong information, which is almost as bad as no information.

I doubt seriously that the man was high on three different substances because of events out of his control. He did that to himself. If you want to do that, go ahead, but stay at home. Don’t go out and expect the public and the court system to baby-sit you.

I don’t have an issue holding the police accountable when they get it wrong, but flash judgements do harm also. The man was wounded, not killed and the nudity was a byproduct of his delirium and probably not born out of a naturist lifestyle.

Carrying a weapon near a school while high on hallucinogens is gonna get you arrested, period.
Not very bright.

The stock images of the svelte men and women can be replaced, but as long as the mindset remains the same, all your doing is a dog and pony show. It’s nothing more than a sales pitch.

And the new images we prefer cannot be provided as long as those images are illegal, whether paper or realtime. Unfortunately sexy and erotic advertising is accepted and isn’t likely to change anytime soon.
The stereotypes are firmly in place.

I have been frequenting tumblr, twitter, and a few others lately.   I do it to post selfies of my old man self.   I have noticed that there are many naked photos posted ever day far outside the stereotype "sexy" young model image.  Some on-line groups such as "sexy senior ladies" and Indian Nudes post nudes daily.  Many individuals also post their own photos.  There are some advertisements for porn pages with young model stereotype photos, but they do not dominate my feed on tumblr or twitter.  A couple of lesser known social sites "MeWe" and Similar Worlds also feature a lot of ordinary people nudes. 

The porn advertisers and Big commercial media may still stick with svelte models, but they are beginning to be crowed out by ordinary people posting their own photos.  Ordinary people are sharing nude photos the way Facebook people post photos of their dinner.  Its happening, and we all need to encourage it.

The dog got loose, he bolted and was shot from behind within two seconds, a blink of an eye. He was shot for that. The shooting wasn't necessary, justified, or reasonable. Obviously he was not in a sane condition and just as obviously he was not armed. Nice to know that he isn't dead. That was very poor police work and they should get strong repercussions for their piss poor performance. Also, a lawsuit.

PCP can affect certain personalities, just as much as any fear response. Still, They had no idea what was up with this unarmed naked man. Because you think that he may be difficult to apprehend isn't enough to just shoot him down. That means that any big guy under arrest should be shot, like Michael Brown. Use armed force as the very last choice. Everybody is innocent until proven guilty and there is no crime with the penalty being to be shot. Crazy people resisting arrest isn't a crime warranting being shot. These cops acted like their response was reasonable and procedural. I find that very scary. We are paying for armed lethal thugs, when we need officers that value life and will protect us, not just make their arrests easier by committing murder, assault, and shootings.

That guy who stopped me for a traffic violation the other night was more than reasonable. He was polite, and helpful. He was there to protect, eliminate problems, and prevent problems. He wasn't there to punish, or to find something wrong just to make his reports look good. The result was that I got my act in order and a fine wasn't necessary. That is law that I can respect and support.

She pointed out her opinion that the European mainland looked at Britain as kinda goofy about clothes. I wonder what they think of the extreme weirdness of the Americas and more specifically USA.

Anyway, good for her. I'd love to know such a show is on the air with such good values being presented.

If Kate gets her way it will have very good values very well presented.

She's living with a producer. Maybe it gets produced, if she is that big about it.

Not sure exactly what she has in mind. I guess this is one of those ideas that you float to see whether it catches on. She didn’t have any specifics listed as far as program ideas.

Quote from: article
. . . she wonders why the there hasn't been a naked nature show named 'Nude Watch'
As in “Birdwatching”? Let’s watch to see what those nude people are up to. If you have normal boring people minding their own business only they’re naked, I guess success would be the eventual canceling of the show because everyone thinks it’s too normal and boring.

naturists were "ecologically-minded folk" who preferred family breaks in their birthday suits, while nudists just stripped off to avoid tan lines and don't pick up litter.

At last we have a definition of the difference between "nudist" and "naturist."

I think the important thing about the Kate Humble article is that she freely and publicly talked about being a naturist.
So far she hasn't been vilified by social media or sacked by the BBC for it (as far as I know) so there's yet hope that her honesty and forwardness will make it easier for more people to share their naturism publicly and so notch up another small rung on the ladder of emancipation.


Typical tabloid bankrupt journalism btw, in that they include a totally irrelevant bit of interview about something unconnected.

'Which bit landed first?' Today's Lisa Wilkinson and Sylvia Jeffreys make VERY rude jokes during interview with naked skydiver... who is left looking very awkward by X-rated comments.

ric, maybe seeing naked vacations as an option will bring nudity to a more normal aspect in options when people are putting together their travel.

Quote from: the article
They interview everyone from politicians to celebrities on their breakfast show.
Pardon me, but the spectrum from politician to celebrity is pretty small and I wouldn’t broadcast that as an achievement. These days the lines between those two groups are getting verrry blurry. And the combining of the two groups has dumbed down both.

The resulting on air chatter is an indicator of the composite IQ of the entire lot. Politician, celebrity and interviewer.
