I finally found it, after passing through all of the horrible news in Cambridgeshire. Police out of control, tasers, murder, people, anarchist, opiates, tagging, etc. It comes across as a horrid place to live, unless you like books.

So, 100 last year with 30% documented in the video....Bless their hearts.

Cambridge is a very benign area of the UK, JBee!

I have given up trying to understand anything I see these days. It's like walking through the sideshows at a carnival.

With all the social media insanity I have realized that Andy Warhol couldn't have imagined how easy it would become to prove his prediction. Most of what I read about appears to be no more than a simple attempt at attention grabbing.

Life’s but a walking shadow, a poor player
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage
And then is heard no more. It is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
Signifying nothing.

At least the Bard allowed us and hour!  ;)
Nothing of substance.

Not a nude story, but representative (er, a senator ;)) of acceptance of natural human activities.
See here.

I have an issue here that is unrelated to seeing more skin.
It has to do with what is more important, her career or her family. But, not much information about her circumstances.

I suppose it is progress of a kind.

I bumped into this as I was signing into my yahoo account. Probably an example of tracking my interests. I have noticed that the news is a very anti-Trump slant, my personal political trait, as they divide and conquer, polarize and profit.

Anyway, here is Michael Jackson's daughter, now a model, putting out a very classic pro naturist spiel. It is good to see a celebrity standing up for naturism and using her standing to promote body freedom.

On the other hand, here she is placing nearly nude photos on her web scene, getting attention like those celebrities that get stolen self nude pics or paparazzi pics published, feign shock and violation on their way to the bankable. Well, honest intention or exploitation what she has done is good and I wish her career well. Michael and Priscilla Presley's daughter were nude in a music video in the eighties. Maybe a chip off the 'ol block?

I'm gonna look up her Facebook page and see if I can thank her and encourage her.

And I wonder how much Yahoo is going to make once they sell our tendencies to the highest bidder? Not only the news and interests but I've noticed shopping also.

but Paris Jackson puts out a positive spiel and read the comments and see where everyone who commented thinks it's just to get her name out there. It becomes a double edged sword when anyone famous promotes nudity. It seems to me anyway that any entertainment name automatically becomes an attention seeking stunt.

It's nice to have an endorsement however I feel that any attempt to make nudity normal is going to have to be a grass roots effort. Once the novelty of the naked bike rides and skinny dip records fall away perhaps we can join in a movement to promote the lifestyle.

I suppose my response is predictable, but do the same thing and you get the same result. Despite what she says, this is babes and boobs all over again. It's show business, "show" meaning something on display, "business" meaning someone hopes to make money.

This kind of nonsense actually hurts us. If it seems as if the only people getting naked are the ones who fit the standard Playboy model demographic, then that's what everyone will keep associating nudity with. Why wouldn't they? Sure, she spouts some words that might sound like a naturist program, but as a model she proposes to get paid for her appearance, not her philosophy.

By the way, in the linked picture Paris Jackson isn't even naked, only topless, and even at that, she's posed so as to hide her breasts.  But part of the babes and boobs mystique is that the body is simultaneously revealed and concealed. Keep the audience wanting more, that's show biz.

Not quite naked, but it gets the young people going in the right direction of little or nothing to hide.

Black Tape and that's all.

Another nude parade in San Francisco.
« Reply #535 on: May 15, 2017, 04:05:16 PM »
Nudists in San Francisco keep demonstrating against their anti-nude ordinance.  Public demonstrations and parade events are excepted to their prohibition of nudity so the SF nudists keep organizing naked public protests and parades.   This is their latest

Considering this is a posed shot I was wondering, Is she smoking or just chose a pose that looks that way?

If she, or anyone for that matter, furthers the everyday acceptance of the nude body it’s ok by me. I continue to try and keep my philosophy separate from what I see coming from others. The different positions will always have conflicts.

Having said that I will say that I will not worship my body or anyone else’s. Maybe she doesn’t understand the meaning of the word. I will continue to not reject the attempts by others to push the belief that the human body is not worthless. If she helps in this even a little, so be it. I try to keep my personal preferences out of what others are doing . .

. . . even though it’s difficult.

i.e.
Quote
Jackson said modeling became cathartic for her.

"I've had self-esteem issues for a really, really long time," she told the magazine. "But there's a moment when I'm modeling where I forget about my self-esteem issues and focus on what the photographer's telling me -- and I feel pretty."

 “modeling became cathartic”,  “forgetting self-esteem” and “feeling pretty” ?
I get confused sometimes when people talk.

Quote from: the article
We were invited to think and feel globally, to wake up from the nightmare of corporate greed and exploitation, to heal our emotional wounds . .
Exuberance in a cause can lead to seeing connections everywhere. We cannot survive in today's world as our ancestors did. Life is more complicated now. An economy is necessary. But yes there are always those that take advantage but that is not evil. Just life.

Quote
. . celebrate the body freedom that the hippie movement spread across America and the world.
Not all of us were or are hippies. Many ideas came out of that period, some good, some downright loopy. As a witness of the events, I am able to pick and choose which ideas I consider valid. The concept of rejecting clothes as another means of social and cultural classification is one I do embrace.
This one, however I do not agree with. Promoting a method of behavioral analysis for your own use is sort of creepy.

Quote
Let’s shed our clothes. let’s shed our inhibitions, our self doubt and self hate. Let’s wake up to the love, to the flame that burns within our hearts. . . . Let’s spread love, body freedom and sexual liberation!
Self doubt is normal and can be tamed as a tool for better decision making. Self hate is taught and should be rejected.

Lack of all inhibitions and control is usually described in one word, anarchy. If you prefer that, go start your own country. Not everyone seeks no responsibility. The idea of absolute freedom requires that someone provide what you need to fulfill your desire to be completely self-indulgent. e.g. An economy. You know, those greedy bas. . .ds that are oppressing you.

Some good things came out of the 60's. Not every idea was a good one. Pick and choose the ones that are the most comfortable but be careful what you reject as flawed. Sometimes things are fine and just need a little tweaking.

Although I get your jist, I think that this interpretation is a narrow and absolutist definition of anarchy and its practice. Also, perhaps it's getting a tad too politically opinionated for here. Communities exist in several forms within this and other countries throughout history in a lacks order order, even some in anarchy. Another country should not be needed, especially here. This sounds kinda like a "Love it or Leave It" bumper sticker.

One may be better to assume that human nature is more likely to do the right thing, instead of be just a selfish child. One may even apply faith in the godness of others, or even in a belief in Godly universal direction.

 It may be added that this place is not an anarchistic state, however, there are those in control which find justification to behave like selfish children in essence, affecting the lives of millions adversely. These are the result of the environmental influence of an anti-anarchistic state.

 Jus throwing in some perspective on the relativity of a universe that as only one absolute, which is that there are no absolutes. Jus sayin'.
