Body-shaming is making someone feel bad about their body, and it comes in a lot of different forms. Case-in-point, year-old Jessa O'Brien's recent post on her popular blog, "The Nude Blogger," that's about the body-shaming she has endured as a thin person. As a society we have been taught that it is 'rude' to so openly and casually call someone 'fat', and so we avoid doing so in order not to be offensive.
Tom Sacold. Post by Mark I'm not at all sure what I make of this organisation, having looked at their website see previous post by Nikki. What do URN'ers think about them.?
By Ferne Arfin. Backed by a pine forest, dunes and a nature reserve, Holkham is reported to be one of the best stretches of unspoiled coastline in England. Even if you've never been to Britain, chances are, you've seen this beach.

Naked flesh sizzles in the parks, near-naked builders climb scaffolding and even in the very proper John Lewis, women browse in tops no bigger than a figleaf. Not bad for a nation known for its primness.

See past Nudes in the News in the Archives. The New York-based artist announced on Monday he will return to Australia later this year, having last visited in to photograph thousands of naked people on the steps of the Sydney Opera House. When a pair of nudists found Airbnb just wasn't natural enough for their liking, they took matters into their own hands.
Personal as well as political conflicts appear to have thwarted a court effort to overturn on constitutional grounds Seashore regulations that prohibit topless bathing and nudity on the beach. But while feminists insist that they withdrew their court appeal for political reasons, Lee Baxandall, founder of the nudist Naturist Society, claims it was dropped out of vindictiveness. Baxandall and Nikki Craft, who was the chief plaintiff in the lawsuit, both acknowledge that they were once lovers.
There were rules of decency to live by, and any group deemed to be outside the social norm — members of the LGBT communities, hippies and people with different faiths — were very often looked upon with disdain. Taught to fear my body and alternative ways of life, I never imagined I would eventually come to embrace naturism.

Pedophilia, Swinging, Pornography and Sexual Exploitation. Early in my involvement in the upper echelons of the naturist movement it became apparent I was running into a large number of pedophiles, child molesters, child pornographers and their apologists; disturbingly disproportionate for such a small, fringe group. I had never run into such a consortium of men, in various ways, abusing children; and never have since, either.
