Che il topless sia la normalità!

Topless in Central Park

Ecco la traduzione di un articolo di Calyse Tobias, pubblicato di recente sul sito del San Jose Mercury News, a proposito del topless come strumento per raggiungere la parità dei sessi e la piena dignità della donna come essere umano. Le considerazioni che l’autrice svolge con riferimento al contesto americano sono perfettamente adattabili alla realtà italiana. Ma non solo: analoge considerazioni possono essere formulate per arrivare alla conclusione che la normalità della nudità è la strada maestra che conduce alla de-sessualizzazione del corpo e alla riscoperta del valore dell’essere umano. Infatti, abituarsi alla nudità significa anche acquisire «la capacità di vedere uomini e donne come persone, anziché come oggetti sessuali».

Oggi gli uomini vanno in giro sulle spiagge e per strada a petto nudo, e nessuno si fa grossi problemi. Al contrario, se una donna dovesse camminare lungo la strada scoprendo il seno, la gente reagirebbe con incredulità e disapprovazione. Direbbe che è una sgualdrina. Il seno femminile è sinonimo di molte cose. Una è il sesso.

Dico con orgoglio di essere una femminista. Quest’estate ho intenzione di partecipare a un evento pubblico in favore del topless femminile a San Francisco. Marcerò a seno scoperto insieme ad altre donne in topless, esercitando e difendendo il mio diritto di farlo. Molte organizzazioni si battono per questo diritto, fra cui Topfreedom, Free The Nipple eGoTopless. Sebbene in California andare in giro a seno nudo sia legale, le donne che lo fanno – comprese quelle che allattano al seno – corrono il rischio di essere arrestate con l’accusa di “condotta disordinata”. Sono proprio convinta di fare questa protesta, perché non c’è nulla di sessuale nel godersi una bella giornata calda in città insieme a persone che condividono le mie stesse idee.

Uomo nudo Da un punto di vista anatomico, la funzione primaria delle mammelle di una donna è quella di fornire latte ai suoi figli. Molte persone sono attratte dai seni, ma questo non significa che essi siano intrinsecamente sessuali. Molte persone sono anche attratte dal petto degli uomini, e in particolare dai suoi muscoli. Pettorali, addominali e muscoli del collo sono tutti oggetto di desiderio. Eppure, lo scopo di questi muscoli è quello di far muovere il corpo. Ogni desiderio che essi suscitano dev’essere considerato come una loro funzione secondaria.

La circostanza che il seno femminile sia considerato come una cosa essenzialmente sessuale, è il risultato di una sessualizzazione della donna. Nella società americana le donne sono oggettivizzate. Ciò significa che sono viste più come oggetti sessuali che come persone. Dire alle donne di coprirsi, perché il loro seno scoperto è indecente, è frutto di un punto di vista limitato e misogino, per il quale le donne sono soltanto oggetti sessuali per l’uso maschile. Le donne sono sessualizzate, ma non possono essere sessuali. Le donne non possono vincere in questa situazione: o sono “sgualdrine”, o sono “bacchettone”, mai esseri umani.

Uno sguardo alla storia rivela che un tempo negli Stati Uniti agli uomini non era permesso mostrarsi pubblicamente a petto nudo. Nel 1935, dopo che un gruppo di uomini era stato arrestato in massa e multato per essere stato a petto scoperto su una spiaggia di Atlantic City, New Jersey, i funzionari della città affermarono: “Non vogliamo gorilla sulle nostre spiagge!” Ma gli uomini si batterono per il loro diritto e appena l’anno successivo il New Jersey approvò una legge che permetteva loro di stare pubblicamente a petto nudo. Negli anni seguenti leggi analoghe furono adottate gradualmente anche negli altri Stati. Ancor oggi, nel 2014, alle donne è espressamente vietato di stare in topless in 17 Stati. In Francia le donne possono stare legalmente a seno scoperto sulle spiagge e nei parchi. La morale della società francese non è decaduta.

Coloro che si oppongono al topless femminile sostengono che esso inciterebbe gli uomini a violentare le donne. Questo modo di pensare, tuttavia, pone a carico delle donne la responsabilità di prevenire gli stupri. Una strategia più efficace sarebbe forse quella di insegnare agli uomini che non bisogna fare violenza. I corpi delle donne non sono inviti aperti alla violenza sessuale. Facendo coprire il seno alle donne, si rinforza l’idea che il seno esiste soltanto per il piacere degli uomini e si afferma che le donne sono oggetti sessuali, piuttosto che esseri umani che meritano rispetto. Gli uomini continueranno a sentirsi titolari di un diritto sul corpo delle donne, se quest’ultimo continua a essere rappresentato solo come oggetto sessuale. Il topless femminile è in grado di togliere alle donne quest’aura di sessualità nascosta e tentatrice e di indurre gli uomini a vedere che le donne sono esseri umani come loro.

Donna nuda Immaginate se gli uomini fossero costantemente descritti come oggetti sessuali per l’uso femminile. Agli uomini si direbbe di essere rispettosi con se stessi e di coprirsi il petto, le braccia e altre parti del corpo per paura di provocare le donne. Questo messaggio rivolto agli uomini circa la conservazione della loro “purezza” può sembrare ridicolo, ma è quello che la società nel suo insieme manda continuamente alle donne. Perché dobbiamo proteggere gli occhi dei ragazzi dal seno delle donne, se non proteggiamo allo stesso modo gli occhi delle ragazze dal petto degli uomini?

Le donne possono solamente immaginare cosa si provi a sottrarsi all’immagine sessualizzata dei loro corpi e ad andare in giro in topless come fanno gli uomini. Una volta che ci rendiamo conto che le leggi che vietano il topless sono oppressive e sessiste, diventa chiaro quanto sia importante per entrambi i sessi avere il diritto di stare a petto scoperto. La capacità di vedere uomini e donne come persone, anziché come oggetti sessuali, è di fondamentale importanza. Non possiamo più trattare le donne come cittadini iper-sessualizzati di seconda categoria. Non possiamo portare avanti un’immagine disumana delle donne. Quando avremo ottenuto il diritto di stare in topless in tutti i 50 Stati Uniti, l’uguaglianza dei sessi sarà un passo più vicina alla sua realizzazione.

Tradotto da Normalizing female toplessness would be a key step toward gender equality, respect.

Naturism And The Search For Self

It is a good day to stay inside where it is dry and warm.It is a good day to stay inside where it is dry and warm.

As you can see, the weather outside is frightful with the wind gusting up to 100 km/h bending over trees and the rain blurring reality as I look out the window. Inside, my four visiting grandsons are busy with computer games, eating, running around the house and listening to music. This is definitely not one of those peaceful times that one associates with retirement. It is definitely not a day for being skyclad. All of that said, it is a good day because of the presence of my grandchildren, a loving wife and a warm home.

In a few days, silence will again fill the house and the temperature should move from today’s high of 15 C. (60 F.) to a summery high of 30 C. I will have time enough for sunbathing in our yard, and taking hikes into the countryside where I can perhaps hike some of the distance while nude. In the plans are a visit by my wife and I to Helios, a naturist campground community near Edmonton en route to hiking in the Canadian Rocky Mountains by Jasper, Alberta.

An image from Norway that asks this eternal question.An image from Norway that asks this eternal question.

I have been spending some time writing for a winter project which involves presenting Jungian psychology concepts while interweaving a bit of Buddhism and Naturism into those presentation. The first presentation is all about “self.”

Most people take great pains to create a self-image that they come to believe is the truth about who they are. Teenagers are famous for this as they adopt clothing styles and attitudes that will mark them as individuals, as unique. Yet for all the effort, all we are doing is creating barriers that hide the truth of who we are. We are investing most of our identity in our camouflage. The camouflage is not just the clothing we choose to hide behind; our camouflage involves what we do, our societal roles, our relationship roles, our games with ourselves. We get lost in a minefield that has been created by our minds.

Naturism is one path by which we can begin to recover what we have lost. It isn’t the only thing we need to do if we are to regain the wholeness of self. But, it is a good start.

Why Nude Photos are Important to Naturism

Why Nude Photos are Important to Naturism:

“The nude human body is the core of our lifestyle, it’s what defines our philosophy and our outlook.  And when discussing our way of living, how can we describe it?  Sure I can drone on forever about nude recreation in words and sentences.  However, nothing describes who we are or what we believe than a picture. Many of my readers recall that my own foray into naturism began by seeing images of non-sexual nudity.  Naturist photos act like ambassadors to non-naturists, demonstrating what nude recreation is like.”

“Why be a nudist? I have been asked why anyone would want to participate in something that seemly few people choose as a lifestyle, or even understand for that matter. What’s the idea?No one is born ashamed of their body. If you had never been told to cover up and you had always seen nude people from time to time would it be a big deal?For some nudism is just about the feeling of the air, water and sun on the skin and the comfort of not being restricted in clothing. Nobody showers or bathes in a bathing suit, right? Most people will try kicking pajamas off when they are warm under the covers. Anyone will run from the bathroom to the bedroom if they think they won’t get caught. Most people can relate to this.

It’s the concept of social nudity that becomes a sticking point. Some equate nudity with poverty and humiliation. Some think nudity is only about sex. Some just hate the way they look. Some people just have a phobia like others have with spiders or public speaking.

What happens if you don’t think that way? What if you think the human body is a work of art? Or scientifically amazing? What if you think all body parts are just parts we all have? What if you think both genders are equal? What if you can control your sex drive? What if you are not humiliated? What if you try social nudity and find your fear goes away?

Clothing does not grow into our skin and become a part of us. It is an artificial covering. It’s use is arbitrary from burkas to bikinis, space suits to speedos. The rules for clothing are just ideas that change by place or time.

The traditions of a culture build over thousands of years. Old ideas are traded for new ideas but the old ideas never completely go away. Layers of thinking eventually bring change but most people just go with the prevailing thought of their time.

In some cultures nudity faces little opposition and is not considered a specific alternate lifestyle. You can see nudity in newspapers and in tv commercials and is not such a big deal. In other cultures it is outlawed and you could face death by being nude in public. It’s all just opinions and ideas.

Nudism is an idea too. It’s a philosophy, it’s a social statement, it reflects values and morals. It’s a way of honoring and showing respect to humanity. It’s about equality, liberty and even community. Its about being ok with yourself and accepting of others. Get the idea?

Playa Luna – Chile’s secluded nudist Paradise

Playa Luna, a lovely beach just north of Valparaiso, is one of the few (if only) official nude beaches on the Pacific coast of South America. Its sands are perfect for laying out and its waters are perfect for taking a swim to cool off.  A cave in the rocky cliffs that surround the beach provides a nice escape for those seeking some shelter from the heat.

On the way to Playa LunaOn the way to Playa Luna

Nestled near the sleepy fishing village,  Horcón, Playa Luna is a short bus ride north from Valparaiso or Viña del Mar.  The tiny village of Horcón  delights visitors with its laid back vibe and friendly locals. Horcón is a great place to chill for a couple of days and a great place to store your backpack while you do some camping on the beach.   There are hostels  that seem to always have room for the stray backpacker.

Fishing boats taking a break

The beach closer to the town can be busy on weekends and during vacation time.  Vendors walk along selling beers and sea shell necklaces to the sun worshipers.  But even on busy days the chill energy prevails.   A nice little restaurant right near the beach offers fresh fish caught that day and is the perfect spot  to sit with a beer and watch the pelicans munch on the fishermen’s leftovers.

Hungry PelicansTo get to the nude beach of Playa Luna,  head north along the sand past the fishing boats (if facing the ocean take a right).  The walk is moderately long and stunningly beautiful.  Make sure to bring water and other provisions, and even a tent if you feel like camping on the beach.     The further north you go the less people you will encounter until  eventually you will see  a rock formation with a cave at the end of the beach, this is Playa Luna.  Strip down and enjoy.  There will be a few people getting a full body tan and the occasional jogger who is sneaking a peek.   As is the norm at most naturist spots, all the nudist types there are super chill.

Playa Luna usually is a primarily gay spot, but all are welcome.  The ocean there is great for taking a dip, but be careful as there is no lifeguard and there can be some major riptides.   Get naked and enjoy the sun!
