It is quite possible persons choosing Clothing Free recreation or the lifestyle on a daily basis will be discriminated against in exactly the same ways extremely beautiful people occasionally treated. ..Or very unfit people, or alternately-enabled people.. Because the natural tendency of people is to make presumptions about “who” people are at the moment, our intentions or what we are capable of doing.
This is another behavior some of us hope to change, because as I have written in Naturism as a Way of Living, people come in "packages" of all shapes, sizes, colors and capabilities. Some can run faster than the wind, some are super-strong, and some can add or multiply numbers faster than a person with a calculator, but all of these people deserve respect for the things they choose to do (or do well).
Just because someone enjoys spending hours working out in a gymnasium, reading physics books in a library, making holiday ornaments out of cookie dough or whatever, does NOT mean they are worth more or less than someone else! We already believe ‘All men are created equal’ and I believe this MAY extend to how each of us is paid for our labor, or artistic efforts, or whatever we do.
If one person is capable of creating one product millions want to buy and use, this should not mean they are paid millions of dollars, not when those millions of dollars could employ OTHER workers and diversify a company, corporation or product line! Each person should be paid a living wage adjusted to the cost of living in the city or country where they reside.
And with choosing a lifestyle, religion or philosophy for living, no one person should be condemned or exalted BECAUSE of the way they exist – whether it be clothed or unclothed, democratic or socialist, heterosexual or homosexual. We are all unique and specially impassioned with desires for living, achieving things and surviving, although some may not be as focused and intense as others.
Simply lumping people in to groups and judging them as “fit”, “unfit”, “hopeful” or “hopeless” is a difficult things to LIVE with, and condemning people because they live life by a different set of ideals, beliefs or philosophies is NOT something we should promote, reward or be proud of in any way, at any time. This is the failing of extremist groups, and hopefully this will limit the growth of these groups or lead them down a path to oblivion. Only the groups with clear benefits to people should grow, thrive and attract followers!
I hope these strong words inspired by a strong image are as meaningful to you when reading them as to me when I wrote them.
