The pursuit of happiness and the right to be nude

The Right To Be Nude:

Our Right to be NudeIt has dawned on me that within the declaration of independence it states that we are all created equally and with certain unalienable rights among which is the right of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. To what degree do we take this statement? In San Francisco they passed a law that prohibits nudity in public except during specific celebrations, does this infringe on our rights?

To put the answer simply, yes; however it is much more complicated than that. I heard it often said that people should wear clothes because it would infringe on their rights to not see someone’s genitals, or someone’s rear, etc.

If we could take that statement a step further, my right to clean air is constantly infringed upon from smoking, overuse of gasoline, etc. Should we then make those illegal because they infringe on my rights?

The problem with this argument is that people will then use, “Majority of people are okay or at least tolerate smoking, overuse of gasoline, etc.” It is a very unfortunate argument for the main reason individualism disappears and each person is only seen as important as the amount of people that support him or her. This deeply saddens me.

Right To Be Nude

What should be done about it? If It doesn’t create harm physically or emotionally to themselves or others, why should it be wrong? Nudism does not create physical nor emotional harm as some people would like to believe, it in fact does the exact opposite, nudism benefits everyone both emotionally, physically and can affect people spiritually too.

Some individuals are naked because they feel closer to their deity, should we prevent them from being close to their deity? I do not believe so.

We should have the right of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness and it should be unalienable just as we are all created equal. I thereby believe that nudism whether done in private or public should be allowed.

I do believe clothes have their purpose such as, cooking (especially greasy things), fire-related when it can burn us or catch us on fire (such as skin and body hair) and overall other safety purposes. Another common rule should be followed is sitting on a towel when nude for hygienic purposes.

We are nudists, naturists, nudies, etc and we do have standards and I hope in the future we will not be treated differently and our way of life will be at the very least tolerated and seen as non-sexual.
