The issues YNA has with some judgmental nudists
Judgmental Nudists – Being involved in nudism has its issues. One such issue is that of having an open line of communication. Young Naturists America is a platform that so far has been one of the most active in educating the general public (at least in the past few years). So with that in mind, I would like to take a moment to address a very important point.
When we posted the article about swingers and nudism, we knew we would get a discussion going. That was the intent. Both Felicity and I believe in talking about issues and debating them in an open fashion.
At times the discussion opens our eyes and mind to a new approach. Other times it strengthens our beliefs. But, just like we don’t agree with the way content gets censored, we don’t believe that people have the right to impose their beliefs on others.
It is an individual’s right to be unique as long as it does not impose / hurt / damage / infringe (and so forth) on someone else’s right or ability to be the unique person that they truly are.
So while we post about certain issues, that does not mean that we subscribe to certain beliefs. In the case of the swingers post, we see no harm in being able to talk about it openly. It is a hot button topic in the nudist world but very few have been willing to truly explain what it is, what it means and so forth. At the end of the day, as long as we can discuss topics openly, we stand a chance of gaining acceptance. The way some people reacted is quite hypocritical.
Some nudists took a strong judgmental stance with regards to swinging. So to all the judgmental nudists out there, we would just like to say – if you cant accept others, why should they accept you?
