There are nudist families, and there are nudist families where only Mom and Dad are nekked, secretly. A lot of us hide our naturist side for various reasons; the lucky (smart?) ones raise their kids that way from the start. Some of those folks send their kids to summer camp (just like real people) but nudist summer camp. Sure wish my parents had!
This absolutely outrages some people. Children subjected to being around other naked children? Sin! Sex! Pedophile counselors? What happens in these places? God only knows.
As usual, it’s just a lot of ignorant bluster from people that don’t know anything about the subject. Since they themselves cannot separate the idea of nudity from sexuality, they assume that is the case for everyone. ’Joe Legislator’ knows that pictures of little girls make him feel queasy inside, so of course everybody else must get all hot and bothered over naked little girls! ’Joe’ also is very aware that he can tap that emotion in the voters by grabbing some headlines with his campaign to rid the world of those ‘dens of iniquity’. And you know what? No one is going to dispute his charges of immorality because to do so would make them appear to be supporting pedophiles!
Nevermind that naked summer camps are just like any other except for that little nudity issue which bothers the hell out of the textile public. It doesn’t bother the kids; these kids are there because they’re comfortable in their bodies and already understand it’s a natural way of being. No one has taught them to be ashamed of their bodies…yet. The truth is: your kid is safer at a nudist summer camp than they are being an alter boy.
But this makes great tittalating news complete with children, sex, and nudity! Page one! Headlines!
The following article is written by a woman who says that she’s not a nudist (well, except at home with the family. Uh huh. Maybe a little denial there? ) and talks about her reaction to a local radio broadcast about an alleged ‘Naked Kids Camp‘ in her area.
Her head’s pretty much in the right place, too bad not everyone else’s is.
