I always thought, that the Idea of Nudism is about body acceptance and tolerance towards people.The idea that people can be accepted for who they are, what they are and what body types they have. It seems to me that it’s not true with a lot of Nudist groups. I for one have experienced my fair share of nudist discrimination because my body type is not a normal male or female. I have been discriminated by a website called Nudistclubhouse.com because I am an intersex person and not a normal biological male or female.
For some strange reason before I left college for winter break, I was doing fine with the group. Until one day when I tried to log on to Nudist clubhouse site, I was turned away for no reason or any prior notice. I did not receive any prior notice that my profile or account was being dropped. It pissed me off and made me bitter that a group would drop my profile without any notice.
You wonder why Nudism has an aging problem and a problem of accepting of LGBT and Intersex Nudist. Nudism now has an age problem because it’s greying and there are not of younger nudist coming in. The younger generation that are nudist are not the same as the older generation and it’s why there is a big disconnect. It’s also why the Younger generation Nudist are more accepting of LGBT & Intersex nudist than the older generation. Which is why the older generation often wonders why there are not any younger generation nudist. It’s simply because the older generation is not keeping up with the times.
As an Intersex person and a Nudist, I often have to fight hard to be accepted as a nudist because most nudist have never met a Naked Intersex body and most don’t understand or know what an Intersex person is. It’s a constant fight to tell people what it means to be born intersex and explain all the time what Intersex is.
So if the idea of nudism is about body acceptance and tolerance. Where is the body acceptance and tolerance for LGBT and Intersex Nudist. It seems to me Nudism has a long, long way to go in body acceptance and tolerance. Even acceptance of LGBT and Intersex people within the Nudist community needs to be addressed and worked on. It’s why Intersex people like myself who are Nudist will continue to work on getting mainstream nudist to accept LGBT people and Intersex people within the Intersex community.
