CAPTION FOR THE VIDEO ABOVE:

Hi. Okay. This video will be a little more serious. And yeah, let’s dive in. Okay, I have had a bunch of people call me a nudist, and I have never personally used that label for myself. And this video is going to be about why I don’t use nudist as a label for myself, personally. I don’t have anything against nudists. I’ve just noticed a familiar pattern with a lot of them. That I think is kind of not so great. And yeah, so let’s talk about it.

So the first reason I don’t call myself a nudist is because people have forced that label on me enough that I’m just kind of refusing to use it because people just assume that I am and it makes me really annoyed. And I want to push back against it and say I’m not. So non-consensual labeling of me as a nudist is one of the reasons that I don’t call myself a nudist. 

Also, there’s kind of an assumption with nudist that they are always naked and never want to wear clothes, or like hate clothes. Clothes are useful and helpful sometimes so, like, I don’t hate them. Also, they’re fun for expression and stuff. So, yeah, I don’t hate clothes and I also wear them sometimes. One of the big reasons why I don’t call myself a nudist is because the nudist community seems to be pretty exclusionary and gatekeeping if I’m honest. Most of the nudist people that I’ve met or know about are cishet white men, that are usually older than me. A lot of them are like maybe Boomer age and they have money, and they have a lot of the same ideas about what nudity should be and like, how nudists should be, and it seems like a lot of them kind of hate on tattoos and body modifications and say that it’s like “violating the sanctity of the skin” or whatever, but that that doesn’t fly with me. 

A lot of the nudist spaces like nude retreats and nude resorts and stuff, a lot of them you have to have money to be able to be there. So that automatically excludes like a fuck ton of people. Obviously, like everyone has bills to pay and sometimes doing something for free is not the best idea, but if nudism is about including everyone and everyone being equal and just naked. Why is it that most nudist places are full of cishet white men that have money? That’s my question. Something about those nude spaces makes it so that people that are not cishet white men don’t feel comfortable there or don’t have access to those places.

So yeah, I am not a nudist. I don’t expect other people to be naked around me. I don’t hate clothes. I’m not always naked and I just I don’t want to be associated with a community of people that have been pretty gatekeepy from my experience. So yeah, that’s why I don’t call myself a nudist. I’m just me and I’m just naked a lot. I’d say that my nudity is more a part of my ecosexuality and like neurodivergence than anything else. I just, being naked as comfortable. I like it. There’s not that much else to it. Like it can have a lot of meaning and depth behind it. But like honestly it doesn’t have to. I can just like being naked and not be a nudist. That’s how I feel.
