Friday Footnote: Bullying!

Friday footnote!

This Friday Footnote is related to the recent posting for stopping gay bullying.

Reference post entry link:

Spirit Day, 2022!

The minority is clothed in a swimsuit!

Bullying and/or intimidation?

The guy above wearing a swimsuit is the only textile man at this pool party. All of his buddies are eager to skinny dip (swim naked). Was this situation planned in advance? Did someone forget to inform our “minority” that this was a skinny-dipping event?

If that were the case, then all the suited guy needs to do is simply remove his swimsuit and join in the fun! Unless, of course, he is extremely modest or totally discomforted by his nakedness – or the nudity of others.

Was this entire gathering designed to intimidate?

Comfort or discomfort?

As bare practitioners, we all need to make certain that we are not engaged in bullying and/or intimidating others. Many of us have experienced this ourselves because of our same gender loving ability or our preference for nudity when possible.

We understand the feeling it can create.

Two wrongs do not make anything right, fair or proper.

Be honest. Be equal. Do the correct thing! No bullying allowed!

Naked hugs!

  1. Back in 1980 I was vacationing in Germany and Austria with a mostly retired group from the Boston area. I was one month shy of my 27th birthday approximately. We were at a hotel and I was at the pool and then went to where the sauna was. Since all the guys in the sauna were nude and well built I unlike myself, I said best to be nude and not feel out of place.
    The year before I was vacationing in Venice, Florida. I was walking down Caspersen Beach and back in the dunes I see this head pop up and then go back down. My curiosity tells me to walk back that way. I see this guy nude and he asks if I want to sit. So I drop my suit and sit and we chat. That was basically my first time being nude on a beach and have been going there every time I’d vacation here. The dunes no longer exist due to beach erosion, but I live down here now and go nude there when I can. I just wish they would make it a clothing optional beach for that area.

  2. Thanks Roger for this beautifully written and inspiring piece.
    Let me tell you, I’ve had my fair share of bullying and intimidatioin from both males and females. I was and still am I very reserved and introverted individual. I was bullied as a young boy at school and as a young man at work.
    As a bare practioner I know first hand, how painful it can be, so I see it as my duty to offer gentleness, kindness encouragement, love and care. Especially towards my fellow minorities. Nude Hugs

  3. I do not tolerate bullying of any kind, to myself or others, and certainly would not engage in it ever. (I was constantly bullied horribly growing up, at home and at school.)

    When I had a home with an in-ground pool, my friends had an open invitation to enjoy the pool, but knew I would always swim and sunbathe naked. They also knew they were also welcome to, but none were obligated to. Without any pressure, even the most shy and timid of friends eventually stripped off their suits and joined in the fun…although some waited until dark to do so. 🙂
