I have recently been placed in Facebook jail for 24 hours because of an image that is part of one of my wordpress blogs “The world we live in” that I shared to my facebook account. I think what bothers me the most about the whole situation is the image shows a loving naturist family posing for a picture while out walking their dog and someone looks at this type of picture as unwholesome and damaging to the moral fibre. Facebook won’t allow this picture because it contains nudity.
Here is the picture for your opinions.
People have no issues looking at pictures that in my opinion are rather graphic in nature such as mutilated animals, images that are extremely violent in nature and even ones like the following picture.
Please help me understand why the first image is offensive and damaging to our moral fibre yet the second image is quite alright. Please help change public opinion about what is inappropriate by protesting the insanity and unfairness of Facebook and Google+ Guidelines. Make all of our voices heard and spread this message.

As Americans, we live in an insane world, where you can legally carry and conceal a gun, but risk imprisonment should anyone see your genitals. We live in a world where, under the banner of free speech, YouTube is powerless to censor the hateful Mohammed video, which offended and outraged billions of Muslims throughout the world and resulted in the deaths of many innocents, but the same First Amendment cannot tolerate the obscenity of the body we were all born into; we live in a world where children entertain fantasies of killing innocents in video games, but the sight of a nipple is unacceptable and psychologically damaging; we live in a world where a church group can rally at a gay soldier’s funeral carrying signs with “God Hates Fags”, as the police stands by powerless, but should anyone show up at the same funeral without proper clothing, they would promptly be arrested.
Inside looking out
As I read various articles and delve deeper in to the lifestyle choices outside what the majority of the world consider normal, I have discovered that there is one thing that is prevalent among all of them, the feeling that we need to hide it from everyone.
I know for a several years I chose to hide my lifestyle from people because I was afraid of what they might think or what they might say or even possibly do. I hear all the time from various people, all because I choose not to hide the fact that I am a, here I go again with that word, A NUDIST.
“OMG you’re a pervert”
“Psst, don’t go around that man or let your kids anywhere near him because he doesn’t wear any clothes.”
“You mean you let your kids see you like that?”
“OMG You’re creepy, how could you let your family (wife, son, daughter) take those kinds of pictures of you?”
“Somebody needs to call the local children’s services on you!”
“Nobody wants to see that nasty stuff.”
“They will fire you if they find out.”
“You will never get a job”
“The bible says that is a sin and you’re going to hell.”
We all have our reasons for wanting to hide our chosen lifestyle/s but fear and shame seem to be the biggest reasons. What are your reasons for not being more confident, being proud of the lifestyle you have chosen and announcing to “your world”, I AM “insert lifestyle choice here!”?
I choose to no longer hide who or what I am so for the record, here is my announcement. My name is Moe and I am a nudist, bisexual, husband, father, son, brother, christian and a biker. I think the biggest thing I am is no longer afraid.
Exposed to the world
Thanks for taking the time to read my first serious attempt at writing something that really means something to me. Please bare (pun intended) with me while I learn to do this whole blogging and writing thing.
