New Jersey Lawmaker Launches Plan To Ban ‘Upskirt’ Photos « CBS New York http://newyork.cbslocal.com/2014/03/07/new-jersey-lawmaker-launches-plan-to-ban-upskirt-photos/
"A plan has been launched to make what is called “upskirting” illegal in New Jersey.
State Sen. Thomas H. Kean Jr. (R-Westfield) said he plans to introduce a bill to ban anyone from taking secret photos from another person’s private areas.
Kean said he is still working on it, but one option is to consider upskirting an invasion of privacy.”

Upskirting embarrassment finally motivates Beacon Hill - If only gov’t could respond so quickly to important issues - http://www.bostonglobe.com/opinion/editorials/1969/12/13/upskirting-embarrassment-finally-motivates-beacon-hill-act/7BQs0ZBtgAmZLE1y29CLdO/story.html
"Lawmakers say they are sending a powerful message to voyeurs. But there’s another message here, as well. When it was only the occasional victim who suffered embarrassment by the actions of voyeurs, lawmakers dragged their feet. When the Legislature itself faced humiliation, its members jumped into action."

Opinion: what are we really talking about when we talk about “buck-naked men” at the Pride parade? http://www.torontolife.com/informer/toronto-politics/2014/03/07/toronto-pride-sam-sotiropoulos-naked-men/
"Not only is Doug Ford’s characterization homophobic, it’s also ageist and fat-shaming. Equally concerning is the near-complete absence of queer women in this discussion. Neither Doug Ford nor Sotiropoulos appear to have any problem with exposed breasts at Pride Week events. The Dyke March, which attracts thousands of women in varying states of nudity, gets almost no attention from these men, leaving the impression that sexualized women are perfectly fine, whereas naked men are obscene, distasteful, or even dangerous."

"We got used to seeing naked people. I remember one late night at the Krystal when I looked up and saw a guy as naked as he came in the world standing in line waiting to give his order. All he had on were his tennis shoes.
The funny thing was that nobody was even paying attention to him.”
My Awesome, Saggy Breasts | Bare To Bush http://www.baretobush.com/saggy-breasts/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=saggy-breasts
"So what if my breasts sag, or if they’ve got stretch marks? They’re mine and they’re part of who I am and I need to love them and be happy with them in whatever shape they take on. Saggy breasts, perky breasts or no breasts, I’m still me and I can’t let their shape and size get in the way of how I feel about myself. My body is awesome and dynamic. It’s a living, breathing organism that changes and shows signs of wear and evolves and grows and shrinks. It’s fucking cool. "
Seventh Circuit Strikes Down Basketball Team’s Short Hair for Boys Policy | Dressing Constitutionally http://www.dressingconstitutionally.com/2014/03/07/seventh-circuit-strikes-down-basketball-teams-short-hair-for-boys-policy/
"Unconvinced by the school’s reasoning, the Court ultimately declared the policy unconstitutional “because the hair-length policy on its face treats boys and girls differently, and because the record tells us nothing about any comparable grooming standards applied to girls playing basketball.” The Court implied that the school could still ban “an Age-of-Aquarius, Tiny-Tim, hair-crawling-past-the-shoulders sort of hair style” for boys if it so wanted — in the meantime, the school cannot force all boys to have a crew cut."
To be honest, this is why I love being naked outdoors.

Beautiful Inside & Out: Reina’s Story - A Beautiful Body Project http://www.abeautifulbodyproject.com/the_practice_of_feeling_beautiful_inside_out_reina_s_story#.UxoEBvldV8E
"I have ever present images of big round fake boobs in my head from childhood as how they are “supposed” to be. But no. They aren’t. Most people know that, but I have had to spend a good amount of time staring at mine from all angles and having the same conversations over and over with my self. “This is what your mama body looks like, it is beautiful, you are beautiful”… I’m still learning to accept my body the way it is. For what it’s worth having my son was worth it. “Body ruiner”….ha! more like life changer! Because of him I’ve become aware that I will always have this struggle because it is so a part of who I am. I like “looking nice” or well groomed and put together sometimes, but the obsession seeps in and shit needs to be checked, and around and around I go."

Sexuality as social construct: Foucault is misunderstood by conservatives and liberals. http://www.slate.com/blogs/outward/2014/03/04/sexuality_as_social_construct_foucault_is_misunderstood_by_conservatives.html
"In The History of Sexuality, Foucault writes that Western society’s views on sex have undergone a major shift over the past few centuries. It’s not that same-sex relationships or desires didn’t exist before—they definitely did. What’s relatively new, though, is 1) the idea that our desires reveal some fundamental truth about who we are, and 2) the conviction that we have an obligation to seek out that truth and express it.
Within this framework, sex isn’t just something you do. Instead, the kind of sex you have (or want to have) becomes a symptom of something else: your sexuality.”

Where to get naked in NYC http://www.timeout.com/newyork/things-to-do/where-to-get-naked-in-nyc
"Sally Golan has mastered the art of the social icebreaker: At her Naked Painting Party, mingling is fueled by brushes, pigments and an hour of free cocktails. Golan emphasizes that the shindig is about having fun painting each other’s bodies, not hooking up: Voyeurism, personal photography and X-rated activity are not allowed, and behavior monitors ensure that everyone is comfortable and having a good, creep-free time. “I don’t like gawkers because it’s all about the participation,” she says. “My rule of thumb is: Drop your inhibitions, but keep your respect.” Still feeling shy? Guests are welcome to keep their underwear on—just be willing to sacrifice any garments in the name of art."

""A lot of it has to do with how the police have been handling the whole situation," he continued. "I assume that that’s coming from some level of city government. When the ordinance was enacted, it basically prohibited people from exposing their genitalia on public streets and sidewalks—there’s a list of places. There’s an exception, though, for parades, fairs and festivals. The Folsom Street Fair, for example, is exactly what they had in mind the Gay Pride parade there’s another smaller version of Folsom Street called Up Your Alley—these are places where traditionally there’s been some nudity and it hasn’t been a problem, and so my clients, seeking to express their free speech rights, applied for a number of permits and the applications were either ignored or rejected on pretext, so they tried to bring themselves within the exception in the statute and the city basically wouldn’t let them.""
In Defense of Nude Celebrities - MSN TV News http://tv.msn.com/tv/article.aspx?news=275194
"The proverbial scales fell from my eyes when I heard that Vanessa Hudgens of "High School Musical" was in hot water over a certain fleshy photo circulating around the Internet.
It wasn’t that the sight of her smiling nubile form caused retinal damage. She actually looked pretty darned good in it, like the sort of cheerleader it was fun to resent in high school. Rather, I realized that much of the furor over naked celebrities is moronic.
We’re born naked. We remove our clothes daily to shower. And even when we put those clothes back on, we’re all still naked underneath…”
