Thanks :) One of my versions of this blog did take a more science fiction route because the Raëlian Movement has its extraterrestrial roots. I'm not saying the Raëlians are a science fiction organization, but it did have me thinking about how nudity pops up in different future/alternate world societies, especially the utopian versions where an uninhibited society is the ideal model, while at other times it's not.
Thank you for another interesting post, Tiff!
The photo of a shirtless man and his son is very telling.
But what rises further curiosity is the presence of some works of fiction in your readings list. Would be great to hear more about what these have to say on the issue of nudity.
After attending the Topless Day Parade in Venice Beach, California August 26, 2017, I considered multiple ways I could approach this topic of nudity in parades and marches. Here are eight possible approaches to talking about nudity in this event and other parades and marches with nudity:
When I think of a parade as a puzzle, it gives me an imaginative way to think about it and its many pieces. The parade, in its entirety represents a communal effort of people gathering and creating something for themselves and public consumption. It’s a banana split extravaganza that our eyes eat up.
