It is much like lots of questions I get from people where they tell me how amazing I am and how brave and how there ‘s no way they could do that I do. And my response is an honest, confounded, “Why not?!”Anyone can do what I do. Anyone can get nude.
Anyone can discuss it. Go to a nude beach, post a picture of their body hair on the internet, make a blog post about how challenging their interval is. Individuals judge themselves so severely and are so afraid of what everybody else will believe, but we’ve only got one shot at life and I believe it’s so vital that you simply do what it is you want to do because you don’t get another chance. Eventually, we’ll all expire and no one will remember if we did that one thing that one time and one person made a snide remark. That’s not what’s going to matter.
So I figure in a short response:the best way to get over things is by only doing them.

Christian Blogger Mom’s Pleas to Teen Girls about Naked Selfies
By: Erik Jacobsen
Christian Blogger Mom, Mrs. Hall, Naked Selfies and Adolescent Girl Selfies
In a blog post written a couple of days past by Kimberly Hall who is the Manager of Women’s Ministry at All Saints Presbyterian Church in Austin, Texas adolescent girls are advised to prevent posting provocative nude selfies on their social media reports.
The difficulty, she indicates, is that her teen sons will be tempted by these photos, and will not have the ability to un-see them which may lead to all kinds of dilemmas for both her sons and the girls in question.
Few parents myself included will differ with Ms. Hall’s basic message about the need to handle our children’s existence on social media. My own daughters are likely about a few years away from being allowed to sign up these services, but I ‘ve already given a great deal of thought about how I plan to keep an eye on them.
Naked Selfies
The problem with Ms. Hall’s piece, however, is that she focuses only on the conduct of girls while entirely disregarding how her sons should behave. And while scolding girls for being in a state of undress, she exhibits several pictures of her own sons at the plage wearing only swim trunks.
According to one of Ms. Hall’s answers to those who have commented on the piece, she has received over 3,000 responses that she is working her way through a number which is far higher than the 15-20 replies that she usually receives.
I took the time to put together a somewhat-long but polite answer, which I’ve duplicated below.
I have written previously on the subject of introducing teens to nudism and nudism (see it here: Teenage Naturists ) and the challenges inherent in undertaking such educational efforts. I think it’s useful that we remind ourselves from time to time about exactly the challenges we’re up against.
Young folks finally become adults, and have the inclination carry with them the societal standards and practices they learn in their own youth.

One last note if there are any Christian naturists among you, please take time to leave a response in the comments section of Ms. Hall’s blog post. I do not know if she’ll publish all of the remarks, but I think it’d be worth alerting her to the existence of Christian nudists. As I ‘m not a Christian, I did not mention it in my comment. You can also email her at khall[at]allsaintsaustin[dot]org, which is her address at the church.
What follows is my answer to her:
Dear Mrs. Hall:
