Thanks darlin' by littlestar (4.00 / 3) #8 Wed Jan 28, 2009 at 01:49:44 PM EST
It's funny that I've been thinking a lot lately about how odd North Americans are about nakedness. (Which really isn't where this idea stemmed from at all, it was from the I'm cold and want to be warm aspect.) This has been mainly because of taking my children to the new Y (which I LOVE!!!). There are two sets of change rooms to choose from for me, the 'Family/Special Needs" room, or the "Female General" room. So, I had always chosen alone and with my two children to go to the 'Female General". Most of my reason is that the other room is both sexes and it boldly tells you not to dare to be naked or partially clothed in the main room (to change you enter one of the large stalls of which there are five) then cart your crap back to the locker you have procured. That seemed annoying to me. It's so much easier to go into the chicks change room, sit in front of my locker and change the kids and myself and then walk away from the locker (after finding a way to close it).

So, one day while I was doing this a lady (around 35ish) asked whether I knew about the family rooms, I said yes don't want them. She looked confused.
"Well I have children" she said, "and I know that I don't want my children having to see naked ladies, so you know, I thought..."
"I am a naked lady" I replied, and smiled. She mumbled something or other and pulled her towel tighter around her body.

I then began wondering if I HAD to go to the family room, something I had seriously never even thought of, I mean, the the BamBam man is only three for petes sakes. So, then next day older ladies (in their 70s) asked me the same question, eyeing BamBam with fear in their eyes. Seriously... they moved back (they were wearing bathing suits this was right as we came in from the pool) as we approached, as though we were untouchables. Hahaha... it was so weird. Anyway, I had already asked the lifeguard moments before about my member duty and she said indeed, because I have a boy I must go to the family room. No dinkies in the female general. He could be WATCHING THEM!!! And, I can say, that's what those older ladies looked fearful of. The eyes of a three old boy. How fucked up are you about your body that you can't handle the judgement of a three year old boy. Seriously.

Wow. North Americans are so fucked up. Death, violence, gore... but NO BOOBIES OR DINKIES or pretending that I know every man out there has a penis under his clothes and that every woman has boobies and a vagina (barring any mutations of course). That's right, I said it, PENIS! VAGINA!!

Hahaha.... sorry for the rant. It's just been on my mind, as I said. Oh yeah, also, found your leg warmers (in Matthews car of all places) and also whatever that small modular item is that we can't figure out, a clock I think you said?

I look forward to your picture!

why we have seperate men's and women's restrooms. Replace the urinals with stalls, and who cares?

Separate men's and women's rooms are the result by MohammedNiyalSayeed (2.00 / 0) #31 Thu Jan 29, 2009 at 10:29:31 PM EST

of a far-reaching, gender-wide conspiracy to deny that women fart.

Seriously, though, I'm for separate restrooms, having used both whenever I damn well pleased in the past, as I've found women's rooms to be typically much less clean than men's rooms. That wasn't what I expected, but its what I found.

I am, however, for replacing urinals with stalls.

what seriously? by R343L (4.00 / 1) #11 Wed Jan 28, 2009 at 03:18:29 PM EST
I've seen little boys and girls in "women's changing rooms" my whole life. The Y I used to go down here did specify boys above a certain age (I think it was 8 or 10) had to use the men's room  (or the family option), but ... three? wow!

Your little boy should be eyed concernedly because he's surely a troublemaker, not that he's a boy and OMG HE CAN SEE YOUR LADY BITS!

Of course, I say this as someone who has changed her shirt in a room full of all adult (and likely lascivious) men and women.

err, to clarify by R343L (2.00 / 0) #12 Wed Jan 28, 2009 at 03:21:31 PM EST
So I don't sound like a total wuss.

That example at the end is not to say "how cool am I that I'll change my shirt -- my shirt! -- in front of people". It was rather that the circumstances of this particular shirt changing  (which involved hundreds of people almost all strangers) is so extremely more "risky" (and I didn't consider it so) than a three year old boy in a women's changing room. My standards are apparently lower than the seventy year old biddies. Wonder what they would think?

god forbid anyone know what a naked person of the opposite sex looks like! and obviously that makes you a child molester or something because you're not uncomfortable being naked around your toddler....

I guess i just don't get it. when do we learn that shame? little kids don't have it, and adults who are comfortable naked are branded as perverts. then again, anything one does these days gets you branded as a pervert.

Nakedness is SCARY by littlestar (4.00 / 2) #20 Thu Jan 29, 2009 at 02:51:37 AM EST
Yeah, I guess that woman did think I was some kind of weird because I didn't hide my nakedness from my kids. You can see how people get so wonky about sex and having sex. I mean, there are women (and perhaps men I've just never spoken to any) who won't be naked in front of their lover. That is they change in the dark or another room and then sneak into the bedroom. That's messed up. I mean, I do get that we all don't feel out bodies look exactly as we want them too, me neither really, but if you can't let your lover see your body who can you let see it? I guess not a three year old boy.

I do agree that church has some seriously unfavourable influence on this, yet another reason why I feel state and church should be seprated and look forward to the day that that is ACTUALLY the case.

It is so odd to me that twelve year old girls currently dress like prostitutes and that's cool, (where you can see all contours/nipples/camel toe/asses hanging out the bottom of tiny shorts and skirts) but my little naked three old running around the change room shouting "one, two, three BLASt OFF!" (he loves spaceships) is somehow upsetting. Who knew?

Ummm.... When my daughter was a toddler by ObviousTroll (2.00 / 0) #40 Wed Feb 11, 2009 at 08:36:03 AM EST
We were in a large shopping mall, just the two of us, when I had to go. Bad. What our family calls a"30 second warning".

So I dragged her into the men's room, took her into the stall with me and tried to cover myself as I plopped down onto the toilet and again when I was done.

And afterward she said, "Daddy what is that thing?"

"What thing, honey?"

"THIS!" - and she grabbed my crotch.

Never took her into another men's room.

That's why by littlestar (2.00 / 0) #41 Wed Feb 11, 2009 at 10:37:14 AM EST
I think it's better for them to already know what it is so it's not a question, just curiousity at the difference. Popsicle and Bam Bam both know what parts a male and a female have (and learned it young because they saw us naked from babyhood and asked questions when they were old enough to notice and wonder). Not that that means they don't/haven't questioned or grabbed (hee hee... that's just human nature I think) but it's not like it was out of the blue. Anyway, everyone is different but to me because the more you hide something the more interesting it is, I would rather not make what bits we all have a secret (because we know - for sure - ONE day, they will figure it out).

Oh, I know it wasn't a huge deal by ObviousTroll (2.00 / 0) #42 Wed Feb 11, 2009 at 10:45:02 AM EST
but the paranoia over sexual predators these days, can have all sorts of horrible consequences.

I mean, I'm the oldest of six, and you can't have a family without having witnessed toddlers barreling around without their diapers on (or even to have family photos of same) but with the current attitudes? It's frightening.

nakedness in the americas- i see your rant. by misslake (4.00 / 1) #26 Thu Jan 29, 2009 at 08:08:50 AM EST
once upon a time, 256 and i were in mexico.
the beaches of tulum and isla mujeres are all the most beautiful sand, the carribean is turquoise and warm. the barrier reefs break the waves and there is a gentle rolling of the water with the tides.
there were beaches in front of each resort and hotel, and because of mexican law, no one can "own" beach within so many metres of high tide. so all beaches are "public." on the beaches in front of the american resorts (as in USian and canadian) there were signs, "no topless sunbathing!!" the beaches were full of sad chubby people, wearing tankinis AND coverups, sarongs with huge t-shirts, so you couldn't even see thier swimsuits underneath. as if their flesh was NEVER alowed to feel the tropical sunshine or the warm salt water. skin draped and covered. also on those beaches were tiny little women, in string bikinis, with giant orbs bound by triangles covering only thier areolas, and triangles nestled in the cleavage between the rounds of thier bums. the mens were in ridiculous long shorts, longer than burmuda length, with crazy hawaiian prints. i can't imagine how anyone enjoys swimming in knee length baggy shorts. the feel of the whole thing was very very sexual. the shame of the chubby people in thier full coverage outfits, the strings of the tiny bikinis were sex.
on the beaches in front of the european hotels, there were no such signs. most people were in mono-kinis, men and women alike wearing breifs or small shorts. bums fully covered. others were wearing one peice swimsuits. suits that held in breasts and looked like they were designed for swimming in. everyone sunned thier chests, bellies and backs, saggy, pert, round, puckered and dimpled, everyone together. children were running around naked in the sun.
the beaches where there were naked breasts and men in speedo shorts felt non-sexual, it was just flesh and sun and sand. yet, the beaches with the signs trying to prevent the sexual, with breast coverage strictly enforced by hotel management and social mores were very sexual places.
it was a very strange contrast.

256 and i wandered across many beaches in our tank tops and sarongs, and preferred to swim naked in front of the international hippy campground where we pitched our tent. i remember talking about this a lot together, and how weird it all seemed.

[ Parent ]
Excellent example!! by littlestar (4.00 / 1) #28 Thu Jan 29, 2009 at 11:48:48 AM EST
That's exactly what I'm talking about. Rather then just have it be a natural (and great and beautiful part of life) our nakedness becomes something that is ONLY a sexual thing. That's retarded. We are sexual creatures so you can't get away from our need for sex and sexual feelings, but you are only heightening this reaction to nakedness by making it something you ONLY see in those scenarios. I mean, you look at the pretty naked boobies on the beach the same way you look at the pretty boobies on the beach that are covered. And plus it's stupid to pretend that we only naked when we are having sex. We are naked under our clothes everyday!!! Hahaha...

pfc entry

I've been playing around for hours now trying to get a better shot, but my patience is gone. This is probably the best one so far, I've got a couple more attempts on my flickr page if anyone cares.

The shot is a printout of this public domain clip art, under a pane of glass, with a few drops of cooking oil poured on the glass, and some string for a wick.

If you want to make a similar shot I'll save you some time

  • kleenex as a wick burns brightly but crumples very quickly and leaves ashes on the glass.
  • 40% alcohol makes a gorgeous blue flame but is hard to ignite and doesn't last long, it might be feasible if you had an assistant. On the plus side, my basement has a fantastic whisky aroma right now.
  • cooking oil makes ugly streaks, you have to clean the glass between each attempt and be very careful while pouring.
I was worried about shattering the glass but had absolutely no problems, even with cheap thin glass from a $2 picture frame.
