So what’s the difference? I just had an intelligent conversation with a friend of mine about this and yes, we did share different views on this subject, but you know what? Really, after a long conversation with my friend Yvonne, it all came down to this…
In the Nudist/Naturist community there is no difference between the two because they mean the exact same thing. however, the main hiccup in society with textiles is they really get them two confused. Sure, you can google search the two and find very different results but this is why I’m sitting here writing this and you’re reading this. Textiles tend to use the term Nudist and others Naturist — but is there really a difference between the two terms? Nope! They actually mean the same thing and even people who are jaded know this yet prefer the term Naturist when people ask if they are a nudist.
Call yourself anything you want. Naturist, Nudist … it all comes down to the same thing. Whether you call yourself a Nudist or a Naturist we are all simply comfortable in our own skin and happy and naked. I know a friend of mind who was blocked by Naturist UK over a tedious poll. the voting choices were simply as follows:
And guess what happen when she replied, “What’s the difference, as long as everyone is naked and happy” She was blocked by Naturist UK for a simple comment as such and to me in my mind that was uncalled for, for Naturist UK to block over a common comment most Naturists make all the time. to be happy and naked isn’t a term that is negative.
What Naturist UK does not realize is the one they blocked someone over this normal comment. They are a Naturist community here in Canada and are well-known to us and the area of Ontario and Quebec. A new Campgrounds but a really respected campgrounds in my opinion. I just wish the Federation of Canadian Naturists would recognize them and help them out as much as they did and always have with Bare Oaks Naturist Park.
I think it’s time to think out of the box and not just focus on one resort/campgrounds and help new communities like Freedom Fields Naturist Ranch and other communities out west as well. I know someone out west by the ails of Rusty who resides in the BC and have been forever asking the FCN to help out west and they will not seem to lift a finger for our western Nudists. I think we should do like AANR and have an east and west FCN to better help and support resorts/campgrounds ect. Quebec was fortunate to have the Federation of Quebec Naturists (FQN) to help out Quebec. However I feel its time to have a FCN-East and FCN-West
I’m sorry that this ended up to be two blog in one but I felt it was necessary to mention this all in one blog for a friend of mine.
