word. Having tried to look at Gab a few times, for reasons, I find Raddle is certainly also a more functional website from a technical perspective by a long shot.

it just works.

hopefully this doesn't come off as rude, but "right-leaning independent" is not how I would expect a user of raddle.me to describe themselves. how'd you get here?

I too want to use this site more.

How rad are the people you live with? e.g. not just roommates, but neighbours, people you share your life with, etc.

"I think it's the conflation of being naked with sex that sours the average person on the whole nudist thing. Though, that day with the friends only worked because we've all already seen each other naked ... under different, sexier, circumstances. Maybe that's the problem? The inability to divorce nakedness from sex, with the latter being neccesarily tied to the former due to 'logistics.'"

Yeah. I've written a bit about this too. The short of it is that sexuality, as a subject matter, encompasses nudity as a subject matter. And sexuality is like, a hard problem in many aspects.

I plan to do a post about climate change, lol

that sounds cool, and maybe more suited to, like, what seems to be a lot of naturists on the internet? not me, as much, cuz... I don't know, I'm not AGAINST photos per se, but I've made a whole thing of being critical of representation and uninterested in passive consumption of images of naked people, probably in middle-class homes or on beautiful sandy beaches somewhere

but, lol, if someone set that stuff up, who's to say I wouldn't make an account to finally share a few photos of myself, for select followers I'd show my face to, in which I think I look handsome and/or cute? and given I'm sort of into Reddit, I imagine the forum thing would be cool too

I'd definitely characterize him as right-wing!

I wouldn't say categorically that naturism IS what you're saying, but certainly I think naturism, as a tradition that started among white Europeans circa 1900 and, like, occasionally rubbed shoulders with some nastier ideologies and certainly often took a turn away from, like, better ideologies (e.g. anarchism, critiques of ideology as such notwithstanding), is uh, bad, and most of the adherents have a lot of stuff they haven't examined yet or actively wouldn't want to examine

really feel you on the parenthetical "purely abstract invididualism" comment, too. like, how am I supposed to relate to some weird verbiage about someday moving to Florida or whatever. it's an option for some, but not for me, and not for lots of people. and like, to the extent that I COULD maybe do it, I can't relate to nudism being, like... the whole of what I would ever plan my life around
