Reasons for this Blog Article Why would I even be interested in responding to the issue of naked swimming in the schools in the old days with a blog article? First, here was a practice most men experienced as recently as fifty years ago, and is a living memory for many of us, and people don’t know about it.
Some even deny it happened because it doesn’t fit our current cultural mores.
I don’t know what the rationale was for such a practice.”I didn’t press the issue, although I thought as a retired teacher he probably should have found out what the rationale was for the practice of nude swimming if he was going to comment on it.But many remain dissatisfied with their bodies because the results are never quite as perfect as they desired. 8A fifth reason for writing this article is that religions have played a role in inculcating negative attitudes toward the body, for example, by their emphasis on modesty in dress.Whether intended or not, people picked up from this the idea that there’s something not quite good about the human body.Even when I was a youth there were muscle magazines encouraging boys to bulk up so they wouldn’t be the skinny kid having sand kicked in his face on the beach—in front of his girl friend, who then walks off with the muscle guy!Today youth use steroids and consume protein shakes to bulk up in order to compare more favorably with ideal models.
