Facebook should actually just give up the outrageous censorship and make free speech the default. I see an open, collective space as one in which we all get to exchange ideas and content without being at the mercy of one offended user or a corporation’s idea of what they may deem obscene.

The good news (sort of) is that we users do matter, and we can hold them accountable. Why? 1. Because without us, the users, there is no Facebook. And 2. Because Facebook isn’t just free.
We have also “paid” through illegal use of our private info and probably will again in the foreseeable future.
What exactly can we do about it? Make our voices heard, both on and off Facebook. Submit forbidden content to STGMB, where we can all mock and call out Facebook for removing the most innocuous Internet content. I think we should keep submitting complaints to FB toocan’t guarantee that any individuals read them, but if enough of us keep at it then perhaps our collective voice will, at some point, get heard. But we can not do this alone!
It might also be worth noting that Facebook doesn’t permit users to encourage others to violate its policies. So you should give it some consideration before you go attempting to enact a Day of Naked. Possibly Facebook is not the best place for efforts against Facebook
There have been many petitions and campaigns against hate speech that succeeded in getting FB to revise its policies. So possibly a free speech request is another substitute for consider.
There are a couple of alternative social networks specifically for naturists, though none match the quality and breadth of Facebook. We actually desire a better option for everyone, but til then, looks like we’re stuck dealing with fascistbook.
What would you think, readers? Or have some of you already given up and transferred to Twitter or Tumblr?

(Guest Blog by Naked Yoga Educator Isis Phoenix)

I towel dried my hair and sans clothes, I padded barefoot to my living-room and rolled out my yoga mat. I wanted to get a practice in before teaching yoga at night. For some reason on this special day I didn’t bother to put on the normal stretchy slacks and fitted top that accompanied my yoga practice. I elected for the vogue of ‘au naturel’ instead of streamlining spandex. It was a whim.
I wasn’t what one would consider a naturist. I didn’t have to be naked in my dwelling, nor was I one to seek out clothes-optional events. I had never been to a nude beach. For some reason on that day, however, I decided to practice yoga without clothes.
I was alone in my New York apartment. It was the middle of http://x-nudists.com/index.php/2016/09/03/most-were-not-naturists-and-were-very-nervous-at-first/ . I sat, shut my eyes, and stilled my thoughts.
The impulse for movement appeared that direct me into an easy cat-and-cow movement on my hands and knees – arching and flexing my back with each inhale and exhale – eyes closed. I stretched my way back into downward-facing dog. I was nude. My breasts hung like the udders of a cow in this pose and my abdomen sagged. So that is why we wear spandex, I believed. brazilian family nudes respired.
I started a simple sun salute, moving through the familiar poses on my mat. Let me clarify. I had been practicing regularly for 3 years and had recently completed my yoga teacher training.
To say this happenstance encounter, naked in my living room was the very first time I experienced yoga was ludicrous in my experience. However, the minute it happened I understood. Anything I thought was yoga before was now off the table. It was a moment that I can only describe as that of an extremely complex lock that had been stuck for many years lining up and suddenly breaking open to reveal a secret portal to oneness.
Before that moment I will say my yoga practice was consistent but somewhat superficial. I had tangible aims – more headstands, mastering complicated sequences, a practice of vegetarianism, attending classes three times per week, learning Sanskrit. In this moment, however, the doors swung open and everything that was fragmenting my practice was shown.
