Not to denigrate your query, but I must point out the obvious…Have your ever noticed that the vast majority of individuals who identify as “nudists” sport the most out-of-shape and unappealing (“normal”?) physiques?..
Clearly “looking good naked” is not a priority to them, yet they are never publicly critisized as viciously as bodybuilders/weight trainers…[/quote]
I do notice this phenomenon, but I admit that I have no idea why this happens in the first place.
Where I definitely see lots of room for improvement, I’m still comfortable in my own skin, so I’m comfortable seeing myself in the mirror and in the nude.
I really have no idea why body builders or weight trainers get the flak they do for their physiques.
My only guess is that the flak they’re getting is mostly stemming from a really really bad case of jealousy.
People are jealous that BBs and WTs are able to attain a better shape and form than themselves and of course, pick on them.
To those people I say “Eff off!” ;D
Who are they to criticize anyway?
But people still pick on the nudists or the people who are comfortable baring their skin casually because they’re jealous that these people - ripped or not (and oftentimes, not, like you said) - can be so comfortable with themselves when they themselves can’t be.
