Male Fail

So my Vimeo account got taken down. Again. And all I had up there was the comic book, my Buster Nutt firework commercial and my book review of Waste. I just don’t know anymore.

I’m convinced that if I were female this would not be happening. I’m not playing for a sympathy card here as I know females get it worse more often, but it is frustrating, especially from groups supposedly inclusive:

Also, I’ve been looking into some nude hot springs or naturist retreats to visit on my upcoming Pikes Peak runcation. Single female? Cool! $20 day pass. Single male? Well, that’ll be $80. If there even is entry allowed for a single male without a current member vouching for me.

So I protested the take-down but highly doubt anything will come of it. Also pretty much gave up on a nice hot springs dip. Part of the issue is COVID-19 limits but it’s still a bummer.

    Iโ€™ve notes the same; different rules for males, as well as for singles. Many places require you stay as a couple.

    Maaaybe you need a traveling companion?! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I suspect you are correct about the female vs male nudity acceptance level online and elsewhere as well. Itโ€™s frustrating. Itโ€™s sad too; sad that men are all seen as dangerous in some way. When you pull all the layers away you find fear to be the motivation behind such rules. A naked man is seen as a sex-crazed creep … itโ€™s so wrong! The double-standard is very real.

    sORRY MY FRIEND, BUT THAT IS LIFE AS WE KNOW IT. As yoi know, the naturist group I belong to,is pretty much 80-90 percent men. The group has tried all kinds of approaches to get women to join, with little success. I agree with you that charging men more than women is blatantly wrong. But sometimes the hope is that will encourage more women to join. If i can recover it, I will send you an article that may help you understand. Hope you get back on Vimeo.

      Yeah I get memberships, but the hot springs is frustrating as it’s not a membership thing. I did go to a hot springs last year that was nude though single gender rooms only. That’s fine but the water in there was far too hot to soak. Looks like a suit soak is the only good option. Oh well, I’ll take a hot springs soak nude or not.

    Ugh not fair. I enjoy male nudity as much as female, so that sounds like a bunch of wrinkly balls to me. And it seems that in the era of neo-feminism and all of that super fun stuff, males always get the shaft. I’m not bashing feminism, but it is problematic in these times. I’m increasingly skeptical of modern feminism because of the sense of entitlement and inequality. It’s hypocritical.

    A naked man is a naked man… a man in touch with his body and his sexuality. I think that’s a beautiful thing. But society is backwards and all twisted up when it comes to nudity and sexuality. Sorry for the nudity problems. But you will always have an accepting audience here. ๐Ÿ’‹๐Ÿ’‹๐Ÿ’‹
