Bare Activist – In the last two years, Brian Coldin of Ontario, Canada, was charged on 5 different occurrences in which he was unclothed or partially bare in public. The most celebrated event occurred at a fast-food drive-thru when Brian and two other men drove up naked to the window. Then, to the female workers’ shock and dismay, they feigned to hunt due to their wallets.
The judge ruled the incidents conveyed no essential significance or beliefs beyond Coldin’s simple want to be nude in public.
Unclothed Activist – John Cropper Nude Free Hiking
John Cropper was one of the two guys facing charges for the drive thru stunt. After reading a few posts, I was under the impression that John had been in the auto, but was acquitted because he “may have been” sporting a thong. This past Sunday I interviewed John to get the story first-hand, and was notified that he wasn’t even present at the time the incident occurred. Hello everyone, my name is Adele and I would like to say several words about my nudist family went to the restaurant on a different, clothed occasion with Brian, and was erroneously identified by the workers as one of the wrongdoers. (Maybe because he was dressed?)
Naked Activist – John Cropper Wandering Down the Road in the Snow
John, a volunteer on the board of the Federation of Canadian Naturists, has been a naturist for ten years along with an activist and free hiker. He fervently described the greater happiness and independence he experienced from free hiking and being nude outside.
In a form of civil disobedience, John started trekking the secluded trails in the nude and one day was seen by two police officers, who mentioned him for an indecent action. On the other hand, the judge decided that John’s easy free hiking was not causing anyone harm and dismissed the case.
Presently, John is working with the local superintendent to officially designate a clothing-optional section at Wasaga Beach. It already exists unofficially, but with the minimal price of putting up signs, it can readily become Canada’s third official, clothing optional beach.
He says there’s “no resistance so farPeople are considerably more tolerant of nudity now.”
Presented in this article are two recent cases of public nudity charges brought to trial, both as forms of activism. Nonetheless, there is a distinction worth making: passive resistance vs. active opposition. In Brian’s case, the judge had not been so concerned with whether Brian was entirely bare or not, but more so with Brian’s competitive behavior and aim to disturb and shock others.
Both John and the FCN seemed to concur that Brian crossed the line in his nude “protest.” Such kinds of active resistance may function well for other causes, but as far as naturism is concerned, aggressively forcing one’s belief that nudity should be allowed everywhere isn’t a behavioral model for naturists. In the event of passive resistance, John chose to gently trek out of a simple want to appreciate the nature and sun.
He gained the right to free hike without being labeled “indecent,” a triumph of legitimacy for all naturists and naturists. Though it can be complicated to decide when to push bounds or even break laws, it really is apparent which form and style of resistance has gained naturism the most. One cannot haphazardly force their beliefs on others and expect it to result in positive change. All acts of opposition or protest change how naturism is perceived and what laws should be in place.
