Media’s Grim Addiction to Perseverance Porn | FAIR

LABSN Editor’s Note: I thought this take on how a news item is reported was very important. FAIR has a reputation for making news reporters think about what they write from a different point of view.

Why I Choose To Live Naked. | elephant journal

LABSN Editor’s Note: I like how Mr. Mathis Kennington relates that being physically naked can bring out our emotional nakedness, which is a good thing.

That one-finger selfie

LABSN Editor’s Note: Paul makes some excellent points with this post on his Zjuzdme.org blog. What do you think? 

One-finger selfies. You’ve probably heard about it, seen plenty of examples of it. The one-finger selfie. Apparently it started though an Anime character that demonstrated how to do it: I had…

A practical idea

LABSN Editor’s Note: Ran across Nikola Novak’s Naked Diaries blog and found this post interesting. Nikola makes a good argument for practicality.

The situation is somewhere between symbolism and analogy, really. The clothes make me feel trapped when I wear them. Now I’m trapped in this place because of them.
