Why Nudist Exclusionary Radical Feminists (NERFs) are harmful to the cause for equality, health and body image

Like sex worker exclusionary radical feminists (SWERFs) and transgender exclusionary radical feminists (TERFs), nudist exclusionary radical feminists (NERFs) are extremely harmful to the human rights cause in a lot more ways than one.

On Friday morning, I was commenting on a story on CBS San Francisco about Gypsy Taub’s plan to walk naked to a religious shrine in San Francisco – and even told a truth that many religious extremists today didn’t want to come out in broad daylight (post about why she is right forthcoming on Friday).

One thread starter trolled the whole thing by saying that Mrs. Taub had “too much time on her hands”.  I decided to bark back, rightfully saying that Mrs. Taub is picking up right where civil rights activists like Martin Luther King Junior, Sarah Weddington (one of the Roe Rangers), Harvey Milk, Mistress Matisse, and Laverne Cox left off.

One woman then made this idiotic response to my post, saying that because no nudist died, public nudity is not a civil rights issue:

I easily rebuffed that argument, and correctly noted in other comments to the piece (click here) that the denial of the right to be nude in public constitutes to sexual discrimination against men in 47 of the 50 states, and is also a violation of the Equal Rights Amendment in 36 states, including California, where the story in question takes place.

Nudity bans alone prove a lot of truths (five of which will be listed, starting with the next sentence) that are being blatantly censored in the USA. One, contrary to popular belief – not all people are created equal.  Two, only New Yorkers and Maineans are really free.  Three, we as Americans are being brainwashed by the mainstream media and politicians that nudity is harmful when in fact, not a single human being on Earth age 0 to 124 has ever been harmed by merely seeing a naked person.  Four, we are also being brainwashed into believing that clothes are natural and moral, when in fact clothing is immoral and unnatural and contributes to a violation of the Ten Commandments and is also one of the deadly sins.  And five, there are nudist exclusionary radical feminists – and they are even more harmful that the evil SWERFs and TERFs, both of which everyone in the movement has heard of.

And the previous sentence is the focus of this post.

Just like sex worker exclusionary radical feminists hold the belief that sex workers impede women’s rights and that they should be condemned, and just like transgender exclusionary radical feminists hold the belief that transgender and gender non-conforming people impede women’s rights and that they should be condemned, nudist exclusionary radical feminists, or NERFs for short, hold the belief that nudists and naturists impede women’s rights and that they should be condemned.  The screenshot of the comment in reply to me on Friday is a perfect example of what a NERF is.

It is a possibility that most of “feminist” movement are in fact NERFs, however, the percentage of NERFs are unknown at this time.  NERFs are actively opposed to legalizing public nudity, a move that would put everyone on equal footing as opposed to a certain group of people to have more rights than others (as is the case in 47 states).  In fact, some would dare say that NERFs are also “prudes”.

The agenda of the NERFs are severely damaging and can actually be fatal if we do not confront them.

Because nudity is banned in 47 states, most Americans are not getting the essential health benefits they need.  As I mentioned before, public nudity has health benefits that last a lifetime, much longer than the five years of benefits that breastfeeding holds.  Public nudity promotes a healthy self-image, as well as a healthy body image.  The reason why other nations have more world’s oldest people than the US does is because they allow nudity, most of America does not.  Nudity bans rob years from the lives of Americans.  Bans on public nudity is literally a death sentence for men and people of color, and that is the #1 reason why women outlive men and why whites outlive minorities.

Because nudity is banned in 47 states, body image events outside of New York City and Bangor, Maine are 100% meaningless.  Sorry, Terri O’Neill.  The National Organization for Women’s Love Your Body Day event isn’t promoting a healthy body image outside of states of Maine and New York, as event attendees are forbidden – unconstitutionally I wanna add – from being in their natural state during the annual fall event.  We can’t promote a healthy body image unless we address the big unconstitutional elephant in the room: bans on public nudity.

Children who see naked people are not harmed by the sight at all.  In fact, children who see naked people grow up loving themselves, rather than being suicidal, as this study that the media and claptrap right wingnuts tried to censor.

Some of the facts this study, by Paul Okami, et. al. in 1998, use in destroying inane arguments against allowing public nudity include:

Given the vehemence with which clinicians and child-rearing specialists often condemn childhood exposure to parental nudity, it is paradoxical that their dire predictions are not supported by the (scant) empirical work that does exist. Findings are at worst neutral or ambiguous as to interpretation, and there is even the implication of possible positive benefits in these studies (particularly for boys) in domains such as self-reported comfort with physical affection (Lewis and Janda, 1988) and positive “body self-concept” (Story, 1979). Although these investigations are methodologically limited, their results are consistent with the view of a smaller group of child-rearing specialists and other commentators who have stressed the potential benefits to children of exposure to nudity in the home, in areas such as later sexual functioning, and capacity for affection and intimacy (cf. Finch, 1982; Goodson, 1991; Martinson, 1977; Mead, cited in Goodson, 1991). Although some of these writers (cf. Ellis, cited in Goodson, 1991) make reference to the cross-cultural ubiquity of childhood exposure to parental nudity – although objecting to alarmist positions taken by Western commentators who fail to provide supportive data – the cross-cultural record is not generally explicit on the question of actual exposure of children to parental nudity. It does, however, present a strong case for the universality of parent-child cosleeping or room sharing (e.g., Barry and Paxton, 1971; Caudill and Plath, 1966; Gardner, 1975; Lozoff et al., 1998; Morelli et al., 1992; Stephens, 1972; Whiting, 1964; Whiting and Edwards, 1988). It may tentatively be inferred that under such conditions large numbers of the world’s population of children are exposed to parental nudity. Finally, a third group of writers stress the importance of the context in which childhood exposure to nudity takes place, insisting that outcomes are mediated by such contextual variables as gender, age of child, family climate, cultural beliefs, and so on (Okami, 1995; Okami et al., 1997).

The Okami study was also cited in a post about children and nudity from 2004.

What Casler wrote about childhood experience with naturism in 1964 applies just as well to children a mere forty years later. There is nothing harmful with either being human or appearing fully human. Children’s welfare must be safeguarded, but so too must they be given the chance to learn to respect their own bodies and those of others. There is no evidence that children are harmed by nonsexualized social nudity, and there is good reason to believe they are benefited by it. Proposals for laws banning to children the innocent experience of being human, appearing human, and seeing others as such are unwarranted, unfounded, and have no scholarly basis.

The results of the study were clear: “Consistent with the cross-sectional retrospective literature (and with our expectations), no harmful main effects of these experiences were found at age 17-18” (376). Okami continued: “Exposure to parental nudity was associated with positive, rather than negative, sexual experiences in adolescence, but with reduced sexual experience overall. Boys exposed to parental nudity were less likely to have engaged in theft in adolescence or to have used various psychedelic drugs and marijuana. […] Thus, results of this study add weight to the views of those who have opposed alarmist characterizations of childhood exposure […] to nudity” (377).

These pieces lay bare the outrageous and blatantly false claims that children are harmed by nudity.  They also eliminate the excuses prudes like those commenting on Savannah media pages on Facebook for why nudity should not be allowed in public.  Summarily, the same pieces also expose the silent, but deadly agenda of the NERFs and others like them, who have long infiltrated the feminist movement with their bigoted and discriminatory beliefs against nudists and naturists.

I was intersectional before intersectionality became cool.  The same thing that people have said in response to SWERFs and TERFs can be said in response to NERFs: my feminism will be intersectional, or it will be bullshit.

Intersectionality is recognizing that sex workers, transgender people and nudists are real human beings and working to advance their rights as well.

Quartet of female sex workers drug men unconscious with Molly, sexually assault and rob them

Marci Rosen is one of four women who drugged men with Molly and then robbed them while they were unconscious.

* Trigger Warning *

NEW YORK CITY — A really disturbing story of sexual violence against men from the New York Area that has netted the arrest of four women for the incident, and a man for witnessing the women committing sexual violence against men and doing nothing about it.

The victims were all rich men, and their identities will be withheld.

An eight month investigation found that Samantha Barbash, 40, Roselyn Keo, 29, Marsi Rosen, 28, and Karina Pascucci, 26, had been drugging men at two city strip clubs — Scores in Manhattan and Roadhouse NYC in Queens.

The quartet of sex workers scoped the area to find victims.  One or more of the women would text the victims to meet with them.

The women would then spike the victims’ drinks with Molly, a date rape drug that Rick Ross rapped about in his pro-rape anthem, U.O.E.N.O.

The robbers would then take their victims to an undisclosed location, arrange for a private room and give the victims’ credit/debit cards a ride.

The victims wouldn’t remember anything at all — they’d wake up in cars, hotel rooms or even their own beds with no recollection of what had happened, and were shocked when they found out about the card charges.  When they challenged the charges, the male victims were sent threatening text messages, and incriminating pictures that had been taken when they were drugged up, sexually assaulted and robbed.

One doctor was hit with a $136,000.00 charge on his credit card after four trips to Scores in November 2013.

Scores hit the victim with a lawsuit, claiming that the 41-year-old victim was “partying with five girls at once”.

The doctor’s lawyer, Michael Weinstein, said, “We were always confident that law enforcement’s efforts would expose that my client was preyed upon by this ring and not responsible for charges to his credit card.”

And sure enough, they were proven correct.

Special Narcotics prosecutor Bridget Brennan said of the female predators, “The defendants were banking on the victims being too afraid to contact the police, but as the indictment and arrests show, they made a serious miscalculation.”

Ms. Barbash, who went by the nickname “Samantha Foxx”, was the ringleader of the all-female sexual predator ring.

The indictment, which was unsealed Tuesday, says the all-female crew ran its sexual assault and robbery combo scheme between September and December of 2013, but investigators believe “one or more” members of the predatory group may have engaged in similar schemes as far back as January 2011.

One of the victims did an exclusive interview with the New York Daily News about the incident.

The married father said he believes he was drugged and robbed by the women when he went to the Penthouse Executive Club in Hell’s Kitchen last year — a night that ended with his credit card loaded with over $40000.00 worth of charges.

“I’ve been to strip clubs all around the world.  I party a lot.  I’m not a stupid guy — there’s no way in God’s green earth I would spend $40000.00 in one day,” he said, surmising that he must have been “slipped” something because he remembers feeling really “weird.”

“It was like I was punch drunk.  I felt like I was floating,” he said. “It wasn’t a drunk feeling – just like a dream.  It’s just a blur.”

That victim decided to speak with the Daily News on Wednesday, a day after the all-female sexual assault/robbery ring was busted up by the New York Police Department.

Some of female defendants even tried drugging, sexually assaulting and robbing a DEA agent posing as a rich man.

The victim said that he even fell prey to the same sexual assault/robbery scheme in March 2013, more than six months before the timeline of the incident above.

He said that he took three associates to Penthouse that month.

According to media reports, Penthouse is owned by the very same people who own Scores.

He said he and his pals had a couple of drinks, but he decided to stay for one more when they were packing up.

He said he ended up in a private room with two women — and was apparently there for hours.

The victim, who’s in his 40s, said he remembers feeling “not in control,” and signing several pieces of paper.  He also remembered being half naked himself at one point, and said that when he left, he, the women and a manager appeared to be the only people left in what had been a busy club.

His stepmother then found out that he was sexually assaulted and robbed by the women.  He was out nearly $7,000.00 that night.

Both the stepmother, his bookkeeper, and his wife were understanding — but he said the club wasn’t.  He said when he challenged the charges through a middleman, he was told the club would go to the newspapers if he didn’t pay up.

He was also contacted by one of the female predators, who got his mobile number.

“She said, ‘Baby, you just had a good time that night.  You don’t remember.’  That’s when I realized I’d been scammed,” he said.

She told him if he didn’t pay, she’d lose her share of the cash.  “Come on, you can afford this,” she told him.

“I haven’t gone to a strip club since,” he said, adding he didn’t recognize any of the women who were arrested this week. A rep for Penthouse did not return a call for comment.

The male manager of Roadhouse was also arrested.  Agents said that the manager knew that the women were drugging, sexually assaulting and robbing men and he did nothing to stop it, propelling law enforcers to hit him with conspiracy charges.

The spokeswoman for the DEA, Erin Mulvey, said the investigation is continuing, and investigators believe there are other victims (all male) – and possibly more female suspects – of the all-female predator ring.

THIS is why I want people to talk to their daughters and mothers.  It is time to remind women that men don’t owe them a nickel of money for their time spent with the women – not even on a first date.

Disgusting story of female sexual entitlement and female monetary entitlement run amok, indeed.  These women and other women like them who feel the need to rob men because the men refuse to consent to putting out their cash need to go to jail for a long time.

Taking a man’s money without his consent is robbery.  Way past time for women to learn this.
