I am a nudist from Canada and wonder how nudity is accepted or not in Belize. Women can legally go topless here but I under in Scandanavian countries, nudism is fine in many areas.

Nudism is not accepted. Belizean people are quite religeous, family orientated. Women are not legally allowed to go topless, nor is nudity legal, in my part of Canada.

Yeah Steaker, Belize is not the place for that. I think it would be nice and maybe on a secluded caye by yourself, but you might as well just forget about it in Belize. Maybe you should try one of the French owned islands or something like that.

Thanks for responding so fast.

Cinca, Women can go topless not nude anywhere in public places outside in Canada, according to my information. I get the feeling, correct me if I am wrong, that you personally find nudism disgusting by your negative connotations. You said that Belize is a family oriented place and that exactly what nudism is all about. Nudism is healthy, and normal (just not accepted by mainstream society in Canada just now). There is nothing sexual about nudism and nudist families tend to be very healthy pychologically and the kids more mature for their age and have a better self esteem and body image. If my assumption is correct, you might want to study nudism and find out that it is a healthy more open, liberating lifestyle, not what you think it is.

Unless you are a VERY young child, clothing is NOT optional by law and by custom.

Go back to your law books. Nudity is still very illegal on the West Coast!

we were all born naked

only certain garments of clothing
are necessary
such as shoes
and things
to keep a person warm

how has it come about
that people
have become so detached
from something so natural
as our bodies

i prefer to wear clothing
and im sure
that has a lot to do
with how i was brought up
but i find nothing immoral
or threatening against family
or religious lifestyles
by being naked

It has been my "observation" that most people who go around nude in public, really should not. Has nothing to do with morality, just esthetics. HA!!

no hugh

actually it has to do with
opinion
it may be your opinion
that some people
shouldnt be nude
but
its not what you think
that matters
its up to them
to do what they feel
just like
you dont have to watch a certain program
on television
if you dont like it......
you dont have to look
at any person
if you so wish

and much respect
to the people
that dont let other peoples opinions
of them
run their lives
