Nude, we resemble one another...
I'd like to say this video is interesting; but it's simply lively. As for getting naked behind an improvised shower curtain, it doesn't work, especially for those of us who've been pleasantly naked outside in downtown Toronto without such a prop.As for the pixellation, it contradicts the message and comes across as both condescendingly paternalistic and distractingly stupid.
Paul, without the pixellation, the video would never be allowed on YouTube. The Naturist Society has six naturist interviews currently on YouTube, showing people only from the neck up. Is that any less "condescendingly paternalistic and distractingly stupid?" I think the Citizen Janes video is entertaining, and while far from ideal for nudism and naturism, it's a step in the right direction.
Pixellation may serve the purpose you mentioned and still come across as what I said. Moreover, despite similarities, there's a notable difference conceptually, visually, and semantically between pixellation from the CBC and what TNS did in its videos.Although neither is ideal, TNS's way is better. Those are, after all, only talking-head interviews. (They could have been created as audio only with almost no loss.)
The TNS videos are better in the sense that they are truer to naturist ideals, but the Citizen Janes video is way more entertaining and effective. TNS should track down this Kaitlin woman and enlist her to interview real naturists.
There's no question that the Citizen Janes piece is more entertaining and needs a followup or dozens!
It seems that YouTube does not have the severest attitude against nudity. Nudity exists on it; and its expressed policy, while unacceptable, is far from the inane immaturity of Facebook's, for example.
Very nice Jane. Bravo
