How do you feel about yourself naked?

on September 29, 2018 in Choosing/Decision-Making, Fitness, Nature, Nonjudgment

You’re naked every day. You’re naked under your clothes. How do you feel about yourself naked? Do you love your body? I mean love how it looks, works, and feels? I’m not talking vanity, envy, or pride. I’m not talking about conforming to others’ values or imposing yours on others. Look at your body in a full-length mirror. Feel it. Hear it. Smell it. Alone with yourself. Just you. Nobody[…] Keep reading →

Help me expand

on September 23, 2018 in Blog, Choosing/Decision-Making

You responded with overwhelming support to my last two posts Should I raise funds and market more? Should I write on more controversial issues? I value more views.

Planes How about having every airplane ticket show how much pollution and greenhouse gas emissions each flight causes—designed, prominent, and easy to read, like an Energy Star label or cigarette warning? I’d add a relevant comparison number, like IPCC recommendations. Like this, from MyClimate.org, Cars How about gas pumps show that information as you fill[…] Keep reading →

The United States today probably has the largest population in history of men with breasts caused by voluntary choices. There are other causes than voluntary choices as this Newsweek article says, It can sometimes be hereditary but is more commonly spurred by conditions like obesity, chronic kidney disease or an overactive thyroid, as well as by certain medications like steroids that cause hormone levels to shift. but many men choose[…] Keep reading →
