Buddy wants to be able to be naked all the time. I really don't have too big a problem with this when it's just walking down the street. I do get a little creeped out at thought of sitting on a coffee shop seat that has just been grazed by a stranger's testicles though. Okay, more than a little.

Well, I personally do not find male sexual organs all that attractive, so I don't want to see them hanging out all over the place. Plus, if we give one person the right to be naked, we have to deal with all the people with gross bodies running around naked! Ick! Okay, I'm being kind of mean.
Although it makes me uncomfortable, I could accept nude beaches, parks, etc. But, I think it is totally inappropriate in a place where food is served or sold. It is a hygiene issue. What if the nudie person in front of you in line at Tim's had pubic lice or something. Shudder!
Anyways, I think until society can accept breastfeeding in public, we are a long way from being able to accept people walking around naked!

I've got no problem with drive thru nudity. Having pants on doesn't mean he wasn't touching his junk two seconds ago anyways.

Yeah, I guess in the drive-through would be different, as you are not potentially coming into contact with any food but your own. If I was working the drive through though, I might be putting on gloves to hand you your food!

Oh for the record he was in the drive through not the actual store, his parts remained seated in his vehicle and only staff saw any bits etc. There was no hygiene issue to speak of on this one!!
Does naked in the drive through make it any different? Your car your space?

Good point w/ the food selling places/restaurants. It's the rule to have shoes and shirts when you go out to eat, so.... nudity should be an obvious no no....

DUDE! His ASS will be on seats, what if he has clingons? I sure would hate to see him wrestling off a dog that wants a sniff.

Becky you made the point I was going to. Interesting when there's a 'breastfeeding in public' article journos bring in armies of people saying 'we don't want to see THAT in public'; whereas this guy is seen as quirky.

Personally I don't have a problem with it. I'm often nude at home in summer, not sure if I'd want to go down the shops though, I sunburn too easily!

LOLOLOL
Bracebridge is my town, 20 minutes down the highway I get my Timmy's at the same one all the time.
LOL
I know this guy too, not personally but he is a BIG shit disturber up here. He bought a BIG piece of water front and opened a clothing optional resort etc. etc. it goes back years and years...
Anyway, back to the topic, lol Bracebridge made the news... sorry back to the topic at hand..
I have no problem with nudity in general, but not in Tim Horton's or anywhere else they serve food. Or really any establishment. I don't want to grocery shop while Bob picks a bunch of bananas with his banana hanging out.
But I think nudity in general, at parks, beaches etc. shouldn't be a problem, although hygiene wise I wouldn't want to sit on a park bench previously occupied by a naked ass.
But there are solutions to those issues...
I love being nekked...
Was nekked a lot outside this weekend in my back yard.

Yeah, feces are everywhere. I'm totally on board with that because there's no denying it. Still...this is like known direct contact. It's ummm...over the top to me.

Could you imagine having to put sunscreen on your nether regions? Ahahaha. Thanks for the visual. :)

I don't want to see that. Tell him to stay home and be naked. I like people much better when they have some clothes on. ;)

Yah ... well, door knobs are gross too. I mean, there was this thing on 20/20 once about 'germs'. They tested seats at the movie house, on the bus, door knobs .... it was AMAZING what humans leave behind on surfaces such as that .... better really to not think about it ...



I don't have an issue with naked ... if God had wanted us to run around naked we would have been born that way, right? :)



Fighting for this as a 'right' is not high on my tado list, but it seems an issue worth Buddy's time. I don't believe I will ever jump on this as a good idea for me personally ....



Sun Screen ... lots of it ....
