The younger generation think they are shocking me by saying that they are gay or bi or walk around their house naked.
Seriously I am Flower Power Generation
My Wiccan tradition works skyclad (naked):
When I used to go to our local nudist beach: people would be both disgusted and horrified.
I would say “Yes! If God wanted us to be naked we would have been born that way.”
On each occasion I was just given a blank look:
Seriously, who wasn’t born naked ?
I have not been to this beach in a long time:
In the days that I went there everyone was friendly, like people in a country town, but apparently, and sadly, these days, it has a few creeps with binoculars sitting on the cliffs.
I was in “Women’s Liberation”
Women had no rights and no status and the majority of women believed this was how it should be.
We couldn’t buy a house and landlords would not rent to separated women:
I Googled this — “Women also faced financial discrimination and were seen as a high-risk investment by banks as little as just 50 years ago. It wasn’t until 1975 that women could open a bank account in their own name.”
A woman was expected to stay a virgin until she was married:
A man was expected to be promiscuous:
Never understood how that worked:
In the 1950s gay men were put into a mental institution (in South Australia — think it was prison in other countries)
AND THEN CAME THE SEXUAL REVOLUTION.
Thanks to us — the Flower Power generation 😀
Gays could stop pretending that they were heterosexual.
