Do we Need Nudist Naturist Labels? Or Can We Just Hang out Nude?

Can We merely Hang out in the Nude?
Hang out Naked: Growing up, I never once called myself a naturist It was constantly nudist. I started using this label once we began FKK, and I Had actually really like it if this turned into the mainstream term for what we appreciate.
As FKK, we consider these terms (usually) synonymous, but some have their own idea about what each one means or what kind of connotation they will have. I have heard some say that naturists are more politically active in naturism / nudism beyond merely frequenting nudist places. I have also heard that in England they use the term ‘naturist’ to describe someone who takes it more seriously as a lifestyle and goes bare every day, on a regular basis.
Some say the word ‘nudist’ has negative connotations from the past, and today it should be “naturist”! It’s not uncommon for the media to misuse the term, associating it with indecent exposure or improper sexual conduct. It’s also to see that “nudists” are very often made fun of in the media and frequently used to make jokes! I have seen this most with the phrase “naturist colony,” which has consistently been used for jokes and definitely has a connotation of being dorky, difficult, and unpopular.
Nudist Cartoon – Not That Sort Of Hang Out Nude
Perhaps one day we’ll reach a stage where we become the “normal” ones, and everyone else has to call themselves “textilists”! But anyhow, that’s after we take over the world. 😉
What do you guys believe? Do you like to simply hang out naked? Do you label yourself a naturist or or favor no label in the slightest? Has the word naturist been too beat-up over recent decades to be legitimately used anymore? Would people react differently when you first mentioned it depending on which term you used?
