Lots of good advice for yesterday's reader. I'd urge the writer to become more...accommodating. Because it sounds like the constant nudity bothers him. Nudity should be acceptable, though. His roommate has what he was born with and he's (obviously) not ashamed of that.

states it well on his blog:
Reaction to Nudity
Naked bodies causes all sorts of things, because our society never taught us to face them. It’s actually the other way around, most people don’t know how to react to nudity… we only consider nudity valid when we’re taking a shower, with a closed door, where no one can see us. Or when we’re going to have sex, usually at night, with the lights off. We talk about embarrassing situations and say “I feel like I’m naked”, like there was nothing worse in the whole world. Starting from the story of Adam and Eve they have been teaching us that we have to be ashamed of our body, that we have to hide it.
The human body is beautiful. It would be great if most people weren’t ashamed by their own body, both for themselves as well as when they’re with other people, and that they would feel free to do with it what they wanted. It would also be great if no one felt that stubborn urge to humiliate, expose and judge the bodies of other people in order to control them. The human body is there to enjoy, value and admire, everything with consent and complete freedom.
It's All Hallows Eve. Don't let the clown frighten you - he's offering you a treat.
Hope you get all the candy and goodies you hope for.
Don't let any party guests hog the pumpkin.
If you see this costume (sold by Skivvies) be sure to snap a few photos for us!
Happy Halloween, everyone!
