How unusual is this?
I am a 24 year old female who is pretty much normal in most ways...EXCEPT there IS one thing about me which I've been told by friends is really weird, even though I've never felt like it is.
Here goes. I'll just jump right to it:
Basically, I've been told that it's really weird that I let my family see me naked without caring.
I mean, I don't do it ON PURPOSE or anything. But, really, when I'm at home visiting my folks, I never make any effort at all to hide myself like that. I just do what I do when I'm at my own place.
Like, if I'm getting out of the shower and walking back to my room, I may (or may not) bother covering myself with a towel. It depends. Or, if I have to change clothes really quick, I may (or, again, may not) bother to close the door. And, yes -- sometimes, members of my family might see me. But I don't think it's really all that big of a deal.
Yet, my FRIENDS practically freaked out when they were told by ANOTHER friend about it. See, it all started with this one incident recently when my unnamed friend and I were staying at my mom and dad's house for a night, and I went downstairs to grab something from the laundry room without any clothes on. It was just a random thing -- I needed to get something, ran downstairs to get it, and didn't even think about the fact that I was totally naked. Look, why would anyone worry about that in their OWN HOME?
Anyway, my dad happened in the kitchen when I ran down there, and he asked me something as I walked by, so I stopped and answered him. To ME, it was nothing, but my friend FREAKED OUT. She was like, "I can't believe you just did that! You stood there naked and just talked to your dad?!? He SAW you!! YOU'RE CRAZY!!! AHHHHHHH!!!!"
So...again, I guess my question is whether it's actually so strange that I would not care at all if my family sees me undressed, and whether it's weird that THEY never have said anything about it, either (well, except maybe my brother, who has gone "Agh, COME ON!" and averted his eyes on the two or three times when he spotted me unclothed, even though it was funny).
I don't know. To me, it's nothing. I guess I just never hit that undefinable embarrassment milestone when I was growing up where I would suddenly be all MODEST at home. WHO CARES what my family sees? It's not like I'm some sexual object to these people.
But, I guess no one I know thinks the same way. So, I ask you...am I just weird or something???
