It is a balmy june day and the weather is so nice you can't not go for a walk. You wander aimlessly until you pass by a park; during your walk, you passed a guy wearing nothing but sandals and a necklace. You enter the park, which is well-maintained because it is frequented by many happy people. On your right passes two men and a woman, the woman holding one of the men's hands each. One of the men makes a tawdry joke about the woman, who smiles unashamed as the other man returns a knowing grin.
The air feels clean from the trees and on the path ahead of you is a pond with a fountain. Around the circumference of the pond are a number of benches, some of them occupied: On one, two women sit and share mirthful stories. On the bench next to them, one leather-clad man gives another head while kneeling in front of him. As your journey takes you around the fountain, you see someone whose gender is completely indiscernible, reading a book peacefully.
Passing a field, you see a handful of college students playing frisbee; some of them dressed, some not (although the one with the freckles and fair skin had better put something on soon). Now almost at the entrance on the other side of the park, a couple passes you; she is dressed in a smart business suit and is holding the leash attached to her partner, who is wearing nothing but light boots and a collar, and who has his hands behind his back as if he were bound.
You don't think to look, though, as you walk past them and out of the park, because you see this kind of stuff all the time. As pleasurable and amusing as it was, today's journey has been another walk in the park for you. You grab a coffee or tea on the way home, and- mind cleared- you sit down and tend to your hobbies free of insecurity and inspired by the vitality around you.
Imagine a world without shame.
