Big-brained, upright, naked ape
I have been a hippy-style Green since the 1970s, and I was involved in the campaign for an Ecology party candidate in the 1979 General Election. More recently, since 2007 I have been an organiser of (and participant in) the annual York Naked Bike Ride, protesting about car culture and oil dependency, and celebrating the human body as the most environmentally-friendly means of transport. I have a simple lifestyle, travelling as little as possible, heating my house to the minimum (with dead wood as much as possible)and only buying things that are necessary. I am into 'natural', and prefer women to grow armpit and pubic hair, and to prefer not to wear make-up or a bra. On political (rather than religious) grounds, I am fairly involved in Quakerism.
