Do we Desire Nudist Naturist Labels? Or Can We Just Hang out Naked?

Can We just Hang out in the Nude?
Hang out Nude: Growing up, I never once called myself a naturist It was always nudist. I started using this label once we started FKK, and I Had actually really like it if this turned into the mainstream term for what we love.

As FKK, we consider these terms (generally) synonymous, but some have their own notion about what each one means or what kind of connotation they've. I've heard some say that naturists are more politically active in naturism / naturism beyond only frequenting nudist locations. I have also discovered that in England they use the term 'naturist' to describe someone who takes it more seriously as a lifestyle and goes nude every day, on a regular basis.
Some say the word 'naturist' has negative connotations from yesteryear, and today it should be "naturist"! It is not uncommon for the media to misuse the term, connecting it with indecent exposure or inappropriate sexual conduct. It is also not difficult to see that "nudists" are frequently made fun of in the media and regularly used to make jokes! I've found this most with the phrase "naturist colony," which has constantly been used for jokes and definitely has a connotation of being dorky, difficult, and unpopular.
Some individuals have proposed that we do away with these labels completely because we've moved beyond them, and the words have lost their authenticity.
Nudist Cartoon - Not That Kind Of Hang Out Nude
Perhaps one day we'll reach a stage where we become the "normal" ones, and everyone else must call themselves "textilists"! But anyhow, that's after we take over the world. ;)
What do you guys believe? Do you enjoy to simply hang out naked? Would you label yourself a naturist or or favor no label whatsoever? Has the word nudist 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?
