  • When I was younger I would have covered. Now I'm a nearing middle aged hairy nudist, so I don't particularly care what people think of my appearance.

  • Cover it because it's medically better. I really don't care what people think of me as far as I look, just ask my kids, lol

  • Cover it up

  • People I know with skin conditions will cover it whenever the weather is cool enough to, but sometimes they just get tired of being hot and that overrides their fear of being ridiculed by the socially inept.
