Inspired by the last post, about a young woman who wishes she registered naked and instead of just topless, the possibility of changing your registration is kind of an interesting background detail to consider. It may not come up in captions too often, but since I like imagine how this stuff would work if it were real, let’s think about it for a bit. Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments.
Obviously the fact that you have to commit to being permanently naked for a certain length of time (usually one or two years minimum) is a core part of the setting, so it certainly shouldn’t be easy to get out of. And if you’re received a permanently naked or bottomless sentence as punishment for a crime, then clearly the only way to change it would be to successfully appeal your conviction, same as if you were put in jail.
But there might be some cases where changing your registration would be reasonable. For instance in that caption, she’s registered voluntarily, and she wants to be more exposed, not less. In that case, I can’t think of any reason she shouldn’t be allowed to “upgrade” her registration to permanently naked. The same might apply somewhere that used the strict/standard/relaxed system. Say someone registered “relaxed naked”, meaning only their nipples and crotch actually have to be exposed, but then they find out their employer would still require them to wear a modified uniform, and they decide they’d rather just be totally naked all the time. Would that be reasonable to allow?
As for actually canceling a voluntary registration like this poor lady wants to do, there probably would be some kind of process, but it wouldn’t be easy. You’d have to prove that you’d actually been coerced into it, that your registration is causing a real significant hardship or some kind of very solid reason like that. Even in a jurisdiction that was liberal about it and willing to basically let you change your mind, I imagine you’d have to show some kind of “good cause”, like a major event in your life which you could not have anticipated when you registered. Back to that last caption, even if she’s lucky enough to live somewhere like that, I doubt if a breakup would be considered a strong enough reason. Maybe if she’d actually been married and got divorced.
