Sure, everyone should have the freedom to go topless. Eventually, nobody would really think twice about it. Boobs are for babies, anyway.

It would be friggin' fantastic if I could take my shirt off in public. Of course, I'd have to deal with horny manfolk, but it would be lovely to have that particular freedom.

"...I hate watching all the guys take their shirts off and I just get to sit there all sweaty..."

*Pictures DX's avatar, sitting back... all sweaty... "Free the muffins! Free the muffins!" Suddenly, she's blotted out by raining rose petals...*
I'm sorry, what was the topic again?

Clothing that's suitable for the weather makes little difference to your temperature.

A bra by itself makes even less.

I say that the sweatiness argument is bunk unless you're being forced or coerced into wearing unsuitable clothing.

Sugar-I agree, but if all girls take to this then it's impossible to be shy after a while. Kinda like getting used to wearing shorts or something. I'm all for it. I hate watching all the guys take their shirts off and I just get to sit there all sweaty.

Um, I live in Texas and I'm pretty sure that people in Maine have no Idea what hot is, and women don't freak out here about taking their tops off.

I think the fallacy here is that somehow the nethers are inherently more dirty than anything else. But they're not. Hands and mouths are more dirty than butts, penises, and vaginas. Vaginas are actually self-cleaning. These are facts.


Unfortunately, they aren't. Except maybe the bit about mouths - human mouths are full of bacteria. Human bites are potentially pretty serious because of that.

Your groin area is home to a fair few bacteria. Probably not harmful, but certainly not cleaner than parts further away from your rectum.

Vaginas are full of bacteria - it's a symbiotic relationship that reduces the chance of infection by other bacteria. That's why antibiotics quite often result in infection - they kill off the "security guard" bacteria that usually live there, leaving an open house for other bacteria. But bacteria are symbiotic *in the right place*. In a different part of a body, they can cause problems.

xiquiripat: The comfort and responsibility issue I raised was in the context of the Law. You cannot make laws that abridge people's freedom for your comfort. You cannot make laws requiring people to wash their hands, not pee on the seat, and not be naked. That's authoritarian. When you have freedom, there is still social responsibility. Yes, people should respect their fellow man and be clean and tidy and considerate. Some people are, some people aren't. When you sacrifice freedom for safety/comfort, you usually end up with neither. Pretty sure Ben Franklin said something to that effect.

My point stands that no-one has a legal argument that does not impeded on people's rights.

As for disease: Organisms that cause STD and other disease cannot survive very long outside of the body. It is extremely unlikely that you could get an STD from a toilet seat, so how would a regular seat be any different? And if you happen to be clothed, is it really a problem?

I doubt most people would go fully nude in public. It's not part of Western Culture. The idea is to avoid authoritarian and tyrannical government with archaic laws based on shame and moral arrogance.

Decriminalizing nudity will not mean that hordes of naked people will roam around getting AIDS on your train. Your alarmism is what's hilarious. You misinformation about the human body and your disgust of it is sad and authoritarian.

It's not your responsibility to dictate cleanliness or clothing or appearance or expression to anybody else. It is your responsibility to tend to your own comfort. If there are naked people around and you don't want to be around naked people, Don't Go There.

Nudity is not inherently unsanitary. We are not talking about taking a dump or public sex being decriminalized. What we are talking about is eliminating a law that would throw someone in jail merely for being naked. It's illogical.

wow- breasts- how novel. In Spain a lot of women go topless- of all ages, you see older couples come down to the beach to sit in the sun for a bit, the ladies are topless. A grandmother still looks exactly like a grandmother, not offensive, just an older lady with breasts. Do people think they fall off when you age?

These women are the reason shirts were invented.
They should be silent and return to the kitchen.

"men are disgusting. they completely ruin the entire point of this"
I thought the point was to bring social acceptability to appearance of topless women.

The women appeared in a social gathering.
A couple of people showed up and accepted it. Some of those people took snap shots, not even realizing that they had just witnessed a piece of possibly significant history.

So, Nuke, is it just me or do you feel offended by the idea that people would enjoy seeing you topless?

Lol, it's legal for women to go topless in Maine, so what are they protesting? People's general opinion on the matter?

Go live in a seperatist enclave with the other silly bigots and stop bothering the grown-ups.
