Go Topless Day: Is America Ready For Topless Sunbathing?
Posted 26 August 2012 - 10:49 PM
Do you think topless sunbathing is wrong? Well back in the 1930's, American prudes in positions of power thought the idea of a man taking off his shirt at a beach in the US was out of line and immoral.
Yes, the politicians and preachers in that backwards era felt they had to impose their own personal prejudices and agendas by making it illegal for men to be shirtless in public. They wrongly said they had a civic and/or godly duty to protect women and children from the sight of men's bare chests.
These prudes of course were wrong and out of touch with the average citizen. Thousands of men started protesting shirtless at the beaches on the east coast in the mid 1930's. Hundreds were arrested. But, by the late 1930's, politicians and judges had matured and realized it was not shameful or ungodly to see a man at the beach without a shirt.

women should be able to go topless wherever men are able to go topless
What you are proposing is at least a few steps beyond what the writer was proposing.
It would be a matter of taking the bad with the good to have breasts exposed in all the same locations we currently view men without a shirt on.
In the future the opposition to women being topless will likely seem as prudish as we now view the attitudes towards men being topless on the beach in the 1930s.

For example, Ashville, North Carolina.

A couple of things... obviously the general american perception of nudity is skewed compared to pretty much the rest of the world, we're generally more prudish about such things... even with something as innocuous as a woman breast feeding her kids seems to cause an uproar. Women should have the right to go topless if they want to, I have no problem with it.
The only negative side with that for men that like women is that not all breasts, and in fact most of them, aren't the perky nice ones... so you gotta take the bad with the good.
I'm sure there are lots of women that would like to tan topless, but I'm curious as to how many women would like to be able to go topless in general... I know my wife hates going without a bra, as do a lot of women with medium and large breasts because they bounce and hurt them when they're trying to do things...
...oh and Cantrell, I've told you before man, it's ok if you don't like women's breasts... no one here is judging you.

Wanna cut the grass or garden topless? Go ahead.
Wanna wash the car topless? Be my guest.
Fishing and swimming topless? Seems like a crime any other way.
And no they shouldn't be restricted to special titty zones.

With me anyway, not so much with my wife.
If you have the right to go topless... I have the right to parade around with a boner.
These 2 things are inexorably linked.
