otoh (54) Well, overwhelmingly yes - I am all for parity and it is simply a rule that's different for men and women, and it shouldn't be that way.

However, although that logical part of me thinks that a topless woman is no different from a topless man, that breasts are no big deal... there's the part of me that's here at PU/TBP. Breasts are a big deal :) and there's a case for preserving mystique...

turboshaft (24) REPLY TO #1 - otoh :

I don't think many lawmakers argue for "preserving mystique" when it comes to defending most legislation, especially public nudity/indecency laws. Granted, I personally think politicians are professional bullshitters so the issue is kind of moot. :-)

Still, beyond the standard squawks of the puritanical outragers I don't see any reasonable, rational argument for separate laws for the sexes in terms of public dress. I could understand more stringent laws for children for safety reasons but the opposite usually seems to be true (up to a point, of course). Try letting your girlfriend stroll around in a diaper or just totally nude down at a public beach and see what happens...

Private property is totally different so the sky--or your personal courage to get naked--is the limit in those places. Interestingly, in the U.S. it seems "public nudity" is really only legal in private places that explicitly allow it. Go figure.

Capn (28) Very eloquently put, otoh.

I completely agree.

RustyJ (145) Yes. And that means swimming halls, beaches etc. I think men shouldn't be allowed to walk on streets topless. To me it's just lack of taste and looks usually horrible.

pat362 (373) I don't think women should be allowed topless in the same places where guys are allowed. Call me a prude but I don't want to go to the waterpark with my nephews and have a bunch of topless women all over the place. I already have a problem with some of the bathing suits girls wear.

Another problem is in regards to age. Would you allow underage girls to also be topless and if they can't then how are you going to police this?
I know I don't carry any identification when I'm in a waterpark or a beach.

tangub (155) I don't think so, in summer when driving round the streets I have enough problems keeping my eyes on the road as it is when girls are walking around in short skirts and skimpy tops without the added distraction of having them walk around topless.

rearadmiral (380) After a court challenge many years ago the law the barred women from going topless (which wasn't applied to men) was overturned in Canada. Since then, women have had the right. But, I can also report that we aren't exactly overwhelmed with hot, young coeds strolling down the street or beach with no tops on. Once a year some women's groups hold a parade to mark the anniversary of the court ruling, but I've never seen one of those either.

RustyJ (145) REPLY TO #5 - pat362 :

Well, in Europe it's quite typical that little kids swim naked in public places. Anyway, most of us are born out of a pussy and suck tits as infants. It's adults that sexualize those body parts, not the children. I doubt they would be bothered seeing tits in waterpark if it wasn't for adults who've made them think there is something wrong with that.

Drooler (220) Sure they should have the right. When does it start? ;)

pat362 (373) REPLY TO #8 - RustyJ :

I make a huge distiction betwen a girl under 12 and a 14 to 17 years old girl. I'm from Quebec so we are probably as close to European in attitude as you can get in North America so I have no issue with nudity per say but a topless 10 to 12 years old girl is not the same as a topless 14 to 17 years old girl. The way girl bodies change these days. It's not uncommon for 14 years old to have some pretty decent sized breast so that exposing them in public is just asking for trouble. This gets worse as the girls get older and start to look older and older.

I don't know how it is in Europe but over-sexualising children and teens is starting to be a big problem in North America. I'd hate to have to add topless teens to this equation. I'd also like to add that I'm not overly thrilled to see topless young men in places where they shouldn't be.

slutty (111) I'm with most here that I think its fine for women, although one must be careful what you wish for, especially in the obesity plagued US.

Monahan (42) With some of the microbikinis now being sported at public beaches, especially those that don't even cover the areola or a simple thread like string exposing the butthole, this is really a silly question.

Gazette Risque (55) Well, yes. Of course.

Equal rights, right?

mbaya (364) Yes they should have the right. In most cases though it may be a better idea if they cover up. I like breasts as much as the next man, but I would never want to see most of them on the women you see on the street.
