As a man, one of the things that makes life worth living, is the image of a scantily clad woman.

Take away the cladding, and therefore the seduction, and what else is there.

I love that "US vs. EU" thong thing. It's especially funny because Europeans are as fat as Americans, with a similar obesity rate.

Nice on Fatty Acids.. My ideal woman has a turtle neck, and a pair of jeans. Covered head to toe to make me wonder what is going on under those clothes! Makes me insane!
 
2005-08-15 10:28:07 AM  
Forget my last post.

I now say change topless laws, but with a clause banning fatties.

The sad thing is that people who might look good topless usually don't go around topless and the people who should have to wear clothing are the ones who want to walk around topless.

Let's look around my neighborhood on any weekend. There's me, a 42yo male, 6', 185#, no gut. Nice arms, pecs, etc. I wear a shirt outside. The guy across the street looks like he's about to give birth, he always is w/o a shirt. One of my neighbors, she's in her late 20s, runs a lot, works out, is sorta hot. Always wears tshirts and reasonable shorts. There is another girl who walks around here, maybe 5'4" and 200#...she always wears halter tops and daisy dukes. Nothing but celulite, and it's freaking gross.

Yeah, the human body can be beautiful but in some cases it's not. Those are the ones that scare me.

Here is someone who would look nice sans top. :D

It's kind of funny that the largest purveyor of porn on the planet is also amongst the most sexually repressed.
 
2005-08-15 10:34:49 AM  
spqr_ca,
Not sexually repressed, rather respectful of others. But I'm in favor of this if it'll drive some fundies (of all religious persuasions) off their rockers.

Oh wait, maybe we don't want more rockerless religious fundies because they get all weird and stuff about this and point at the US and say Great Satan and then go back to stirring their yellow cax mix.

Hooray for the boobies!
 
2005-08-15 10:47:21 AM  
God this thread is pathetic. Let's recap so we can all go somewhere else.

Men like boobs but want ultimate control over how they are used and presented because they are unable to control their own bodies reaction to them. Control over women has always been a driving force for the male of our species (in fact, many species...)

My personal opinion is that it's got less to do with the 'we've evolved that way' argument that features here and more to do with the fact that we are victims of our own pathetic religious and historical machinations. We respond sexually to the taboo rather than the literal physicality.

We should all have a right to nudity whether we're 1 or 100 years old. Whether we are fat or thin or, like some people on this thread, incredibly narrow minded and probably very young and inexperienced.
 
2005-08-15 10:48:22 AM  
To those saying that it is a biological urge that men are turned on by breasts - Sorry, that's just wrong. For thousands of years cultures have had women topless, and the men weren't walking around continually horny. The only thing that makes breasts a sexual object is our outdated sexual mores.
 
2005-08-15 10:49:01 AM  
The problem is that the distaff equivalent of Biggie Thang's poster boy for bras or rather bros are what you're going to see. It's just like here in SoCal, for every hottie in a thong bikini you see there are 20 who you can't tell if they're even wearing a bikini bottom or not. When your bikini top is below your rib cage that's nature's way of telling you it's time to switch to something less revealing, like Carhartt coveralls.
 
2005-08-15 10:50:50 AM  
OH NOES!!! The women have the boobies!1!eleventy!!2 Someone please think of the children!!

If we can no longer deny that women have the boobies, society will fall apart!!!

All women should be required to remove their boobages or keep them covered up with ultra sports bras and blanketseseses!!!!!

And, no nipply pokage through the fabrics will be tolerated!

Everyone must act like they don't know women have nipples or boobies!

...it's for the kids!

Ever notice that the women who are fighting to be able to go bare chested in public are the ones most people DON'T want to go bare chested in public.

God you sound like a wanker. Do you really think you have the right to determine what's 'beautiful' and be offended by the way other people look? I bet you're the kind of guy who fancies himself as a real free thinker. A real IQ. However you aren't smart enough to realise that you are one in a million victims of the big, fat, bald guy (with cellulite) in the marketing machine who peddals a beauty myth at you so that you believe in, and buy, his abdominizer.

Let me tell you this - those people who offend you so much. They're happier than you will ever be.

Dinki, have you ever met any men? Men are *always* walking around continually horny. Always have been, always will.

I wonder if these women get mad when people look at their unclothed boobies.
 
2005-08-15 11:05:55 AM  
Everyone, please just stop talking about "women you want to go topless versus women you don't want to go topless."

Who cares what you want?

It's their freaking right to not have to cover up and be ashamed of their bodies. Contrary to my earlier post, the fabric of society will not be destroyed if there is no fabric over some breasts.

It's the human body. We all have one.

Why must we cover up and act shocked when we see nudity? It's who we are. With very few exceptions, all men have penises and women have vaginas and breasts. Heck, even some men have breasts. There are even those with all these things.

And, don't forget that everyone has nipples.

Where am I going with this? Am I trying to shock you with what I'm saying?

Well, if you are at all SHOCKED or you've learned anything in what I just posted, then you are either the least observant person that ever existed, or clearly in a deeper denial than even I, in my pessimistic views, was capable of imagining.


Human body - we all have one.


We only react to it how we do and cover things up because society has trained us that way. No one should be ashamed or feel that their body makes them bad / evil / sinful.

It's ok to have breasts. Big, small, floppy, firm, lopsided, large nipples, small nipples, scarred, burned, pierced, real, fake, spotted, dotted, or tattooed, they are just a part of the human body, and there is nothing wrong with them.

ok, I'm done ranting.

ALL women in the USA should have the ability to go topless without legal ramifications!

This double standard must END!

All women in NY State CAN LEGALLY GO TOPLESS IN PUBLIC ON PUBLICLY OWNED LAND.

It's been the law since 1996 or so.

Guiliani held a press conference on the ruling, it was one of the funnier one's he ever had.
 
2005-08-15 11:15:30 AM  
Katarina Witt, the East German skating champ, said that when she developed she quit going topless to the beach because she felt uncomfortable with everyone staring at her. She didn't specify if they were staring at her because she was an international sports figure or because she was sporting fabulous D cup knockers but I suspect it was the latter because she had a successful skating career from a rather early age. She said people quit looking at her face when they talked to her.
 
2005-08-15 11:21:32 AM  
boobies are instruments of sexuality, always have been, always will be.

They aren't vestigial appendages on women, like they are on men, so don't be surprised at men's reactions to them and act like these men are abnormal.

Now, do you want your 13 year old daughter walking around topless in the mall? What about in school, should she be forced to play "shirts vs skins" soccer like the boys?
 
2005-08-15 11:22:12 AM  
The more topless women there are, the more rapes...

Whoa, hold the idiot train right there, buddy.

Crime rates are lower in countries with legalized prostitution, and tons of interesting information on the subject

I know prostitution != toplessness, but the two aren't mutually exclusive - it could easily be said that "in countries where sex is culturally accepted instead of taboo, the crime rate is lower", etc.
 
2005-08-15 11:22:38 AM  
so why were the women arrested?
but not charged?

sounds like harrassment
hello lawsuit

stupid cops

/can we arrest them for being MORANS?
 
2005-08-15 11:24:20 AM  
wait until the whores in NYC start walking around topless
think the cops will be "Able" to find them and arrest them?

great job they are doing on the war on hos
 
2005-08-15 11:24:38 AM  
They started allowing women to go topless in NYC probably 10 years ago.

Only once have I seen one. I was riding my bike down the greenway on the west side (basically a park/bike path that runs the length of the island) and caught a girl standing up topless out of the corner of my eye.

As I did a double-take, did i just see that, type of moment, i nearly veared into a guy riding the other way doing the exact same thing.

Usually, these laws include prohibitions on toplessness in sexual contexts. Given that such professionals are pretty much defined as a "sexual context" - I think they could bust them on illegal toplessness anyways.
 
2005-08-15 11:27:45 AM  
Here in Ontario, I never see topless women on the street, but have seen a handful of them at beaches (usually the studenty-type you'd hope would take advantage of it). Give it time, it will start being used.

So it's ok to force boys to be clothed/not clothed, but not girls?

I don't think any of them(male or female) should be forced to go topless if they don't want to. My schools always solved this problem by having one team wear jerseys over their normal clothes.. or have each team in a different color jersey.

I'm with the anti-double-standard crowd. Either everyone has a choice of toplessness, or no one does.

I'm of the opinion that Toplessness is dangerous (to my lunch if they're ugly, to my attention if they're not).

I guess its up to the stardards of the community involved. Not me, or other outsiders.
 
2005-08-15 11:35:05 AM  
You do not have the right to not be offended.

You do not have the right to shelter yourself from reality by imposing restrictions on others.

That is all.

Incorrect. Local governments pass ordinances on behavior, lawn care, house painting, and indecency all the time.

Hey, binnster, that's a nice stereotypical image you provided. Do you have one proving how much betters whites are over blacks, or straight people over gays, too?



No, sorry.
 
2005-08-15 11:42:54 AM  
Well I think there should be limits on toplessness, just like everything else. I'm fine with studies stating that more topless women means less sexual repression, etc. But you can't deny it isn't going to cause problems. There will always be people who will make fun of disgusting people going topless, maybe a guy will 'accidentally' lay a hand on a hot topless girl and then a lawsuit happends. Some dood figures if she's cool enough to go topless, she's cool with me giving em a quick squeeze. She looked at me while being topless, she wants to have my babies. I won't even get into children being naked.

I see naked boobs all the time wether it's me in person or on the internet, but life still comes to a crawl when I see them. I am a boob man, and I will always get turned on by them. I'm MADE that way. All the guys in my family are boob men. Try debating philosophy when all the blood is in your member :)

I don't think it's possible for men to be desinsitized by too much titty. The fascination is biological, and will remain the same whether the goods are covered/enhanced by clothing, or bare.

I don't know man. In the 1600's the people were fascinated and offended by seeing a woman's bare ankles. That seems to have faded out unless I missed something, and I'd say it's from the women showing them off and saying "get over it".

Lordnor
You used a lot of long words and made an evolutionary standpoint, and it looks great when viewed as a whole, but basically your whole argument is, "When women stood up, men farked them from the front, and suddenly noticed the boobies on them, and became quite obsessed with the discovery." That's a bit, umm... yeah...

Topless is good as long as it is never forced. Let any and all make their own choice in these matters. But if 10 were topless in NY over the weekend, where might I ask are the farking pictures...? Surely someone had a digital camera there and bout time they shared. lol... nuff said.
 
2005-08-15 11:44:45 AM  
I don't see what the big deal is.

I walk around manhattan with my cock out all the time.
 
2005-08-15 11:44:56 AM  
It's a slippery slope from women regularly walking around topless to men starting to like a woman for her mind rather than her body. Just imagine a world where the hot, young things end up on the streets homeless while the older rich men are now dating plain-jane women their own age with great personalities.

How will the hot ones survive if their sugar daddies have been desensitized to their bodies being sexual?
 
2005-08-15 11:45:31 AM  
I like the caption: "Cops had to quell excited crowds."
