our priorities are beyond f*cked up.  American Horror Story goes into what?  season three of it's torture porn run and by all accounts doing quite well. none of these moralistic types seem to have any desire to shut down that show at all.  But let a woman show her nipples in public and OMG!  throw her in jail!

I don't get it.  I really don't.  we love violence, we want to see blood and pain on TV.  But sex?  that's evil?  hell, not even sex - just biology.  yes, women have breasts.  sometimes they show 'em off.  why you want to throw a woman into a jail cell for showing off her assets is entirely beyond me.

Personally, I find sideboob every bit as distracting as nipples, and that's not even getting into the very obvious area of exposed cleavage. Exposed cleavage is at least twice as distracting and dangerous as sideboob, which makes it perhaps 4, 5 times as dangerous as nipples. I mean, nipples are small, when you think about it. Well, not the  aerlioa aerloea aerloeieae puffy area, I mean, that's bigger, but in reality that's really no more than discolored skin and who cares about that. But nipples from a distance? Heck, you might not even realize they're nipples. You might think they're little points of acne or something. Bugbites, I don't know. But that's not my point. My point is that you're driving along, minding your own business, and bazonga -- there's some hugely endowed woman in a too-small jogging bra at the side of the road, cleavage and sideboob everywhere. What happens then? Your eyes leave the road for a moment, and suddenly there's a school bus and your life flashes yellow and 36 children are dead. It's absurd that we accept such daily risk as "normal" or "accepted" in a civilized society. Is some exposed cleavage worth dozens of dead children? I hope not. I want to believe we live in a world where that's not the case. The bottom line is that exposed breasts are really nothing more than a softer, fleshier brand of terrorism, and we need to draw a line. And if duct tape can help us do that, I'm all for it.

I'm fully convinced that we need to abolish legislatures at every level. They don't really do anything except pass stupid laws like this. Most governments would work fine with a manager who collects existing taxes and pays the bills.

FTA:  "On Wednesday, the state House Judiciary Committee C approved House Bill 34, which makes it a Class H felony to purposefully expose "private parts" for  the "purpose of arousing or gratifying sexual desire."

Apparently the law was sponsored after GoTopless.org sponsored a topless event to protest the fact that women are treated differently than men when it comes to bear chests.  From the GoTopless.org website:  ""As long as men are allowed to be topless in public, women should have the same constitutional right."

So when women expose their breasts at these protests they are not doing it for the purpose of arousing or gratifying sexual desire, it is done to draw attention to what they believe is something akin to discrimination based on the sex of the person.  Therefore this law will not prevent women from participating in these rally's by exposing their breasts, and if a law enforcement officer arrests a women under such circumstances, preventing the woman from exercising her right to protest, the officer could face a civil rights suit.

It's always been the attitude in America. People can get blown away or electrocuted or stabbed in a network TV show or PG movie but there hasn't been a boob in a PG-13 movie since Titanic.

The NSFW video link was fair.

It just wasn't well organized. An assortment of topless women and guys who were curious, and others who were just ogling the tits.
That wouldn't happen (so much) if nudity was common.

Republican state Rep. Rayne Brown told lawmakers that she was co-sponsoring the bill because activists had held a topless women's rights rally in Asheville last summer, where as many as a dozen women bared their breasts... she felt it was important to act before women tried to assert their rights again by going topless at another rally.

Apparently NC Lawmakers don't realize that first amendment rights trump local ordinance. Also, pretty sure the "for the purpose of arousing or gratifying sexual desire," part of the law will render the law toothless.

TOSViolation: I seriously need to find out what I can do about this.  I have an old friend who is in the NC senate, I think.  This is beyond wrong.


We NCers should push for an anti-gerrymandering State constitutional amendment. That's probably the only thing that can fix it short of waiting for enough Republicans to die off.

Serious question: Is there such a movement already in place? If not, ought we create one? Does the NCGA gate all amendment proposals, or can we use petition or somesuch to get it on the ballot?

I think I speak for all men when I say that nothing, NOTHING is more distracting than underboob.  Sideboob on most women looks like armpit tumors.

As, I was saying, boobs would save the world and I am not half kidding. If politicians were hot women with awesome knockers (not necessarily big, just nice and, exposed) no one would want to fight, and if they did argue, people would take an interest in local politics, from PTA meetings to city council, congress sessions we would be glued to the TV fapping and learning, making us better voters.

Boobs are god's 2nd greatest invention and anyone set to vilify them is either jealous or retarded.

I look at it this way. I HOPE my kids grown up and someday have sex. I also HOPE they never see a murder or torture. Why is it the other way around on what is allowed on TV and movies?

I guess when your country is settled by puritan asshats there are bound to be lasting side effects.

I love how they solved this "problem" (women protesting for the right to go anywhere topless) in NYC. The courts just said okay, whatever and made it legal. Guess what happened? Nothing. No chicks suddenly went shopping topless. No wimmins running around town waving their boobses. It was a complete non-event and now the protesters have to think up something else to be angry about.

Hear, hear.

I often catch glances at men's crotch areas.   Yesterday on the bus, for example.  There was this kid, perhaps early 20s, with a gigantic mound in the nether regions of his pants.  It sent my mind swirling.  I longed to unzip his trousers and see what beast was lurking underneath the 80-20 cotton/poly fabric that was just barely constrained his junk.  I mean, even flaccid it was huge; I could only imagine its size when it was fully erect.   I even went as far as to wonder if he were cut or uncut.

I put my cell phone on my crotch and allowed the vibrations to carry me away...

Then I missed my stop.


That was Mr. Coffee Nerves worthy.  I salute you.

So bearing breasts at a political protest would still be perfectly legal (by this law).

The woman in the mildly NSFW pic is not baring herself for either of those purposes. Or at least, she isn't accomplishing those purposes.
And the women who led the bare breast protests could claim they were intending to exercise their 1st amendment rights.

Oh, who am I kidding. This is NC we're talking about. They're the progressive part of the south - they want women to wear burkas, but at least they'll let them drive.
