Women have been going topless here for many a year now.  Generally speaking, the women that are going topless are the ones who most certainly should not be.

I heard this like 20 years ago. And yeah, unless it's South Beach, all the places in the US I've been to that encourage nudity, shouldn't.

Dammitsomuch, I've been trying to get Holly on Fark for many years now with submissions. One today as a matter of fact. Holly is pretty out there, she worked for the ad agency that I work for and I have known and had the pleasure of working with her for many years. She's pretty crazy but in a good way. She has a lot of creative passion, something you need in the NYC ad bis.

/you go girl, I'll send this to you!!!

that first picture is just damn, had a family reunion on the St lawrence river in NY and a bunch of women did a topless "protest" just laying out playing volley ball and such, one of the greatest days of my childhood, shocked no one had a heart attack

I, for one, definitely care if fat, hairy, pasty people with droopy tits, saggy balls or skin like the Piltdown Man insist on running about naked in full view of god and everyone.

Only beautiful people should be naked in public.

Pish. Boobs are good. Big ones, little ones, perky ones, and all the various colors and shapes in between. The important thing is the gal who is packing them, and the rest sorts itself out. I've seen a few boob jobs that were...well, to be fair, spectacular. The problem is that some gals seem to think that bigger is better, as opposed to shape. One relatively recent girl critter had hers done to give nature a bit of a lift, and she didn't go crazy, and I wanted to kiss her surgeon, because they were amazing. Just a bit of lift, nothing crazy, and they fit her shape and figure. She was more confident, and after a couple of kids, and an ugly divorce, I don't blame her for wanting a bit of a lift, so to speak.

I'm not a fan of the school that figures to shove a potato sack of silicon into what had been an A-cup, but then again, those women tend to be trying to compensate for something, and that's a whole different set of issues that I'm not exactly looking for.

But in general: boobs are good. All shapes and sizes. All God's chill'uns gots to dance, they just don't have to dance to the same tune...

As a guy, honestly I dont care, between, walmart and the gym I seen men and women wearing all sorts of disturbing things, but if they dont car and I dont have to guard them in a pickup game, they can have at it.  Mind you I live in NC so if you havnt spent some time in NC walmarts you dont understand the amount of exposed skin that is always flopping around

WhippingBoy: Canton: Seems fair. If it's legal for men to bare their moobs in public, it should certainly be legal for women to bare their boobs. Especially on a hot day.

I would not go topless, but the point is having the choice. So, good on you, NYC.

/Boobs are not a crime
//Even if some boob jobs are

I dunno. I think that anything you stick in a baby's mouth should be covered up. That's why women can't do topless, and why men can't go bottomless.

Maybe I'm just a poor ignorant Southerner, but I've never understood the big push for women to go topless.  Having lived in Georgia for the majority of my life, I can safely say that the vast majority of men who go topless in public are the low-class redneck types (unless of course, you're engaged in an activity where a minimum of clothing is practical, like swimming, mowing the grass, etc.).  Do you ladies really want equality with them?

"No shirt, no shoes, no service" signs are still ubiquitous in the restaurants here.

When I was deployed to Guantanamo Bay, I learned there are certain traditions to be maintained, one of which is jumping into the bay as the ferry is leaving if you have friends leaving the island. So, my friend and I decide to get speedos to wear to the jumping from the pier. When I get to the end of the pier, I'm standing next to an O-6 (I was an E-5 at the time) and drop trou, stand akimbo, in all my blue-clad bulging glory. The colonel next to me looks, shakes his head and says, "Really, Sergeant?" I nodded proudly and said, "Damn right sir!" and dived right in. It was a moment he and I will never forget.

1. Clothing is very context sensitive. Tux at wedding = fine, at a ball game = out of place. Bikini at beach = fine, at restaurant = out of place. So while it may be LEGAL to be topless anywhere, cultural norms will/should limit it to places you'd expect it to be - beaches, laying out in parks, backyards, maybe sunning on balconies. Practically no men walk around a city with no shirt on; why would women be expected/feared to start doing so?

2. While people often dress to impress others, sometimes they dress for comfort - and don't give a fark whether anyone else cares what they look like. The beach, park, and when it's hot are times when comfort often trumps style. So the whole "I don't want to see ugly people" camp can STFU.

3. "Public" does not mean walking down the street - although that is included. "Public" means anywhere someone unexpected can see you. Your house is "public" if people in the street can see in the window. Your backyard is "public" if the neighbors can see into it - even if it's fenced. So toplessness being legal in public means women don't need to worry about being arrested for laying out on their back porch when the nosy neighbor complains to the police. Or that they can leave their curtains open and not worry about someone catching a peak from the street or other building.

Many places in the USA have pretty harsh "public decency" laws and women can go to jail for months just for baring a boob. CAN go to jail - not saying they are prosecuted, but the law says boobies are illegal and the punishment is jail time - even sex offender registration.

All those states where it isn't "Legal", I have to imagine is only because there hasn't been a court case to overrule it yet.   It would be hard for a court to make the case that anywhere a man is allowed to be topless, a woman is forbidden to, if she wants to be.   Only surprising one to me where that hasn't happened yet apparently is Florida, you'd think someone would have run that through the courts there by now.

Many localities have anti-topless/nudity laws (anti-nudity tends to include topless). The problem with overturning such laws is you have to have someone willing to spend all the time and money to fight the law itself. Unless there's damages and/or court costs likely to be recovered, there's no monetary incentive to challenge. It's a risk-effort-reward balance that doesn't work.

Agreed... which is why in cold climates, etc, there hasn't been a case run through the courts.  Which is why I was really only surprised by Florida, which you'd think would have at least one person who'd want to go topless on a beach.
