Clearly that court is wrong and everyone involved should be declared mentally unsound and institutionalized

Didn't a court in NY rule the opposite? Supreme Court Showdown in 3... 2...

Somehow I'm expecting a court run by Roy Moore to say it would be okay if a man bared them for you.

Oh boy, would the salt of the Earth have a moral meltdown over that case. Becaused boobs at are always sexual in their eyes, even when feeding a child. The judge citing physiological differences is really using a bullshiat argument. The list is longer? What? Boobs and nether regions. Men: nether regions. Unless he means covering the ankles, too, it's a stretch.

Not to mention that this would grant one more freedom to women.

Damn.  Any law that prevents hot Asian women from going around topless needs to be reconsidered.

There was probably a lot of adjourning to chambers to study the evidence.
 
2017-11-10 02:53:44 PM  
Sorry, ladies.

The hard fact is that your girls are not likely to be useful to the American Volunteer Force when the day comes to violently overthrow the Globalist Occupation Government.

Be advised that many perspective American Volunteers will never have seen real tits before, and the sight of them on the battlefield risks distracting them for just long enough for the globalists to regroup and stage a successful counterattack.

So kindly stick to bearing arms---when posing in recruitment posters for the Cause only, of course (actually firing the things is men's work).

I would tend to agree with you, but at the same time I have also seen what an obese 74-year-olds breasts look like. Be careful what you wish for.

I don't mind that women don't have the right to bare their breasts in public.  As long as you call it a "privilege" and make it legal.
 
2017-11-10 02:57:43 PM  
So one of the judges explicitly said in the opinion that he felt the ordinance should apply to men too.

Was that enforceable, and did they accidentally just institute a state-wide "no shirt, no service" policy?  Because if so, that'd be pretty awesome.

And here, people just lay around naked in the summer.  The US, it's got some weird hang-ups.
 
2017-11-10 03:02:30 PM  
They can still bear them, right?

It would be a shame if they had to start leaving them at home.
 
2017-11-10 03:03:10 PM  
Eh, just don't do it when the weather is too cold.  Take care of yourself.

Dictatorial_Flair: What compelling government interest exists in banning this?


A government that can't keep its broads in line isn't a government worth having.
 
2017-11-10 03:04:51 PM  
Isn't this a clear cut case of equal protection under the law? If a man can go shirtless, preventing a woman from doing so is a pretty damn clear violation.

Dames hate it when you call 'em broads.

Hey, fark you, court!

Well, unless the court ruled that it's not a right, it's a duty.  As good Americans.  For the children.

The Puritan "sex is ebil" interest. Other than those hyperventilating idiots I don't think anyone cares.

Supreme Court already ruled on the subject of obscenity -- "they'll know it when they see it."  They'll ask to see the woman's breasts and make a ruling.

I'm a big fan of women being able to go topless in public, but I'm a little weirded out that the group behind Go Topless Day is a literal UFO cult, the Raelians
