The G-finger needs to do it like they did in NY, through the courts. New York is a "topfree" state where the courts decided that it was illegal discrimination against women to force them to cover their chests when men were allowed to uncover theirs.

How come MA can declare that to not allow Gays to marry is discriminatory, while MA allows this type of discrimination against women?

On August 15, 2010, Mr. Levenson writes:
"Katherine Gundelfinger has collected the requisite 200 signatures to place a local question on the November ballot sure to test public mores: Should the state’s definition of nudity be changed to allow women to sunbathe topless?"
Mr. Levenson, why didn't you type the question as it appears on the PPQ Petition forms? The question as you paraphrased it is misleading to readers.
Also your statement: "The nonbinding question, if approved by voters in the district where she lives, would not immediately transform Pittsfield’s modest swimming holes into nude beaches."
is contrary to the question. If the states definiton of nudity is amended, approving this legislation would never create "nude" beaches in Mass.
I believe the Press (through The Boston Globe, WNYT,) has purposely misrepresented this proposed Ballot question by misquoting the question as it actually appears on the PPQ Petition forms in order to protect the dangerous, money driven interests of the porn industry.
The word "topless" has, and always will, bring to mind images of loose, immoral women moving provocatively around poles in seedy clubs with the intention of sexually exciting individuals in exchange for money.
The word "topless" appears nowhere on the PPQ Petition forms and should not have been used in the write-up.

The word "clueless" should appear in every post you type. As in:

"Don't try to compose an intelligent reply to anything I post, because I'm totally clueless and locked in my own little world of perversion and lunacy."

The "top-free seven" from Rochester , NY set the precedence for dismissal on the basis of discrimination and question of intent but women are still in a precarious situation in NY if they want to walk, swim or sun without shirts, they still face the fear and humiliation of arrest for indecent exposure because the nudity law in NY has not been changed to reflect equality and to reflect the outcome of that case. That may be because New York is a center for media production.
The amendment I propose would “amend the states definition of nudity so that No part of the female breast is included, and so that females of any age may be unclothed from the waist up in public, anywhere males may be, including in print and on film.”

On May 26, 2010 I submitted signatures to Pittsfields Mayor Ruberto asking for a window size poster on display for public view outside a local Adult Video store of a woman in a position of sexual arousal to be removed . Breasts and pubic areas were covered but the picture was obviously in violation of state law. Shortly (3-6 days) after submitting my complaint the poster was taken down from public view. It was pointed out to me that if the states definition of nudity is amended, and I would like to see that happen Nationwide, posters of women unclothed from the waist up may be displayed on Adult Video store windows legally. I suggested that a proposal restricting the use of outdoor pictorial displays by Adult Related businesses may be in order.
Promotions for Mass Beaches would be free to include pictures of both males and females of all ages unclothed from the waist up in any outdoor advertising campaigns , along with any other non-adult related products and services including made for tv shows, movies and commercials .

It was countered that prohibiting Adult Stores from using outdoor pictorial advertisements is an infringement of that industries 1st Amendment right.
Prohibiting women from walking and swimming without shirts is an infringement of their 14th Amendment right and this prohibition is contrary to equality.

Girls taught to believe that their upper bodies are immoral, dirty and to be covered at all times and poor body image for females is a serious issue.

Men, women and children being taught to view the female, specifically the female breast as an object of sexual fantasy and taboo is a serious issue.

Women putting their health at risk to inject their breasts with foreign substances apparently to appear ‘sexy’ enough through clothes is a serious issue.

The visual knowledge of the female breast being withheld from girls and boys in every day American life while the visual knowledge of the male breast is revealed to them in everyday American life and the resulting consequences (poor body image for females, the objectification of the female, an unrealistic view and unrealistic expectations of the female body)are all serious issues.

One Phrase from Chapter 272 Sec 31 from the Mass General Laws I want stricken reads:“the female breast in a state of sexual excitement.” This statement, if not false, is based on gender inequality . The female breast is capable of showing no more ‘sexual excitement’ than the male breast. For both, the nipple becomes visibly harder or softer depending on temperature and physical stimulation.

TheTruthHurts, should mini-skirts, heels and low cut shirts be outlawed? Reading around the sarcasm of your post , it seems as if you are saying that anything a female does or wears which leads to male arousal should be outlawed.

"In a society where men and women do not have ALL of the SAME rights we cannot say that we have reached the highest level of social consciousness."
Men (and women)who have reached the highest level of consciousness are aroused when THEY CHOOSE to be aroused, not automatically , when in view of what appears to be a sexy object.
