What constitutes showing breasts in public? I think breasts are just like a man's chest, no huge deal, it's the individual's view that makes them pornographic or 'dirty'. Breastfeeding mothers effectively show their breasts on some level, and some people even find that offensive.

There shouldn't be a law against breasts.

Breasts are one of the best things the big guy (gal) made.If a guy with man boobs (moobs) can take off his shirt why not a woman? Every Female on the planet has some way to feed her young its all very natural.I think part of a womans self esteem problem could be we tell them to cover up almost to the point where they could feel being Bare Breasted is unnatural. NONE OF US WERE BORN WITH CHOTHES!!!!!!!!!!

I think it's true about the unnatural feeling. I'd like to say that I'm 100% comfortable going braless, but the truth is that I'm not. It feels strange, not only that, for women with larger breasts, it may not be practical, because there is no way to avoid the sense of extra weight, and then there is the reality of gravity, and a portion of the world thinks that women have perky boobs for all eternity and tend to expect that. Me personally, I think it's weird for a mature woman to have boob implants. It looks wrong.

ahh, the misoginistic oppression of women by men. perhaps older than civilization, itself. men have always placed the blame for their own misguided emotions at the feet of their women, declaring the nude female foul, and satanic and wrong.

"if it causes pleasantness, it must surely be evil! bare tits!?! gasp! surely this will cause sever damage to my own male psyche! i want to touch it- but i want to butcher it. it makes me warm- it makes me burn. damnable tit!you've cursed my soul to hell!! surely it is the woman's fault that i feel so dirty. of course she is to blame for my own pornographic imaginings. how can i be blamed when she is running around- bare, nude and pure, enticing and enchanting. my arousal tells me it is evil and should be punished accordingly.
cover! cover! cover the woman!! for the sake of our souls- cover her!"

i say, leave no tit covered. we have the right to bare arms. i say we need the right to bare breasts, as well.

I've been a breast-lover for as long as I can remember, and as much as I know a lot of people would like to see more boobs, most people are just not evolved enough yet to handle that scenario!

The double standard that allows a man to jog down the street topless and hairy with boobs bigger than mine is sexist possessive bullshit. I don't know why America is so scared of female nipples.

Those who are uncomfortable for any reason can wear a shirt or top, but the law should not punish a woman if she desires to go topless. Breasts are first for feeding a baby and only secondarily for sexual stimulus. I know many woman who get excited over a mans awesome chest so why weren't the laws also for man. Seems like just another sexist law made by a man. Personally I think womens breasts are one of the most beautiful parts of their anatomy.

Well, maybe not a huge deal in EVERY case, but then again....

Is there actually a man here that would be against setting the puppies free?

Boob implants are only good if a woman does it for herself NOT ANY MAN!!!!!!Bras are very good for limiting gravities effect but from what Ive been told can be VERY UNCOMFORTABLE the large shoulder groves on a large breasted woman is case and point for that IT IS ABOUT WHAT YOUR COMFORTABLE WITH If the rest of the world doesnt like it they can kiss my naked butt

Nice example! This visual really highlights the absurdity of these "indecency" laws.

Perhaps I'm not totally up on the feminist notions, but do you believe the laws of toplessness derive from men oppressing women, disallowing women from being comfortable with their own bodies? If it were up to me, I would let homology speak for itself, and if men's chests can be bared, then so should womens'.

I like it when people use that term,'for herself,' but does a woman really have a ginormous implant for herself, or to fit into some stereotyped standard of beauty? I can understand a breast lift, because large breasts - as you mention - can create health issues with back and shoulder pain, but boobs, like vaginas are all different, and boob implants tend to make boobs resemble a standard. I personally don't think that Pamela Anderson-Lee needs huge implants to be attractive, neither does Dolly Parton. They'd still be attractive without the boobs.

I don't buy into that 'for herself' notion because a lot of women don't inflate their boobs to ridiculous sizes for themselves, they do it for other reasons such as sexual attractiveness, and that's cool too - if they're open and admit to that, instead of using the tired 'it's for myself', it's for making an impression on the opposite gender, or gaining some sort of attention, which is fine, but c'mon we're not all born yesterday. My issue with that relates to why women feel they have to subject themselves to implants - that have to be replaced over time anyway (as they're not permanent)- and scalpels in order to feel like they belong.

old friend of ours, beautiful girl,(i mean fucking stunning) always had a problem witht he size of her breasts, which were perfectly shaped a-cups. i told her they were beautiful, my wife told her, her husband told her, but she was never happy with them. she was curvy aside from the smallness of her breasts and always wanted something bigger. she got them a year or two ago, and as far as i know hasn't been happier. neither has her husband. now he is a lover of more endowed women, and sure, it's possible she wanted bigger to please him. but i really don't think that's the case. for her it was an esteem issue- she was unhappy with the shape of her body, breasts in particular.

Interestingly, a few year back there was a court case in ontario fighting for a woman's right to go topless. The law was passed making it legal to do so. For a short time there were breasts everywhere, but after the fervor died down it was business as usual with ladies covering up their assets.

I definitely need to take a trip to ontario this summer. Nothing sounds better then topless shopping, going to the amusement park topless, having an ice cream n the park sans top....
