Maryland Blogger: Bare breasts bouncing in the breeze in Times Square

Bare breasts bouncing in the breeze in Times Square

 

Topless women are some of the latest tourist attractions in Times Square and they appear to be on the right side of the law. Long ago, the state’s highest court ruled that prohibiting women, but not men, from baring their chests in public amounted to discrimination on the basis of sex.

The following link will take you to an interesting article, by Catherine Rampell, which appears in today’s issue of The Washington Post.

New York City’s bizarre uproar over topless women

Are there some lessons to be learned by what is taking place in Times Square?

Roy,

When we were in NY early June of this year, we saw plenty of that at Times Square, and some of the women were nearly naked...Plenty of people were taking pictures, and some of the men happy to take pix of themselves and the woman sitting in their laps.

There will always be someone who will get offended (there are side streets where one can avoid the spectacle).  People just need to get over themselves, live and let live, and the pedestrian injury claim is downright silly.  A

Good afternoon Roy,

Might explain why so many are turning to the "Nudist Camp's"

Make yourself a great day.

For ten years I lived in NYC.....it was not unusual to see bare breasts on any given day.  Who cares.....it's skin!

Aloha Roy,

We are born naked, to make it a crime to just be ourselves is insanity. It's amazing how fearful the ignorant are of nudity, it's rather sad.

Well this should be a click bomb ;) I know this can controversial but it if more did it it would be normal and no one would have much of an issue with it over time.
