"The brave women of Fort Collins, who for years have been struggling against the cruel oppression of breasts imprisoned in clothing, were cheered when last February U.S. District Judge R. Brooke Jackson agreed with them. The law, said the judge, is based on gender discrimination, and violates the Fourteenth Amendment’s guarantee of “the equal protection of the laws.”

Be careful what you wish for...remember, once seen, something cannot been unseen.

People who tend to get naked in public are usually those who you wish wouldn't.

I can imagine someone wearing tassels, and boisterous males wanting to play flag football.

You do realize that I have no desire to see most men topless. Why do you think you should get to choose who you see? I don’t.

Agreed! Give this man a raise!

I don't think you are going to really appreciate this decision until you see the women that want to go topless. These are man haters remember. They want to be seen for the beauty of their souls not their bodies. But how best to show off their soul than to show off their breasts. They are out to change the perception of beauty so that ugly women can be loved by people too. (but not men because, who needs useless men anyway?)

I think that even this judge would draw a line between what is “public” and courtroom decorum.

I have no desire to see any men, or most women bottomless. Why do you think you should get to choose who you see? I don’t.

I know. Its just that one of my pet peeves is the almost constant misuse of the word “gender”.

Gender relates to language - words have a gender - masculine, feminine or neuter.

Sex relates to biology - Mammals have a sex - male or female.

the judge meant to say that the law is based on sex discrimination

I'm not sure when it began but "gender" has been substituted for "sex" for a long time so much so that it is now in the dictionary. I suspect "gender" got its start when HR departments and others reviewing applications got tired of reading "twice a week" next to "sex".

We need a law that says you cannot go out in public with your face covered.
