Women March Topless in Portland Without Incident (Upset That Men Looked At Them)
Maine Sunday Telegram ^ | 4/3/2010 | Maine Sunday Telegram

Posted on 04/04/2010 8:47:59 AM PDT by Dallas59

PORTLAND – About two dozen women marched topless from Longfellow Square to Tommy's Park this afternoon in an effort to erase what they see as a double standard on male and female nudity. click image to enlarge

A group of women and men who had shed their tops march down a Congress Street sidewalk from Longfellow Square to Tommy's Park. They were promoting the freedom of women to be topless in public. The group attracted many amateur and professional photographers.



The women, preceded and followed by several hundred boisterous and mostly male onlookers, many of them carrying cameras, stayed on the sidewalk because they hadn't obtained a demonstration permit to walk in the street. About a thousand people gathered as the march passed through Monument Square, a mix of demonstrators, supporters, onlookers and those just out enjoying a warm and sunny early-spring day.

After the marchers reached Tommy's Park in the Old Port, some turned around and walked back to Longfellow Square, but most stayed and mingled in the park. Some happily posed for pictures.

Without having seen the photos, can I say that those protestors marching topless are those who physiques indicate they definitely should NOT be topless in public??

These are crazy liberal women. A weird variant on Islam. “We want to walk around topless, but we will have you beheaded for looking at us!!!”

Obama has emboldened the crazies and those that want freedom for themselves, but freedoms taken away from everyone else.

“PORTLAND – About two dozen women marched topless from Longfellow Square to Tommy’s Park this afternoon in an effort to erase what they see as a double standard on male and female nudity.”

I’m gonna go out on a limb and suggest that I probably wouldn’t want to see any of these particular women topless.

Call it a feeling.

That's the general rule...the people who participate in these types of public nudity events are most often people that should remain fully clothed at all times. The people that even Stevie Wonder would tell 'Hey, cover it up, okay?'

“Ty McDowell, who organized the march, said she was “enraged” by the turnout of men attracted to the demonstration. The purpose, she said, was for society to have the same reaction to a woman walking around topless as it does to men without shirts on.”

This woman is stupid enough to be a top Democrat.

"Ty McDowell, who organized the march, said she was "enraged" by the turnout of men attracted to the demonstration."

And she'd have been equally (or perhaps even more) enraged/offended if no one came out to have a peek. Fact is, she and her fellow feminazis can't ever be anything other than enraged.

You are obviously unfamilar with the seasons in New England. Yesterday was the first warm, sunny day of the year. It would not be terribly unusual to have snow in Portland on the third of April.

Those most likely to participate in this kind of protest are least likely to look good doing so - thus, no pictures needed.

Reminds me of an old Mainer joke,

What’s the difference between a moose and a dyke in Maine?

A flannel shirt.

But now, idk....

We’d be better off asking men to keep their shirts ON. I’ve seen some man boobs that are Wince Factor 8.

The Northwest just shrugs this stuff off as no big deal. Case in point the group of naked bikers that have become a normal participant in one of Seattle seasonal parades.

...and there is at least one male, or something that could pass as a male, standing on the side walk, facing the other topless walkers.

So she'll be more aggressive in turning away male oglers next time....hmmmm.

From the fact that liberal women are generally plain and ugly and from the looks of their pasty backs, I doubt if many of the oglers would even think of coming back for another look at their fronts.

Maine voted 58% for Obama, I'd be surprised if it wasn't 100% in Portland.

That's pretty much all you need to know.
