This activist thinks women have the right to bare more than just arms.
I want people to know . . . its legal for a woman to be topless, Johnston said.
Moira Johnston, 29, drew a lot of attention during a topless protest yesterday in Union Square Park and thats exactly what the dancer wants.

Only if they look good! No visual pollution allowed!
Exposing her brains, Eh?
Only if they look good! No visual pollution allowed!
Now, having said that, I will also observe that stupid people tend to experience more unfortunate events than smart people. Just sayin'.
I agree with this 'right' but suggest we pass a law that guys over 30 should not wear Speedos.
Any woman should be able to walk down any street in America completely naked in perfect safety.
That being said, it’s a bad idea to dangle raw meat in front of predators...
Stupid choices in what a person wears when they leave the house does not make anyone “fair game”.
In a “perfect world,” every person would be safe from all forms of crime including robbery, rape and murder.
Unfortunately, we don’t live in a “perfect world.”
I looked on google, things are still within spec but heading south real fast.
I guess she just wants men and women to be able to air their differences.
Seen one, you’ve seen them both.
Nonsense. "Community" is just that. You give up a little something and I give up a little something. If a woman gives up all sense of modesty, men are not obligated to give up their biological imperatives.
Quid pro quo.
That was too easy. All I had to do was type in her name and click “search”. She should keep her clothes on...and not even go bra-less.
I think there’s a little more to it than that. Otherwise there would be no law against men going around totally nude.
A few years back a naked woman was picked up by a couple of guys who then raped her.
Why was she naked?
She had just escaped from another rapist.
By your reasoning, the second two rapists were fully justified weren’t they?
You better look again. I think you were looking at the author, not the dancer. The shot from the back that is in the article looks pretty good to me!
Time to cover the boobs. Can’t show anymore than they have over the years. Why do people who protest think showing their boobs is effective? All people do is take photos and laugh. Guess you have to be that INSECURE that you could actually walk around like that. It’s so been done...
My searches only return 2 topless photos and both are of the same woman...and not impressive.
No. The woman was naked for reasons beyond her control. Hers was not a lack of modesty, but simple physical exigency. However, any woman who wantonly parades about naked -- in violation of every acceptable norm of civilization -- can lay no claim to the protections of civilization, nor can she fairly expect men to subdue instincts she herself refuses to subdue.
There ARE laws against men going around totally nude. And for (arguably) the same reasons.
You are going to get flamed pretty bad unless you start delineating the degrees of the offenses. Going topless is not a crime as serious as rape. But even if it was, the rape would still require punishment. If you murder a jaywalker with your car you do not get a pass.
Perhaps he is trying to prepare us for Sharia?
I get his point. We are not animals but we do have some animal instincts. We all expect each other to keep our inner animal under control. Proper dress codes are part of it.
Put another way...I wouldn’t walk around a bad part of town with hundred dollar bills poking out of the top of my back pocket. And pretty girls should be careful what kind of men see their goodies.
In principle, either activity should be safe.
In practice, don’t tease the animals...
I like that!
I think you have cause and effect confused. The man isn't a rapist until he rapes her. And if he -- like most men -- would inquire into why a woman was roaming the street naked, I think one could reasonably expect that a civilized human being would respond to a woman in need not by raping her but by offering her safety. On the other hand, a woman who was strutting around in public in her union suit has no moral high ground from which to accuse men of presumption, or to condemn them for wanton acts.
A woman parading around in public should not necessarily be a candidate for rape, nor should such a rape be considered innocuous. But her nudity certainly creates an extenuating circumstance, and could even preclude a conviction. On the other hand, it is clearly a violation of decency for her to appear naked.
And to equate common modesty with sharia is not only an ad absurdum argument, it is a childish oversimplification.
But you and Sharia seem agree that rape is the woman’s fault.
I said that a woman who was parading around town wantonly naked did not deserve civilization's protection. That's hardly the same as saying she deserves to be raped or that her rape is her fault. It certainly is a far cry from endorsing sharia.
But if helps you to reduce the argument to that logical absurdity, feel free.
how did you find that pic? I couldn’t find it.
Most of us agree with you up to 99%.
Its that last 1% you are losing us. Almost all women deserve our protection. Some may not deserve our empathy though.
I would do my best to protect a naked whore in a den of disgusting booger eating goat humping perverts. I would not risk my life too awfully much on her behalf. I would risk quite a bit more to save my sister from such a fate(or all of my life) I would risk a lot to save my neighbors pretty young teenage daughter from such a fate. But I would make an effort for almost any woman in that instance.
afterwards whether I was successful or not I would want justice and i would want those booger eating goat humping animals put to death.
There is a difference between what I am saying and what you are saying.
This is my opinion.

And her 'charms' are quite deflated for her young age.
Of course, I wouldn't be Laz if I didn't say I'd hit it.
But I just want some sex.
But then again, I'm Batman.
I must have looked farther down the GI page than you did...
yeah, and I hope you did not use for your defense “ he was a jaywalker so I mowed him down cuz he deserved it for being in the road”.
