Skip to comments.Going bare-breasted, woman makes statement about women's bodies
Posted on 06/05/2013 9:33:09 AM PDT by Nachum
WANTED TO WRITE something snarky about Moira Johnston because what she's doing kind of begs for snarkiness.
But after hanging with her in Rittenhouse Square - where her bare breasts caught the morning sun, elicited picture-taking and drew a blasting honk from a Roadway Express truck - Johnston won me over to her cause.
Which is this: Women should be allowed to go topless anywhere that men are allowed to.
Maybe it was the flowered pasties that covered Johnston's nipples. Or the glorious breeze. Or the guy who grinned at Johnston's chest and said, "God bless ya, babe!"
Mostly, though, it was Johnston's demeanor that made her exposed boobs seem like no big deal.
She wore paisley-patterned harem pants and flats, carried a big old shoulder bag and yoga mat and had the teeniest bit of pudge on her hips. With her no-fuss hair and big sunglasses, she came across as the cute girl next door, not the aggressive sexual tease that naysayers presume her toplessness telegraphs.

You can vote on this. No. Really.
And no, I will not take the grin off my face.
If I ever saw something like that I hope I’d have the presence of mind to say something like “Good God...put them away...you’ll scare the children and the livestock”.
Sometimes, less is more.
Boy, I sure am glad that she doesn’t feel like objectifying her body.
You can see her frontal pics using google image search. Meh. Thirty year old former stripper, whose breasts are starting to droop.
“...Women should be allowed to go topless anywhere that men are allowed to...”
And gosh darnit, they should be allowed to pee standing up!
This antic was done in the 70’s, and it soon blew over...
She had better be a good dancer because the rest of her assets are blah...
Good for her; all women should go around bare-breasted.
In fact, all women should wear only g-strings at all times. It would significantly improve the planet.
How long until she is sexually assaulted?
Only a full blow lesbian (with mental issues, but I repeat myself) do this.
They can already do that... but I'd recommend taking off their socks and shoes first. ;)
You Freepers realize that this means curtains for the former Pervert-in-Chief ... who is certain to suffer cardiac arrest from high blood pressure caused by overexposure to female flesh
She should have taken up this cause 10 years ago before pancake syndrome set in.
Well, why do men get to go shirtless and we women have to cover up?
It’s not like I want to anyway, but guys, it not erotic for us to look your boobs, especially when they outsize ours....most of the time it’s just gross.
So, every one cover up, how about that!
That's really the cause here. These liberals think they're doing something auspicious for a cause, when in reality, a majority of society is laughing at them.
Besides, can you imagine what would happen if this was permitted around the world? You'd have murders of women in middle Eastern countries on a daily basis for violating Sharia.
well-in theory—but imagine your scenario at WalMart around the 1st and 15th of the month when all the welfare queens go shopping...—or if it becomes a way for Progressive/Liberal women to express themselves—think Napolitano, RosieO...be careful what you wish for! ;)
Yes, “The Streak (’74)” by Ray Stevens.
Because we have no wish to go around slipping in the drool that our going topless would produce?
Actually it is because women's breast are considered a secondary sexual characteristic where a man's chest is just a chest.
And I will agree that most of us should cover up.
They already can, in the Shower.
A little titter went through the audience ....
Remember the first radio news report from back then about a new fad called streaking. Talked about an event which was called the “Winning Streak.” Report ended with the item that if there was any type of crowd watching the first two woman streakers, the fad would have ended there.
With a little bit of research, I’ve determined that she is not guilty. I’ve considered her two well formed, er points, and believe she may be right.
Culturally, and speaking on behalf of the male portion of the human species, women are more beautiful than men. Men are sexually aroused by visual stimulation of said beautiful women. Women are less aroused by visual stimulation and more aroused by emotional, social and mental stimulation. Women often do not appreciate the unwanted ogling of strange men while scantily and/or sensually dressed (this confuses men btw).
Society has evolved culturally to accommodate the unwanted spontaneity of sexual arousal and attention by hiding the breasts of women by law. This seems to have, to some degree, improved the situation for both sexes.
If you would like to suggest that men stop being aroused by bare chested women and/or pretend they don’t notice, you should also suggest that women not be so emotional and be more logical.
The sexes may be created equal but they are certainly different.
There’s good and bad in anything; on balance, I’d like to see ‘em all in g-strings.
But then, I’m a (very) Dirty Old Man.
The entire Middle East just exploded.
Nothing says “Take Me Seriously!” for a woman quite like baring your breasts.
You have come a long way, baby.
Here's an idea to make it 100% "equal":
Men with breasts like women's should be required to cover up in public. Not doing so would be considered obscene.
Women with breasts like men's shouldn't be required to cover up, but then, who would even notice?
I Don't know about that. Remember: what has been seen, cannot be unseen.
She’s in Philly, she’ll get attacked at some point.
Another liberal dream, no rules or protocols for anyone or anything. Alle ist gut.
I’m an old Old Fart - I’ve already seen it all. Many times.
Why is it with liberals that sex is on their minds so much they do stupid crap like this? Are they really so low IQ that their primal instincts for sex overcomes their higher level thinking to control themselves? Just look at all the pedophile female teachers out there.
Sometimes it occurs to me, more often lately, that many women are bat #### nuts.
Good idea. I just ordered my first set of man pasties from Amazon.com. They have little propellers on them which should help keep me cool if I move fast enough.
I'll wear them when mowing on hot days this summer.
If hot women, instead to ugly, liberal, flower children, suffering from years of sag from no bras, would protest, I suspect public support would... umm grow- sort of speak....
So refreshing to see a woman without inked up skin!
“You’d have murders of women in middle Eastern countries on a daily basis for violating Sharia.”
And that would be different how....?
Possibly. I guess no one taught her that social conventions exist for a reason.
Agreed. Not guilty. In fact, welcome to protest at my backyard pool anytime.
There is nothing new under the sun. These kind of “protests” has been done since at least the 1970’s. She is just another attention you know what.
