In watching the news coverage of the New York blackout today I noticed quite a few shirtless men walking about. It seem a strange sight right in the middle of NYC but I suppose they felt justified under the circumstances in being as comfortable as possible in the 90º heat. But somehow I doubt there were any women doing this despite the fact that the NY Supreme Court has specifically said it was legal for them to do so.

Why should women worry about being comfortable, eh? Afterall, they already have to endure PMS and childbirth, so they should just gut out the swealtering heat as well. Plus, think of the billions that the advertising and porno industry would lose if New York women started exposing their breasts. God forbid, it might spread to other parts of the country, and women would actually be publically allowed to shed their tops of without fear of legal or social retribution. We can't let that happen, can we?

A right not exercised is a right lost.

Yeah, youd think there would be 100's of women topfree without their precious air conditioning, I mean its bad that so much of the power went out but at least it teaches people what can happen when they depend too much on technology, maybe if they didnt have their precious air conditioners and buildings to run into maybe morw women would go topfree. Im sure alot of women do go topfree in new york its just sparingly but the point is they do and the ones that do should have the right to do so no matter how many there are, that isnt the point the point is that some women want to go topfree and they should have the right to.

Yes, and this is what's discouraging. It's like the women who stayed away from the polls even after they won the right to vote.

Most women I talk to don't like the idea of walking around topless or seeing others do the same.

They claim they have morals and don't want to degrade themselves and that it's gross.

Again you are assuming breasts are sex organs. They are not.

Just repeating what the majority thinks and wants. In this country the majority rules.

Majority rules? Tell that to Al Gore who got more votes than Bush! In any case, majority opinions change. The majority once thought segregation was OK. We are working to change what the majority thinks.

Those kind of people need to get a life and let people live their lives the way they want to, if those women dont wanna go without tops then fine by me but I wouldnt want them going around and telling other women what to do or not do with their bodies, I dont think anyone else's opinion should be the deciding factor in weither someone goes topfree or not, women should just go topfree and the other women should just suck it in and deal with it and shut their pie holes.
