First of all, I would like to know if you were there, I was, in fact I was one of the topless women. Second, I would like to clear up a couple details. There were actually four of us topless. Only one of the girls got up to hula hoop while the rest of us laid there enjoying the sun and the girl hooping does not have breasts big enough to bounce.
I was one of the two women that was approached by the police officers and there was no pointing of any kind at any men from either of us . I simply laughed and the other woman said "ok" when the police officer told us there were some complaints.
Now, for my side of the story.
I was getting ready to leave the market because I was hot and wanted to go to hang out in my neighbors backyard topless, like I do on a regular basis, when I saw some friends. I went over to say hello, one of the girls was topless, just laying there, I looked around and only saw friends, most of whom have seen my bare chest, and I took my shirt off. It was hot, all the men had their shirts off, why not me? When I got up to leave the market and walked out of the comfort bubble of my friends is when I realized I was "nude"
It is interesting to me that I am a twenty first century female, living in the United Stated, land of the free, home of the brave...... Yet I am not free to be topless in public without being discriminated against, possibly arrested and women are not brave enough to recognize that we are being oppressed. Our forefathers fought for our freedom, women included. Women's breasts are the life force for all. They are sacred, beautiful, and should be celebrated, not bound down by judgment. Anyone who says otherwise is sexist.
I am ready for the day when a woman's body is not associated with just sex.
