Excuse me, but what’s the beef here (no pun intended)? Women want equal rights to bare their breasts in public because men can walk around without wearing a shirt? The point escapes me.
Let me get this straight: Nature endowed women with two breasts, primarily to provide milk to nurture their young. Any other “titillation” (again, pardon my pun), is beside the point.
For all intents and purposes, women already bare their breasts in public. They wear sheer blouses through which their brassieres are visible, sport halter tops or tank tops with no bra underneath and erect nipples plainly evident. Women wear barely-there bikini tops at the beach or swimming pool and openingly nurse infants in public. I could go on, but I think you get my drift.
I’m no prude, but women get away with flaunting it already. If they want to walk around in public with no tops on, I doubt many men (or some women) would complain. If you want to see boobs, buy an issue of Playboy or go to a topless bar.
I just think there are larger issues that deserve public demonstrations of support: a living wage for workers, affordable health and medical care, local jobs that are not driven by hospitals, tourism or real estate and reasonable rents for those not fortunate enough to be able to afford million-dollar homes in Asheville.
I don’t expect you to print this, but I had to get my 2 cents’ worth in.
Have a good day. And yes, I do think ladies are beautiful.
