The right to bare breasts

The right to bare breasts, article.
Far from preventing sexual assaults, the law against women’s toplessness is part of a way of thinking that is harmful to both men and women. If we take steps to change the law, our society’s attitudes will adjust and such a change in attitude will protect women far more effectively than a t-shirt ever could.

Sophie Kaner, the author, has a purty kool Q&A column.

And then "one" could just walk around like this and wear the T-shirt...when it got too cold and STILL be reminding people what "we're" about! :-D

@ TC[Girl] .....

It will never happen, because the
economy would tank when all the guys downed tools to ogle the northern hemispheres around them....

But that's why girls would rather have beauty than brains - because guys can see better than they can think.

TC, Trend Micro is at it again with this web site...
The website you wanted to see might transmit malicious software to your computer, or has done that before to someone else. It may also show signs of involvement in online scams or fraud.

That aside, I really enjoyed reading this article. And if I can assume that Sophie is a female, I find it doubly interesting.

Of course, I can always attempt to add some humor to it.. "If a man isn’t taught that his desires are uncontrollable, he won’t act as if they are."

You mean to say that, I have uncontrollable thoughts, because I was taught that they were. No wonder I like Chile so much and can't loose weight.. :-)

Ray "because guys can see better than they can think."

Please say that your mother didn't tell you that.

I wonder if it is SnipURL which is shitlisted?

@ Tommy:-

It wasn't my mother who told me that.
It was one of my other female acquaintances; maybe an ex-wife, or possibly Rocky, The Friendly Neighborhood Witch and Fortune Teller. Rocky had something to say about everything whether you asked or not, because that was her mission in life, and she was really dedicated to it.

Too late! The economy already "tanked" and methinks it had something to do w/"southern hemispheres" sittin' "fat and happy" at their INSIDE jobs "smoking cigars" and not noticing too much going on anywhere other than "around" them and...then, it was TOO LATE; a STAIN was left in "HIStory"! :-0

If "northern hemispheres" were allowed to "bare" themselves, in order to "perk up" the "interests" of "southern hemispheres" just "long enough" that they would be willing to GET OUTSIDE and help "bolster" our economy (by getting a real JOB!), perhaps things would be better, again! :-D (and, yes, that was a long-winded sentence! lol! :-)

hm...perhaps there might be a "rise"...in auto and liability insurance claims, though! :-/

"TC, Trend Micro is at it again with this web site..."

So...I'm doing a "happy dance" 'cuz I was not the "supplier" of that "shitlisted" (thanks, Eo! :-) uh...crud, Tommy! :-D

"And if I can assume that Sophie is a female, I find it doubly interesting."

ROFLMAO! PITY any dude running around w/a name like Sophie! LOL! That's just as bad as [and just for grins, I'm gonna use 'Snipurl' to see if Eo is right re: Trend Micro "Shitlisting" it! lol!] naming a dude 'Sue! :-D

And your "interesting" double entendre had me "doubled" over in laughter, Tommy...even though, I, "two," (LOL!) thought it was "doubly interesting" to note that it was..."one of the girls!" :-D I think that there are MANY of "us" out there that "feel" the same about this "HOT" issue! lol! But...I guess "girls" just have two go two NYC two be twoolly FREE! :-D

Ray, what's up with all the dots in your moniker?

Tommy said...

EO - "I wonder if it is SnipURL which is shitlisted?"

I think you have it...I tried going to www.snipurl.com and got the same type of message. By the way, what is snipurl.com suppose to be?

But aside from that, TC said "naming a dude 'Sue! :-D" Ahhh, A Boy Named Sue. A great song by the late great one...

Ray - Rocky "The Friendly Neighborhood Witch and Fortune Teller". That's good, a witch named Rocky and Boy named Sue :-)

EO - "what's up with all the dots in your moniker" Gee, I didn't know it had a name. Well, dang nab it all, I lurned something new here teday...there's another word for nickname...

SnipURL is one of those sites which is a service to shorten URLs to use in tweets or emails.
I've used it a lot. (And I get no warning.) It has a good feature: you can name your own short URL!

I'm all for it except everyone - female or male should have to pass a swimsuit contest before being certified to go shirtless in public.

Interesting article.

@ Eolake -

You asked:- "Ray, what's up with all the dots in your moniker?"

That's because Google's forced formatting wouldn't let me arrange the text beside my picture icon with only a three-letter word, but insisted on either moving it to a spot that looked like hell, or placing it where it seemed to me to be ridiculous. (Google's text formatting sucks big-time!)

So in an act of desperation, I said
to myself, "OK, Google - take this!" and I added enough dots to force the system to leave my name where I wanted it, on a line by itself, and not someplace that left anyone wondering what the hell it was for. And if Google didn't make it so frustrating to try to send them a coherent message I'd send them an email with about 12 pages of suggestions
on how NOT to format their style-sheets, or whatever they call those things that cause all the trouble with people who just want to have text lined up in orderly fashion line after line, without having to go back through it to fix
places where it jumped a line, or quit halfway along one for no readily apparent reason.

Whoever wrote the code for the formatting of these blogs and comment pages should have their gonads painted with turpentine just before being pointed out the door toward heavy traffic.

It looks far worse this way than it would if you'd just played ball. Your reasoning is laughable as always.
