    What is topfreedom?
    Topfreedom - or Topfree Equality - movement believes that women should be allowed to go topfree in any public place where men are allowed to remove their shirts, without threat of harassment, arrest, or other legal, or political deterrent.

    The term 'topfree' is used instead of 'topless' because the latter has sexual connotations. Topfreedom is not a sexual movement but an equal rights issue - actually going topfree de-emphasizes the sexuality of the female
    breasts.

    Our basic claim

    The Topfree Equal Rights Association - Our basic claim

    http://www.topfree.ca/general.html
    Our basic claim is that women deserve equal rights. We do not suggest that women or men should go about with bare breasts. That is every individual's decision. We do believe that since men may choose to do so in many situations, women must also be able to at least in the same situations. Without penalty of any kind.

    Women pay severely for North America's leering punishment of their breasts. Many find themselves the object of unwanted and unwarranted attention from men in positions of power over them. Many have debilitating body image problems, hating the breasts on their own, unique bodies. Many undergo hazardous cosmetic surgery to conform to some non-existent standard. To please others, many wear bras that confine and hurt and may be harmful. Many are afraid to breastfeed, especially with others present.

    Why do many women want to let their breasts out of the prison our society has put them in? They want to be comfortable. They want the convenience. They want to further their well-being. They want ownership and control of their own breasts.

    They deserve equal treatment under the law.

    Breast taboo
    http://www.007b.com/breast_taboo.php
    In North America and in many other westernized countries woman's breasts are a taboo: they are supposed to be hidden. Exposing woman's breasts in public is considered shameful and inappropriate ("indecent exposure") even on beaches or while breastfeeding. In other words, breasts - or at least the nipple - are supposed to be covered at all times.

    Parents tend to teach their children the same way, and many times children don't see a single naturally nude breast (apart from their own) while growing up. It is totally possible that a child grows up in North America and never sees a baby breastfeeding!

    However, while exposing breasts in public is a 'no-no', children often see breasts (although never the nipples) displayed in a sexually provocative fashion on television, in print media and at magazines. Breasts are emphasized big time in the media and advertisements, who signal to our young people that breasts are a sexual object, and only beautiful when big and protruding

    MEN ARE NOT THE ONES DEMANDING THAT WOMEN SHOULD BE BARE BREASTED OR TOP-FREE. WOMEN THEMSELVES ARE SAYING THAT THEY SHOULD HAVE THE RIGHTS TO DO SO. IF YOU DO NOT WANT WOMEN TO HAVE THE RIGHTS TO BE TOP-FREE IN PUBLIC AND THEN MAYBE YOU HAVE A REAL SERIOUS PROBLEM. :teach:

    THE LAW IS NOT ASKING YOU TO TAKE IT OFF, BUT WOMEN THEMSELVES ARE SAYING THAT THEY HAVE THE GOD GIVING RIGHTS TO DO SO.

    The Fundamental Right of Women
    http://www.feministezine.com/feminist/toplessness004.html
    We were made naked, we were meant to be naked. We are certainly not meant to be wearing clothes or shoes or anything.

    So why do some people consider a little thing like walking around topless such a big deal?

    Men do it all the time. Nobody makes a fuss.

    What makes the breasts of women so special?

    Are some people just afraid of breasts?

    MysteryDoors - the topic can be beaten to death :lol: Fact remains, the only folks not sexually driven by women's breasts are societies that the West label as primitive. Our societies are driven by money and sex.

    Should a modern woman be able to walk around topless? sure! Can she? heck no... unless you first address the social (taboos and whatnot), the economic (sex sells), the very deep mindset's of the western world at large, forget it. It's like planting your flag on the moon before the shuttle even takes off ;) and women play a very large role in feeding that very mindset.

    The mindset is so warped (and this is deep rooted stuff) because we see images all the time of women exposing their breasts - and it's all ok if they are primitive folk on the plains of Africa, or the jungles of Brazil.. because we know, culturally, in that environment, that the boobs dont make the woman ;)

    give a women in the west the right to go topless. no problem. but that means we'll have to arrest every man (woman!) and likely children.. hahaha - who oggle at the darn things, because that is how we raise them to think.

    So in my book, unless one addresess the REAL issue that affect the cores sexuality of the western nations, keep the tops on. The jails couldnt cope ;) we arrest folk for far lesser charges.. smh.

    YES, OF COURSE THE WESTERN WORLD IS DRIVEN BY MONEY AND SEX AS YOU INDICATED THAT PROBABLY THE REASON WHY THEY ARE SENDING THIS MESSAGE TO THESE MALE CHAUVINISTS THAT THEY DON’T WANTS TO BE TREATED LIKE SEX OBJECTS.

    THEIR MINDSET IS WOMEN RIGHTS IN WHICH THEY ARE FIGHTING AGAINST THE WESTERN WORLD MALE AGGRESSION THAT HAS BEEN DISCRIMINATING WOMEN FOR THE LONGEST TIME. WHEN WOMEN AND MEN BECOME EQUALLY UNITED THEN THE MALE AGGRESSION AGAINST FEMALE WILL FADE OUT.

    JAIL! JAIL! JAIL! IF A MAN IS FOOLISH ENOUGH TO PUT HIS HAND ON A WOMAN BARE-BREAST WITHOUT HER CONSENT THEN THIS FOOL DESERVE TO GO TO JAIL.
