I'm topless, why aren't you ?

Mon Sep 19,

MORAVIA, N.Y. - Four women arrested after going topless on a downtown street last month say they didn't break any laws and want the charges against them dropped.

The women, each charged with exposure, are to appear Tuesday night in village court. If convicted of the violation they each face 15 days in jail and/or a $250 fine.

Charles Marangola, the attorney representing the women, said he's filed a motion to dismiss the case, maintaining that a 1992 state Court of Appeals decision allows women to go topless anywhere a man can.

"This thing should be dismissed outright," he said. "But if it isn't and these young ladies are found guilty at a trial ... if we have to go to the Court of Appeals, we will."

But Cayuga County Assistant District Attorney Charles Thomas said his office isn't convinced that the 1992 ruling gives blanket permission for women to go topless. Thomas said that in addition to the nudity violation, he'll argue that the women interfered with commerce.

The four women – Carol Clarke, 54, and Barbara Crumb, 61, both of Branchport; Claudia Kellersch, 40, of La Jolla, Calif.; and Madeleine McPherson, 40, of Rochester – were arrested Aug. 11 outside a grocery store in this village of 1,600 just south of Owasco Lake, 40 miles southwest of Syracuse.

So tell me whats your issue on this ? Should the ladies be able to go topless if they are comfortable because the guys can ? Or should there be respect and put a shirt on ?

I work graveyards in a store, and to see a guy come in with no shoes or shirt (or socks for that matter) I'm a complete jerk, I tell them go back in your car-get that shirt thats on the passenger seat, and put it on ! I do live in Arizona, where its 1:30 in the morning with 92* outside, but still ! (actually its getting a little more nippy out now at that hour these past few days)

ladies are you comfortable with what these ladies did, can you see yourself walking down mainstreet ? or should they be arrested, give me your viewpoint from the ladies perspective or the judges.

guys, i already know your answers, so it better be good

I personally think that if men can go topless then women should be able to as well. What is good for the gander is good for the goose in this case. But I am sure that most of society is going to disagree with me. A woman's breast is always going be viewed as more of a sexual object than a man's so until the day comes when men and women are viewed as equal sex objects, this will never change. So I am sure to be outnumbered here. Then again, my view points tend to get a little hypocritical. I don't think that women should walk around with hairy legs and armpits. I think that we should have the ability to go topless if we choose but we should still be clean shaven. I guess I am a little bit of a backward liberal.

I agree with the "good for the goose is good for the gander" as Sweet said. While i wouldn't be fond of seeing women wandering around topless, i feel the same about men. I get embarressed and feel it's inappropriate. As for your work? I think most businesses now have a sign up saying "No shirt, no shoes, no service". So it shouldn't come as a shock to anybody if they're told to go put clothes on.

As for the women in this case though? I'm curious why they chose to do so. Was it just because, or did they want to make a statement, and maybe even challenge the laws? A town of 1600 just seems a little too small to risk though.

I don't have a problem with women going topless anytime they want. It wasn't too long ago that women who wore thong bakini bottoms got arrested in Florida for exposure. No we see them everywhere. In Europe the television shows have topless women all of the time. I do agree that if a woman is required to wear a shirt then a man should too. I don't go without tops because I am too busty to feel comfortable but other than that? You bet!! I don't like men going into stores without shirts but then I don't want any person going into a store without shoes either.

Fair is fair, the USA is the last place on the planet that frowns on boobs. It doesn't say they HAVE to go topless, but they do deserve the right should they choose to do so. Fair is fair. I just don't get it? Will the sight of a bare boob corrupt and ruin children? Well, on second thought...it would cause me to crash my car if I was driving. Hmm...look at the street or boobies? Hmm...no brainer.

I honestly don't think this will ever[/] change....unless we all get injected with syrum that will corrupt our minds of thinking ! Sorry watched to much of the "Twilight Zone" Marathon

would it be wrong to say to shave those armpits and legs too , or is that just a typical guy thought....or is that another blog entry *Scratches chin in thought*

Network_Minx - Ha ! Europe, totally forgot about that !

yet as others explained above, If a woman has to wear a shirt in the store, then so does a man....so tell me, why do people walk in stores with no shirts or shoes, do they proclaim themselves sexy or something ?

we've all seen so much of women's boobs all over billboards etc. i don't see why it is a big deal for women to do it in life???? i wouldn't personally do it, cos i'm quite shy, but i don't see why a woman shouldn't!

FreeLove999 you are so beyond correct on this issue with the buildboards ! The media has taken the women of today's society and really twisted it for their benifit for their market, yet's its been done some much, its almost beyond comfortable when passing.

I'm not one who takes off my shirt to the public (*Cough* you have to be in my Network to reveal the tease yet to be in the Network-you have to go a long ways)

When I worked in the shipyards in Southern CA, it was always HOT and the men would be working without shirts constantly. Being 1 of VERY FEW women in the entire company (let alone on the ship), I was not even allowed to wear a tank top...too distracting!

HMMMMMMMMMMMM.................just one of many instances of inequality I've dealt with.

Yagotta get it soft and wet so we can kick/stick it

yagottalikit so glad you could come this way, i always appreciate your company.

to distracting ? I take it the boss was a man ? Im sure it was very distracting to see all these hot men and those few uglies work with no shirt on, and after a short while became very[i/] annoying. How long did you work this crew ?

The kids in this small town only saw a little more than they would at the beach. The difference is a small piece of material that covers the nipples while at the beach.

At their age, 61, 54, 40 and 40, if they had the balls (ahem) to go topless they should be commended. After all it's okay for a man who is over weight and has man boobs and a belly that flows over his belt to go shirtless, why not these ladies?

You should see how the young high school girls dress in this small town that is predominantly LDS. This is the very reason the school I teach for has a dress code, in which, we fully enforce.

Understand that 98% of my neighbors in my little cul-de-sac are gay ... so I spend a lot of time at home either nude or topless ... suffice it to say that I recently made the mistake of taking out the rubbish, completely oblivious to the fact that I forgot to put a top on ... as luck would have it, I just happened to find the 1% of the non-gay population in my neighborhood that would actually notice ... and not approve ! Hence, a visit from the local police department ... and the only time in my adult life I have ever been asked to "put your clothes back on, please" ... !

*I raise my glass of pepsi and shout "I toast to that !"

On your second note Duststorm, i hear you 100% , working graveyards sometimes i have to look the other direction while giving change back, or else i might get charged for stareing at a minor *shivers at the thought*

papyrina This is so true, the boobs are yours why expose them and make TDA crash his car ? There is a fine line between what and where to do things, its like, why would you go topless at the mall ? doesnt make sense does it....exactly my point.

Huntress7878 - that straight guy was totally rude and impolite ! What was he doing looking in your window anyways ...did you as the officer that ? If he was a married man, would he call the cops and say, you better come by very quickly-my wife is having sex with me-and she is naked !
