10th Circuit Court of Appeals: Free the nipple

A ruling out of the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals in Denver has set a precedent that is sure to result in a lot of pearl-grabbing while screaming, “Won’t somebody please think of the children.”

It’s now legal for women to go topless in Oklahoma, Wyoming, Utah, Colorado, Kansas and New Mexico — the states under the jurisdiction of the 10th Circuit Court — after the city of Fort Collins has decided it won’t appeal the lower court’s decision to end the prohibition of public exposure of breasts by women and girls over 10 years old to the U.S. Supreme Court, according to NBC News.

The decision is a victory for Free the Nipple, an international group pushing for women’s equality. The 10th Circuit Court made its decision based on “negative stereotypes depicting women’s breasts, but not men’s breasts, as sex objects.”

The city of Fort Collins argued that it didn’t want women “parading in front of elementary schools or swimming topless in the public pool,” which seems like the kind of thing that would only happen out of protest if they didn’t change the law. Denver and Boulder allow female toplessness and have had no such cases, according to NBC.

1. Honestly, I don't care, but personally, waaay short of burkha territory,

MORE clothes are likely better, not only for ME (but probably most people)

Just sayin... Why feed the mosquitoes (and the creep in the bushes)?

2. Nudity does not hurt children. What hurts them is the adult reaction to nudity when the children

are involved.

Modesty is a learned experience just as racism is. It is taught by adults to children and strictly enforced so that when a child becomes conflicted by experience that is contrary to the enforced code of modesty along with adult body shaming they are harmed.

Here is a good example of what I am saying.

(for the record I married into a nudist family and was a nudist when we met)

8. A large vocabulary or one of the joys of life.

At least, for some of us.

7. My step-daughter was elected to the Fort Collins city council this past April.

She hasn’t said word one about this.
