Supreme Court won't consider topless bans

WASHINGTON The Supreme Court said Monday that it will not take up a challenge to a New Hampshire city ordinance banning women from appearing topless in public.

A group with the motto "Free The Nipple" argued that the law violates the Constitution by treating men and women differently.

The legal dispute began in 2016 when Ginger Pierro did her yoga exercises topless at a lakeside beach in Laconia, New Hampshire, and was arrested for violating the city ordinance banning public nudity. It banned, among other things, "the showing of the female breast with less than a fully opaque covering any part of the nipple."

1. Puritanism is a plague

We live in a society where the human body is considered dirty, but it's A OK to show violence of any and all types.

How we ended up thinking that women's nipples are somehow different than men's in appearance such that they must be hidden is beyond me.

2. To be properly gender inclusive I'm thinking a number of men should cover up.

Between man boobs, beer guts and plumber's cracks.

3. I agree with you guys

But we are fighting for the future of our country. Every other fight is less important.

5. I'm firmly in the "Let it all hang out" faction.

There were none of us born with clothes on our bodies. We're all naked under the clothes we wear.

Only a small portion of the population wants to be naked in public. Let them. I simply don't care. I am in control of my own eyes.

6. The ERA would easily take care of this

But the SC should have taken this on.
