Colorado Law Allows Women To Go Topless
A federal judge has ruled that a Colorado city can NOT enforce the ban on women going topless.
That means, I think, that the women of Fort Collins, CO can walk around topless in public? If that is the case, how long before EVERY Colorado city passes this? Would Grand Junction women vote for this? Not to be funny, but I KNOW that the majority of Grand Junction men would probably vote for this.
This all started when Brittiany Hoagland, Samantha Six and an organization named 'Free the Nipple' took their fight to the streets of Fort Collins. The women gathered on the corners Mulberry Street and College Avenue asking if men can go topless, why can't women? They said the previous ban goes against the Equal Protection Clause of the Constitution.
FOX31 in Denver has more details on this story, but basically, Fort Collin women are free to walk around sans shirt and bra. Well, technically, the ruling means that police and the city can not enforce the ban on being topless.
Federal Judge R. Brooke Jackson is responsible for the new policy.
I can definitely see both sides of this issue. As a guy, my first reaction was YES, but is that the correct position to take? I'm all for equal rights and those types of arguments, but letting women walk around topless the answer?
