A Colorado Federal judge has issued an injunction against an ordinance that bans women from bearing their breasts in public, saying the rule is probably unconstitutional.
“I find that the ordinance discriminates against women based on the generalized notion that, regardless of a woman’s intent, the exposure of her breasts in public (or even in her private home if view-able by the public) is necessarily a sexualized act,” Jackson wrote. “Thus, it perpetuates a stereotype engrained in our society that female breasts are primarily objects of sexual desire whereas male breasts are not.”
In his decision, Jackson ruled against the city’s claims that law maintained public order and protected children.
What a moron!
In Nov., 2015, Fort Collins enacted an ordinance that prohibited females 10 or older from exposing their breasts in public or on private property if that place can be viewed by someone on public property. This ordinance exempted women who were breastfeeding. Someone who violated the ordinance could be fined up to $2,650 or imprisoned for 180 days.
Free the Nipple, an association of Colorado residents who advocate for gender equality, its founder Brittiany Hoagland and member Samantha Six filed for a preliminary injunction on May 31, alleging that the public nudity ordinance was one of the most restrictive in the nation.
So now that ordinance has been overturned, and precedence has been set at the federal level allowing women to run around topless.
Insanity has reigned as we press on towards European socialism.
The Contrarian writes at DailyInsiderNews:
As we developed into complex beings, we found reason to cover ourselves – to protect ourselves from the weather.
But in this so-called modern era, morality and ethics have become a highly contested issue among academics, governments and society as a whole; some people are of the opinion that a person should be granted an unlimited right, including allowing nudity in public places.
For some, this argument is considered profane and injurious to the social fabric of modern society. In conservative societies such as Africa and the Muslim world, certain dresses are considered indecent. Wearing them can be considered offensive, and the culprit, mostly women, can face punishment. There is no room for the debate of nudity in such societies.
This sharply contrasts with the Western world. People in the West are permitted to wear what they like. In Europe, for example, there are selected places where nudity is allowed. There has been a significant surge in places such as beaches and hotels where people can take all their clothes off without the worry of repercussion.
In the United States though, the issue of sex and the body is not that lax. Some municipalities have their own laws on how people should cover their bodies in public. Although there has been rising pressure from activists to get rid of these laws, towns and cities officials are determined to protect them.
What makes America great is our value of sovereignty. From our sovereignty in the home, to our states, and to our nation, we have certain ideals that make us great.
Parents have the sovereignty to keep nudity from their children. They have the right for theri children to be in public, and not have to see the gentiles of the adults wandering around.
Nudists have PLENTY of places reserved if they just must wander around butt-naked. They do not have to do it at the grocery store or on the downtown streets.
Hopefully as this goes to higher courts, common sense will reign SUPREME! (SCOTUS pun intended!)
