I know my last post was, coincidentally, also about public nudity - but I just couldn't help myself when I came across this article on Drudge Report: A group of women in Portland, Maine marched topless down a main stretch in order to call attention to the "double standard" in society's attitude toward male and female nudity.
I have to say, I laughed out loud when I saw this. I laughed even harder when I read that the main organizer of the march, named Ty McDowell, was "enraged" when the march attracted several hundred oogly-eyed male onlookers. She said that the main purpose of the march was for society to have the same reaction to a woman walking down the street topless as it does to men doing so.
I hardly think this needs commentary, as it seems to speak for itself. But I just thought I'd share.
And If there is anyone out there who shares the opinion of Ty McDowell, please speak up. I'd be interested to hear your point of view on the topic or any insights you can contribute. Maybe you can help me (and perhaps others too) understand why the double standard in society's attitude towards nudity is something that we should be worried about.
