    Also, breastfeeding laws protect that right even when nudity is otherwise not allowed.

    Something that surprised me as a father in progressive NYC was how often people sighed ,made comments under their breath ECT ECT over nursing a child.

    There is a man who swims in the harbour outside of my apartment in Lanzarote completely naked. Sometimes he stands on the rocks, hands on his hips, and surveys the scenery. Maybe I should buy him a speedo.

    Hot or not?

    Unfortunately not.

    I have one that I wear under my wetsuit. Makes for good wetsuit underwear. Anything else bunches up too much.

    That means that I put the speedo on first, then my wetsuit. So I must endure the embarrassment of the speedo for a short period. I try to ignore the looks, but they do sting a bit...

    I used to swim competitively for a bit and play water polo. I associate Spedo briefs with racing/competition...so I think they look kind of out of place if you're just hanging out on the beach or poolside...I don't think they're a great fashion statement.

    I still lap swim sometimes, and I wear jammers for that. Even when I was racing and had an awesome sub 10% 16/17 year old body, I always felt awkward in my Spedo and would put my shorts on over when I was done with a race.

    The looks sting or the speedo?

    I believe speedos should not be frowned upon when worn at a place bathing suits are allowed.

    Still more acceptable to peeps than a woman going topless, at least in the U.S. The one won't get me arrested; the other will.
    It depends on the amount of body hair. If it looks like the hair is leaking out of the Speedo in all directions, it is not particularly appetizing.

    Wait, are we eating them now? Kinky.. and cannibalistic.



    In New York State a woman can legally be without a shirt anywhere a man can. Write your legislators.

    Without a shirt... or topless? Those are two different things for folks who don't wear bras.
    Naked on top. Free nips. Breasts bare.

    I just want the right to go topless like any man might be allowed to. If I have to see your bare chest, you should have to put up with mine. Breastfeeding or not.

    Really? You would? I wouldn’t, couldn’t!🙈 What about gravity? I’d rather go against it, doesn’t hurt and looks better, maybe... 😂 If you really want to go topless, start your own march to “free the nips” or come to Canada, there’s quite a few places where you’re free to tan to your hearts content, no more tan lines. Actually, that doesn’t sound too bad now that I think of it?🤔

    I want the option of choice as opposed to (like many other things) being told what I can and can't do with my body simply because it might offend someone, even though that's preposterous. They're boobs, it's not like I'm swinging a metaphorical penis everywhere and making lewd gestures with them. If men can show nipples, women should be offered that choice as well.

    Whether a person wants to utilize said choice, well... that would be up to them.

    Colorado, Oklahoma, & Kansas (and maybe a couple more states) just passed legislation that allows women to go topless in the same places that a man is allowed to go topless.

    Tell my homestate (MO) and here (MS) to get with the program, yo. Hooray for those other states, though.. kinda surprised about Oklahoma.. they get touted as being kinda.. uptight.
