    shocked2 Women pushing equal-opportunity toplessness

    By The Associated Press

    PORTLAND, Maine - About two dozen women drew a crowd of onlookers when they shed their shirts and marched downtown in Maine's largest city to promote what they call equal-opportunity public toplessness.

    Organizer Ty MacDowell said the point of Saturday's march in Portland was that a topless woman out in public shouldn't attract any more attention than a man who walks around without a shirt.

    The Portland Press Herald reports that by the end of the march, more than 500 people had amassed - a mix of marchers, young men snapping photos, oglers and people just out enjoying a sunny, warm day.

    It's not illegal for a woman to be topless in public in Maine, and police said there were no incidents or arrests.

    Can you imagine the great giants of REAL feminism parading around with no shirts on? That's not what feminism is supposed to be about.

    So says this proud member of Feminists for Life.

    There really is no sound or logical reason why women shouldn't be allowed to be topless just as men are. If a woman is comfortable with that, more power to her. However, it is considered indecent exposure, and why? Because men have turned the female breast into a sex object, even though their original intended purpose is to provide nourishment. I think it's far too easy to cast this type of an issue aside as some "annoying feminist" issue. It's nothing more than a cop out. I'd honestly love to see a logical argument from someone as to why a nude female breast is somehow inherently indecent while a nude male breast is a-ok. It can't be simply due to size because there are plenty of obese males out there who are bordering on a D cup.

    A lot of men should be forced to keep their shirt on, too.
