    Topless women win big as Colorado city drops ban

    Fort Collins, Colorado has decided it's not worth the money to fight for its ordinance banning women from appearing topless in public.

    It's a victory for "Free the Nipple," a global movement seeking equal treatment for women.

    In February, when it was cold enough that few would want to go topless in the community north of Denver, the Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals upheld a federal judge's conclusion that the law amounted to unconstitutional discrimination. It was based on "negative stereotypes depicting women's breasts, but not men's breasts, as sex objects," the court concluded.

    Seems more like men win big in this scenario.

    I was worried support for this measure would sag over time.

    Good call. Get the Christian patriarchy out of the legal system. Requiring women to cover their breasts is the same as requiring them to cover their legs or faces.

    It’s literally in the OP.

    #freethenipple
    Many Trump supporters have lots of problems, and those deplorables are bringing those problems to us. They’re racists. They’re misogynists. They’re islamophobic. They're xenophobes and homophobes. And some, I assume, are good people.
