Well since I was born after the fall, I'd say that doesn't hold any significance for me except one more nail in the cross of excesses of this generation.

Yes, I know what a purist/puritan you are, my dear.

Open-mindedness/objectivity...that which makes the world go round.

I am not a Puritan. We come from different worlds. I am open minded. I respect your opinion, I just hope I don't see it in my lifetime.

Does anyone else find this a bit odd?
A man finds a woman's nipples exciting due to the fact that she is of the opposite sex. The average man does not have globes either, yet those (of the woman) are allowed to be seen in public. Strange.

So why didn't the Democrat monkeys change the law when they were in power during Obama's reign?

Fundamentally this is a case of Christianity "inventing sin" where the sin doesn't exist if it's not considered a sin.

Oh yeah! Very convincing, and never mind that the Muslims are the most repressive of all the people on Earth.

I'm sure people will run naked before much longer. I hope I can avoid seeing that without having to kick the bucket in order to avoid it.
I take it you've never been to a nudist place, eh?

Businesses instead of casual Friday, should have boobs out Friday (better yet, every day).
But, being an unabashed boob fan, I may be a little bias.

The vast majority of states actually have laws on the books making clear that women can't be arrested under state law solely for being topless in settings where it's OK for men. But many local ordinances ban the practice anyway. And there's plenty of grey area for police officers to make their own interpretations and make arrests for “public indecency” or “disorderly conduct.”
Sunbathing Topless: A Map of Varying Laws | Time.com

From the FCC it appears that the key to the prohibition against showing topless women is the word "titillate" because a woman's nipple is not a "sexual or excretory organ" and I believe that the claim that exposure is "indecent" for women but not for men could be reasonably challenged in a court because it's would violate anti-discrimination laws that prohibit discrimination based upon gender (sex).

Quote:
"What makes material indecent?

Indecent material contains sexual or excretory material that does not rise to the level of obscenity. For this reason, the courts have held that indecent material is protected by the First Amendment and cannot be banned entirely. It may, however, be restricted to avoid its broadcast during times of the day when there is a reasonable risk that children may be in the audience. The FCC has determined, with the approval of the courts, that there is a reasonable risk that children will be in the audience from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m., local time. Therefore, the FCC prohibits station licensees from broadcasting indecent material during that period.

Material is indecent if, in context, it depicts or describes sexual or excretory organs or activities in terms patently offensive as measured by contemporary community standards for the broadcast medium. In each case, the FCC must determine whether the material describes or depicts sexual or excretory organs or activities and, if so, whether the material is patently offensive.

In our assessment of whether material is patently offensive, context is critical. The FCC looks at three primary factors when analyzing broadcast material: (1) whether the description or depiction is explicit or graphic; (2) whether the material dwells on or repeats at length descriptions or depictions of sexual or excretory organs; and (3) whether the material appears to pander or is used to titillate or shock. No single factor is determinative. The FCC weighs and balances these factors because each case presents its own mix of these, and possibly other, factors.
https://www.fcc.gov/reports-research...-profanity-faq

They're using the criteria of "contemporary community standards" but is it acceptable if the contemporary community standards violate the law and the equal protection clause of the Constitution? If the contemporary community standards are inherently discriminatory then it's time to change the contemporary community standards.

Based upon the corruption, brutality, inhumanity, immorality, dishonesty, and incompetence of the Trump administration the White House is the dirtiest house in America and there's no known cleanser that with remove the stains of the Trump Administration.

The Muslim population in the United States represents less than 1% of the population and has no social, economic, or political power to impose discriminatory practices in the United States. Only those that control the social, economic, and political institutions have the power to discriminate and oppress.
