Should women be able to go topless?

men can, so why can't women?

Yes

VS.

No

If men show their abs, I don't see why a woman shouldn't show boobs.

I mean, I think people have misunderstood ... boobs. Their not genitals, their not privates, they are just as private as men's nipples.

Lots of women in different tribes in Africa and such go around topless, I seriously don't see the problem with that.

the affect clothing on a woman has on many men is to wonder what is under it.there is nothing more titillatingly sexual than a "nipple slip".i can masturbate freely over a woman showing some nipple and some breast with just three or four buttons of her blouse undone.if the woman is completely topless i find her breasts oke but not tantalising.i certainly would not be aroused enough to masturbate over her full disclosure.breasts in there naked form come in all shapes and sizes and to any given man in my opinon most would not turn him on once it was the norm to go topless.in fact in general i think there would be a lot less sexual assault if women went totally nude because the element of sexualised dressing would be missing."fuckaware" is more appealing to a mans sexual appetite than the womans nude body itself in my opinion

Side: Yes

Maybe women should wear a burka ;)

Of course why not? I don't understand all this " Ooh I am shy of my body I don't want you to see in case you all laugh at the fact that it's different to yours" because in reality people don't! You go to a nudist beech you don't have people being pointed at and mocked, everyone's cool. Which is how it should be :L

There is nothing wrong with woman going topless. They should be allowed to go topless anytime.

Side: Yes

Since men can go topless in public, women are no different. What's good for the goose is good for the gander.

Most defiantly NO, and I don't think that any self respecting woman should want to go topless in public. Not because women shouldn't be proud of their body, whatever their body type, but precisely because they should. Women's breast hold so much magic and power, they can nourish a human, they can draw the attention of a roomful of men... watching the Super bowl. This is because each and every time a man sees a woman's breast for the first time (at least) he should be discombobulated just a bit. Myself, I have been with my girlfriend for 3 years and I have to restart any sentence I was in the middle of when I unsuspectedly find her topless. If women went around topless all the time, breast would eventually lose their magic. This would rob women of power and men of wonderment and joy.

I disagree, I think it would take a LOT of self respect and courage for a woman to walk around topless.

Most women these days are hateful towards their body, because of the ''perfect woman'' image the media has created.

If any woman can walk around topless, I would admire her greatly, and wish I had that kind of courage.

I am not speaking of day one of women being allowed to go topless, I agree initially a woman would show courage going topless. Especially because people are very judgmental of women's bodies. I am speaking more of after everyone is used to seeing topless women everywhere. I think there is something great about a woman choosing who she shares her body with, I think over saturation of bare breast would remove the closeness that should be intrinsic with two people sharing something with each other that they don't share with the world at large.

The "magic" women's breast hold is the same taboo cursing has to children. Because it's forbidden getting to do it (or in this case see it) is out of the norm and exciting. If Breasts were seen naturally and their wasn't so much stigma on them, the awe would be taken away, and they'd be another body part again.

Take drinking for example. Americans are not allowed to buy and consume alcohol on their own until 21. So when a party, or chance to drink before that age arises, people jump at the opportunity and they go proverbially nuts over it, often times drinking all they can find to the point of passing out, or dying. Meanwhile in France and other Euro countries, drinking a little bit of alcohol, such as wine with dinner, is so common place teenagers their wouldn't bat an eye at the idea of going to a party just to get 'wasted'.

All of this is reiterating that nothing is special it just depends on the value we give things. If we don't look so highly on breasts they wouldn't be such an unattainable, amazing thing, they'd be another body part like hair, nails, legs, or face etc.

This is my point exactly. I don't see why it is good to turn a woman's breast into just another body part like hair, nails, legs, or face etc. I think it is good to keep a little bit of mystery. Which is more enjoyable watching a magic show where you know step-by-step how each trick is done; or to watch a magic show where, yeah you have an idea of what is going, but how did he do that one bit?

Think of how boring the world would be if we knew all the answers to all the questions.

I thought you were a woman until you mentioned your girlfriend. Anyways, men would not be robbed of wonderment and joy if women went topless... we'd receive it!

At first men may receive wonderment and joy from women going topless, but what about after the novelty of seeing breast everywhere you look wore off?

It'd be like eating pancakes, all exciting at first but by the end your sick of it. (-Mitch)

I saw some info related about Korean's history , one of them stated it's illegal for women not to go topless ... but that's few hundred years ago ... and don't ask me where I found it cause it was on the news ...

Chose this side because it will cause more accidents especially car crashes , it's difficult to focus when there are boobs everywhere you know :l ? (no offense)

Side: No

Of course not! I mean, they should have the option as they have the right to do with their own bodies what they will, but I refuse to sit idly by while a generation of women develop sagging breasts due to their half-baked notions of liberty. Breasts must remain perky!

Side: No

It would be a problem now sense we know they are covered.

Side: No
