It would be optional. Most women probably wouldn't go topless in public. I'm sure it would be nice for them in certain situations though. And I think a lot of women would like to be able to tan topless.

  • I’d like there to be more freedom, girls should have the right to go topless like men, they don’t have too, but they shouldn’t be forced to cover up at the threat of being arrested or something for part of their body like that, a lot different of a country would result in countless ways if that changed, but just to see the option would be nice because girls shouldn’t be told what to do with their bodies by the government in more ways than just this issue

    • That's true

    • 7d

      I care, but only cause women arnt allowed.
      Also, I've seen several situations where a fat shirtless man is fine but a fat women in a sports bra is deemed a public disturbance.

      And walking in sports bras are allowed.

  • I am wondering if some of the girls here have a brain. The question was if you should be allowed not if you should be topless. Of course we should be allowed. For some reason female nipples are viewed differently from male nipples, but the boob itself, the part which is different can be on display with no issues.

  • I think that would be fun! Hopefully it would be perceived as normal someday. Because it’s fun at the beach, but being able to step outside the house topless would be so liberating! 😄

  • I mean men are allowed to be topless in certain areas, so why not?

    But most women (including myself) would never do so because: 1) we KNOW how perverted most men are, and how they would be oogling us if we were topless, and 2) some of us rather be covered up than exposed to the world!

  • My opinion is not so clear about this.
    Men go shirtless and we don't drool over them. If women to topless what about men who would be staring at us or try even more than just stare?

    • It's about social perception... But if it's in the process then eventually society will accept this practice...

    • Women don't Drool over exposed male torso because male torso is plain boring simple and many times ugly hairy beastly...
      Men would Drool over lady torso because women have better beautiful torso

  • I think they should be allowed to but I fear that in current society, they would be in danger of assault, they shouldn't fear that but sadly the current world we live in would be dangerous for a woman to be topless :'(

    However, if you think about it, some guys even say it is the same thing and that girls shouldn't touch guys chests without permission which is true, I guess it is a subject that I could go on for ages but that is my analytical personality :)

  • I don't see why not if they really want to. Sometimes what some girls wear is almost like what's even the point of you wearing something anyway and then youd probably have people that may want the support from a bra so you'd have a mix of people

    • I completely agree and I'm not against it at all. But, I personally would NOT be comfortable walking around topless lol but it is definetely a personal choice and should be allowed in every country.

  • i'm all for free the nipple but in today's society it's unrealistic to introduce toplessness as a social norm for women, solely because tits are are already so sexualised so it'd essentially be like a guy walking around with his dick out. Also cat-calling would get 50x worse lol

  • I don't think guys should be allowed to go topless, unless of course swimming, but it's bad enough that some girls pretty much walk around naked as it is. Now I don't have a problem with girls who are confident in their bodies, but I don't need, nor want to see your body outside of the bedroom. I'm sorry but that's me.

  • that's a little overboard, don't you think? While I believe position of women is equal to men and they deserve the same rights as them, I voted for a no because that's just not something my culture has taught. The idea sounds pretty cool to me tbh, but I'm kinda awkward w these kinda things.

  • Just for the sake of equality alone girls should be allowed to go topless. Of course as a guy I would love to see more women topless so to me this is a no brainer as well. With all that said, in NYC it is legal for a woman to be topless. In 1992 a woman sued because men could take their shirts off in public but women couldn’t and won. In the summer I usually see a couple bold women walking down the street window shopping topless. I love NYC!

  • No😔I’m all for equal rights, but there is no such thing as having equal bodies. A woman showing her chest isn’t the same as a man showing his. It just isn’t practical, realistic, or safe to me that a woman can go topless and no one would care

    • Why wouldn't you? Have you tried it? Go to a nude or topless beach in Florida or California where there are many topless girls and it isn't a big deal. No one cares and it feels SO much better than wearing a cold wet bikini.

    • So do you wear a bikini on the beach or at a pool? Does it show most of your boobs? How much of your vagina does it cover? Does most of your butt show?

    • @Paige90 I guess what I wear could be considered to be a bikini top, but it covers the breasts. For the rest its just swim shorts. And no, none of those areas are showing.

  • Yes we should have the option, but not force those who don't want to or make them feel bad for not wanting to.

      Miss that part?
      Lol

    • 7d

      No one would make them feel bad for not participating, Look at nude beaches for example. There's usually a mixture of topless women and women in bikinis. It's not an expectation of every woman to be topless because it's optional and it wouldn't make sense for anyone to shame you for not going topless. If some women do that then that's wrong and they should be told off.

  • I feel like only at the beach. I do not approve this of men walking around with their tops off freely walking around the park etc.. but the beach I grew up in La Palma where women did walk topless and no one was phased.

  • go ahead and run an experiment at work, or a party, have a topless day (optional, not required). Make a video. Or shoes and shirt are not required. Lets see how it goes. Wouldn't that be odd to go to the checkout line, and the checkout people don't have tops on... at all? Is there anywhere in the world that is the case other than nude beach?

    In general, don't think it would work in our society or any I know of. Something inside of us says it's too exposing.

  • Of course they should be allowed to go topless if they want to and the whole 'their sexual' argument is silly. Most parts of the human body can be sexualized and is. Does that mean we should all be concealed head to foot? Hell women's feet are regularly sexualized and can be stimulated for pleasure, does this mean I can't wear flip flops anymore? And the whole guys can't control themselves thing is stupid as well, guys aren't all closet sex offenders, they do have self control

    • 75 years ago people had to cover their legs at a beach or pool because that was considered sexual. Society has deemed boobs sexual (at least in North America) so going topless is a big deal in most of the US. In Europe going topless is normal on beaches and no one cares and no one stares. I think it's MUCH more sexual to wear a bikini top that shows most of your boobs and also pushes them up and together in order to make them look better and bring attention to them. All I am saying is to go to a crowded topless beach and try it before you judge. It isn't a big deal and in 50 years it will be the norm.

  • I don’t think it should be illegal for a woman to choose to do so, I’m all for freedom, but I can’t see it ever becoming a cultural norm. It would generate a lot of unwanted attention from men.

    • It's considered sexual assault to grab a woman's inner thigh. Should women's thighs be covered at all times?

    • @elizabeth-jen I’m just pointing out what comes with being a man. When something is not sexualized like a man’s chest, it oddly gets a lot more attention. Growing up you might not have had women judge you for stuffing your bra, but you’d have random men and women just grab your nipple and give you a tittie twister as a joke because it’s fair game. As a teen I had a number of girls ask me if I have a harry chest and just pull my shirt up to my neck randomly without asking me to look at my chest. When went to get vaccinations for college the nurse practitioner said wow you’re a big man, you have nice big muscle and squeezed my biceps and chest muscles and rubbed my “breast”. When someone wants you to stop as a man they will put their hand on your chest forceful without thinking, as a woman that’s no go and they spread their arms out and tell you to stop rather than putting their hands on you. There are a lot of things you take on when you get one small freedom… You loose tons of privileges that you take for granted or don’t even understand you have based on the down votes. There’s fantasy land that you girls live in, and then there is the real world. One thing triggers an entire other line of events.

  • women should be allowed to go around topless, anatomically it should be considered the same thing as a man going topless. but societally it would be difficult to convince many people to make that shift, considering that breasts are so sexualized and they carry the stigma of a sexual organ. it would be so much more convenient for breastfeeding mothers and heat, and possibly cause the normalization of natural breasts and bralessness or maybe just become another category of body-shaming (her tits look so bad without a bra, her nipples are weird etc.) I don't know but it's super interesting to think about
