Topless women (safe for work)

Why do women have to wear tops? It seems unfair and discriminatory to me; this has been bothering me since I was a teenager.

Any laws especially at the beach that women have to wear tops is stupid IMO.

I agree.

I am still looking for Victoria's Secret to hire me as a salesperson for their line of bras and panties.

I would be the worst bra salesman on earth, I would be trying much harder to keep them from wearing anything.

Ah yes, but I work for nothing in that case.

Wait a minute . . .

Is this the "Dream Job" thread? Okay, me, too. Actually, having men sell stuff at Victoria's Secret sounds like a pretty good idea. I mean it good for salesmen to be enthusiastic, isn't it? I'll bet sales would double, triple!

BTW, I agree. I think it's discriminatory to make women wear tops at the pool and the beach. Well, MOST women. There are still plenty of people, both male and female that should keep things under cover.

Think about it. The woman is trying to find something sexy for her man. What would be better than another man giving his opinion?

Hate to burst anyone's bubble, but I've only seen supermodels/spokespersons clad in VS wear ...

...the women I frequenting the store look NOTHING like them!

There's something about a woman wearing no bra that just about kills me.

Of course they have to be perky!

I agree! Thankfully so does the rest of Ontario (I think it is legal in most of Canada).

It's slowly catching on - my usual running route at my old residence took me past the beach on occasion. I remember a couple of summers ago, I ran past these two young ladies sunbathing. Tanned and fit, they wore bikinis - lower portion only. Made my run.

I agree. And so does my wife. But we have to have some laws, because not everyone would be adult about it. Many guys would be wiping out cameras and perving over it all.

Though she would never (I probably shouldn’t say “never”) go topless solo in public crowds. When it’s aircraft washing time around here (private airport & no kids, summer time) the wife and a couple of the other female crew do tend to openly show their concurrence with what you’re saying. I do think however, that they lean more toward tanning as the issue as apposed to protesting any “unfair and discriminatory” laws.

Beaches are another thing. Those that are somewhat secluded and legally topless beaches anyway. We’ve yet to find any here in the states. However, she has no problem with those that we find in Europe, the Caribbean or Mexico. In fact, a web page for the Westin Regina Resort in Cabo is using her picture (sorry guys - shot from behind) in a beach ad. (For those searching, or have seen it - she’s the one stretching with her hands over her head.)

I can see the need for laws regarding this issue here in the US. Most beaches in the US would become porn sites for all the gawkers if the laws were lifted. And I’m not sure I’d go for my kids playing on a beach full of OO's and perverts. We did take the kids to a couple of places in France and Spain that had nude beaches. I think they dealt with it fine over there because it was a foreign land with foreign people and traditions. (That’s what we told them anyway). There, most folks don’t act like they even notice. Over here, I think it would be an entirely different story.

I hear ya !
I’m also a sucker for cute bare feet on a dashboard.

BTW - Nice Glock!! Do you shoot competitively?

I have a match made Glock 22 (40S&W) that I just love. I worked a photo shoot for Baretta USA and blew them away with it.

I built it up for silhouette shooting and some indoor speed competitions. I usually shoot with Agrips. KKM barrel with 4-port compensator. 5.5 oz. Magwells with custom Jentra bumpers. Extended mag release, slide lock and release lever. Jentra over travel stop (trigger). Non-captive SS guide rod and assorted (5 ttl.) weight recoil springs. T.H.E. Optics mount with either a BSA red dot or a ATN Ultra system pending on what I’m shooting. Sometimes I hunt pigs with a Streamlight TRL-2 Tact light, but am thinking of trying a Crimson Trace laser grip next time. (A friend of mine let me try his. I like it for full moon hunts.)
