Equal Rights May Lead to Seeing The Twins.

Considering that my first article on the subject went over so well I have been contemplating a follow-up piece. If you haven't read the first one, it seemed to tickle some funny bones and resonated with others.

Two Little Words, is about the fun, excitement, and freedom people feel when they get naked. In today's world, this has taken on an entirely different meaning in society. We now live in a society that is becoming far more accepting of nudity than in the years prior. Perhaps, one day, long after I'm gone from this world, America will adopt a more European view of nudity. Already, laws have changed allowing for things like seeing the twins strolling towards you in six states and at least fifteen cities.

A federal court ruling coming out of the 10th circuit court of appeals, which presides over Utah, Colorado, Wyoming, New Mexico, Kansas, and Oklahoma, made it essentially legal for women to go topless in public in September of 2019. The case was brought forth by Brit Hoagland and Samantha Six, who sued Ft. Collins Colorado over a ban on toplessness. They argued that being able to take off their shirts in public was their right and is a step toward gender equality. Their attorney argued that the topless bans are attacks on equal rights.

Clearly, the issue wasn't and isn't settled. Eventually, the federal supreme court will no doubt have to take up the argument. In 2017 the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals which rules over Chicago, parts of Illinois, Wisconsin, and Indiana, upheld Chicago's banning of women going topless in public. The differences from area to area point to a showdown at the supreme court level between the cities and states still fighting and the #freethenipple movement. In the meantime, there are a number of notable cities that allow for toplessness across the genders.

New Orleans, Louisiana (Mardi Gras)

During Mardi Gras, women can and do go bare during the blowout carnival that ends with the start of Lent. Parades, balls, floats, lots of booze, and dancing around the streets is the normal order of the day during the annual celebratory festival. You'll see plenty of twin sets parading down the streets, leaning over the many balconies, rolling up to the bars, and proudly posing for pictures. Mardi Gras in New Orleans has a famous reputation for being a wildly fun and uninhibited event. Most of the girls don't bother with the camouflage beads so have a couple of stiff drinks and get out there and enjoy the show.

New York City

Females going topless is legal in New York state because it has not been banned by their laws. New York City decided to allow it and the police don't get involved with the babes out there unless crowds start to form. If you visit New York in warm weather and you hit Times Square be prepared for some good-looking babe to come up and offer to pose for a photo with you, and she'd likely be topless.

Austin, Texas

According to GoTopless.com Austin Texas is a topless-friendly town. Cowgirls in tight jeans, cowboy boots, cowboy hats, and topless, sounds attractive no matter how you spin it. A stroll by the University campus in Austin might just get you a lucky eye full. The church types in Texas might not appreciate this level of equality between the genders but who really cares, it's sunny and can be pretty damned hot in Austin. So if you go for a visit and decide to partake, ladies, take along some sunscreen. Keep in mind, local ordinances in other towns might not be as friendly.

Portland, Oregon

There's no real surprise here. The beautiful forests of the Northwest aside, Portland has spent plenty of time in the news over the past year. One thing that I didn't know, is if you sent out for a walk or a bike ride through the forest and end up encountering a topless girl, don't be surprised. It could happen anywhere, in and around Portland, a town known for its extremely liberal background and vibe. Both men and women can go topless in Portland. Oregon has a naturalist vibe, being host to a high number of nudist colonies, beaches, and resorts. People in Oregon obviously like those two little words, "Get Naked."

Fort Collins, Colorado

After the Federal Judge gave the green light to the "free the nipple" movement, striking down a town ordinance that banned women from baring their breasts with an argument it endangered children, the local men were quite pleased with the judge. The town held several meets and greets photoshoots to celebrate the newfound freedom of the women to celebrate.

Other cities include Washington DC, Eugene Oregon, Asheville North Carolina, Keene Newhampshire, Columbus OH, and Madison Wisconsin. To stay up with the current cities and legal issues, before you dare go bare, check out gotopless.org. https://gotopless.org/

I have spent a life in uniform, adventuring through this muddled-up world as time passed. I've lived, loved, fallen on my face only to try again. Now, as I get older, my only regret was not writing it down. It's time to start.
