Free The Nipple Weirdos; What In The Sam H.E. Double L.L. Is That?
Well, let’s dive in and find out what ‘Free The Nipple’ is all about. So according to this— The campaign highlights the general convention of allowing men to appear topless in public while considering it lewd or indecent for women to do the same, and asserts that this difference is an unjust treatment of women. The campaign argues that it should be legally and culturally acceptable for women to bare their nipples in public.
Whaaaat??? Okay, so it’s unjust treatment because society doesn’t allow women to bare their breast in public in the same way as their male counterparts.

So, this is why I got curious about this movement; According to this, three broads from New Hampshire are suing the state because of a city ordinance that prohibits public nudity.
Here’s one of the women:
All three women received tickets in 2016 when they decide to bare their nipples at a public beach. Since other people at the beach were subjected to the sight of their boobs, and didn’t particularly appreciate it. They complained and a police officer asked the women to cover up. They refused, they were arrested, and now here we are.
The state Supreme Court will hear the case on the first of February. The chicks are hoping that the city ordinance will be invalidated, because they believe since there is no state law forbidding female toplesseness, they’re in the right. Plus, they think the ordinance is discriminatory, since men are allowed to be shirtless.
Of course, the New Hampshire ACLU got involved, and they’re supporting these three broads because they believe showing your boobs is a matter of free expression.
‘Here, the Laconia ordinance prevents women from making choices about their state of bodily expression using the full range of options available to their male counterparts,’ said Gilles Bissonnette, the group’s legal director.
‘This case presents an issue of significant importance concerning the right of women under the New Hampshire constitution to speak freely and the constitutional implications of codified stereotypes related to females’ roles and sexuality.’
And because people in the AG’s office have Actual Common Sense, their defense against this suit is that allowing women to expose their boobs everywhere would cause public disturbances.
And of course, they’re right. But this is 2018, and today’s women care deeply about showing their boobs.
Well, there you have it. Free The Nipples— We’ll be watching SCOTUS in February to see how this goes down.
