A couple dozen women marched topless through the streets of Portland, Maine to demonstrate the double-standard of male and female nudity.
Maine law only prohibits nudity when genitalia are exposed.
Yeah, I just wrote "genitalia" for the first time ever. And it made me laugh a little. No, I don't wanna grow up.
From the Maine Sunday Telegram...
"Ty McDowell, who organized the march, said she was 'enraged' by the turnout of men attracted to the demonstration. The purpose, she said, was for society to have the same reaction to a woman walking around topless as it does to men without shirts on.
However, McDowell said she plans to organize similar demonstrations in the future and said she would be more 'aggressive' in discouraging oglers."
So let me get this straight: You, Ms. McDowell, organize a march of topless women through the streets of the largest town in Maine and are surprised that a bunch of dudes show up to check it out?
Really? I mean REALLY?
Note to Ms. McDowell: Guys like boobs.
