Kind of like going to a public nude beach (in places where there are such things) and worried about having a picture taken, isn't it?

Now, on a private beach, different story...that's invasion of privacy, but otherwise...if you're showing the boobs in public, hard to get upset if someone snaps a pic... Was your choice to do so....

The issue of the OP male behaviour isnt really my concern, more so the opinion from my old friend DG that women "ask for it" and are whores if they dont enslave themselves to a certain social code.

Men will be men, but, they need to think about what is nature and what is nurtured in their behaviour

cheers Z


Yawn...very nice Straw Man you created there, executed rather nicely.

And women will be women. You aren't suggesting that males are somewhat of an anomaly are you? Believe it or not but women have responsibilities too. Who would have thought?

I don't think that women intentionally ask to be treated this way, but I do think that the majority are being unwillingly duped into thinking that they are doing something to express themselves, which they will later regret.
But yet it is wholly beneficial to another, unknown cause.

And this activity has a more detrimental effect on society than a one would imagine.

It breaks down respect for women.

Sure, ideally it shouldn't matter, but the sad reality is that most men are troglodytes who drool at the sight of boobs where they are rendered down to the capacity of a toddler with a juvenile fascination.

I am all for equality for women, but I have to tell you...

The women that I find the most attractive are the one's who embrace their femininity, while still being assertive and confident.
But yet still they understand that men and women have different roles,which we are physically constructed to fulfill.

Women are generally much more quick on their feet than men. (smarter)
They should have known that this would end badly, IMHO.

Unfortunately for the protesters, the world we live in appears to be so sexually deprived. We can blame religion for that!

...thinking about it now, the world is not actually sexually deprived but more likely sexually exploited!

Everywhere you go sex is there. Advertisments, TV, TV, the street!
The world is so in your face with what you can't have or what you can't have as much as you'd like too! Therefore the sexdrive of a person goes into a hyperstate of constant sub-conscious arousel or un-arousal!

This is i'm sure what leads to a lot of problems with peoples sex lives. From premature... you know, to no... you know, at all. Or for women, the lack of sex drive or the inability to... you know!

These problems themselves have created a market for drug companies to supply things to help you fix your problems in the bedroom!

I would say that we can partially blame religion, but also equally partially blame the overt sexual manipulations that bombard us daily through a multitude of multi-media advertisements.

We, as a social whole, can take watching people kill one another, much more comfortably, than we can take watching two people have sex.

It was begun as a form of social control through religious guilt.
You are spot on about that, but now, it's combined with overt adverts of sexual expression that create intense sexual/moral dissonance in the brain.
Because the adverts make you desire sex. (watch a soap commercial, shaving commercial, laundry commercial, suntan commercial, clothing commercial, etc.... etc....), and then religions make you feel guilty about these feeling that have been created, purposely.
We are literally exposing ourselves to mind games that create cognitive dissonance, and our brain will go to any length to relieve the dissonance.

After watching that mind game, it sure seems like a great time to sell us all some anti-anxiety or depression medication.

Sex is an irrational behavior. Trying to apply rational logical thought to any aspect of it, especially when men are involved, is an act of futility.

YAY for the U$A.

" blame religion for that "

no no no.... Religion tries to teach souls to take care of themselves and to teach why God created the sex organs, for deepness with a partener and to gaurd yourself from creating babies when not ready and health reasons.

Biggotry can be blamed for blaming religion.


Now as for the OP.

btw dark ghost. Very wise soul. Kudos.



These woman want to be on TV. period. draw attention. who cares if you can't walk around without a bra on? Who says they can't? it's mostly because alot of men are slimeballs.

It's not a big inconvinience wearing a bra. I myself am a male and never walk around without a shirt on. It's not a big deal to me, it shouldn't be to the ladies.


peace OP>

just had a mega argument with my wife... over why she's allowed to read Cosmopolitan but i'm not allowed to read Zoo or FHM.

She says men's magazines are just dematerialized porn and her magazines although containing explicit sexual content helps further a relationship between a man and a woman by offering incite on how to have good sex....

to me, it's just story time porn!

If you want to go nude in public you can just expect your picture to be taken.
Especially in today's world with mini cams, cell phones, and such.

I went to nude beaches when I was young, and yes, my images are on the net. Nothing sexual of course, but still, I'm not too proud of my endowment before I hit puberty, but I was a kid, and normal.
(Everything grew just fine though.)


Even images taken in my teen years, I'm not ashamed of them. I was a long haired hippy kid with a sunburn on my butt, who cares ?

People would even sit off shore in boats, or watch from the UBC bluffs above Wreck Beach to peek. Even along the West Coast Trail, they were there just to take pictures of nudity.
And if they're that hard up to see some skin, I feel sorry for them.:shk:

I'm not ashamed of my body, even though age has taken it's toll.

Nudity is a normal state in my own home, and if the neighbour wants to lay out and tan on our public deck in the back without a top, she is totally within her rights as a Canadian citizen.
Hell, she can go out and cut the lawn, or walk down the street without a top, and so can I.

In law, public nudity is only a crime if there is salacious or malicious intent in my country.
Get over it...........


One side note:

Unless you're a porn addict, and you want to include that as seeing nudity, I've still probably seen more nude bodies than almost anyone here. From the birth of a child, to bathing an incapacitated 90 year old.
Even cutting the clothes off an accident victim to tend a wound.
From birth to grave, I've seen it all.


Edit: I probably need to explain this to some Americans, but breasts are for feeding our young, and they can be viewed in a non-sexual way by most people.

If little kids happened to see some breasts at a demonstration they wouldn't be snapping pictures.
They would probably just get a bit hungry.

Tits are for kids you silly rabbit.......

That is one of the most rediculous things I've read.

If I walked down the street In a tight pair of hot-man-pants and with my member out, I'm pretty damn sure I'd get comments and photos taken... even more so if there were a load of us doing it.

I do agree that saying a woman 'deserved to be raped' for wearing a mini skirt, it is of course completely wrong! However wearing the minimal possible clothing is naturally going to attract a lot of male attention, it's natural so you really can't complain about it.

If you hood up and walk into a shop you get untrusting looks like you are about the rob the place, and yet you get kids complaining they are getting hassle from the police when they wear masks, gloves and hoodies in the street. Dress like a 'gangster' and that's how you will be perceived. I wouldn't wear a scarf round my face, biking gloves and a hoody covering most of my head to a business meeting, so if you don't want a load of attention from guys checking you out, don't dress like a pole dancer... much like I don't wear skin tight pvc trousers showing my man member and see through tops when I go out, as I don't want to get cracked onto by gay guys!

General common sense, something a lot of people seem to be lacking these days!!
