Supreme Court Won’t Hear NH ‘Free The Nipple’ Appeal
C'mon RBG. I have to say, I'm a little disappointed.
The Supreme Court, according to an article in FoxNews, would not hear an appeal by 3 women (Heidi Lilley, Kia Sinclair and Ginger Pierro) who were arrested for violating a Laconia NH ordinance by exposing their nipples in public as part of the "Free the Nipple" movement. Laconia prohibits FEMALE toplessness in public.
The three women say that it violates the Constitution.
The "Free the Nipple" movement was also the subject of a court challenge in Colorado last year, according to another report at Fox News. The City of Fort Collins removed an ordinance that banned women from going topless in public after spending more than $300,000 defending it in Court.
Why would the Supreme Court refuse to hear the case? I can only speculate that maybe they only interpret the law and the law says what it says and that's that. Leaving the job of changing the wording to Lawyers. It almost makes me want to move to Laconia to see if I can do something about it.
I know that Laconia is home to "Bike Week" and there is a lot of debauchery that happens during that week. I understand that they don't want a bunch of people running around naked. The solution is simple. Laconia just needs to prohibit MALE AND FEMALE TOPLESSNESS. That's really all we are looking for. EQUALITY in everything.
2020 is a big year for women. It's the 100th anniversary of our RIGHT TO VOTE. Think about that for a minute. African American males got the right to vote in 1870. Women of all colors had to wait another 50 years until 1920.
Let me tell you something, dear blog reader: I am comfortable wearing a shirt in all circumstances, but if guys can go around without a shirt on when it's hot, women should at least have the choice to do the same.
Equal in all things.
