    Pretty much this. I don't mind people getting their kit off while, say, at the beach or swimming. But as non-prudish as I am, I rate a man going out in public shirtless down there with those who go out without shoes!

    I have no problem with boobs - in fact I rather like them (for a straight gal!) - but I know not everyone feels that way, so I don't mind the fact that women have to cover up.

    That being said, I have NO problem with a woman getting a boob out to breast feed! And get annoyed when people DO mind.

    yes i wish it was legal for women to go topless in public here.

    i think its a stupid law. they've done studies to find out which cultures sexualise breasts - and only 13 out of more than 100 countries actually sexualise the boob - everywhere else its more bum/thighs etc which are sexualised.

    even if it was just legal to be topless at the beach. twould be nice.

    In answer to the question though, I think it's a stupid rule and is only there purely because this country sexualises breasts.

    As kitty said, we need to be more like European countries - they're just boobs.

    Totally agree I personally didn't like breastfeeding in public but take my hat off to women that do, Other than breastfeeding think there is a time and place to get your gear off, and Coles isn't one of them for males or females. It's air conditioned in there !!!!

    If I took my top off in public people may run at me with pitchforks

    Hm well technically it's not my problem that someone else has sexualised my bits Plus men have body parts which have been sexualised (shoulders...biceps...), but they are allowed to prance around revealing them in public...

    London - you make an interesting point regarding the nipple. There's just something incredibly rude about that brown circle and it MUST be hidden

    I think that where it is appropriate, women shouldn't be banned from being topless.

    I didn't realise you weren't allowed to be topless in australia... at outdoor pools, beaches etc? Not that I have, but where I grew up it was a tourist town and the pools, beaches, any park/grass area always had some backpacker or random locals sunbathing topless. At the learn to swim lessons held by the school at the local pools they were always spread all over the grass sunbaking topless, I guess because it was a work day and more quiet.

    Maybe it's just ignored there? lol. Everyone still does it!

    What are the actual laws on it?

    Must just be me, but I think women should keep their boobs private when in places where it is not appropriate (I.E. The shops etc). At a beach or somewhere of the like, fine but I think that they should be topless away from children etc.

    Might sound like I am just closed minded, but I hate seeing women walking getting their tops off in public, I just feel its innaproriate. For BF purposes I dont mind but other then that, leave them covered.

    But I think there are situations a man needs a shirt too, again the shops etc.

    Although I will say I don't mind hot, muscley, topless tradesmen lol.
