    i always walk around starkers at home. or no knickers and i never wear a bra. even when i go out

    i probably wouldn't do it in public though (although i did when i was younger but that is a different thread.....haha) purely for the weather factor.

    DD1 feels uncomfortable with men being barechested. However guys see it as normal (especially in their own home) and thus will do so. She said to me that she wanted to object and say, "If you dont want to see me walk around half naked, then please dont walk around half naked yourself." I told her that wouldn't work, and would make them more likely to walk around bare-chested in the hope that she would make good on her threat.

    PS: The home belonged to her best friend's boyfriend and they were all socialising together - with other friends, both male and female.

    no i dont think its unfair - I wouldn't expect a man to walk around with his junk out so its all the same.

    i have no issue with open public breastfeeding, but i think exposing your boobs for any other reason should be done in the same context as exposing your genitals ie. privacy of your home or areas where ppl are open to that - nude beaches etc)

    awww, all you nakey haters are making me miss my old home town!

    I remember being so shocked that my BIL's etc down here in Melbourne would NEVER go topless, even at home. I feel like I can't even show my legs there!

    I miss seeing people just in boardshorts with no shirt and no shoes in the shops haha. You only put shoes on if it was so hot that the tar on the road was melted...

    I love people watching though. The less clothes, the more person to watch haha I find it fascinating!

    It's funny how other cultures are though, at one point I remember being with a big group of germans I was friends with in another country, and they all took their clothes off to jump in the pool at the house we were at. I was like . Because as open as the place I grew up in was, it wasn't that open! Then with the same group of friends I remember being shocked at what an old ladies body looked like when one openly undressed and came into the sauna. They laughed at me when I talked about it after, because they had all shared saunas with their own grandparents! I didn't even realise until that point that I didn't even know what real bodies looked like, let alone older people or women post baby etc. I think that experience makes me more happy with my post baby body and more realistic that everyone really *does* look different and not perfect naked.

    Sorry... bit off topic to just being topless!

    I find it endlessly amusing that most of the women who are against men's magazines, porn and risque ads are 100% supportive of women being topless in public, because "breasts aren't sexual"

    Breasts are sexual. We can't change the hundreds of years of conditioning in a day. Men are attracted to breasts because it represents an instinctive desire to mate with a woman who can feed babies, and breasts are visual proof of the ability to breastfeed.

    I remember being in the English Gardens in Munich during the summer one year. At lunch time, all the office workers from the nearby buildings would come to the park, strip off and go swimming in the river and sunbaking. The water was beautiful and clean. I was gibsmacked, no way could I go starkers, I felt risqué enough getting down to my bra n undies.

    I don't really think anyone needs to be wandering around topless, male or female. I find it inappropriate for most public settings.

    I was idly browsing in a clothes store today with my boob out... Does that count?

    Kateiyn was attached to it pretty much the whole time though.

    And yes I do think it's gender discrimination.

    I think men SHOULD wear shirts in most situations and I find it distasteful when they don't. Like the dude who lived on my old street, and he never wore a shirt. I suspect he either didn't own one or hadn't heard of skin cancer.

    But yeah like at the beach etc, I don't see why women can't be topless.

    I was just having a bit of a joke... That is all. I think you should take it in light humour.

    As I said above, I prefer people keep it a bit more conservative unless you are a breastfeeding mum which is understandable given its for a purpose.

    Im not hypocritical, sexist or discriminative in any way and I don't appreciate being slammed as such.
