    I think everyone should leave their shirts on.

    I think the law should be interpreted equally for the sexes.
    Just because I don't want to join men in being able to go topless doesn't mean I should stop other women from doing so.
    Just because I don't want to join men in wearing thongs (footwear) doesn't mean it should be illegal for other women to do so.
    I don't see the difference between the two clothing scenarios. Fair is fair.

    In my quick google since opening this thread (not sure how reliable my source was) it said that obscene exposure in Vic was specifically exposure of genitals, which would mean it is already OK for women to also be topless there.
    NSW was wishy-washy with its "wilful and obscene exposure" without specifying objectively what actually is considered obscene. So, it seems that earlobe-exposure could be illegal in NSW - depending entirely upon who sees it.

    Finally, someone else who wants to put an end to the wanton exposure of ear-lobes. I thought I was alone!!

    And then we have those exhibitionists that go so far as to pierce and put jewellery on their earlobes just to draw attention to their exposure. I'm surprised there haven't been riots.

    I think we should put a climate controlled dome over the whole country, and everyone should be able to go naked all the time......

    What's the purpose of clothes? To protect our bodies from the elements as we don't have thick skin or fur??? I don't know.

    Maybe if everyone was naked all the time we wouldn't have so many hang-ups about bodies.

    Big difference between a photoshopped magazine/advert with unrealistic portrayals of women's photoshopped bodies and sexuality within eyes view of young children and women having the same right as men to not wear a shirt at the beach.

    I agree with OJ. We wouldn't have so many hangups if we weren't so prudent about normal, natural bodies. Other countries manage it just fine.

    WOW not a lot of you would enjoy my home. We undress the moment we walk in the door haha. We are naturists and attend nude beaches and retreats its great to be judged on your personality and not the way you look.

    Everyone is so free and it is a real confidence booster. Oh and no we are not all size 8 models haha. I'm pregnant and a size 20 at the moment. Its great to go there and feel so free.

    Try walking around your bedroom naked and you will see how comfortable you will become. My dh and I are free about nudity and I think this makes our dd so confident in her own body and she is so great at not judging others bodies becuase of it I think. I want her to grow up with a positive body image and with the knowledge that all of our bodies are beautiful no matter there shape or size.
