    PORTLAND – About two dozen women marched topless from Longfellow Square to Tommy's Park this afternoon in an effort to erase what they see as a double standard on male and female nudity.


    A group of women and men who had shed their tops march down a Congress Street sidewalk from Longfellow Square to Tommy's Park. They were promoting the freedom of women to be topless in public. The group attracted many amateur and professional photographers.



    The women, preceded and followed by several hundred boisterous and mostly male onlookers, many of them carrying cameras, stayed on the sidewalk because they hadn't obtained a demonstration permit to walk in the street. About a thousand people gathered as the march passed through Monument Square, a mix of demonstrators, supporters, onlookers and those just out enjoying a warm and sunny early-spring day.

    After the marchers reached Tommy's Park in the Old Port, some turned around and walked back to Longfellow Square, but most stayed and mingled in the park. Some happily posed for pictures.

    Police said there were no incidents and no arrests – nudity is illegal in Maine only if genitals are displayed.

    Ty McDowell, who organized the march, said she was "enraged" by the turnout of men attracted to the demonstration. The purpose, she said, was for society to have the same reaction to a woman walking around topless as it does to men without shirts on. :lmao:

    However, McDowell said she plans to organize similar demonstrations in the future and said she would be more "aggressive" in discouraging oglers. :eek: :eek:

    :lmao: :lmao:


    Men !! :bow:

    I think it'd be more accurate to compare that to men walking down the street without pants on.

    Same thing happened here in NYC on Central Park South. Unfortunately there weren't many very attractive women parading around topless for the same cause.

    I don't know how you could be outraged. It's been hardwired for the better part of 200,000 years. Now, in the last 30 or 40, you want it to change as if evolution never played a role? This kind of thing is silly to me.

    You watch Portland. They strive to be the NW version of SanFran. Its comical the news that comes out of that place sometimes.


    Great city though.

    That'd be kind of odd to evolve clothing. The best (well, most prolific) nature has come up with is fur. But I imagine we could genetically engineer our bodies to start producing clothes. Starting in the womb, your body grows a new pair of tighty whities, shorts, and a tshirt? You could end up with mutations that have pants growing on your head. That'd be awesome.
