Peaceful Bare-chested Outing in Pittsburgh

Doing the right thing the right way sounds easier than it really is. . You should be very proud of what you have been doing for destigmatizing female barecheatedness. Keep up the great work!

Frick FC Frick Park, Pittsburgh, Pennsyvlania. March 2016. After three months in discussion with the Pittsburgh Bureau of Police, we received confirmation from the PBP legal department of what we already knew, that male and female bare-chestedness is to be treated the same under Pennsylvania law.

Last week I opened my email to find a message from the Pittsburgh Bureau of Police legal department confirming, after three months of conversation, that public female bare-chestedness is legal in Pennsylvania.

Here’s what they wrote:

CONCLUSION There is no City or State law which expressly prohibits or even addresses the act of appearing bare-breasted in public. Based upon the information provided to the Law Department, the City does not appear to have any legal grounds under the City Code or Title 18 (i.e. the Commonwealth’s Crimes Code) to cite or arrest women for being bare-chested without any additional sexual or criminal behavior associated therewith…

Is there anything better ?

Certainly no!

The Naked Truth continues...

Is there anything better than taking your clothes off ?  Probably not !
In every group of friend, there’s at least one person who’s always the first to suggest a trip to the clothing-optional beach or a midsummer skinny dip. These are the “naked people,” or those among us who have discovered that there truly is nothing better than being nude. But opting to wear only your birthday suit can sometimes get a bad rap. Naturists, who make a lifestyle of living in the nude, are often misunderstood or stigmatized as “hippies,” creeps or, worse, perverts. In reality, the naturist credo is quite simple: Living comfortably in your body is the best way to live. In fact, going nude has tremendous psychological and physical benefits.

Because there are no better experts on going au naturel, talking to naturists can bring you different opinions however all talk about the major…

Why Some Parents are Afraid of Bare-Chestedness

Ver y thoughtful post. I can relate to what you’ve said having a teenage daughter.

DC HSF 4 National Mall, Washington D.C., Fall 2015

I have spent a lot of time studying fear and anxiety, both generally and how it relates to normalizing female bare-chestedness.

I traveled to New Hamphire this week to attend the trial of the women who asked to be cited after police officers asked them to cover their breasts at a Gilford town beach.

Two witnesses testified that they were mothers and were offended on behalf of their and other children.  One said she was offended in her own right, and didn’t want her son to see breasts.

I also just watched poorly made news footage from Woodlawn Beach in Buffalo where women have apparently been going bare-chested with some regularity (according to the hyperbolic reporting) and they managed to find an offended mother who said she was totally fine with topless sunbathing, just not in front of her daughter.

And of course I have heard…

I Can Feel Bare-Chestedness Normalizing

Couldn’t agree more on your perspective towards normalizing bare-chestedness. I find what your are doing really admirably.

Blog Georgetown landscape Georgetown University, Washington D.C. December 2015. Who says global climate change isn’t real? 70 degrees on December 13? But it made for a nice normal walk… no negative interactions in three hours.

I walk bare-chested primarily because I enjoy feeling free.  My strong secondary reason for walking bare-chested is to normalize female bare-chestedness, so that other women may feel the same way.

The only way to normalize anything is to do it with so much regularity and normality that people stop being afraid of it and start seeing it as conventional behavior. This is my motivation for posting photos and videos of my walks.  I want people to see and hear for themselves the reactions (and more importantly the non-reactions) of the public as I walk by.

There exists this misconception that going bare-chested is some disruptive act of revolution and that traffic will stop and babies will cry. Perhaps…

Call 911!

How can someone feel threatened by a group of topless women?

The Outdoor Co-ed Topless Pulp Fiction Appreciation Society

IMG_7462After our rooftop adventure (chronicled previously), we headed down with our new friend from the New York Times to the streets of Brooklyn and the grassy lawns of Prospect Park.

IMG_7374IMG_7372IMG_7387At first, no one seemed to take notice of us — so much so that our reporter friend commented on it, amazed that the presence of half a dozen women relaxing topless in a public space attracted not a single stare or rude comment. But like most things that seem too good to be true, it was: after perhaps half an hour, a police car cruised slowly to a stop alongside us and the officers inside sheepishly indicated they’d received several calls to 911 complaining of our presence. Because, you know. Breasts. Clearly they require armed men in uniform to subdue.

IMG_7414IMG_7419What were we doing to deserve the attention of the police? Sitting; reading; talking; eating chocolate. All while failing to…

Being naked should not be shamed

randomfactsgeekjga

Why does being naked have to be shamed and something to be reluctant about? Why do we have to live like this?

Governments have created so many laws prohibiting public nudity. We’re told by the media, peer pressure, and society to be ashamed of simple nudity. It has passed down from our parents, grandparents, and so on since humanity became so accustomed to clothing.

always allow nudity We should be allowed to be naked anywhere at any time. No joke, exaggeration, or lie.

From a young age, we’re taught to be ashamed of seeing nudity, either of ours or of others. It’s unfair to require clothing in all times and places. Due to this insanity created by society, we have never-nudes.

Every home should be nude-friendly. In fact, the whole world needs to be nude-friendly.

Shaming nudity is a bad idea. It leads to problems like insecurity about our bodies, a lower self-esteem…

The Naked Woman Within Screaming To Get Out

Great post. Hopefully more women embrace body freedom and blogs like yours might help.

Freedom Fields Naturist Ranch

As a female nudist I wonder why it is in a world where we have fought throughout the years for equality that there are not more female nudists?
 
Many women have fought for our rights to bare our breasts in public just as our male counterparts do and won the fight, however we don’t go out in public bare breasted. WHY?
 
Yvonne and her Babe

So after a great deal of communication with women I thought it best to put these issues in writing. Now please do not shoot the messenger. My only objective here is to create a more comfortable and understanding message to let the ladies know that it is OK to be nude.

Society as a whole has sent out mixed messages throughout the years and some of these have created a great deal of confusion and anxiety for woman. Lets see, your too fat, your too skinny, you too…
