Rev Fred Nile is out of touch with people. He would like to ban topless bathing for women. I thought that it was illegal to discriminate by a persons sex. Is he living in the 21st century or the 19th? He goes on to say that it is for a woman's protection as it increases breast cancer. Some people are saying that men should be banned as well if women are. Oh that is smart, lets just take a giant step back 200 years why don't we.
People no matter their sex should have equal freedom. People can make a choice on what food they eat. Whether it is healthy food or something bad like a quick take away. Junk food is the main cause for most of our modern illnesses. More people die of bad diet related illnesses than topless sun bathing. Why doesn't Fred Nile support a ban on bad food if he really cares about people and their health?
It is an obvious way for him to get some quick media attention as we haven't heard from him in a while. As it stands in most areas of Australia it is illegal for a woman to be without her top. She cannot legally be without her top in the same place that a man is allowed. This is the single largest colluded oppression of women in modern times. It is a shame that many women don't fully comprehend what this means. It means that on a legal point of view women are NOT equal to men.
Some say that a woman's breasts are an erogenous zone. Well so is a man's. So are the ears, neck, fingers, heck any part of the body can be erogenous if we choose it to be. That is the important part here. Choice!
Many people think that this idea is to make women go topless. No it is thetrue legal equality of woman that is at stake.
If the above woman was topless, she would have been arrested in no time. Why? Because she is a woman. A man in the same situation wouldn't have raised an eye brow.
This is a very important issue that needs to be resolved by giving women equal rights.
