It's a waste of taxpayer funding, and yet another wasteful attempt to legislate morality. This legislation isn't "protecting" anyone. Yes, the GOP is in favor of a government so small, it can arrest a woman for a tiny bit of areola showing, determine which sexual acts between consenting adults are legal, and whether or not it is illegal for those consenting adults to be of the same gender, while in the privacy of their own home.

Then again, since the Texas GOP have as part of their 2012 education platform that they are against the teaching of critical thinking, this sort of behavior should surprise absolutely nobody.

As a guy, I totally have to be against this kind of ridiculous shit.

Boobs never killed anyone. I swear, news like this ought to provoke more negativity out of people than positivity. People shouldn't be so high and mighty about shit like this. This is why our country is in such a shithole right now. We're worrying about trivial matters such as this rather than focusing on issues like say...The loopholes in immigration, the countless debt we are in, ya know, the big stuff. Not whether or not a woman possesses the right to flip a nip out in the middle of a crowd.

Amazing...

I thought public nudity was already illegal.

I support the idea, however there is a time and a place for everything. I don't have a problem with nude beaches, or breast feeding, but walking around topless isn't just affecting you, but everyone around you as well. If someone wants to do that in private or in a decent way, fine. People are already being desensitized to sex and the human body, the last thing we need is our children seeing oppai their whole lives.

For guys, it's a chest. For women, it's a sexual organ. Would you walk around bottomless?

Was this proposed from consensus and feedback from the constituency that will be eligible to vote for this measure? If not, then those old ladies sitting at the state capitol must have nothing better to do. I'm not sure if it is discriminatory that it seems to specifically affect females or if the act of baring one's breast in protest counts as free speech or that it aims to quell female solidarity and promotes chauvinistic sexism, from my perspective. A pointless law.

Nay obviously.

This issue is so miniscule compared to other important issues in society. So it has come to the point where people have nothing to do it seems.

You say that as if its a bad thing... Why should people look at the human body or the natural act of sexual intercourse as if its some shameful thing?

I posit that it is in part because people stigmatize sex as something shameful, and push for failed initiatives such as abstinence-only education, that issues such as teen pregnancy are so prolific. Abstinence-only education, by its very nature, is not comprehensively educational, and because it breeds ignorance of contraception (no pun intended) it leads to higher rates of teen pregnancies, along with the spreading of STIs. If it worked as well as people claim it does, then the correlation would be in the opposite direction.

http://news.uga.edu/releases/article/abstinence-only-education-does-not-lead-to-abstinent-behavior/

Additionally, abstinence-plus programs, as well as other comprehensive sexual health education programs, have proven much more effective, both in reducing the rates of teen pregnancy, and the spreading of STIs between teenagers. If they know what it is, and how to use it properly, the chances of pregnancy are 99% safer than say...prayer. From this I conclude that we should not shy away from talking about sex to children, but rather address their questions and concerns openly, so that they are better prepared for adulthood.

So what if they happen to see some exposed breasts? If that might encourage some parents get over their own hangups regarding sex, and have an open conversation about it, maybe their kids won't make them grandparents by the time the kids turn 14 or 15.

Yes, seriously.


Knowledge-Based Education – We oppose the teaching of Higher Order Thinking Skills (HOTS) (values clarification), critical thinking skills and similar programs that are simply a relabeling of Outcome-Based Education (OBE) (mastery learning) which focus on behavior modification and have the purpose of challenging the student’s fixed beliefs and undermining parental authority.

Honestly this is the worst idea and anyone who honestly supports it is extremely silly. Sure, let's just take women to prison for showing their nipples and continue defending rapist and ignoring billions of other problems far more important. Yupp.
This shouldn't even be an issue, why on Earth should we ever shame our bodies? People should gain a sense of self control and learn to handle casual life with nude people, anyway. I'm sure plenty of nudist would appreciate it.

Um, I think you're doing it wrong. Boobs are awesome and all, but they're not sexual organs. They're for decoration and for feeding babies.

Besides, this bill isn't about getting women to wear shirts when they're out and about, it's about regulating topless bars so that the pole dancers have to wear tape over their nipples. Now isn't that just a crying shame?
