Fox TV writes about National Go Topless Day to be held Sunday, August 26th

Most Americans confuse the rights of women to go topless wherever a man can go shirtless with modesty instead of fashion.

Back in the 1700's, it was very fashionable for nobility in Europe to have their breasts completely exposed when going to balls. Then came Victorian prudishness, where a woman showing a bare ankle was considered showing too much flesh and was a society no no.

Men in the US until the 1930's could be arrested for being bare chested at the beach. Why do we subject American women to this same repression? Here's a photo showing what it was like on American beaches back in the early 1900's.

The purpose of Go Topless Day is equality. It is acceptable for women to be topless wherever men go shirtless in much of Europe, why not in the US?

Women, once you go topless sunbathing, you will never want to wear a ill fitting bathing suit top again. We support this movement. Good luck everyone!

Fox TV reported on this event to be held this Sunday August 22nd. Of course all of our guests will be celebrating it as everyday of the year is Go Topless day here at The Terra Cotta Inn located in sunny Palm Springs, California.

Here's the story:

"As long as men can be topless, constitutionally women should have the same right, or men should also be forced to wear something hiding their chest," Maitreya, Rael, "spiritual leader" and founder of Go Topless , the group behind Sunday's annual event, says on the group's website...

The annual event is held on the Sunday nearest to Aug. 26, the date in 1920 when the U.S. Constitution was amended to grant women the right to vote. Also, Congress in 1970 declared Aug. 26 "Women's Equality Day."

Major cities taking part include: San Francisco; New York; Austin, Texas ; Los Angeles; Denver; Seattle; Miami, and Chicago ...

For supporters of the topless cause, a woman's breasts should not be treated any different than her legs, belly button or other body parts than can be exposed without hassle.

"It's a matter of fairness," Go Topless director Nadine Gary told AOL News . "We want equal topless rights for all or none." ...

She said the goal is also to establish clarity in what's allowed. Gary noted that a woman arrested in New York for going topless in public was later awarded $29,000 for wrongful arrest...
