Many people on this forum have stated that "women should be able to be topfree wherever men can be topfree." I'd say that the overriding issue of this forum is one of equality. Probably most of us want to have topfree gender equality as a long-term goal. Gender equality is just as morally valid as racial equality. Some people who were quick to condemn South African apartheid are today quick to make excuses for gender apartheid in other countries. Sure, one can say "it's their culture" but we could have said the same thing about apartheid S. Africa. Gender equality is not a matter of being equal physically, it is a matter of having legal equality, and that is still just a dream in most nations of the world. Many nations still don't allow women to even vote, and women do not have topfree equality in the USA.
Back to breast freedom, our main concerns (and differences) are probably that of what is the best strategy of obtaining the long-term goals of bra- and breast-freedom. Some posters have voiced an uncompromising support for topfree equality in all instances, while others have voiced equally sensible concerns about what is productive and what is counterproductive. Both are valid, and they differ mostly in their time-frame. I'd love to see immediate equality. Since that is unlikely, even in the USA (some Europeans might say especially in the USA), given the power of fundamentalist elements, one can rationally look towards what is pragmatic. One could argue that a very effective (and totally legal) first step is bra freedom. Let us stop the name-calling a moment and rejoice in what most of us have in common, a wish for more equality. When answering posts, keep in mind that the radical right would LOVE to see us fragmented and disorganized and ineffective.
