Federal Judge Rules It’s Unconstitutional To Forbid Women Going Topless In Public

Women in Fort Collins, Colorado, are insisting that male and female breasts are in fact identical. This rabbit hole goes nowhere we want to be.

Men have forever adored the glorious eroticism of the female bosom while remaining unmoved by its hairy male counterpart. Since the beginning of time, humans have all instinctively known that men’s and women’s breasts are different. Ta-tas are the bomb.

But women in Fort Collins, Colorado, are insisting that male and female breasts are in fact identical. Brandishing their bare bouncing breasts along with signs proclaiming, “My breasts are no more sexual than my mouth or my hands,” “Honk for gender equality,” and “Free the NIP,” they are out in the streets demonstrating for mammary equality in this once-placid college town.

Who knew that breast equality is a vital constitutional issue? But since the Fort Collins indecency code makes it a crime for women, but not men, to display their nipples, we’re talking basic mammary civil rights here. George Washington and Thomas Jefferson would be outraged that the freedom of bosom expression the First Amendment guarantees is being violated by this prudish, pearl-clutching ordinance. How disgraceful that women are not allowed to be exactly the same as men in constitutional shirtlessness.

How Dare You Tell Me Chests Aren’t Breasts

The brave women of Fort Collins, who for years have been struggling against the cruel oppression of breasts imprisoned in clothing, were cheered when last February U.S. District Judge R. Brooke Jackson agreed with them. The law, said the judge, is based on gender discrimination, and violates the Fourteenth Amendment’s guarantee of “the equal protection of the laws.”

Though it’s doubtful that anyone was thinking about protecting women’s’ right to nipple flaunting when the amendment was ratified in 1868, in 2017 this judge promptly issued an injunction against enforcement. The issue is now being considered by the Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals, certainly a wise use of taxpayer funds.

The law “perpetuates a stereotype ingrained in our society that female breasts are primarily objects of sexual desire, whereas male breasts are not,” Jackson wrote. “The irony is that by forcing women to cover up their bodies, society has made naked women’s breasts something to see.” Yes indeedy, ever since the first girly magazines appeared as pagan fertility goddesses sporting a 36 DDD. Nevertheless, in the past several years “Free the Nipple” has become an international cause celeb.

This massively absurd denial of sexual reality comes from the usual suspects. In Fort Collins it can be traced to a movement called Go Topless Fort Collins, headed by an individual with a quarter-inch buzz cut who claims to represent the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transsexual, Queer, Intersex (!!) and Asexual (LGBTQIA) community. Although one hesitates to label this person a woman for fear of violating his/her/its right to gender fluidity, her name, Brittiany Hoagland, gives a clue. That and her statement to news media that “We want to have topless equality in Fort Collins, so this way we can let women…and the LGBTQIA community have the autonomy that men have any other day.”

So this is yet another tentacle of the bizarre subset of humans who are trying to convince everyone that men and women are in fact the same. Not just equal, but identical. Their war on DNA’s gender imperative is the latest assault on the values and traditional morality of most of the American people. Bitter clingers, deplorables, normal humans, whatever nasty epithet the DNA-deniers choose to call us, we are the majority of Americans.

This Propaganda Is a Bridge Way Too Far

We are not idiots. Real life has taught us that men and women are very different in many ways, especially in body parts. So despite headlines like “Transgender Man Gives Birth to Baby Boy” and accompanying photos of a jolly, laughing bearded person exposing a huge pregnant tummy, we know that babies only emerge from a woman’s body part called a uterus. Although the article uses the pronoun “he” and “him” when referring to Trystan Reese, who gave birth last summer in Portland, Oregon, we know that no man has ever had a baby and to pretend otherwise is demented nonsense.

This transgender woman knows that, too. That’s why Trystan stopped taking the male hormone testosterone after deciding to become pregnant. That’s why although she may have a beard she retained fully functioning fallopian tubes plus a babymaker uterus. That’s why she also possessed the additional female equipment to have perfectly normal sex (in the sense of inserting tab A into aperture B) with her anatomically correct male partner, Biff Chaplow.

In a video on social media (what else!) this confused woman reveals she has no idea what she is revealing, perhaps sadly predictable for someone who began “transitioning” from female to male at the immature and naturally confused adolescent age of 14.

“I’ve never wished or wanted to be assigned male at birth or to have my body match up exactly with that of my partner, who was assigned male at birth,” Reese said. “I’m okay being trans. I think it’s kind of awesome, actually, and I’ve never wanted my body to be different…I’m okay being a man who has a uterus and has the capability of carrying a baby.”

Wowsers. This is a person who has lost the basic intellectual honesty to admit that while testosterone can grow you a beard, only your original DNA can grow you a uterus. And if you have a uterus, you’re not a man. This unfortunate new “mom” has been lauded as a gender equality pioneer, but sadly would be the bearded lady in a circus sideshow, had not lefties also hounded the circus out of existence.

The Inconsistencies Are Too Much to Countenance

The alternative “culture” wants us to believe women have a terrific future if they pretend to be men, but real men with their original man-DNA are vicious feral beasts who can’t help preying on women. For years now, male students at colleges across the country have been required to take classes accusing them of “toxic masculinity” and listen to lectures that blame maleness for all the evils of this world, including “hyper-masculinized sporting culture” (football?), massacres of small children, and the mass murder at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando, Florida.

Accused of being rapists-in-training simply because they are male, college men can be required to sign a “contract” with a prospective date, spelling out the sexual limits of their as-yet-nonexistent relationship. Everyone agrees that an abuser must face legal justice. But men now know that dating can get them into serious trouble since women, all women, must be believed.

In a twinkling, the juicy one-nighter hook-up on campus has become a game of jeopardy in which the male risks sexual assault allegations and possible jail time if his date takes offense to even an unwelcome kiss. The mad frenzy driving the current testosterone-shaming is capturing normal dating, not just vile sexually exploitive behavior, in its net.

Setting men and women against each other in a gender cage match destroys trust and love between the sexes, even while the war cry of the marching radicals is “love and peace.” If men are demonic woman-abusers, there’s no difference between the male and female breast, biology is meaningless, men can give birth, and “gender identity” is determined by shifting individual choice not DNA, the very bricks upon which the society is built—faith, family, and rationality—are crumbling.

Radical anti-traditionalist secularists are intent on upending the moral and biological reality that most of humanity has accepted for millennia. “Fundamentally transforming America” is still their ruling imperative. As George Orwell put it in his novel 1984, “The Party told you to reject the evidence of your eyes and ears. It was their final, most essential command.” The Party today is the leftist counter-culture elites: the academicians, the left-media’s talking heads, the icons in film and music. All of them demonize normalcy and common sense.
