One might think they'd have more liberal attitudes about such matters over here in Sweden, but a woman's right to appear topless at public pools has recently became an issue after two girls were asked to cover up. It's not so much an issue at public beaches. One sees plenty of topless female sunbathers there, but for some reason that escapes me, appearing topless at a pool is different than at a beach. :shrug One can't really use, "protecting the delicate sensibilities of children and the elderly" as a reason because there are plenty of families with young (usually naked) children and grandmotherly types at both places, so I just don't see what the difference is. The issue is discussed in this article. Personally I think it's about time we got over our hangups about breasts and nude bodies in general. How come men can expose their nipples and women can't? What's wrong with women's nipples? Nipples are not genitalia. Any thoughts or opinions?
