    Here's A Protest I FULLY Support!

    http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,312454,00.html

    STOCKHOLM, Sweden
    A group of Swedish women is making waves by taking their tops off at public swimming pools in a protest against what they call gender-biased rules on swim wear.

    About 40 women have joined the network and staged topless protests in at least three cities, said Sanna Ferm, 22, one of the founders of the group called Bara Brost, or Bare Breasts.
    "The purpose of the campaign is to start a debate about why women's bodies are sexualized," Ferm said Wednesday.
    She said the fact that men can be bare-chested in public swimming pools but not women is "a concrete example of how women have fewer rights than men."
    Reactions from other swimmers have ranged from support and encouragement to anger and even indifference, she said.
    The network was formed after two women who were swimming topless in a public swimming pool in Uppsala, north of Stockholm, were asked to cover up or leave.
    Women can sunbathe topless in the summertime at beaches around Sweden, which is known for its relaxed attitude toward nudity, but they are required to wear tops at public swimming pools.
    Inger Groteblad, a manager at the swimming facility in Uppsala, said it was a matter of security.
    "We want to make sure that girls don't get subjected to sexual harassment," she was quoted as saying by tabloid Aftonbladet.
    The women have filed a complaint against the facility to Sweden's Equal Opportunities Ombudsman

    i agree with it in principle, but in reality the women who usually get involved with this stuff are the ones you do NOT want to see naked.

    You don't have to go to Sweden, just go to Las Vegas. Numerous hotels now have topless pool areas............

    Topless pools in Vegas
    Yes, I know we're on a Vegas kick this week, but every year it's a more sizzling convention and tourist destination, and I'm currently working on a story for USA TODAY about tourist highjinks there.

    Did you know that topless sunbathing is a growing trend in Sin City (it's usually more delicately referred to as "European-style" sunbathing)? Some top hotels have separate pools for this activity, limiting them to adults and often charging an admission fee.

    Caesars Palace has a Venus pool area; Mandalay Bay has Moorea Beach; Wynn Las Vegas has a European-style pool area. Now there's a lot of buzz about the Bare pool lounge at the Mirage. It promises a DJ, private daybeds, and you can book it at night for private parties.

    Americans have historically been more sqeamish about topless sunbathing than our brethren across the Atlantic. What do Hotsheeters think of the trend?

    When we were in Vegas I wanted to go to Bare, but I probably would have had to bail Ender out of jail.

    Obviously you don't know men. I quote Ron White: "Once you've seen one woman naked, you pretty much want to see the rest of 'em naked."

    "We want to make sure that girls don't get subjected to sexual harassment,"
    Ok, back to topic for a sec, but to control what GUYS do, they're making the WOMEN cover up? How about ejecting the ones doing the harassing, instead?
