In response to this upcoming event.
I have a tip for you Andrea: if you are tired of being gawked at when you take off your top to swim at the river, try putting it back on. Notice how fewer men stare at you when your nipples are hidden from the naked eye?
As a Vancouver resident, I unfortunately encounter boobs in public too often. And I can attest that when women show them off at family beaches or rollerblading on the seawall, there is a tension in the air that cannot be tamed. As a guy who does not struggle at all with pornography or some run-away sex drive, topless women in public make me feel awkward, extremely uncomfortable, and ashamed that I feel compelled to stare.
Vancouver has clothing-optional Wreck Beach for those who wish to parade their parts in the open. I wish that nudity was contained to that location and never had to disrupt my thoughts.
No matter how hard you try, Ontario, women’s boobs in plain sight will always bring out the carnal side of men. We just weren’t created the same as women. As the hated/loved American political pundit Ann Coulter says: “Naked men don’t cause women to masturbate.” I wish seeing naked women didn’t cause this urge in men.
So for you women in Guelph that want to live in an equal society where you are not seen as sex objects, save your boobs for the bedroom. Because I promise that most of the men that come to watch your topless parade will leave with unholy thoughts about you that you may not wish for.
