Exactly. I don't remember any of my male teachers walking around the classroom without a shirt

I would imagine that anywhere a topless a male would be innapropriate (restaurants, schools, church, the workplace), a topless female would also be innapropriate.

My 12th grade math teacher, she had clothes on and that did not stop my mind from wandering

What is it exactly about the breast that you are afraid of to the point, that you are saying these women are abusing womens rights?

Because the highest court in Ontario was interpreting a Canadian federal law, this case has set an important precedent for all of the other provinces in Canada. Attempts to change the law to re-criminalize women have not been supported by Canadian voters."

I have seen very few women exercise their rights, but it is nice to know that we can if we choose to.

So as far as you know, there have been no packs of topless women riding the subways or roaming unchecked through the streets of Toronto? None of your coworkers have shown up for work sans blouse?

Well, as pointed out, it's highly unlikely it ever will happen in a high school to begin with, 'cause you don't see males walking around shirtless (I do think it's dumb, though, that some schools allow guys to wear tank tops, but girls can't), so I highly doubt there'll be some increase in women doing so. But if a high school did allow people, both male and female, to walk around like that, honestly, it's their school, that's up to them how they want to handle it. Any consequences that would result would still not necessarily be the woman's fault.

As stated in this thread, I don't understand what people are so scared of, also. And this is not an "abuse" of women's rights, either-if guys can walk around topless and not get flak for it, girls should be able to as well. As that part from the article I quoted said, it's certainly not our fault that our bodies developed the way they did. Besides that, from all the times chests are blurred out on TV, it seems the nipple specifically is the offending portion...well, guys show their nipples all the time and nobody says a word there.

By the way, there is a restaurant somewhere in New York City that allows people the choice of going there with or without clothing on.
