Topless Women Marching To Times Square For Topless Day
Today is National Go Topless Day, "a celebration of women's legal right to bare their breasts in public." In NYC, topless women were hanging out in Bryant Park and Times Square all afternoon.
Please note: These bare breasted women are a bit confused. There is no "right" to bare breasts, it is entirely a question of property rights. From a libertarian perspective, one should be allowed to set whatever rules one wants on one's property relative to bare breasts. If a property is owned by a church, which doesn't want bare breasted women on its property, then so be it. If a strip club has no objections to bare breasted women, that is fine also.
As for public property, that is government controlled property, the property should be put into the hands of the private sector poste haste. What these protesters are really proving is that there is no property "of the people." You can't have it both ways, a bare breasted area that is also a sector where bare breasts are not allowed. Property is always controlled by some individual or group. Land that is part of the private sector recognizes this fact. "Public" property that belongs to everyone is a myth Rules on "public" property are set by those who have the most influence and the rules tend to be set across the board for all public property, as opposed to the private sector, which provides a broad spectrum of choices across the spectrum.
