topless ruling
(Mike Allen)

The above situation is what the U.S. 10th Circuit Court of Appeals addressed with its recent topless ruling, right? OK, it wasn’t, but the decision is a small step toward bringing everyone onto an even playing field when it comes to wearing a shirt in public, or not. Alas, Oklahoma Attorney General Mike Hunter wants to make sure you know state and local nudity laws still apply, so perhaps stick to sports cars if you don’t have a good lawyer.

As could be expected, the subject has been a hot topic on social media, and Tulsa and Oklahoma City have each had topless skating or scootering events in recent days. In Oklahoma City, topless riders were escorted by police. In Tulsa, an event organizer told News 6 that times are changing.

“I never in a million years would have thought legal marijuana and then, like, toplessness being allowed,” said Lex Taylor.

But in the same piece, a man named James Allen Firth expressed his frustration and was recorded on a megaphone yelling, “It is disgraceful that there is nekkid women in this park right now!”

“Me having two daughters of my own and actually visiting this park on several occasions, it bears to mind a possible nightmarish reality that is literally taking place right before our very eyes,” he told the TV station.

Admittedly, this whole situation is not something I’ve given a lot of thought to over the years, perhaps because it didn’t affect me directly. But judging from the conversations I’ve seen among everyday people, this will take some time to adjust to no matter the context.
