Nip it! Nip it in the bud!

Supreme Court won't consider topless bans

WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court said Monday that it will not take up a challenge to a New Hampshire city ordinance banning women from appearing topless in public.

A group with the motto "Free The Nipple" argued that the law violates the Constitution by treating men and women differently.

The legal dispute began in 2016 when Ginger Pierro did her yoga exercises topless at a lakeside beach in Laconia, New Hampshire, and was arrested for violating the city ordinance banning public nudity. It banned, among other things, "the showing of the female breast with less than a fully opaque covering any part of the nipple."

Three days later two other women, Heidi Lilley and Kia Sinclair, went to the same beach, appearing topless to protest the arrest. They, too, were charged with violating the nudity law.

3. It's purple*. Trump beat Hillary there 53 - 41

Comparing an ordinance that requires covered nipples to requiring burkas is ridiculous.


* not the nipple (purple nurple)

6. Thats hardly a blue area.

That is the heart of the reddest part of NH - which is far from a solid blue state.

8. They won't consider it

because they know to remain consistent with the law they would like have to rule in a way that would make a lot of country upset.
