Transgender Men Go Topless at Delaware Beach -- and Police Can't Do a Thing
REHOBOTH BEACH, Del. -- Rehoboth Beach in Delaware isn't a topless beach -- but a few transgender men caused a stir by treating it like one.

Police say passers-by complained after the men removed their tops and revealed their surgically enhanced breasts over Memorial Day weekend. A lifeguard asked them to put their tops back on. The men initially refused, but covered up before police arrived.

Even if they hadn't, though, Police Chief Keith Banks notes the men were doing nothing illegal. Since they have male genitalia, they can't be charged with indecent exposure for showing their breasts. Banks says there's no need for a specific law to address the issue.
full of disturbing wtf awesome.

public decency is certainly having its limits re-defined here. but, just b/c it makes me/you sick, is that reason enough to ban? and rehoboth isn't a typical family friendly beach, or at least it wasn't last time i lived back east, so to happen here is only a little shocking, and only briefly.

the kind of skin i'd want to look at, i'm not allowed to look at (if i'm to take my marriage srsly), so should i want to ban everyone to make like-minded people happy? buy my own beach?

there should be a sol'n only if there's a problem, and only if it's more than my problem, right?

perhaps one sol'n is to give every beach goer a bp cuff w/ gps, and when it spikes over 80 bpm w/o movement (assumption being you're not swimming or throwing the football), you're escorted off the property.
Ya know, this country and fundamentalist Muslim countries are the only ones left in the world where topless women at the beach are an issue. Just sayin'.
umm...no

OMFG, my child might see BOOOOOOOBIES!!!! It will be a horrible and traumatic experience, since I've taught him/her that bodies were inherently disgusting, obscene and sexual in nature and should be covered up at all times. The sight of an areola is a sign of the degradation of our X-tian society, and just another step to a society where women are actually treated as equals instead of the sexualized, objectified things that they are.

the ones that want to ban it are probably just secretly turned on by it.




men with boobs that is.

Adelaide is a country?? FYI, Australia in general allows topless sunbathing. And you had to go to Romania, India and China as examples of 1st world countries that don't allow women to go topless?

I'm from NY, the only state in the country where women are allowed to go topless (as long as it's non-sexual in nature). Don't really see what the big deal is...
i honestly don't have a problem taking my family to the beach & having my daughter see this. i hope i would have the same pov if i had a son, but just don't know.

but in the same way that i shouldn't be expected to foist my value system on you, nor should you be accommodated at my expense.

i believe far more disturbing imagery is the cellulite-ridden mamasita/abuelita who's still puttin' it out there, or the germanic pensioner sporting plum smugglers, but those are [unfortunately] outside the scope of law.

so my Qs are:
- are you ok w/ legal protection of exposure of mid-op boobs?
- are you ok w/ junk-clinging fabric, esp if someone's @ half-mast+?

i hope you can set aside the nit-picking & see my point that this is an issue regardless of national religious identity, if any. china is notorious for human rights abuses, which certainly do not stop at controlling decency, as it's a distraction that hurts the state & well-being of society, such that it is. i would expect the same in myanmar & other closed countries.

it's not about religion, but attempts to wrest control & individual freedoms.
you would be foolish to argue this.

and other countries you may hold as paragons of virtue still have public decency laws, which i hope you would extol. i don't know what's so transcendent about the boundary of the beach property, but irreligious puritanical types have hashed this out before us, apparently

I vote all American women should walk around shirtless for one month this summer so everybody can get over the titties already. Sure they are fun, but you can milk sheep and the cowboys have fun with them. Should we ban sheep?

Men with boobs could be much more traumatic than regular boobs.

What if you saw a pair of tits and thought they were hot. What if later you found out they were on a man!

Not cool.

We need to have some sort of laws to protect ourselves from this.
