America is the ‘land of the free’ but Canadians can go topless

with 2 comments

America prides itself on freedom, yet Canada is a country where women have the right to go topless.

In seeing the recent protests sponsored by, we see the ridiculousness of men wearing bikini tops to show the other extreme of equality.

The women who were protesting in Chicago painted the “offending area” as to not risk arrest. Arguing that companies should be free of regulation, yet women don’t have an equal right to go without a shirt in hot weather — well, that isn’t freedom.

More on this and the upcoming protests in Canada on Sunday, here via our sister blog at

  1. Women can be topless ONLY in Ontario. It’s also legal to be topless in New York.

    • I have heard that it is only in Ontario, but haven’t had that confirmed. Obviously, there are beaches elsewhere in Canada, such as Wreck’s Beach in Vancouver, where you can go au naturel.
