Here at Asylum, we've long been fans of all things that go topless in the summer: convertibles, domed stadiums, PETA protesters and other naked activists
One such activist in Ashland, OR, who is often seen riding around on her bicycle topless, has said that she's planning to attend her town's annual Fourth of July parade wearing only a G-string made out of hemp
. The Chamber of Commerce has said the plan is against the rules since the parade is a family celebration. But Jen Moss says if they bar her from the festivities, she'll sue for her right to rock out with her boobs out.
Despite the parade's family-friendly rules, the town has fairly lax nudity laws that actually allow for public toplessness. The only stipulation is that citizens are required to cover their genitalia in a city park or the downtown commercial district.
On Moss' side is City Council member Eric Navickas, who said it was "an interesting commentary on our society that we're willing to tolerate dead bodies through our aggressive foreign policy from the war, but not healthy, naked bodies."
