Caribana's “topless” ladies march ignores fact that #MeToo still rules

David MenziesMission Specialist

At the Caribana Parade last weekend, a group of women decided to do something completely different: they marched topless.

In the name of body-positivity or something, Toronto photographer Yvonne Stanley wanted to “spark a conversation” about healthier body images with the display. In the age of #MeToo, no man looking to keep his job will take her up on the offer.

Women in Ontario have had the legal right to go topless since 1996 when the Ontario Court of Appeal overturned a previous conviction against Gwen Jacobs, but as noted by the CBC... women don't care to exercise that right.

Going bare breasted may be legal, but is it smart? Besides unless you are an AA cup think of the stretch marks.

Many, many years ago – before I got my Personal Pollution Driving Device – I switched stations in the Montreal Metro. Door opened. I walked inside and took the first available seat. Looked up. There she was, directly opposite me: blond, thin wispy white transparent blouse, no pockets and no bra.

She glared at me before I even noticed what she was and wasn’t wearing. How dare I look at her and her virtually bare breasts. What was I supposed to do? Look down at my feet because she was an exhibitionist?

Its “I can be a liberated woman and show off my body, but how dare you look at my publicly displayed mammalian chest organs!” Sorry, but you can’t have it both ways. The women in that parade and that photographer sound like idiots. Isn’t there a better way to seek attention?

Women like this so called photographer are simply perverse.
Women are as screwed up as men are on the subject of sex and pornography.

David, you are like a breast….I mean a breath of fresh air!
Personally, I couldn’t bare to go topless just to keep myself abreast of the latest trends.

GLENN CRAIG: Trudeau wouldn’t dare march in this parade because he has no style or rhythm. He’s proven that by his embarrassing dancing in India.

Did Trudeau march in this parade? If not does that prove he is racist?

On Parade topless teats tend to get in the way of the knees. Better to truss them up.
