NYC no longer to arrest Topless Women

I have never understood America’s preoccupation with sex juxtaposed with its prudery regarding sex. Americans can’t seem to decide if they want to see nudity or want it all covered up. Men can walk around without a shirt but let a woman do the same thing and people freak out. Why??? It is idiotic to […]
