You Gotta Fight...

...for your right, to flash people!

As a Ventura County public defender, Liana Johnsson has handled many life-changing cases, but her biggest public crusade these days has been going topless.

For months, Johnsson has been fighting to allow topless women at California beaches and parks, and now the issue has made its way to the Capitol.

A group of lawyers, at Johnsson's request, has asked the Legislature to make topless sunbathing legal, saying the ban is the last criminal sanction that treats women differently than men.

The new movement has urgency: Because of a December court ruling, Johnsson and other attorneys contend, women convicted of indecent exposure could find themselves listed as sex offenders under Megan's Law, alongside rapists and child molesters.

"At some point, men's breasts became liberated and women's didn't," Johnsson said Friday.

You Said

that is the best initiative to hit california lawmakers since legalizing medicinal marijuana. this is one petition I would definitely sign. I, for one, have always felt bad for those women who were forced, against their will, to wear bikini tops on the beach despite the effect the tan lines would have on their stripping careers.
