As the Internet Buzzes About 6 States Going Topless, In Kansas it is Legal to Walk Around Totally Naked

As women’s rights activists celebrate a victory that “freed the nipple” in Colorado, and 5 other states, an adjacent state has no laws against walking around totally nude in public.

More on that in a moment.

First a refresher on Colorado which is now one of 6 states to allow women to go topless in public places…

(KUTV) – A federal court ruling over a ban on women going topless in public has essentially made it legal for women to go topless in Utah, Colorado, Wyoming, New Mexico, Kansas, and Oklahoma, according to news outlets.

CBS affiliate KUTV reports that the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals, which is over those six states, struck down a topless ban in Ft. Collins, Colo. after two women sued the city for the right to go topless in public.

Since Ft. Collins is not appealing the decision (the next step would be the Supreme Court), that means topless bans in those six states are no longer enforceable.

The lawsuit was brought by two women who are part of the #FreeTheNipple movement on social media, specifically Instagram, which does not allow photos of exposed breasts.

Plaintiffs Brit Hoagland and Samantha Six sued Ft. Collins, saying that being able to take off their shirts in public is their right, and is a step towards gender equality.

Hoagland told the media outlet:

“Everybody should be able to be comfortable on a hot day and if that means taking their shirt of so be it. No matter how you look, you should have the same freedom at the person next to you. And it’s also about equality. Addressing small parts of inequality can make a big difference in how people are treated on a day to day basis, and I thought free the nipple was just one small step closer to how it should be.”

Attorney Andy McNulty, who is representing Hoagland and Six says topless bans are attacks on equal rights.

After the ruling by the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals, the city decided not to push the matter to the Supreme Court.

Deputy Director of Information for the city of Fort Collins Tyler Marr said:

“I think the council as they articulated in their 4-3 vote, really just thought as a matter of priority, no guarantee of success or that the Supreme Court would even take it up, that the money was just better spent on other city priorities.”

“We made a huge impact way beyond Fort Collins, and we were just trying to start a conversation,” Hoagland told KGUN. “And that conversation reached to so many more people. It’s a miraculous achievement I didn’t think I would see in my lifetime let alone so soon.”
