As you can clearly see I feared this and THAT was the reason I ‘soured’ on the ‘movement’.

So let me try to explain AGAIN as to why I feared this would happen and why that put me at odds with those that thought they were onto a good thing.
CURRENTLY New Hampshire, like most other States, do NOT have any State-level laws precluding toplessness.
So the female nipple was and still is FREE (bar some silly, unenforceable local ordinances, e.g., Gilford beach).
When the New Hampshire ‘Free The Nipple‘ movement came to be WE did NOT know that there were NO State Laws against toplessness. We assumed that there must be.
Then we FOUND OUT.
And as far as I was concerned that turned everything on its head.
No laws meant that the nipple was FREE.
PROTESTING and asking it to be FREED — when it was already FREE — was just asking for trouble.
That was my issue, my problem and my fear.
Protesting against something that was already FREE was STUPID.
NOW if these new laws come into force yes there will be something to protest.
But what a shame.
