IF as a result of the well intended “Free the Female Nipple” movement emancipation event planned for Sunday, August 23rd, 2015, at Hampton Beach, New Hampshire, new laws are enacted to restrict toplessness in N.H. it would be a crying shame.

That is my fear now. We could see a vicious backlash. Today, other than in Laconia with its City-specific ordinance, toplessness is not against the law — as befits the “Live Free, Or Die” State.

I would be so upset if they start putting caveats or limits on the toplessness laws — specially SINCE folks never really got around to enjoying what the law provides.

Something about the Hampton event always seemed incongruous to me. It would have made huge sense if female toplessness was against the law. But an event like that when there is no law against it is asking for attention — and in this case potential trouble.

They could probably get some laws passed in Concord, in 2016, given the current makeup of the legislature. I would really like to know where Governor Maggie Hassan stands on this. I would have tried to get her support before the event.

To me, ‘we’ should have just pushed the envelope on the permitted toplessness all across the state every day. In Europe you go to a beach or a park and you are likely to see topless women — maybe even folks, of both genders, nude. No fuss. No big deal. That is what the good ladies should have done in New Hampshire. A gradual but concerted effort to introduce and integrate toplessness in the state.

Any backlash we get will be because of the SHOCK-VALUE of the event — which is what the organizers are hoping for. Ironic. C’est la vie. The die is cast.

This letter, protesting the Hampton event is interesting in that it says what I think.
We should have gone for a gradual integration.
