LABSN Editor’s Note: This is from 2014, but I just found it and thought it was interesting. The writer, Lili Boisvert, argues the right of women to go topless in public in a very logical, calm manner.
If we combine heterosexual women and homosexual men, there’s a large percentage of the population that is attracted to men’s, not women’s bodies.
So why is it OK for men to go topless, but not women? Does it mean that women’s and gay men’s desires are worth less than those of heterosexual men?
LABSN Editor’s Note: Since Felicity Jones closed down the Young Naturists America blog last year, she has started a personal blog on “naturism, censorship, topfree equality, body image and other fun topics.” Here’s one of the first she posted and the follow-up interviews can be found on her blog.

LABSN Editor’s Note: I thought this take on how a news item is reported was very important. FAIR has a reputation for making news reporters think about what they write from a different point of view.
These stories are typically shared for the purposes of poor-shaming, typically under the guise of inspirational life advice. A healthy press would take these anecdotes of “can do” spirit and ask bigger questions, like why are these people forced into such absurd hardship?

Amanda Saab was the first Muslim woman in hijab to appear on a reality TV cooking show in the US. Now, she is inviting total strangers to her home and cooking them meals. She says it’s one way that might help bring together people from different sides of the political spectrum.
LABSN Editor’s Note: I just wanted to share this.
