Ocean City, Md., could become bare-breasted battleground for topless rights (via

This beach town that bills itself as “America’s finest family resort” suddenly found itself exposed to topless sunbathing last week. Now, it risks becoming a bare-breasted battleground for female topless rights.

So to protect its family-friendly image, carefully crafted by $6.6 million in annual marketing, Ocean City crafted itself a fig leaf in the form of a hurriedly passed emergency ordinance fining females who go bare-chested up to $1,000.

The new ordinance received newfound legal cover Thursday from a long-awaited legal opinion by the Maryland Attorney General, saying that requiring women to cover their breasts and not men doesn’t violate the U.S. or state constitutions.
