Been growing up spending my summers in southern France at the beach. Barely anyone was wearing tops there.Could be worse than bare butt cheeks. Just look at what Nantucket is doing...
On Tuesday, Nantucket approved a measure allowing women to go topless on all of the town’s beaches (men were, not surprisingly, already permitted to do so). In the U.S., the fight for gender equality in laws that allow men, but not women, to bare their chests in public has been raging for decades.www.forbes.com
I think there may be a practical issue, as well. A bathing suit is a layer of protection between you and a slide. I honestly can't imagine a body slide in a thong.
Beyond that, Aquatica is a a for-profit business and has an obvious interest in setting policies that are in keeping with general societal norms.
I was at the beach a few weekends ago and noticed a few young women wearing thongs that barely exist (from the back it looks like they're not wearing anything). I saw this once a couple of years ago but it seems to have become a fashion trend. No problem at the beach but I agree with @Nicole that for a water slide you might want something more protective that provides addtional cover. Regarding the article, up to 3 years in prison for going topless seems a little excessive. I have to wonder what the judges criteria is for a full sentence of three years.
Sounds like someone is giving our political system too much credit.I'd think that if that's on the books it's either unenforceable or there's a process in place to prevent the judge from discriminating based on how attractive they find the defendant (consciously or otherwise).
