Our friends over at The Frisky reported today on a group of French women who are protesting their right to go topless by attempting to get men at local swimming holes to put on bikini tops. The protest seems to be going well, with some men donning the tops bemusedly and others suggesting that the ladies bare their breasts in the name of equality instead.

The whole story reminded me of when I was in France as a young, naive college student, and got so sunburned that for the one day that I was at a topless beach I couldn’t take my shirt off at all, let alone flaunt my 20-year-old breasts. So sad — such a missed opportunity.

But anyway, what about you? If topless sunbathing were legal here in the states across the board (which I believe it should be, for the record), would you do it? Or would you rather keep the girls under wraps?
