It’s great to hear of a neighborhood council taking positive steps concerning nudity. The Venice Beach neighborhood council has voted allow topless sunbathing. Melissa Diner, who proposed the measure, sees the issue as a rights issue, that is that women should have the same rights as men. This is the good news part of the story.
The measure still needs the approval of the city of Los Angeles, which includes Venice Beach.
Reading the story in the LA Times http://www.latimes.com/local/california/la-me-topless-venice-20150423-story.html, I was very surprised at the bias the news article took against the proposal. This is the bad news part of the story.
