New Jersey Declares Women's Breasts Immoral

Phoenix Feeley, the owner of the offending (and, according to NJ, offensive) mammaries.

I'm filing this one under, "Don't we have more important things to worry about, people?"

The ridiculous story, via Jezebel, and as reported by NJ.com:
A New York City woman fighting for her right to leave her shirt at home and go topless in public must cover up while in New Jersey, a state appeals panel ruled today.

Phoenix Feeley, 31, was twice arrested and charged by Spring Lake police in 2008 after she refused to put on a shirt while sunbathing at a beach, and then again took off a shirt given to her by police after being released.

She appealed the charges, arguing that if men are allowed to be in public without a shirt, women should be allowed to be in public without a shirt as well. But the court disagreed.

In their ruling, the judges argued there was no constitutional right for women to appear topless at a public beach, and that covering the female breast is important to safeguard "the public's moral sensibilities."
That's right, dear women readers - the State of NJ has declared that those boobs of yours offend the public's moral sensibilities, so you'd better keep those WMDs covered up - for the children, or something, I'm sure. On the other hand, men's breasts, no matter how small, large, or flabby, pose no threat to the moral order, it seems.

This is not the first time that Feeley's breasts have run afoul of the law - though last time this happened (in NY), she won. Given the evidence provided me by Jersey Shore, I'm rather shocked that NJ judges are more prudish than NY judges, but oh well. I hope the next legal battle Feeley's chest faces is in Conneticut - somehow I feel that she'll find more sympathetic ears there than in Pennsylvania.
