    Women can swim topless in Barcelona as city rules it would be sex discrimination to force them to cover up

    • Group said it was against the law to tell a woman to cover up and wear both parts of her bikini - and now Barcelona city council chiefs have agreed
    • One of Spain's biggest cities has been forced to admit that women are allowed to swim topless in any of its municipal pools because of the laws over 'gender dress'
    Barcelona city council has ruled that women are allowed to swim topless in any of its municipal indoor or outdoor pools because of the laws over 'gender dress'.

    The council issued a statement confirming the situation as a result of a complaint lodged by the campaign group 'Mugrons Lliures' of Catalonia.

    Protesters claimed one woman was told to cover up and wear both parts of her bikini but said this was against the law. City leaders have now agreed.

    The authority has ruled that the pools of Barcelona must not discriminate if a woman wants to swim topless because men do the same and they cannot differentiate between bikini bottoms and swimming trunks.

    Good. It makes no sense that women's nipples are any more obscene than a man's. Set them free!

    And yet the only federal beaches where nudity is SPECIFICALLY PROHIBITED are in. . . . . . mAssachusetts. We are worried about guns that no one cares about and naked bodies on beaches that none of these fat yentas even go to.

    National Sea Shore everywhere else has a no-policy or a designated area, IIRC. Not CCNS. The only place in MAss to really "legally" go swim nude is Gay Head b/c it's not quite federal property. Just stay on the beach and off the cliffs. And TRY not to be flaunting your nakedidity to the mAsses up on the cliffs with binocs. LOL

    Oh, FWIW, the major reason we have laws against nude beaches in MA wasn't the nudity actually. It was the scores of gawkers back in the 70's. LOL.

    Most of the MV nudists hide behind the cliffs and aren't visible from the tourist area at the top. You have to walk like an hour from the parking lot to get a better view at the beach with them.

    Back in the day - 25 or so years ago before Clinton and noBama decided to make MV the go-to destination, my wife and I rented a house on MV for a week between Memorial and FOJ. It was a quiet week. There are, like, 3 parking spots next to the walkway to the beach. We went 3 times that week, got the parking spot each time.

    Before then, we'd catch the bus and walk down from the top of the hill. It was a long walk but totally worth it. Haven't been in 24 years. It was a treat. My 3 kids look at us like we are crazy. All 3 of them are prudes. With a wild woman for a mom. Strange stuff.

    we go to Gunnison a couple of times a year, meet friends from NJ and stay with them. Our kids asked if we were swingers? [rofl]

    Was there a few years ago in the summer.
    I didn't hit the beach, but I will next time.
    Plenty of hot women driving motor bikes and scooters, scantly clad, so the beach should be good.
    I would head down at lunch time.
    When in Niece France many moons ago, the biz women would go to the beach at lunch and sun bathe topless and go back to work. We made it a point to grab lunch at the beach.

    I'm sure there is an appropriate meme for that, with caption "that moment you learn your parents are singers".

    Must have been nice. I was fishing at the nude beach in Nantucket early one morning and when the people started to show up, it was no day at the beach. 60 year olds with no shame.

    Yup. My mother, God bless her, in her 80’s, still jokes that she doesn’t need any plastic surgery on her face, all she has to do is take off her bra and her face straightens right out. lol She said it not me. This is why I drink.

    I visited Barcelona for two weeks when I was around 22 years old or so. Did an overnight trip to Majorca with a girl I was visiting. She asked me to go find a good spot on the beach in the morning. I go out there and it's completely empty so I grab a spot right in the middle of the beach. Not five minutes later do four smoking german girls come sit ten feet away from me and they are topless. I did my best to convince the girl I was with that I was there first when she saw me out there, but she did not believe me. Spain was a good time.

    Yep, been to Malaga and Torremolinos. Neg rep to you for not confirming that they are all old and ugly and there is zero reason to go. [wink]

    Okay now I need to know where this is. A quick duck duck go search came up empty. I wanted to take my wife to Nantucket for her first time there, and this would make a good destination.
