On yer bikes, boobs?

As expected, Auckland City Council’s attempt to get an injunction preventing the “Boobs on Bikes” parade was unscussessful.

The Herald report states that the Judge, “said although some councillors may deem the parade to be offensive, she did not agree, even if it was tacky.” Further:

“Females walking down the street bare-breasted was not unlawful. But she added her decision was made by considering the law not morals.”

It sounds as though the Judge missed the point. The reason why many of us find the parade “offensive” is because it celebrates the exploitation of women as sexual objects.

It is not about whether or not it is immoral per se for women to bare their breasts in public. I personally would be very pleased if women could, for instance, breast-feed their babies in public without anybody giving it a second thought.

The christian right may be offended by the public display of women’s breasts, but that’s their problem.

That the pornographer organising the event thought that the decision was “incredibly balanced and well thought out and complete” says it all.

    The parade is clearly nothing but an advertisement for Steve Crow’s pornographic empire. Why the judge cannot see that this is offensive is beyond me. If there was a billboard featuring bare-breasted women advertising Crow’s expo he would have had to take it down in a flash.

    Females walking down the street bare-breasted was not unlawful.
    But I bet if my wife stripped off her top and walked down Queen street, the police would be down on her like a ton of bricks.

    Of course. But that’s not indecent except by some strange Victorian standard. That is a natural part of life and is certainly not an invite for blokes to ogle them like they were pieces of meat. The offense is in the intent.

    Yeah, MacDoc, I wondered about the statement “Females walking down the street bare-breasted was not unlawful.” You’d expect the judge to know the law.
