You Are Now Free to Bare Your Boobs on This Maryland Beach

You Are Now Free to Bare Your Boobs on This Maryland Beach”

So late a year ago, a local advocate asked the State's Attorney to look at the laws about toplessness on Ocean City's beaches, and come to a firm conclusion on the matter.

He, in turn, asked Maryland's attorney general for an opinion but officials haven't heard back. Butch Arbin, the head of Ocean City Beach Patrol, workers should document complaints of toplessness, but they shouldn't approach topless women - even if beachgoers request it.

Covington argues that her request is covered under Maryland constitution's "absolute prohibition" of gender classification, which she says provides "no justification for treating genders differently when making or enforcing law, at the state or local level".

The popular vacation destination's beach patrol has been instructed not to bother women who choose to go topless this summer, CBS Baltimore reports. The law was unclear, so Meehan asked the state's attorney general for an opinion.

Ireland's ruling Fine Gael party set to announce new leader
Ireland is on the cusp of electing its first gay premier after the ruling Fine Gael party revealed its new leader, Leo Varadkar . The current minister for social protection is also openly gay and the son of a Hindu immigrant father who was born in India.

According to a memo from Capt.

"For the 44 years I've been guarding the beach in Ocean City, when we'd see people topless on the beach we would just tell them, 'Hey, you can't do that, '" said Arbin in an interview with WBOC 16. "She's raising an argument that because men are allowed to go bare-chested so are women should be allowed to go bare-chested".

A battle over bare breasts at the beach is brewing in Maryland where lifeguards have been told to, in effect, look the other way when it comes to topless sunbathing by women. "While we respect Ms. Covington's desire to express what rights she believes she may have, Ocean City is a family resort and we intend to do whatever is within our ability to also protect the rights of those families".

Ocean City, on Maryland's Eastern Shore, is a major beach destination for folks in the mid-Atlantic states. He says he's trying to respond to all these emails personally.
