Mae West, original name Mary Jane West, (born August 17, 1893, Brooklyn, New York, U.S.—died November 22, 1980, Los Angeles, California), American stage and film actress, a sex symbol whose frank sensuality, languid postures, and blasé wisecracking became her trademarks.
Mae West wrote and starred in a 1926 play called SEX. She spent 10 days in jail because the authorities thought it was obscene.
This happened 2 1/2 years ago in Colorado. Please note Fort Collins is a college town CSU. Yippe! It's ironic how women's rights lead to men's pleasures. We all remember the braless 70's.
Fort Collins in Colorado is stirring up national controversy after its decision on Friday to abandon its defense of a 2107 city ordinance banning women from going topless in public, which the city felt was needed to protect children.
News outlets say that the decision will now allow girls over the age of 10 to bare their breasts in 6 states – Wyoming, Colorado, Utah, Kansas, New Mexico and Oklahoma.
As expected, public comments have ranged from disgust, to support, to fear to what does it matter?
The brouhaha stems from a lawsuit filed by “Free the Nipple” movement activists, Brit Hoagland and Samantha Six, who sought to overturn a city ordinance forbidding them to expose their breasts in public.
