For those of you who haven't been paying attention, it is legal for a woman to go topless in the state of New York. Many like to remind the citizens of New York by being topless in public, a protest not against the law but against dominant social mores.
Yesterday was the 20th anniversary of the ruling that made toplessness legal in N.Y. Holly Van Voast, a prominent topless reminder-er, went to the Hooters in Times Square to acknowledge this, boobs out. Hooters, though it is a breastaurant, does not feature actual toplessness.
As is often the case when Van Voast does her thing, she was arrested and taken—by ambulance—where she was given a mental evaluation. The doctor had no idea that what Van Voast was doing was legal. Great.
Again, it's perfectly legal. So, everybody chill.
