Barcelona City Hall has ordered the withdrawal of any regulation banning the practice of topless bathing at municipal pools.

Until now, each public sports center in the city had a different approach to topless bathing. Some allowed it in the indoor pool while others have confined the practice to certain areas, such as the solarium or to the outdoor pool, restrictions that have been denounced by the women’s organization Mugrons Lliures as gender discrimination.

In response, the Office Against Discrimination has drawn up a report that says, “Imposing rules of dress specifically for women means restricting their freedom of choice and is gender discrimination.”

FWIW, topless is allowed in plenty of public swimming pools all over Spain. AFAIK it's pretty much the rule and not the exception. And generally speaking, wherever there are rules about not allowing it, they are seldomly enforced.

This seems to be a weird hold up that it's catching some attention because it's Barcelona, but progress, I guess.

Last time I was in Barcelona *which was last summer) someone offered me drugs while a a colleague of theirs was feeling me up, and all of this was directly in front of a police officer.

This feels late in so many ways.

Remember I was on the beach playing frissbee with my mum and accidently struck a women topless sunbathing right in the tit. I was like 9 and couldn't stop laughing.

Random anecdote but just reminded me of that.

Good. A women should be allowed to choose what to wear or not to wear.

These responses are embarrassing. They're not going topless for your titillation, you know.

Gonna be a lot of 12 year olds trying to hide their downstairs guy from mum and dad.
The novelty wears off pretty fast, tbh. You just pay no mind to it, even as a horny teenager.

Most of the leering is done by other women. They judge other girl's boobs much more than we do dicks.

We were at Tenerife a few months ago and my wife wouldn't stop tapping my shoulder. "Look at those, look how fucking nice they are", she'd whisper. At some point I had to ignore her because I'd cross eyes with somebody and then it'd get weird.

So because they're in a different place to a penis and a vagina it's okay? Odd.

Probably against this because I really don't wanna see boobs on the beach, or anywhere.

In that vein we should all get to chose, and then what, you have a bunch of saggy boobs and wrinkly old dicks on the beach that you and your kids have to look at. Disgusting.

Went to Barton Springs in Austin TX where they allow topless. Saw a few girls without tops.

Was neat but then quickly became kinda normal and didn't care much for it. Kinda how it goes. Same way for Music Festivals. Felt more like being aesthetically pleasing than anything sexual. No different than admiring a fit dude at the beach.

Of course not. I just came to see if someone would do the meme.

I judge butts tbh. If a dude is sporting a nicer ass than mines I go home immediately to hit the gym.

I'm an American, and I couldn't care less. It's nature. I don't find it disgusting, everyone has them. So what.

Its not sexist to say cover your genitals. It's sexist to say "Only men's nips are okay."

Posts like this are the reason we still have problems with body acceptance.

Also, regarding nudity, the problem is in YOUR side not in the side of people exposing whatever part of their bodies. Nudity isn’t equal to sex. That is a purity old American mentality, European cultures understand it different.

Dudes can have gross tits, too.

And if you expose yourself at the beach/pool and happen to catch somebody's eyes, chances are you'll be judged. Man or woman. That's how it goes.

The key is not to be a creep about it.

Do you go to beaches to jerk off or something? Why you gotta be so ageist and not allow people to relax, thinking if beaches aren't up to your titillation people should not come?

Sounds like your issue is with the human body, not just this law.

i'm European, I get it, I just don't want to see it, just like PDA. I don't think there is anything wrong with covering up, or baring all there is just a time and a place.

I wouldn't be happy as a dad, if nudity became normal and I had a daughter topless on a beach with a bunch of grotty horny men leering over her.

I'm British as well so probably a bit of a prude.
