MN: Legislator proposes making it legal for women [sic] to go topless, citing “gender identity”

Source: Fox News

“A Minnesota lawmaker wants to make it legal for women to go topless in public after a resident was sentenced to jail for ‘indecent exposure’ related to uncovered breasts. ‘This to me seems really wrong,’ Minnesota House Rep. Samantha Sencer-Mura told The Star Tribune regarding the conviction. ‘Particularly now, as we as a society are thinking differently about gender and gender identity, I think this law feels very antiquated.’ Sencer-Mura, a member of the Minnesota Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party, admitted that her proposal would likely not be heard this year, but she hopes it will spark widespread discussions on shifts in gender identity and expression. Eloisa Plancarte was sentenced to 90 days in jail following an arrest by Rochester police in 2021, who responded to a call that a woman was walking around a convenience store parking lot with her breasts out.” (03/25/24)
