Yesterday I met up with the Outdoor Co-Ed Topless Pulp Fiction Appreciation Society! Or the OCTPFAS!
No I’m kidding, but I think they need an acronym 🙂
We settled in the middle of Sheep Meadow. And it was great hanging out with such friendly, like-minded people! However, not long after we sat down, a police officer came over to ask us to put our tops back on. She told us there were complaints from people with their kids around, and our response was informing her that this was legal.
(As an aside, I really hate how this is always the excuse, when we all know that in fact kids don’t care, until they are taught that it’s not okay. Parents / people / society teach children that breasts are inappropriate, shameful and unnatural to fully expose in any context but a sexual one. Do we say to dudes, cover up- there are children around? Case in point.)
Bonus: We got invited to a sing-along with this dude on a guitar and his group, and so ended the day with Heart and Beatles songs.
Read an interview with the Society’s starters in the Village Voice.
We were fresh news on Gothamist!
