back to article Streak life: Oz woman flashes boobs at Google Street View car

A 38-year-old Australian woman, who flashed her bresticles at a Google Street View spycar, has been accused of disorderly behaviour. Alarmingly, Oz cops claimed that the alleged fleshy exposure back in January was "the same as someone flashing their genitals and the public expectation is that we take action." An image of …

    Naked he-boobies legal. Naked she-boobies not. Explain.

    Someday we will decide that boobs are no more or less exciting than any other body part: when attached to the person to whom one is, um, attached, they can be a source of great joy but when attached to someone else (parents, co-workers, Margaret Thatcher naked on a cold day, &c) they are just biology. Alas, today is not the day and tomorrow doesn't look promising either.

        At the end of the spectrum, wasn't there some suggestion 4 - 5 years ago that Australian censors were to ban A-cup size or smaller, 'cos they might be mistaken for underage girls?

          There were rulings by the Australian government / courts that banned pornography (video or stills) that featured women who "looked underage" regardless of their actual age. It was suggested / implied by this that women with small breasts would get included in this, essentially being banned from pornography in Australia. Though obviously a woman in her fifties with small breasts would not be caught by the law, in practice it means that many women in their twenties (potentially even thirties in some cases) might be ruled "underage porn" because they had small breasts. The law passed in 2005. I don't know if it's ever been modified or how much it was applied so cannot comment on that.

          An Australian senator is on record as saying that pornography of women with small breasts "encouraged paedophilia".

    No, its not the same

    The SA police need to have a quick anatomy refresher, I think. Boobs aren't the same as genitals no matter who's flashing them.

    Methinks this is more of a "we can't let her get away with it, because someone complained, and we can't look like we're not doing anything" reaction. Hopefully, the judge has a better sense of humor.

      This is exactly the logic which led New York to make it legal for women to walk around topless in public. I always like it when a Republican mayor actually does something involving keeping the government from interfering in what are actually people's personal affairs, and which only affect other people if they choose to be affected.

      Children enjoy them for a couple of years maybe. I've found them a reasonably integral part of having sex for the last 20 years. I pity you for missing out!

      I suspect the internet agrees with the idea that breasts are for sex, but that should be taken under advisement. It isn't true for everyone everywhere.
