Re: Public Displays of Affection

I agree there's a "line" as to what kind of PDA should remain private. To me that is overtly sexual groping, and erotic gestures (If there's a deserted beach then fine...) rather than simply displaying affectionate ones like hugging, kissing, etc. I like to see couples display their affection in public and feel free to do so. It's good for the soul. Theirs and mine, lol. But for some people, even kissing is going "too far". Back in the 80's when I was travelling through Japan with my bf, we...

Welcome NFarious, You don't have to twist my arm to make me a believer. Sleaze, criminal activity, treason, etc., is very much alive in the Black community. Eventually though, this disgraceful activity catches up with the perpetrators. It is all the more pleasing in the event an individual or group of individuals have the backbone, and factual evidence to blow the whistle on such an individual, or group of conspiring individuals, which is indeed a sure way to put them all out of business.

Re: Toplessness

Rowe... I don't disagree with you, however there are two forms of consciousness here... how one feels about being naked, exposed, etc. and the environment and perception of others about that person being exposed, naked etc. I don't see any 'shame' in female nakedness, however it tends to always be associated with outside mysogyny. If I felt free to walk around naked, but totally aware of misogymous stares, then it would cease to be 'feeling free' and be more about being seen as 'an object'.
