God, I can’t imagine being naked outside. It’s so cold right now. Umm… [thinks for several moments] I’m not going to tell women what to do, but tits are different than a shirtless guy, no matter the woman or the man. I get there’s a question of equality, but much as I like boobs, I’m uncomfortable with it. I guess women have the right to do it if they want, but I wouldn’t want my girl to go around like that. If nothing else, I’d be worried about guys trying to grope her.

I have heard about these women but haven’t seen them. I do not like the idea. What happened to modesty, for both men and women? There is no reason to dress like that, even in the summer. I would not let someone in my cab if they were missing clothes; it is not proper.

I guess I support the idea, but I don’t know why women would want to. Seems like you’d be asking for trouble, and I’d feel like a perv all the time because I’d just be staring. They’re going to get me in trouble with my wife!

You’re asking me if I’m ok with women going around with their titties out on the street? Yes.
