INTRODUCTION:

Welcome to BobKat's Lair ®

***

A lair is a home; A castle; A burrow; A haven; a place where one should feel safe. To ensure our safety especially in one's lair, we have laws. And some laws cause more harm than good!

This is a good place. There's lots to see and do. It's apolitical while providing non-partisan news about politics, which we can't escape.

Check out my aquarium and feed the fish; check out my post(s), my favorite media list and the many links to websites that promote what I feel is important.

Time for the awakening...

That is what my goal is here... to present topics which highlight the plight of people. Why, 2000 years after Caesar Augustus, are we still a people being hurt? With all our advancements in technology, medicine, communications, why are we a people still being hurt? Human nature hasn't changed much, but that doesn't mean it isn't time now for that to happen, and it is undoubtedly happening - hard to see however. This blog is part of that change and a witness to it.

GET OFF THE MERRY-GO-ROUND AND SEE THE WORLD TOPLESS

IT was inevitable... As inevitable as was the legalization of cannabis. Recently the US House voted in favor of a bill with an amendment added to not fund federal raids on marijuana in states where cannabis is legal for medical use. It now moves to the US Senate... the former Republican majority, the latter a  Democrat majority. To me, that is great news!

Some people disagree. Some people will always disagree.

They argue principles, morality, decency, public good.

I argue, "Live and Let Live; Stop the Hurt; Stop the Shame; Stop Arresting people for:

Being female and taking their tops off!

And marijuana use too, but this is about Women's Rights, and exposing their nipples.

I'm not joking...

We see signs in stores before we enter, "Shirt and Shoes Required". Hey, women don't have to think abut it at all... for men I'll wager that 30 - 40% of establishments with that requirement look the other way for men.

One way I know this is that while living in Boston and going out for a night to a special place - a penthouse club where proper attire was required, both my girlfriend and I wore jeans - not allowed, yet they let her in, no problem, me, they told me I wasn't properly dressed, to leave. When I argued there were women wearing jeans a police officer stepped forwards and asked, "Is There A Problem?"

Ahh, but why did I not simply accept rules of etiquette? We have a double-standard and we should not question it.

The question is: Are Men and Women Equal?

The answer should be yes, and why? We're all, of any race, any tribe, any family, all human beings. Life is difficult and it's the goal of human beings to find peace, love and prosperity.

Having made my argument, you may think I'm delusional... if so, seems we are at worlds-end as gay Marriage is legal now in most states as well as on a federal level, marijuana is gaining wide acceptance and the Reefer madness era seems to have sunk, with no black-box to emit pings that can't be traced anyways. By 20/20 I predict marijuana will be legal in 2/3rds of the states. The Schedule One mentality, the stepping-stone ideology, all sunk. None were ever real to begin with, that's what is so tragic. But that's in my following post, back to equal rights.

There's a movement on, in case you hadn't noticed, to give women the right to dress the same as men and that means topless.

FOXNEWS: "Brits Olivia Edginton, 20, Lydia Buckler, 21, and Norwegian Ingvild Marstein Olsen, 20., are encouraging people around the world to strip to the waist with their Topless Tour project, reports the U.K.'s Orange News."

This may seem insane or immoral, to me it doesn't.

Scout Willis, the 22 year old daughter of Bruce Willis and Demi Moore, recently bared sans shirt in NYC, where apparently it's legal - I did not know that! But then I'm a guy and I don't have to wear a shirt, though I CHOOSE to.

"Well, that's one way to make a statement."  Scout Willis might be saying...

"Scout Willis walked down the streets of New York City Tuesday wearing nothing but a skirt and flats to protest Instagram's policy against female nudity...in a big way."

The link will bring you to the censored pics of Scout Willis.

Accepting new ways of thinking I understand it's difficult. However I don't see the world in black and white. I see shades of gray and rainbows.

Happy 21ST Century... One Hundred years ago the beginning of WWI began... not for US... but it began.
