Men going topless on the beach is pretty regular. Women not so much. So it’s no surprise that police had no idea what to do with a group of transgender men who went topless on the beach.
Weasel Zippers reports:
Rehoboth Beach in Delaware isn’t a topless beach – but a few transgender men caused a stir by treating it like one.
Police say passers-by complained after the men removed their tops and revealed their surgically enhanced breasts over Memorial Day weekend. A lifeguard asked them to put their tops back on. The men initially refused, but covered up before police arrived.
Even if they hadn’t, though, Police Chief Keith Banks notes the men were doing nothing illegal. Since they have male genitalia, they can’t be charged with indecent exposure for showing their breasts. Banks says there’s no need for a specific law to address the issue.
I’m pretty sure that the 21st century is going to be a really strange one. Really really strange.
