Women Can Now Go Topless At Calypso Water Parks In Canada

But you still can't wear a thong.
Women Can Now Go Topless At Calypso Water Parks In Canada

The popular Calypso water parks have finally changed their dress code rules and now allow women to go topless at their Quebec and Ontario locations.  

One less piece of clothing sounds great, just in time for ourhot and humid weekend.

But put away the banana hammocks, thongs and transparent clothing are not permitted. According to the water park's website, "Bathers of all genders are required to wear an appropriate swimsuit bottom.  We reserve the right to determine the appropriateness of swimwear."

Perhaps a new job position for one lucky (or unlucky) worker?

Back in 2017 a human rights complaint was filed against Groupe Calypso Valcartier, several other hotels and Cornwall's municipal pools for not allowing women to go topless

The complaint was settled out of court but later that month Calypso issued a statement that women would have to wear bathing suits that covered their breasts at all times while on their properties.  The statement went on to say that it wasn't a moral decision but one based on family values (not sure what the difference is there).

In 1991, Gwen Jacob was charged and convicted of committing an indecent act when she walked down an Ontario topless

The conviction was later overturned and in 1996, an Ontario Court of Appeal ruling paved the way for women to bare their chests in public.

Basically, her breasts weredeemed not obscene. Hoorah?

In the past few years, organizations like Free the Nipple and TopFreedom have popped up, aimed at changing laws in areas where men are allowed to be topless, but women aren't.

They are focused on equality, empowerment and freedom of all human beings....and their chests.
