Moira Johnston exercises her topless right on a daily basis in NYC, join her ! It's legal
When asked what inspired her to go topless, Moira replied, "I was practicing yoga at a yoga school in Union Square and I felt like taking off my shirt during class. I didn't do it at first. I actually went to the founder and asked her if it was OK because a lot of my male counterparts practice without a shirt there and in other yoga studios as well. So I practiced yoga topless and a bunch of people complained about it, and so I realized that they didn't know it was legal. That's what inspired me to become more active about letting people know that it's legal."
As she takes her walks while topless, Moira often hears words of encouragement like 'we support you' and 'it's natural'. But to be walking alone topless in the city is not always easy for Moira, "There's a fair amount of diversity in opinions and responses to the issue of toplessness. I notice that when I am wearing a shirt, people look into my eyes and sometimes stare. When I'm not wearing a shirt, people tend to automatically look away from me (unless they are asking for a picture!)".
Indeed, people in society seem to react in a similar fashion each time they are faced with new social norms that temporarily conflict with the morality there were raised with. But, after a period of adaptation, people integrate that new norm and move on.
Moira is a lady with a strong constitution and inner convictions, here is what she shares about her future plans to spread topless awareness:
