Ocean City Lets Women Ditch Their Bikini Tops

Ocean City Lets Women Ditch Their Bikini Tops”

Ocean City officials, however, quickly waded into the sand and said that women should keep their tops on.

So late previous year, a local advocate asked the State's Attorney to look at the laws about toplessness on Ocean City's beaches, and come to a firm conclusion on the matter. The law on being topless in Maryland is unclear, which is why there is conflict over it.

An advocate for women to be topless in public contacted the Worcester County State's Attorney's Office past year to ask why women need to cover up but men don't on the resort's beaches, the CBS station in Baltimore said.

The head of the Ocean City Beach Patrol said in a memo that workers should document complaints of toplessness. "She's raising an argument that because men are allowed to go bare-chested so are women should be allowed to go bare-chested". Shore patrol staff have been told to stand down when it comes to topless women at the beach ever since a determined activist argued that ordering women to cover up is gender discrimination.

At that time, Worcester County Attorney General Beau Oglesby ran the matter up the flagpole, requesting an opinion from Maryland Attorney General Brian E. Frosh. The policy is to ensure that lifeguards are keeping their eyes on the ocean, and keeping swimmers safe. But without an opinion from the attorney general, he says they don't feel like they can tell women not to sunbathe topless.

However, the Town Of Ocean City explained in a Facebook post that the police department will be responding to calls from patrol officers, as well as any complaints from the public.

But Ocean City government seems to be hearing more of the latter.

The mayor says he's received almost 100 emails from concerned residents and visitors in the past week. The mayor of Ocean City and the City Council are both opposed to the act.
