FORT COLLINS, CO - Fort  Collins, Colorado is full of historic homes, beautiful gardens and, apparently, breasts that want to be freed.

Brittiany Hoagland calls the city's public nudity ordinance sexist and a constitutional violation.

"I've been fighting this diplomatically since February."

At public forum Hoagland addressed the matter, "No person shall knowingly appear in any public place in a nude state or state of undress such that the genitals or buttocks of either sex or the breast or breasts of a female are exposed."

However, Colorado law dictates "equality of rights under the law shall not be denied ... on account of sex."

No one really had an issue with it until Hoagland bared her thoughts on the matter. And now the city council is asking residents to weigh in on should Fort Collins maintain the current policy, or allow women to be topless in public?
