Lexa Green started this petition to Human Rights Comission and
  • New Zealand has a mixed view law on Nudity or what they might call 'public indecency'. I think this topic needs to be covered & addressed in respect to our human rights. 

Under the Amendment Act 1997

27.Indecent exposure
(1)Every person is liable to imprisonment for a term not exceeding 3 months or a fine not exceeding $2,000 who, in or within view of any public place, intentionally and obscenely exposes any part of his or her genitals.
(2)It is a defence in a prosecution under this section if the defendant proves that he or she had reasonable grounds for believing that he or she would not be observed.

This really contradicts itself. Back in 2012, an article was released about a police callout to 'elderly breasts in the ocean'. The officer responded that it was not an offense. To this day we have specified nudist beaches, nudist clubs, topless festival goers & naturist retreat/accommodation. It is a natural human right to be nude so at the simplest, why can't women have fair rights to men, permitted to be barechest. Topfreedom is a cultural and political movement seeking changes in laws to allow women to be topless in public places where men are permitted to be barechested, as a form of gender equality. All kinds of people appreciate the human body & many like to express this, general citizens, naturists, photographers, models & artists. The human body is natural & should be free to be free!! To be ourselves is to risk being fined upto $2000. I think this is unfair to our human rights especially when creating art or self expression. I understand some people don't agree with nudity but it's as simple as looking the other way, simply, if it isn't your body it isn't your say ♡
