As many people in the town of Dewey may know, a new law has come along, making it legal for women to go topless. Although it is not legal in Dewey, it is legal in many places in the state of Oklahoma and five other states. According to CNN, this ruling was made in Colorado, affecting Wyoming, Kansas, New Mexico, Utah, and Oklahoma. Both women and young girls are allowed to go topless. Taking pictures of topless women out in the open is legal and you are allowed to post it, but it is against the law to post a picture of a girl under the age of 18.

Two teachers and many students were interviewed at DHS to get their opinions on this new court ruling. Both Mrs. Singleton and Ms. Ward said they do not really understand this new law and that it is, “stupid”. When asking teachers if they would ever consider participating in this new law, they simply said, “no”. When asking students the same questions, they had slightly different answers. Chaz Ostermeier felt that if the women are 18 and over, then it is not a problem, but he also believes that modesty is important. When asked if he would ever consider going topless as a woman, Chaz said no. There are many students, though, who have the same opinion as Corbin Buford, saying that this new trend is, “legendary”.
