    wow talk about making a mountain out of a molehill....i would think that most men would have seen enough breasts by the time they are old enough to cruise, that they wouldnt feel the need to oggle women who are there to tan....and for no other reason. it's all about respect for the women who are there, and the companions who are with the men who are oggling, as someone else said in an earlier thread. my husband will be with me, and its so NOT an issue to him if other women are tanning topless as well. guess he's mature.

    Sophie, I think I would definitely take a peak at you, thought I would try not to stare.

    well t-bone a peek is one thing but a stare is a whole other issue. people are going to "peek" no matter what. . . and that should be the end of it.

    pretty gigi:
    Well, I can't think of 100 things wrong with my statement. Maybe one, maybe two, but 100? I still stand behind it...its still my opinion, and I haven't changed it, yet! Who knows, maybe you'll convince me.
    I read back and your initial post did NOT say "stare"....it said "some HAIRY OLD DUDE comes in BY HIMSELF sipping his drink and walks around ENJOYING THE VIEW"...it was later you brought up staring, and it was your initial post I was replying to. In reading it, you seemed as upset that the man was hairy and old and by himself as you were that he was looking! I'm sorry, IMO, its a public deck, anyone old enough to be on the deck as a right to, even if they're old or hairy or by themselves -- or all three! But maybe you're right, when was the last time I went on a cruise and saw someone like that sipping a driink, walking around enjoying the view? Whatever is cruising coming to?
    Look, I don't mean to sound like I don't appreciate what you're saying. I don't always like it, either, when I feel like I have to remind someone that my face is about 7 or 8 inches above where their line of sight is. But its hardly on a par with rape (re: Kobe's lawyer comment). I just think that if things like that really bother you, you ought not to put yourself into a situation where it is very likely to happen.
    Of course, another tack would be to make a suggestion to the cruise line or crew to make it "ladies only". If enough ladies did that, it could happen, couldn't it (in the future, I mean, not at the time of your cruise)....

    Just to clarify....I think it is rude to stare, too! But, then, I was taught it was rude to stare at other people at any time, not just when they're semi-nude.

    Moral: Be prepared for everything, including stares! If it really bothers you, don't go topless, or go topless and bring along your REALLY BIG hubby/boyfriend, who ABSOLUTELY, as prettygigi says, deter the "starer" in one way or another!

    I did not mean to offend anyone in any way with my opinion. I have found that the older I get the less I am prone to get up in arms about dealing with these sorts of situations. To try and change human nature (and men in particular!) is like beating your head against a brick wall. Life is just too short for that, for me! Rather than beat my head against the wall and complain about the wall, I'd rather just go around it (or ignore it!)...

    I just want to say that I have nothing against old hairy dudes. It's just that this one dude staring at us happened to be old and hairy. I had a picture in my mind and I wanted to share it.

    I appreciate the different points of view. Thank's for sharing as this will definitely help me lay back and relax knowing that the world does not revolved around my breasts (or does it LOL!)

    Frito, once and for all are you a girl or a boy?

    Prettygigi,
    I think I am going to have to check these out to determine whether the world revolves around your boobs.

    the thought that the world revolves around breasts at all, sort of gives new meaning to the word "ORB - it"

    :eek:)

    Gigi --- actually I was born a boy, grew up to be a man and then decided I would try the other side and had a sex change operation---hence the well rounded views i have on most things.
