Oregon woman plans to parade topless on July 4

ASHLAND, Ore. - A woman seen frequently in Ashland riding topless on her bicycle says she plans to be in Ashland's Fourth of July parade free and independent of all clothing but a hemp G-string. The Chamber of Commerce says that's contrary to the rules for the family celebration. She says she'll sue if she can't parade as she wishes.
 
Jen Moss has been known as "The Naked Lady" since she moved to Ashland in May from Ojai, Calif., drawn by the town's nudity laws. They specify only that people must cover their genitalia in a city park or the downtown commercial district, which means Moss need not cover her breasts.

The police in California, she says, harassed her when she rode her bicycle wearing a G-string and pasties.

Moss applied for an entry for the parade, which draws thousands each year.

The Ashland Chamber of Commerce learned of her coverage plans from an online posting. She promised to lead in-line skaters "wearing only a hemp G-string and blowing a conch shell."

"We don't feel that someone in the parade who is topless or nearly naked is appropriate for a family audience," said parade chairman James Kidd.

He said a letter was sent to Moss on Monday and wouldn't speak specifically about the chamber's position until he was certain that she had received the letter.

Kidd did say that parade rules clearly indicate that entries must be appropriate for a family audience. He also said he understood that the Ashland city ordinance allows women to be topless.

"She's welcome on any other day of the year to do that," he said. "But not on the Fourth of July while in the parade."

City Council member Eric Navickas said he's on Moss's side.

If she can't be in the parade, Navickas said, it would be "an interesting commentary on our society that we're willing to tolerate dead bodies through our aggressive foreign policy from the war, but not healthy, naked bodies."

Moss told the Ashland Daily Tidings in an e-mail that if she can't be nearly naked in the parade, she would "run around near naked protesting their unconstitutional(ism) and un-Americanism." And she said, she would ask the American Civil Liberties Union for help in a lawsuit.

While this reporter hasn't seen a picture of Ms. Moss, I feel it is safe to say that she must be butt-ugly if the Chamber of Commerce is trying to stop her from being naked.

To be so open and free and all that, she seems to have a thing against showing her nipplage, so I cannot accurately assess. I also note she has tan lines, implying she wears a top when tanning.

I was going to suggest that you, Rollo, and I make a road trip up to Oregon for the 4th of July to check it out, but it would probably be easier if we just went to a strip club. I'll bring you a bottle of Malibu.

And the plus side would be seeing a topless chick that probably wouldn't be confused with Eric Stotlz.

I'd still hit it though...

And why is it that we're finally now having a conversation about this 5 months after the fact?

Because she's topless.

1. It was an unanswered post.
2. Newsbot concluded she was fugly.
3. This is the internet. Search engines are easy to use
4. It was a slow work day
5. As anarky pointed out, she's topless
6. This is vynsane.com

You do the math.

Eric Stoltz in "Mask" or regular Eric Stoltz? Because that chick does have a Rocky Dennis sized noggin.

I was going for the Mask version of Stoltz.

i searched for her and she's a treehugger. nothing wrong with that. but she needs to eat meat. lots of it. she needs to fill out. those little second grade titties are too small for me to put my head in between and make funny noises.
