Jen Moss Seems To Be A Bit Of A Legend In Oregon:
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.
There's two ways to look at this; If I'm with a bunch of children, I'm thinking this is a public place and she shouldn't do that. Hell, if it was a guy in nothing but a hemp g-string I'd be pissed. So should there be a double standard in this case? If I'm hanging out with the boys and downing some beers, it's a fantastic idea and I'd be cheering her on.
What do you guys think? Should she put some clothes on?
