Berry Backs Boobs On Bikes

Stephen Berry is an independent candidate for the Auckland Mayoral elections in 2007. Today he gave his support for the Boobs on Bikes parade planned for Queen Street next Wednesday.

"As a homosexual I consider boobs to be horrid, horrid things with no appeal whatsoever. While a great motivator for a sizeable chunk of the population to bother talking to women, they are of no use to me. However this isn't an issue about what does and doesn't tickle the fancy. This is an issue of law."

Berry considers that the law has no business being involved in how women or men choose to present themselves. "Individuals are the rightful owners of their own lives and women are the rightful owners of their boobs. In a free nation, women should be free to exercise ownership over their boobs as they wish. If this includes displaying them from the back of a motorbike, then so be it."

The candidate's support for exercising sovereignty over what a person owns is not restricted to a person's body. He explains there is also a proviso based on property rights. "People who come onto an area of private property do so with the permission of the owner and this will usually mean accepting any rules that owner places on their property. Therefore if a standard of dress or morality is expected by a property owner, those who come onto the property must respect it"

"As Boobs on Bikes is taking place on public property, the only issue is whether the owners of the boobs consent to displaying them. As it appears they clearly do, Boobs on Bikes should be permitted to go ahead."

IF YOU'RE MAD - VOTE BERRY
