Casual Friday presents: Too Sexy II, Criminal Edition

The mother wins!

Remember the New York woman who said she was fired from her job for being too sexy?

In Italy, being too sexy is a crime!

A 26-year old Italian woman is being investigated for “sensuously” rubbing tanning oil on her breasts while at a topless beach. The problem started when a mother of two tweenage boys (12-14) asked “Luisa” to stop rubbing lotion on herself. When Luisa refused, the mother complained to police.

I’m sure the entire department is involved in this one. “Where are those crime scene photos?!”

The mother had every right to complain. Can you imagine the emotional scars those kids suffered from having to see Luisa rub tanning oil on herself at a topless beach? I mean, most kids have to use the internet for that when their parents aren’t home.

Luisa’s attorney is indignant about the whole thing:

“She is amazed that she is being condemned for simply sunbathing topless,” lawyer Gianluca Arrighi said.

“’Let’s be clear my client is tall, brunette and has an ample breast and is therefore going to naturally be sensuous when she applies cream to her chest.”

And let me be clear that I am short and therefore not very good at basketball.
He thinks she might have a case against the mother …
Mr Arrighi said there could be grounds for his client to sue for slander if the case is dropped as “you can’t be reported for sunbathing topless in 2010”.
Or the police, maybe? Not really sure where he’s going with that. Maybe Italy’s slander laws are different than ours.

But think about poor Luisa. What options other options did she have?

Italy’s La Repubblica newspaper waded into the argument by defending the sunbather.”Summer is the season where everything happens but it is also the time of pathological mentalities … where was she supposed to apply the cream on her clothes?” said a commentator.
No, really…
