Cancer Survivor To Swim Topless

Jodi Jaecks, 47, has pressed for months to swim topless in a city pool after her double mastectomy made wearing swim tops painful. The Seattle Parks and Recreation Department has reversed a decision by its aquatics manager and decided to allow Jaecks to swim topless in a public pool. Parks Superintendent Christopher Williams says there's nothing to alarm the public, so the department decided to make an exception to its dress policy for public pools. Seattle Times story here.

Question: Do you see anything wrong with the decision to allow breast cancer survivor Jodi Jaecks to swim topless in a Seattle public pool?
