Mike DeWine was elected the new Govenor of Ohio and was sworn in earlier this month.  DeWine supposedly has a record of being Anti-Thong and was instrumental in getting Greene County to be the only Anti-Thong county in Ohio.  He supposedly also voted to eliminate State Park thonging when the issue came up at the state house 10 years or so ago.


I am concerned that he might push the current legislature to re-visit the status of thonging at Ohio parks and/or find some way to use some "executive" athority to at least stop it for part of the comming summer.


Does anyone know anything, or have any guesses on what Govenor DeWine might do?

Traci I sure hope not. Cannot imagine it is even an issue. I go to CC to relax and wear my baggie. Makes my summer worthwhile.

Traci ... say it isn't so. I will be keeping a close eye on this cause I was hoping to visit a couple of the state parks. I drove through Ohio on my way home from Hamilton, Ontario and very much enjoyed the beautiful landscape. Unfortunately, I didn't get to stay like I wanted, but figured that I could return this summer for the purpose of laying out in my thong at a couple of the more popular sites. Hopefully there won't be changes in the state law. Please keep us updated!

A step backwards! The US is so far behind Europe, South America.... Detrimental to people's rights. In the most recent years I have witnessed more acceptance of men and women top free and bare bottomed. It has been a welcomed change, (and nice views). It was not 'eye candy' but nice to see a young mom sporting a Brazil, enjoying herself and with her two kids. Maybe D. Governor lacks the self-confidence this woman had!

Democracy is a citizen driven activity, the best thing to do is organize and voice your displeasure to your elected officials. Write letters, send emails, use their social media platforms and protest if need be. Urge them to keep the rules for thongs and topless at Ohio State parks. If the Ohio government hears from the people. Maybe they will listen. I live in Pittsburgh where you can't wear a thong at the state parks, so I take a hour and 1/2 drive to the nearest park to sun my buns and swim without being hassled by the MAN! Maybe we can get folks on this message board to take action against the new governor.

Ohio has been through a couple of attempts to criminalize thongs in the last 20 years or so. Like most states (and the federal government), a bill must be passed by both chambers of the legislature, and that bill then signed by the governor. I think in Ohio if the bill is not signed nor rejected in a certain length of time, the bill passes as if it was signed. This permits a governor to not officially agree with a bill, but still let it get turned into law. Also, like most places, if the governor vetos the bill, it can be passed anyway with a larger majority of legislature representatives. In the past, the anti-thong bills have passed only one chamber of the legislature, and were never presented to the governor for consideration. There is a time limit which dictates that bills must be passed by both chambers and presented to the governor before the end of the current legistlative session, so any bill not passed will be automatically rejected if not completed in time, and the whole legislative procedure must be started again from the beginning. I believe the last attempt at anti-thong, anti-topfree legislation did not even pass one of the legislative branches. And there appears to have never been another attempt. But I understand that if such a bill were to pass, thong and/or topfree beach use -- even the wearing of baggies and cheeky swimwear could be stopped on state grounds or in some other places in the state. We simply must keep our eyes on what new bills are coming up for legislative actions, and if any are unfavorable to thongers and topfree women, then steps must be taken to prevent the bill ever becoming law.

The thing I don't like is that if either chamber of congress (and this appies to other state and even the US government) passes a bill, the news media will say on the news "Ohio house passed bill which prohibits women from going topless". That is the way they report it. It could be that bill was passed to limit interest at payday loan places, or to replace a bridge or install dog play area or whatever. At issue is that a majority of people will see the news report and asume that the bill that was just passed is now law. Only if there is a lot of concern about the issue will they explain that the Senate must also pass the bill and the governor usually must sign it also. (There are times when the bill will become law without the governor's signature, as OHIOTHONGER tried to explain.) What the result of this type reporting is that people will assume that topfree beach use (or whatever) is now the law, and those who don't like what we wear will start yelling at use about violating the law and also calling the Rangers and police about any topfree women they see. This type "publicity" by the news media can only hurt our interests.

Other important point is that once these types of "decency" laws banning thongs or topless women pass, they're very difficult to get rid of, unless struck down by a court or the population undergoes major cultural change. There are many parts of the country where "cheeky" styles are worn and tolerated (mainly on women) due to their popularity, even though they may not be technically legal. This creates the impression that they're legal, but when fashion trends change, those same women (or men) who were previously wearing them unmolested might suddenly find themselves targets of law enforcement because they stand out from the crowd.

My college history instructor used to say "Once a law, Always a law".  NO SPAM TN1 is right in my opinion.  Every once in a while Ohio puts together a list of laws to change or delete.  This usually passes without question.  Normally it covers thing like mis-spellings, things that don't exist any more, and contradictions between two sections of the law.  It amazes me how relatively small the US constitution is and how long most of it has survived.  Good Work founding fathers.


One of the things that I don't like about laws that are ignored is that if an official decides he or she does not like what you are wearing, your attitude, your car, or anything else, they can suddenly use the statute that usually is ignored to give you a hard time, and perhaps even throw you in jail or pay a hefty fine.  I am not saying that such actions by the legal enforcers could not be argued in court (other people wear the same thing, I have videos to prove it) but your case would be hard to justify if you are actually violating the law.

This on-again off-again enforcement of laws is used to discriminate against minority people, by the way.
