Call it "topless" or call it "top free"--what's the difference?

@SuzyQ2 "Topless" has a certain connotation. As Ramona Santorelli puts it (of the People v Santorelli case that won women the right to go topfree in public): "That word, 'topless,' it puts a huge red flag up for me...It fuels the patriarchal values of how women are viewed. It has the connotation to topless bars and pornography, which from day one was what we were trying to get away from."

Just in terms of semantics, topless also implies one is lacking something, while topfree sounds like one is free of a restriction.
