Keeping abreast of National Go Topless Day

August 23, 2010

If you didn’t know, Sunday was National Go Topless Day, what organizers called a nationwide protest in honor of gender equal rights.

Rallies were held in nine different U.S. cities, including Miami Beach, Austin, San Francisco, and Venice Beach. No arrests have been reported.

Organizers argue for constitutional equality between men and women on being topless in public. “Currently, women who dare to be topless in public in the US are repeatedly being arrested, fined, humiliated, criminalized,” claims the Go Topless web site.

Protesters (do they march in pairs?) avoid being arrested by covering their nipples with latex nipple covers (We’re not making that up). Most local indecency laws demand that nipples be covered.

At the Venice Beach rally, men covered their chests with bras or bikini tops to comply with gender equal rights.

“We will force men to legally cover up if women can’t go bare,” said Nadine Gary, Raelian Priestess and President of

Gary criticized cities such as Ashland, Ore., Asbury, N.J., and others that have recently passed ordinances against women’s right to go topless, or that arrest women for doing so when local laws don’t even warrant this action (i.e., Madison, Wis.). “U.S. cities and states not recognizing women’s topless rights must be relentlessly sued to make them conform with gender equality,” Gary said.

Naked News not for the faint of heart.

If women really wanted to go topless, (law or no law) I don’t think you will find much objection from the male side. Just my humble opinion. ;-)

If I wanna see bare breasts I simply…look down! Granted, gravity is NOT kind to me.

I am oddly surprised CCN posted a pic of bare breasts without that “blurring” thingy going on. How is this ok for the young people who read this article? I am no prude and it bothers me not, I am just curious as to how this does not cause problems.

Grin and “Bare” it if you have it!

Hahhah Danika, I heard that a male CCN assistant did originally post the photo of bare breasts but the female BIG BOSS corrected it the second she saw it ! ! Leave it to the guy’s to think that this was such a great idea!

I’m certainly in favor of this; however, there may be many one might not want to see uncovered (myself included).
