New York Women March For Equal Rights; Boob Puns Ensue *PHOTOS* (NSFW)

Boobies!

Chanting "Nipples! Nipples!!!" in a crowded street is one surefire way to draw attention. Flashing nipples is another. 

Yesterday, unsuspecting Times Square pedestrians got a bit of both, in a fleshy display of female empowerment. Coinciding with Women's Equality Day, the fifth annual Go-Topless Day -- an initiative started by GoTopless.org to protest "unconstitutional gender discrimination" -- urged ladies to liberate themselves by liberating their areolas (see NSFW photos after the jump).

Topless rallies officially took place in 40 cities around the world, in both cities where "top freedom" is illegal and not. In those cities where bare boobs are lawfully unkosher, men were encouraged to sport bikini tops as tokens of their solidarity.

Top freedom has been legal in New York City for years now, but clearly not everyone has gotten the memo. While GoTopless.org activists marched through the streets chanting pithy slogans, hoards of wide-eyed men and camera lenses swarmed them. Cheers abounded, but at times it was hard to distinguish between cheers of support and the shouted equivalents of eyebrow waggling.

Some local celebrities were present to support the cause, including activist Moira Johnston and self-proclaimed "topless paparazzo," Holly Van Voast (felt-tip mustache and all). Van Voast has a reputation as staunch proponent of top freedom, but was not wholly supportive of GoTopless.org's cause.

"I don't believe that titties belong with some sort of religion that believes aliens created the world," Van Voast said.

This was not some misplaced jab at Scientology: according to GoTopless.org,
"GoTopless was founded by the Raelian Movement, which recognizes that life on Earth was created by advanced extraterrestrial scientists.

These scientists, both male and female, used their mastery of genetic engineering to create humans in their own image (breasts included!)."

Whether this is some sci-fi fantasy gone awry or someone forgot to take her blue pill this morning makes no difference either way. What counts is that finally, someone is sticking up for lady bits everywhere.

I suspect the huge majority of the people opposing women's toplessness is the women who want to maintain women's sexual power, which would be severely diluted if breasts were exposed everywhere. 

Oh, and such businesses as strip joints would oppose it. Their aim is to separate men from their money by helping perpetuate women's sexual power. Watch for their secret funding of the opposition.

At least call it what it really is : empowerment of the exhibitionist; not of women.

I went through all the photos and there is only one pretty lady, one okay, and one just about okay.  The rest were old ladies!!

Ironically, woman like to be topless because it's natural instinct for them to want to flaunt what they have to attract a mate. Woman are just natural exhibitionist. I looked through the photos, and didn't see a (wedding) ring on any of their fingers

While topfreedom isn't directly related to naturism, it would probably be fair to say that most nudists/naturists support the idea of fewer restrictions on our ability to catch a few rays of sun when and where it's appropriate.  Just what 'appropriate' means is determined by social attitudes and anything that helps folks recognize that bare skin, is harmless suits our purpose!

 

Since it appears that no major riots occurred, the world didn't end, God smote no one, and few people have been reported to have been scarred for life by the sight of nipples, can we safely assume that the relative harmlessness of exposed breasts has been demonstrated to everyone's satisfaction? 

 

We would, however, like to say that the social nudist community is not affiliated in any way nor endorses or supports any suggestion that Martians invented nudists or gave us the idea that running around nekked was somehow in accordance with any Cosmic Plan. No, we figured out all by ourselves that being nude is fun, and even more fun in the company of other good folks who feel the same!  You may think us strange, but we're not THAT strange!

 Typical shallow crap, Cassidy.  Focused on whether or not a woman is pretty.

@gynnady 

You should hold up that banner on the other side of the street! 

Thanks for the laugh and brilliant insight.
