A protest for Topless rights in America August 23rd
So many people in America are afraid of the sight of a woman baring her breast in public especially at a beach much less a topless beach.
Now it is deemed OK for a woman to be topless if she is paid millions of dollars by Sports Illustrated to do so. Or if she is paid to model and sell cars, clothes, magazines or something else, or but the idea that a woman would ENJOY topless sunbathing scares the pants off of so many people (pun intended).
Now gotopless.org will be holding a topless protest on August 23rd.
Here's the story:
"A Fight for the Right to Bare Boobs
...In January, U.S.-based GoTopless.org organized a topless protest at Bondi Beach in Sydney, Australia. Up until recently, nudity was illegal except on designated beaches, but local councils considered bare breasts acceptable.
However, a Christian fundamentalist politician, Rev. Fred Nile, introduced legislation in the parliament of New South Wales that would prohibit women from going topless on all beaches.
In response, topless women gathered on the Bondi Beach in protest, arguing that women's breasts are not offensive and should be considered just as natural as men's chests.
Now that battle is moving to the 'States. In eight participating cities—including Chicago, New York, Los Angeles, and Miami—topless women and men will gather and peacefully rally on Sunday, August 23, "to protest the gross inequality in the law and will demand that they be granted the fundamental right to be topless where men already enjoy that right...
The Equal Protection Clause of the 14th Amendment states that "no state shall ... deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws". The GoTopless.org Movement states that this Clause defends citizens from "gender-based differential treatment."
Therefore, if a man can go topless, so can a woman.
... "The aim is to convey that the sight of a top free women [sic] in public is as natural as the sight of top free men."
