"Go-Topless Day" in New York seeks equal rights to bare chests


news.yahoo.com

Some two dozen topless women protested in a New York City park on a hot, sweaty Sunday as part of what they called "National Go-Topless Day" to draw attention to inequality in topless rights between men and women.

There were topless men in the park, too, but nobody paid them much attention, a disparity, organizers said, that demonstrated the need for the event.

The topless women drew crowds of onlookers who took pictures and video with their cell phones.

"We say there is nothing wrong with the female nipple," Karen Heaven, an organizer of the event, told the crowd that quickly for

I ran this through the search engine, along with varying keywords, and nothing popped up. If this has already been posted somewhere, I can't find it.
Also, I apologize--I have NO clue which forum this belongs in, it doesn't really seem to fit anywhere. Mods, please move it if you feel it belongs elsewhere.


I have to say, I'm not on board with this movement. The Raelian origin aside (lmao), I can see how this could backfire to a point. I mean, I'd like to see another woman's bare breasts in public about as much as I want to see a heavier guy's own C-cups. I don't even want to see my own droopy boobs. On the flipside, I don't mind a well-chiseled bare-chested man in public, buuuuut...I don't think this is going to work in quite the same way for a bare-chested fit woman. A smokin' hot topless women is GOING to be objectified.

All you need to know:


The annual Go-Topless Day was established in 2007 by a former sports car journalist called Rael, who founded a religion called the Raelian Movement after he said he was visited by a space alien in a French volcano park who told him life on Earth was created by extraterrestrial scientists, according to an account on his website.

I dunno. Just like men. Some women should not go around topless. Also can we make a rule that my neighbor who weighs in at 300+lbs has to stop walking around the neighborhood with skin tight vinyl pants. First it's summer and that has got to be hot and uncomfortable. Second. They don't look like pants they look like stretched out black trash bags sewn to your waist. Stop it. You live across from an grade school, you're confusing the kids.

But back to the topic. Although I would love to see some women with their tops off. Half of them I would not. Not all breasts are pretty breasts.

But it's not really about what YOU want to see. It's about freedom and equal rights for everyone. Do you support making fat people (men and women) being forced to wear more clothes because you don't want to see it? This idea of things being banned and illegal because people are offended by them is really getting out of hand.

Women are already objectified. As proven by the laws that say they have to cover their chests.

I support the women. I wouldn't want to go topless myself, but I support equal rights.

Note to Rael:
I am officially converting to Raelianism!

P.S. - Do ya'll serve drinks at these events?

Actually that WASN'T all you need to know:


Illuminati Linked to Raelians

The 'Evelyn Rothschild' Facebook page contains a central link directly connecting to the bizarre RAELIAN movement - a sinister New Age cult . The group's website states: "The Raelian Revolution is boldly bringing about a complete paradigm shift on our planet." This cannot be ignored, given its claim that a who's who of the world's elite, including Barack Obama and Tony Blair, are its "friends."

The cult is headed by a man they call RAEL MAITREYA - Maitreya being a Sanskrit word for the anticipated 'new Buddha', or 'enlightened one'. The term has been absorbed within New Age and Theosophy terminology, where it has come to mean; the coming WORLD TEACHER. Others, especially bona fide students of the Bible, from many mainstream, non-cult, religious groups, believe this Maitreya to be a future manifestation of the ANTICHRIST. 'Rael Maitreya' is more than well connected:

On the friends' list of the 'Rael Maitreya' page, we find the initially inconspicuous 'Igor N. Grata' - evidently it seems, a preeminent activist within the cult of Raelism:

Igor N. Grata, directly inter-linked with 'Evelyn Rothschild' and 'Rael Maitreya', has no less than 57 Rothschilds and 13 Rockefellers, and a list of the most significant world leaders, entertainment stars, lists of Royal Princes, Sultans, and European Nobility. Film Stars, Society Greats the world over - all directly personally attached as friends to this personal Raelian Cult Facebook site.

Illuminati Who's Who Linked to Raelians

All false religions are illuminati created...


"Every major religion in the world has been manufactured or infiltrated by the Illuminati to enslave and brainwash society. In essence, religion was the first form of mind control. The indoctrination of the masses by a "Trojan Horse" false religion has allowed the Illuminati to take control and work in secret for many, many years." Link

Religion is a major tool of the Illuminati agenda

If men/women are exposed to bare breasts all day and every day they will lose their luster and become less attractive part of the female body.

I mean I like some good ta ta's but if they are in your face all day they will be less desirable.

Some things to be desired are worth waiting to see.

It figures....

Only on ATS could a thread talking about exposed boobies end up with a link to some Illuminati conspiracy

EXACTLY!

REAL women understand the power of subtlety and the allure of mystique. You have neither if you're walking around with no shirt or bra on!

This is why feminists really have such a hard-on for stuff like this. It's not about equal rights as much as it is destroying masculinity!

Sorry, I should have said "objectified more than we already are". And we do certainly objectify men in return, so I really have no problem with objectification, personally. What's good for the goose is good for the gander & vice versa.

As far as covering up for the sake of others goes, I'm going to go "there". Should we allow full nudity in public as opposed to partial (upper body) nudity, because one might be more comfy in the dog days of summer totally bare? No, not acceptable at all to go totally nude in public? Come on, now. How is one form of nudity more acceptable than the other?


Murgatroid, I'm on the fence regarding the existence of the Illuminati, but that link's a little disturbing, if true.

Were you expecting the Girl Scouts to be behind it?

How much SENSE does "Go-Topless Day" & equal rights to bare chests actually make?

Obviously.....

Pics or it didn't happen..

Now that that is out of the way.

Of course women should be allowed to go topless. It is much more pleasant a site than a harry chest...

Good for you...


BTW, I would never have posted that quote if I had ANY doubt as to the legitimacy of it.

This obviously fits the NWO agenda perfectly which is WHY I posted the link and quote.

Treading on dangerous ground here, however:

I'm opposed to this simply because of all the accidents we'll see due to people rubber necking to look at the ta-ta's swinging in the wind.

It'd be a disaster....at least for the first day of it.

then when men stare at their bare chest they get mad as hell about it.

I fully "support" the idea of women going topless


Although... guys... This isn't always a good thing...

It seems the only women that ever go topless are the ones we don't want to see...
