For those who are for this, let me ask you something
Are you perhaps taking equality too far?
And would you want your daughter to participate in this event?


I would be uncomfortable with it. That's how the culture I grew up in trained me.

If I had grown up in say, Spain, I am sure it would be totally okay to me.

It's just social conditioning.


Breasts are nothing more than modified sweat glands surrounded by fat.


Nice pillow talk. I am gonna use that line soon

I think the issue of rights is being brought up because women can get charged with a misdemeanor for going topless, whereas a man does not. It can be perceived as unequal protecton under the law, which is a fundamental right. The issue is, if men can go topless, then women should to. Sex in public places and public nudity is illegal for males and females alike. that is a false equivalency.

That said, im on the fence. I am a female, i would never go topless, but that is my preference and i will admit it would bother me to see women walking around topless, butthat is because i have been conditoned to that. I understand the issues that come along with allowing exposed female breasts but that is a result of requiring them to be hidden and therefore they have an allure. But then the debate is, which came first? The chicken or the egg, i guess. Public nudity is different because that is just plain unsanitary.

Another issue is punishing women for doing something that could entice others to committ crimes, harrassment, or be a nuisance in general. I liken it to the dont ask dont tell policy in the military. Gays had to be quiet because other people had a problem with their sexual orientation and couldnt control themselves. Gays were ounished for other peoples actions. I think that applies to women in this case.

I believe they have petitioned to have the name of New York changed
to The Big Nipple. I certainly raise my cup to that.



ETA: Seriously though, To all involved in this daring
endeavour - You have my support, bra.

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.


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.


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.


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.



It's not against the law to be fat, but there is an unwritten rule. If your fat, keep your clothes on. Unless you live in Sunnyvale Trailer Park.

The organizer is right. Why do we consider exposed breasts to be nudity? No matter how you look at it, there's nothing sexual about a woman's breasts. Are people turned on by them? Sure, but people are also turned on by feet and inanimate objects.

If only everyone could behave themselves. A taboo on nudity is one I'd like to see dissolved - that being said, if my body is not in shape I won't punish others by revealing it publicly.

My wife's nips get hard when she is turned on so wouldn't that imply there is something sexual about breasts, some of the things I do to them are most definitely sexual.

I'm happy for them to get them out, if they are happy for me to get off over them.
The poor women they really are so hard done by can't even get their tits out in the main street, I would use the gym down the rd but it's female only (try opening a male only gym) I would use the Doc a block over but it's a female doctor for female problems, (try being a male doc & turning away a female patient), my back is sore today cause I have to do all the lifting at work because you can't get a girl to lift heavy things.
My friend was assaulted while waiting for a tow after road assist couldn't fix it that's not a problem but they have a no female left alone at night policy. If only he had a vagina he would not have to get knew teeth & stitches.
I can't go into a club without dress pants/shoes/collared shirt & a belt, yet some slag can walk in practically naked.
I was one of the last BOY scouts here now we just have scouts, funny how we still have GIRL guides isn't it.

The poor hard done by feminists my heart bleeds for them, NOT. How about we have equality movements instead of sexist woman's movements who really aren't about equality.

Is a male getting a chest pat down going to be sexual assault now too, or can we play TSA and feel up girls tits all we like cause they aren't sexual or anything, how about some of these girls let me come touch their tits & we will see if they still feel the same.

And her heart rate goes up too, does that mean hearts are sexual?

Most women have less strength, kinda makes sense.

Yeah, it isn't a law, its a dress code..you can always not go.


Is a male getting a chest pat down going to be sexual assault now too, or can we play TSA and feel up girls tits all we like cause they aren't sexual or anything,


It's called patting down the opposite sex, the whole body, not just tits, ridiculous comparison. A woman can sexually assault another woman.


how about some of these girls let me come touch their tits & we will see if they still feel the same.


That's just really creepy. You don't have the right to touch anyone without permission or self defense, male or female.

They can in designated areas, but to allow it cart blanche would be hazardous to public health.

Im not sure how this would give female "equal" rights, it would just make them look more like the stereotypical man's objects, or eye candy, w/e you want to call it..

Im a man but i never in my life walked half naked on streets, only time my shirt comes off is at beach but sometimes i prefer having a sleeves less undershirt on.

I'm really kind of shocked by some of the crude things being said in this here thread. Come on fellow men, the more you behave like drooling dogs the more you decrease the possibility our nation could ever be ready for something like this. But to anybody that opposes this idea, please explain why you are against the peaceful pursuit of liberty

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.

news.yahoo.com...


In my opinion this fits the profile of classic con-artistry. Remember that guy who made a few million off of selling a weight loss product that was just a vacuum cleaner attached to a trash bag cut into a pair of shorts? Any mentioned connection to the Rothschilds or Illuminati is simply a sales tactic. The followers, or customers, sign up because they want to hobnob with the snobs only to end up paying some clever used car salesman a significant portion of their income.

Kudos for the topless movement though

Q. And her heart rate goes up too, does that mean hearts are sexual?
A.Plays it role but fondleing her heart would land me in trouble, and if it stiffend at my touch she could be in trouble.

Q.Most women have less strength, kinda makes sense.


A.So my back being sacraficed cause a woman can't cut it in her job makes sense to u?

Q.Yeah, it isn't a law, its a dress code..you can always not go.
A.It lends to equality, women can get their tits out at home & just not go out, this was about equality right?

Q. It's called patting down the opposite sex, the whole body, not just tits, ridiculous comparison. A woman can sexually assault another woman.
A. female police officer can touch my chest & even request I remove my shirt in public, can a male officer do that to you? Not such a rediculous comparison when you bring equality into it!

QThat's just really creepy. You don't have the right to touch anyone without permission or self defense, male or female.


A.So there is no differance if I touch your hand than if I touch your tit, yeah right I'm sure you would feel that way NOT.
Guy: Hay that girl just touched my chest
Response: So it was your chest not your wang.
Girl: that guy just touched my chest.
Response: Oh my god you were just sexualy assaulted call da po po.
