Hmmm...I can be in Boulder in six hours with all kinds of things that need healing.

Sally King, an artist from Lyons who heard about the tradition from an African friend, spoke to the women about the natural healing and energy contained in a woman's body.

LOL.

"It's such a great bonding experience," Lisa McDonough said to another woman. "I may not see you again, but I feel such a strong connection to you."

Uh-huh. Right. Whatever--start making out and allow cameras or STFU.

"It's liberating," said another Lisa, who didn't reveal her last name for privacy reasons. "We're all individuals with different sizes and shapes. ... It's about women getting together and accepting their bodies."

...Oh yeah, and some BS about soldiers or something.

"It's such a symbolic way for people to remember that women's bodies are nurturing, healing ... and this can be shared with people," she said.

NO THEY AREN'T. But yes, they can.

Aww, man! All we got were a bunch of senile little old ladies, and "well meaning but not too good with current events" hillbillies.

/Oh, and getting the shiat scared of us when the firefighters hosed our plane down in salute. All of us were thinking, "Great. 15 months in Iraq, and I'm going to burn to death on the tarmac in Bangor, Maine."

Oh, Sally, if you fell for that one like to hear about healing and nurturing traditions for soldiers returning home, I'd like to tell you about the fine Scottish tradition of bonny lasses sooching kak; nae faatees.

If I ever become Emperor of the World, I will not have hallways in my house.

I will have tunnels composed of naked women.

Anyone else find it amusing that a story about women going topless is coming out of Boulder, Colorado...?

Sorry guys. We only do this for genuine heroes.

Damnit.

I leave for ONE WEEK and I miss breasts?

Bare-breasted big>African women> form a tunnel to greet their soldiers returning from war -- healing the troops just with their presence. This story is an African tradition that is said to heal the men from the mental and physical pains of war and return them to their normal daily lives.

Now, are the women black sistas or are they Jungle Love, Bush African?

'cause I wouldn't mind some high yellow honey or redbone. (new window)

This sounds like a good idea in theory but I have the feeling it's not so nice in reality.
 
2009-07-19 12:30:35 AM  
Why does the reason these women are doing this sound like a BS urban legend; like something you would see written in a chain SPAM?

/not that I don't think the idea has merit...
 
2009-07-19 12:31:54 AM  
Just open up a National Geographic.
 
2009-07-19 12:35:48 AM  
I love when feminists latch onto these things about how woman's bodies are so healing and nurturing. If they really listened to the story they would see that the tradition is about woman submitting to these warriors so that they can be healed after going away and leaving them alone to fight and pillage.
 
2009-07-19 12:39:14 AM  
I'm sure it works! Hell I feel better just reading about it!

Why don't we open up a museum of naked bodies? That would be kinda cool but there would be fap police.

Have you seen the wives and girlfriends of guys in the military???
 
2009-07-19 12:44:27 AM  
This headline is misleading...I came for young to middle aged white women with nice perky breasts, only to find out its all African women. No, I'm not racist, but we've all seen NatGeo, and those just are not the kind of boobies that this farker enjoys.

Officer or Enlisted? My studies show it tends to make a difference.

Ok, Officers tend to have slightly better looking wives and girlfriends than enlisted but not by a significantly noticable difference.

Who cares what the original women looked like? It's totally irrelevant.

Anything others would see would only be an imprint. And hell, from imprints, make up your own imaginary fantasy woman to go with.

This seems like a fun opportunity as the participating ladies obviously enjoyed themselves - more power to em. And hell if a recipient enjoys the print in whatever way he likes.. good for him too I guess :p

The point is everyone enjoys themselves, without looks even being a factor. Win all around.

If economy of words was important to you, you could have said, "it's all pink on the inside."

But looks are a factor.

Sometimes the difference between "harmless flirting" and "sexual harassment" is a bald pate and a pot belly.

some one needs to dig up that sketch from MadTV about the first rule in avoiding sexual harrasment is "Don't be ugly."

Having been to Africa multiple times, I eagerly await the day they realize they can charge for this as greeting at airports - sort of like in Hawaii you can pay to have someone meet you with a flower lei, ya know?

So far, though, no tubes or tunnels formed of boobies for me. And honestly, the idea of a bunch of new-agey feminist hippie Coloradans taking the idea and running with it is just... weird. I think I'll try to change planes somewhere other than Denver (on my way back to Africa to tell them about this great idea I have for their airports).

Heh, interesting way to put it, and a valid point..although not necesarily applicable to a group of women giving soldiers a print of their breasts, as was the implication in the article.

although conversely, if I were a soldier returning from wherever and a group of male.. uh.. male-ists presented me with imprints of their junk it would freak me the hell out.

See, thats what I'm talking about. Those aren't even so much boobies as they are big nippled, floppy, ninnies.

As a military wife I think this incredibly rude and I am NOT getting a kick. It is bad enough that we have women throw themselves at our men all the time. This is crap. I am pissed now.

You might check the rest of the Internet. I'm not sure myself, but I've heard stories.....

One might have thought that a newspaper with the moniker, "The Daily Camera Mail," would actually include photographs with their stories.
