Topless Rallies in New York City

2010

2009

It should go without saying both links are NSFW and sometimes not very pleasant to look at either.

Blessed are the canned.

I know of a couple of TFettes in the Asheville area that I wouldn't mind seeing run in this.

Opponents include former city councilman Carl Mumpower. He calls the rally a public sexual performance that degrades women.

Mumpower? He should be all for this rally, then.

Leaving a bit to the imagination is much sexier than letting your tennis balls in tube socks breasts hang free.

All we need is someone to organize a cash prize for the most degrading act caught on film.

/I'd be in for $5

I went to the rally in Austin the past two years in a row. Only 6 or so women went topless. None of them were good looking at all. I won't be going this year.

"Opponents include former city councilman Carl Mumpower. He calls the rally a public sexual performance that degrades women. Propponents are sponsoring a contest for photos that capture the most degrading acts, hoping that will inhibit participantssell tickets."

FTFM

Probably can't beat the solstice naked bike ride in Freemont.

Classy move.

Am I more than a little amused that this rally is organized by a man?

GoTopless basically wants to break down sexual taboos built around Puritanism and Western religious concepts of shame about their bodies. It's one thing to wear clothes out of practicality or style, it's another to say that there is something inherently evil or corrupting about the body. Total nudity isn't as titillating as strategically placed strips of cloth, yet is considered much more obscene. It's one of those "because we want to control you" sets of laws that deserve to be fought and removed.

Organized by a man, and protested by another (douchey) man in Mumpower. This is nothing but a chance for all the attention whores on all sides to get their media face time.

BTW - toplessness is legal in Asheville, making this whole event the sillier... I love my stupid mountain town! 
/no really, I do

Well, to get permission for a topless protest would require toplessness to be legal. This raises the visibility of the town as one that permits it. The more localities that make the news as hosting the protests the more normalized being topless becomes and makes it more acceptable for other jurisdictions to permit toplessness.

This isn't a protest at the town, it is a protest against the shame and obscenity explicit in the rules in larger society. It is a demonstration in support of the legal view of the human form and the equality between men and women in that town.

Then, by all means, Free the Boobies!

I'll be happy to sponsor Grable's Daughter to come down and be FARK's representative. I'll even put her up at the Renaissance.

Aren't there normally more spectators than participants?

/Except at an REO Speedwagon concert

I call BS on that. It's nothing but attention whoring. As someone who had to live through the media blitz of it last year, trust me that no one comes out of this looking good. The participants, "on lookers" and protesters all just end up making fools of themselves rather than making any sentient point.

I'll be back to say I was wrong if this year is any different, but don't hold your breast - er, I mean "breath."

"An Alabama man is organizing a topless rally in Asheville later this month after obtaining city permits."

Why didn't I think of this??

The highlight of this article for me was the banner add you see here which featured Brian Easler's retarded son angrily mashing his testicles while jumping up and down on a pogo stick.
