I have found the weather to be strangely captivating lately. I hope she'll join in the movement.

Femen & Pussy Riot are both part of a strange social reaction to the great loss of life in WWII. It's fascinating.

Looks like at least one of the Shevchenko sisters are in the pic.
GIS for FEMEN or Inna Shevchenko or Alexandra Shevchenko. Ukrainian, not Russian BTW.

I'm surprised that we've gotten past 50 posts and we haven't had any of the usual "OMG Femen is justa buncha feminazi biatches who hate men!" posts that tend to show up in these threads. Though, we do already have some victim blaming, so I suppose that's something.

Christian Bale: Millennium: untaken_name: So, women going topless to protest rape...Isn't that kind of likely to cause more rape, not less?

That depends on what theories of rape one subscribes to. According to these particular protesters, it doesn't: that the idea of a woman's self-presentation causing rapists to target her is just a cheap excuse on the part of the rapists.

Cheap excuse or no, I'm inclined to agree with you at least partially: that getting the creepers all riled up is probably counterproductive.


Nope. Only naked women in magazines like Playboy of the SI swimsuit issue cause rape, according to feminists.

I wanna protest so bad right now.

So it's a Ukrainian activist group protesting a rape in Tunisia by getting topless and holding signs written in English at the Louvre in Paris? Do I have that right?

/The French were almost certainly more offended that the signs were in English than at the toplessness.

It's National Public Radio, Subby. they don't do pictures ... well, maybe on their website or blog. Have you tried their blog?

Pity nobody ever invented radio with pictures, eh?

Does TFA say anything about why they write slogans on their bodies in English? Curious, for a French protest group.

Much in the same way that eating chicken leads to cannibalism.


The same way that eating broccoli leads to killing bears.

They are not a French protest group.

They are, however, attempting to gain a larger audience.

Which language would you have picked to write your signs in if you wanted to pick up INTERNATIONAL press interest? Mandarin?!?

You would think that NPR could be a bit more risque since the only people that really pay attention to it are old, without much to do and so tired they would rather let someone else think for them.

The knock on your door in 26 mis is from the naked rape police. They'll be enforcing the mandatory naked rape re-education-by-doing, as a penalty for not fully understanding the gravity of situation. Then you'll be just like the rest of us.

Well, at least you'll walk like the rest of us.

hasty ambush:
Thankfully no pics. It has been my experience the the vast majority of people willing to get naked in public should not be seen naked by the public. The few attractive naked are overwhelmed by the numbers of ugly naked so just everybody keep their clothes on when out in public.

Plus these women being French and Feminists there is probably a lot more body hair than you would want to see on a woman.

Ah, yes, the old "tits just made for radio" spin. Went to a Canadian "topless protest" once. Just once -- never again. Now that whole Canadian "selling milk in bags" thing makes more sense.
