Gotopless Asheville, NC Aug 21, 2011
North Carolina is a top free state so our Gotopless event will encourage the participating women to exercise their right to be topless in public.
It should be such an easy thing to do but with centuries of repression upon us, it is sometimes difficult for women not to feel ashamed of exposing their bosom in public.
With these GoTopless events, we aim to push back further the frontier of indecency which once started at our ankle and wrists when long gowns with long sleeves were in fashion. Back in the 1900's, women would have felt completely ashamed of wearing a 2 piece bikini on the beach.
Women have certainly come a long way since then. A hundred years later, their challenge is to overcome their shame over exposing their breasts in spite of the harsh criticism of those who would like to maintain the discriminatory status quo: man can show their chest but women can't.
The pretense is that women's chest is sexually appealing. That is true. However, what part of a woman's body is not? The Taliban have gone to the extreme to barrage every inch of women's sensuality.
GoTopless in Venice Beach, CA Aug 26, 2012
Did you know that in the 1970's Venice Beach was a nude beach? And now... even a woman's nipple has become indecent. That's because our society has become more civilized over time, more family friendly, they tell us. It is difficult to understand how the millions of European children cope on the beach in Europe every summer.
In this demonstration, we invite the men to show what EQUAL RIGHTS truly means. At this moment on Venice Beach women cannot go topless, so in complete constitutional equality, the men will cover their chest as well. Will men with bikini tops look ridiculous? Maybe, but constitutionally, so do women in this double standard legal topless battle.
Once everyone is ready and has put plenty of sunblock on their breasts (hint hint...ladies) the march will begin at the beat of the drum circle group.
Group meets at 2pm on Ocean Front Walk at Navy St. March starts at 2.30 PM towards Windward circle for our speech and entertainment at 3.30 PM.
GoTopless Day in New York City Aug. 26, 2012 on Times Square
It was so natural to be topless 40 years ago! Every Woodstock attendee will bare witness of this! And now. 40 years later, the law is acknowledging women's right to be topless in public and our mentality has regressed! Today, the big question is: are women's breasts actually family friendly? Are women likely to psychologically traumatize children if they are to show their breasts in public? Today, the debate is over breast feeding in public, and women across the USA feel they are winning a big battle because they are winning the right to breast feed in public. Let us think bigger than that! Let's think constitutional rights! Breasts are decent whether you are nursing or not!
So, GoTopless.org wants to offer you a little feeling of the freedom of Woodstock on August 26, let's call it Boobstock! Come and join our parade of freedom, come and join the festivities, enjoy the music, the band, the show... No need for alcohol or drugs... 40 years later, women can enjoy their body in a natural state of mind as the Raelian Philosphy, sponsoring this event, invites people to do.
Breasts, Peace and Love, NYC!!!
Time and Location: Meet at Bryant Park at noon and March to Times Square - Speech on Times Square Red Stairs
Last year's event was a true success, see article : [link]
We deplore that the journalist had to end her article with the unnecessary modest, politically correct statement...
