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.
