Go Topless Day

August 26 is National Go Topless Day, timed to supplement Women's Equality Day.

Somehow I get a vision of the 300 lb Homer Simpson lookalike ripping off his shirt and challenging the women to do better.

The Topless 7 were arrested in 1986 in Rochester, NY. That seems like a long time ago, to leave such a simple issue unresolved.

The article you point to, regarding Go Topless day, points out that the date of protest was inspired by the Raelians ("humans were created by 4' green aliens"). But there are others involved in the issue, some of them mentioned in the Wikipedia article on Topfreedom (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Topfreedom).

Sadly, the issue is not to display breasts, but to reduce the salacious exploitation of provocative partial glimpses, engineered shapes, and calling it "pretty". Body acceptance, as practiced among those choosing to participate in social nude recreation, know that the whole body is beautiful, but the important part is the person.

I went topless this afternoon. After correcting my initial error, which was to go bottomless.
