Skip to comments.Marching for right to bare breasts, women faced with sea of cameras (Portland, Maine)

About two dozen women took a walk down Congress Street topless Saturday, attracting a large crowd as they tried to preach that partial female nudity is not worthy of attracting a crowd.
The point of the march was that a topless woman out in public should attract no more attention than a man walking around without a shirt on, said Ty MacDowell, 20, of Westbrook, who organized Saturday's event and promoted it on Facebook.
But as the event got under way in Longfellow Square, the marchers were soon outnumbered by scores of onlookers -- mostly young men eagerly snapping away with cameras and cell phones.
MacDowell said she was surprised by the turnout of those interested less in challenging societal convention than in seeing partially undressed women.
"I'm amazed," she said, and "enraged (at) the fact that there's a wall of men watching."
MacDowell said she understood that for women, going topless in public "is not socially acceptable yet, and obviously there's going to be a reaction to something that breaks the norm."
But, she said, the picture-taking was particularly upsetting.
"A lot of people were taking pictures without even asking," she said.

You evil Freepers are advised not to gawk at these Libtards while they challenge societal convention.
I thought I’d see this happen in Portland, OR more often than Portland, ME.
Most of them look, well, like they eat too much.
They’ve got back hams.
From the back view, some of them give me the impression that the front isn't going to be lovely, perky, attractive bosoms, but more along the lines of why women wear support garments in the first place. Just my op.
After seeing the backs, I don’t care to see the fronts.
Not exactly the Swedish bikini team, are they?
Dikes on... crack?
“I’m amazed,” she said, and “enraged (at) the fact that there’s a wall of men watching.”
Good grief .. has the woman been living in a cave ..??
If you don’t want men to watch - then cover up.
They already look like out of shape dykes just from those huge handbags, short hair and back hams.
Like to view breasts to make sure they are not belonging to BREAST BOMBERS!
Then, stay out of public view.
“Naked Lesbians” would be a good name for a band.
I’m just sayin’.
Judging the crowd, I'd say it didn't live up to its namesake today.
“”A lot of people were taking pictures without even asking,” she said. Kind of a hypocritical statement considering what tthey are doing. “
My thought exactly.
This perfectly illustrates one of the worst deficiencies found in liberals -- they are completely incapable of anticipating the consequences of their actions.
Yes Alex, I'd like to buy a clue.
