Femen Stages a 'Topless Jihad'
The Atlantic ^ | April 4, 2013 | Alan Taylor

Posted on 04/04/2013 11:52:14 PM PDT by AZLiberty

Earlier today, members of Ukrainian feminist group Femen staged protests across Europe as they called for a "topless jihad." The demonstrations were in support of a young Tunisian activist named Amina Tyler. Last month, Tyler posted naked images of herself online, with the words "I own my body; it's not the source of anyone's honor" written on her bare chest. The head of Tunisia's "Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice," reportedly called for Tyler to be stoned to death for her putatively obscene actions, lest they lead to an epidemic. Tyler has since gone quiet, leading some to fear for her safety. Below are images from Femen's protests today in Sweden, Italy, Ukraine, Belgium, and France. A warning, nearly every photo depicts nudity, and most contain offensive language. [31 photos]

This is a movement I can get behind.

Anti-Islamists showing their breasts -- what's not to like? But that duct tape has to hurt.

I first read that as Fremen...

And then I remembered that my cat in that sock controls the spice.

In case it wasn’t obvious, I forgot to mention: definitely NSFW.

Wow! I’m actually kind of glad that the women of NOW didn’t do a similar protest, though I’m not surprised.

Wow, Finally..... Finally the social protesters are picking on the correct target instead of whining about how supposedly backwards Christianity is (which it is not, i mean Jesus stopped the stoning of an adulterer for crying out loud ), I guess they finally woke up to the fact that Islam is very much an anti-women anti human freedom death cult.

P.S. A lot of things for Laz to hit in this article.

FEMEN targets Christianity as well. Don’t get fooled. It is one nasty group.

Well, it’s not a conversion. They also celebrated the Pope’s resignation, calling him a homophobe.

You think they’re stupid?

I think these left-wingers actually attacked the right target for once. I can’t say they did it with grace - but they held up a mirror to Islam.

I’ll give them kudos for that, and for their bravery.

In some settings...a guy just has to "cop" a feel, obviously. No bear breasts allowed at the bazaar, no matter how bizzare the results of grabbing them, to keep anybody from looking at them.

I give them a lot of credit for targeting Islam, the real enemy.

Even being carried away these women did not stop screaming and yelling.

You have to admire their tenacity.

They’ve got balls.

The question becomes, have they removed the beard of the prophet?

This protest simply does not go far enough.

Good to see someone brave enough to openly protest Islam in a very public way.

Yes, they are also just as rabidly against Judaism and Christianity, but at least they are consistent. This gives them far more credibility and intellectual honesty than most media outlets.

Topless protests in front of European mosques (by women who actually look GOOD topless), with them burning Islamist flags in front of the mosques. They have guts, spirit, and many are damn cute.

They are TRUE feminists.

If you are protesting to an international audience, you do it in English, which is the most likely second language that any European is going to learn.

As long as they don't try to bite me, nothing much. But the toilet paper manufacturers resent all the going about in the woods that doesn't always include the use of their products.

Mr. Whipple loves cats, 'cause he gets to sell 'em plenty paper.
