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]

I don’t support either side in this fight.

I get that. But what do you have against their breasts? Why focus on bear breasts? Why not fox breasts or deer breasts? Are you a speciesest?

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

Yes they are profoundly pro-abortion.

But I do find it heartening that they are one of the (very few) groups willing to take on the Muzzies and Sharia in the public place.

anyone who thinks their bodies are public property is a slut. I find nothing admirable about what they did, even if the why was proper.

Not only pro-abortion. In Ukraine they sawed commemoration cross. They are anti-church in the first place . IMO, FEMEN, just like less fortunate Russian ‘Pussy Riot’ is a commercial enterprise, aimed to gain popularity and to start profiting out of it. They have no problem buzzing businesses like that, thus it makes little to none air time outside Ukraine and Russia yet. Paid protestors are a good business in that part of the world. Nothing can help a corrupt politician to extort a huge bribe for a project protested by a bunch of ‘green activists’ just to seize protests. It is as instrumental if ‘human right activists’ rioting in the interest of some jailed Russian mafia types to push for lenient sentence or early release.

Church and mosque stunts brings no profit but it brings needed popularity to get hired for real work.

Thanks AZLiberty.

If they want to make an impact, instead of just making the papers, they should instead burn the mosque, after nailing all the doors shut.
