Women Want to Bring ‘Go Topless Day’ to Boston in August
Boston Magazine ^ | August 6, 2013 | Steve Annear

Posted on 08/10/2013 7:56:34 AM PDT by ConservativeStatement

There’s a 50/50 chance that the Boston Common could become the stomping grounds for a group of topless women later this month.

August 25 marks national “Go Topless” day, where women from dozens of cities across the country will bare it all in public—some risking arrest—to advance a woman’s right to walk around half-nude. The annual “Go Topless” day always falls around the time of Women’s Equality Day, which marked the passage of the 19th Amendment, in 1920, allowing women to vote. Now, the movement is trying to reduce the gender gap when it comes to accepting that females have as much right to walk around shirtless as their male counterparts.

Reduce the gender gap? I wonder if 18-year old men refused to register for the military draft if that would be considered reducing the gender gap.

It's been far too long since I vacationed in Boston and saw the "sights".

Really they are likely just desperate to show their “T###” to anyone.

Sadly, most activist, “close the gender gap” women are the one who should never be topless..

1. Men going around topless is frowned upon most places.
2. Are women trying to say their breasts aren’t ‘private parts’ any more. Remember, grabbing a man’s chest is not a sexual offense.

If this is about the celebration of their vote, gives new meaning to hanging chads.

It's a shame you have to censor a word for something everyone except blind people have seen! And even blind people have felt them!

If women want to go nekid, let em! It'll scare away the moose!

Grabbing a man’s chest may not be a sexual offense, but it could get you seriously hurt.

Especially if it contains gold bullion.

Great idea. Wander topless around Boston.

Just don’t do it here. Everybody put some freepin clothes on already. You look AWFUL.

My point is grabbing a woman's chest could make you a registered sex offender. Grabbing a man's will not.

If they want true equality, the. They need to be willing to drop the special protections under the law they currently have.

I guess grabbing a women's chest shouldn't be a sexual offense either once "equality" is achieved.

Unfortunately in liberal Mass it will be a bunch of burned out hippies and other rabid old age or over weight libs.

Now Diane Lane, yeah, I could get behind that!!! Interesting choice of three there though, I don’t see the connection between Derek and Lane with Hathaway as there are a few years difference in their ages.

i have a feeling that you will not find those sights appetizing. It always seems that the willing participants in these events seem to the ones who have a hard time getting observed when clothed.

They may be arrested for an affront to aesthetics.

A Sunday? I'm SURE that's just a coincidence.

Having seen plenty of Red England women with clothes on; I can guarantee you I will be staying inside with the shades drawn on that particular day.

I say, if men can go topless in public—so should women. Once it was illegal for men to be seen at the beach toppless—they had to wear little shirts as part of their bating costume. Both men and women should still have to wear bottoms. Its not a big issue. We have really important things to worry about—like no jobs, an oppressive government, taxes that will not stop and illegal aliens up the yazoo.

As we have seen through decades of male inaction, they don't NEED to do anything. If men want equal protection, they'll have to fight for it, as every other group has.

Google up some of the Femen protestors.

If those types show up, it’d be worth it to stock up on additional memory/film for your camera.

It’s legal for women to go topless in Texas. If you are ever in Austin, go to Barton Springs pool and you will see +I+s everywhere in the summer.

Feminist: “I’m considering killing my self. Don’t judge me. If I were to shoot myself in the heart, where should I aim, doctor?

Doctor: “Your heart is just to the right of your left nipple, between the breast and the sternum. But, in your case, if you use the nipple location, let me schedule surgery for a KNEE replacement now!”

Sadly, the womyn who are most strident about their “right” to go around topless are the ones who you do NOT want to discover more about. Beachball bodytypes, hairy warthogs, sadly sagging has-beens, and pairs of old floppy socks hanging in the breeze along with massively wide-load hips are but a few of the sights that will greet you. Makes a mate instantly turn away whilst begging them to wear a simple toga instead. *shudder*
