2012 National Go Topless Day at Venice Beach

Monday, August 27th, 2012

Sunday was the 5th Annual National Go Topless Day was held in cities around the world, including Venice Beach, CA. I was there last year and it seemed to me like there were fewer people this year. Perhaps it was the lack of counter-protesters this year; less commotion resulted in fewer participants. There were definitely impromptu participants, so I suspect my theory is correct.

People asked me what this is all about, and this is what it boils down to; nipples. For some reason, if women wear those little pasties that look like a nipple they are not violating any laws; if the nipple is bare, then the woman is subject to arrest and in some cases could be forced to register as a sex offender. All for a couple square inches of flesh. Interesting, huh? Enjoy the photos, and I will return next year. (more…)

Photos from National Go-Topless Day, Venice 2011

Today is the fourth annual National Go-Topless Day. In cities across the United States, from Honolulu to Washington, DC marches were held and breasts were freed for a few hours. The protest is held to bring attention to what is described as “unconstitutional topless gender discrimination.” These photos are from the event held at Venice Beach, CA. There were a few hundred participants. Granted a majority of them appeared to be men that probably should be forced to wear shirts in public, it served to show the inequality. Women must cover their breasts, but guys with larger breasts are free to swing. Luckily, we had the religious zealots out there to remind us how terrible the human body is.
