Are bare breasts ever a weapon?
Are bare breasts instruments of political protest?
Are bare breasts able to make a direct difference to politics?
FEMEN, a Spanish branch of the feminist protest group founded by Ukrainian Inna Shevchenko, believe that bare breasts represent all of these things.
So, are semi naked protests the way forward for the feminist movement in the 21st century?
Well, I personally don’t think the naked body has anything to do with a protest of any description. I just wonder if it is merely an excuse to get officially naked publicly?
Perhaps the bare breasts detract from the actual message being delivered by the group.
I wonder what percentage of the population actually read the article specifically to discover what these women were protesting for. How many really read it solely for the bare breasts? Ummm, I wonder!
By the way, if you too are finding yourself absorbed by the bare breasts, and have missed the political message, I shall enlighten you – they are protesting against patriarchy.
I can’t argue the other side of this one, bare breasts are bare breasts period! Not to mention that women who want men to see them as equals and be treated as such instead of just sex objects should probably start by putting a shirt on, seriously! How can anyone respect a woman who doesn’t even respect herself?!
I agree! Ridiculous and misguided in their mission! Kind of goes against the grain of feminism, contradicts the purpose.
Hahaha exactly!!! Sadly, some feminist activists really just want to be able to have sex like a man and be seen as men see each other for it and are not too concerned with how they are treated in the work place! Those women are a small minority but they have a loud enough voice that they interfere with the message of those who truly care about equality!
This is very true!
Those breasts hardly distract me from a political message – they’d have to be at least C-Cups for that
So it could distract then? Do you take such acts seriously?
Anything where humans go to an extreme should be taken seriously, be it good or bad serious
Perhaps so, you have a point.
What? Oh, right, yes…. protesting against what did you say…. 🙂
Haha, exactly 🙂
