Go Topless Day is August 28

Painting of Princess Unicornia by Gypsie Skripto. This had to be censored to be posted on wikia.com so this can show how silly censorship is.

Why can men go topless and women can’t? Should we not allow babies and toddlers to see breasts? If they’re older are they too old?

GoTopless Day is Aug. 28 this year.  It’s always on the Sunday nearest Women’s Equality Day when women got the right to vote for gender equality.

Women can go topless (or with their nipples covered, usually with fake nipples, if they’re marching in a prudish area), and men can wear bikini tops and bras.  To find out if it’s happening near you, check here.

    • Because my situation is really up in the air right now, I don’t know if I’ll be able to join you. Unfortunately, the odds are I won’t this year. I so looked forward to wearing a bra.

  1. There’s more and more of an effort to give gender equality in being topless and to allow women to breastfeed in public. If I recall, I think men being allowed to be topless in public in America only goes back to about the 1930s, although the change didn’t exactly happen overnight.

  2. If you don’t understand the difference between a man going topless and a woman doing it, you need to study the Bible’s teaching on lust. Even a look is sinful.

    Matthew 5:28 But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.

    • Perhaps you might want to consider the difference between the woman and the man who is lusting after her. It is not the woman who is to be blamed.

  3. I support this. I remember the wikia controversy. There was even a version of the painting’s nipples covered which they rejected because they said they weren’t covered enough. There was I suppose a bit of a darker spot above or below the censor bar.

    • They said it was pornography or obscene. And they said she was underage. Lorien was like 20 when that was painted and she was insulted. How can you tell the age of somebody in a painting?

  4. I am a bit of a prude on this and most sexual subjects and I would be too embarrassed to go there.

    • That’s the idea that it’s not sexual. A woman’s chest isn’t any more sexual than a man’s. If a man has boobs he can show them. 🙂

  5. I really miss this. I used to join them at Venice Beach. But since I became an elementary school teacher I have to be so careful.

  6. In Austin women don’t have to hide their nipples even though most do. It was a lot of fun with some great people including Miley!
