Leaning Into That Sexist Punch August 29, 2016Posted by geoff in News.
I’m sure everybody will be blogging about this tonight and tomorrow, but it’s too funny to pass up. Apparently some folks are upset that society doesn’t approve of women going topless in public, so they took their tops off in NYC to raise awareness of this pressing issue. And then they were surprised when the completely predictable, ludicrously obvious outcome resulted:
…only about 50 women and men bared their breasts to expose the lack of “equal topless rights for all.”
The lack of support did not go unnoticed by those who opted to doff their tops — many taking part in the rally noted the crowds were mostly made of up gawking men and creeps with cameras.
“We’re not here for everyone’s entertainment, we’re not here to get our pictures taken. We’re here to show that this is normal and that it’s legal to have your top off in New York City as a woman,” said visibly upset lab tech Elyse Scarpino, a 26-year-old from New Jersey.
“I thought it was gonna be a little more progressive and less men just ogling at you.”
Sorry, sunshine. It’s not like you weren’t warned by, like, everything in society.
