Go Topless Protest ~ Venice Beach

From On Sunday August 21st, the women and men of Venice Beach will once again join the happy march by the thousands and stand up for women's right to freely GoTopless! The group will gather at 2PM on Ocean Front Walk at Navy St. There, the women will take off the tops and hide their indecent nipples with latex nipple covers...that look EXACTLY like nipples! you remember them don't you? We will have them ready for every women who wants to experience going topless as far as the city of Venice will allow her to.

Did you know that in the 1970's Venice Beach was a nude beach? And now... even a woman's nipple has become indecent. That's because our society has become more civilized over time, more family friendly, they tell us. It is difficult to understand how the millions of European children cope on the beach in Europe every summer.

In this demonstration, we invite the men to show what EQUAL RIGHTS truly means. At this moment on Venice Beach women cannot go topless, so in complete constitutional equality, the men will cover their chest as well. Will men with bikini tops look ridiculous? Maybe, but constitutionally, so do women in this double standard legal topless battle.

According to the Daily Mail, which has additional images and info about the protest:

Cult leader Vorilhon founded the Raelians after a supposed encounter with an alien called Yahweh Elohim in the crater of a French volcano in 1973. Elohim whisked him back to his home planet – where Vorilhon met Jesus, Mohammed, Buddha and Moses, and enjoyed perfumed baths prepared by robot servants. He was informed Christ’s resurrection was made possible by ‘advanced cloning’ methods carried out by extraterrestrials 25,000 years ago using DNA technology.
