A tip for the topless

A note to the women who expressed their outrage at breast-exposure inequality at the Pack Square topless event: I appreciate that you felt you were asserting your right as women to bare your chests in a demonstration for equal nipple opportunity, but this comes across as exhibitionism rather than protest.

While it may fire up the Carl Mumpower Puritan posse, it doesn’t take much to do that.  Men spending a Sunday ogling your mammary glands (have they never seen such a thing before?) were equivalent to participants in a bad reality show. It’s a good bet that some of those men may well have taken offense if those same glands had been exposed in public for the purpose for which they were intended — breast-feeding.

Your topless show really served no purpose other than to clog up Pack Square with a sophomoric crowd of knuckle-draggers. If your intent was to further the cause of women, here are a few suggestions: support Planned Parenthood; volunteer at a women's shelter; feed the homeless, which includes women and children; demand better science education so that the ignorant Akins of this world are relegated to the outer fringe, where they belong. And vote Democrat. (You are registered, aren’t you?)

    I like how you assume that women with their shirts off don’t feed the homeless or support Planned Parenthood/education, however ridiculously wrong that assumption is. Knuckle-dragging indeed.
