[PICTURES] Free the Nipple Protesters Surprised Demonstration Turned Sexual

freenip

Forty women shed their bras and let their nips flap in the wind and then become incensed because men got turned on causing the protest to be sexualized.  They’ve got be kidding me.  Eighty boobs and no man is expected to notice?  Maybe in San Francisco. Why not just stick a six pack under each arm?  The protesters were gathered on a beach in New Zealand in an effort to legalize it for women to go topless.  They have my vote.

About 40 protesters rid themselves of their bras at Mission Bay, New Zealand, to stand behind the Free the Nipple movement

Organiser Grace Blundell, 22, abandoned her top for the cause, which she said she felt extremely passionate about.

‘Personally I want women to be able to have the choice, I want women to feel comfortable wearing whatever they want and not feel like they’re being sexualised,’ she said.

‘I don’t want to feel like I’m going to be judged by what I wear just because of my gender.’

‘It started from a young age even when I wasn’t wearing revealing clothing,’ she said. 

‘It taught me that my body was inherently sexual, and I definitely don’t think that should be the case.’

As a result of these experiences, Ms Blundell said she felt the need to stand up for change, however controversial it might be.

The Free the Nipple movement has been making serious waves right across the world

Ms Blundell said they garnered huge amounts of attention on the beach from some people who were just curious, and others who she felt did not understand the point they were making

Women were not alone in their protest, men passionate about the cause also joined in 

Groups of tourists and other beach-goers bombarded the protesters, pointing their cameras at them to take photos, as they looked on in amazement. 

‘Some were definitely taking photos in a sexual way,’ she said. 

And while it was ‘strange’ Ms Blundell said she tried to view it positively.

‘By doing this we’re helping our cause and normalising it,’ she said.

‘If I were to stand up and make a big deal about them taking photos, it would go against what we were doing.

‘But it also definitely felt weird because they were taking photos in a sexual way, not taking them because they understood the point we were making.’ 

Ms Blundell said she found it difficult getting her point across to other curious beachgoers.
