Topless attention – Femen

FEMEN – is a movement of topless women activists.

I’m not sure what to think about this Femen. I heard this organisation started in the beginning with protests against rape and sexual abuse.
However, it’s for sure that these naked women get some attention in the media…because they are topless…

    From the little I’ve read about them, they are a low-thought protest-oriented group.
    They protest a bunch of sexist things, but I actually doubt they propose any viable solutions to anything.

    The most original thing about them is that they are supposedly against prostitution, all while wearing prostitutes’ work uniforms.

      To call a woman’s naked body ‘a prostitute’s work uniform’ is utterly offensive. Are you aware of that?

        Heh… really? Offensive? Perhaps you’d care to explain how.

        Let’s see… prostitutes are naked when they work. Strippers are also naked when they work. Technically, that’s a uniform.
        I wasn’t talking any woman’s naked body. I was talking in this context… which is in public.
        I don’t know any other situation where it’s considered ok to be naked, other than nude beach… but that’s why people go to nude beaches, so they can get a full tan on their naked bodies.
