Why feminists should embrace public nudity

On Saturday, August 26, people will observe it as the day women got voting rights.

Now, fast forward close to 97 years and women still are not even close to having equality in the United States.

We all know about the War On Women currently being waged by anti-choice extremists. But, this goes far beyond abortion. Nudity rights are in peril by conservatives in cities as well.

While public nudity is legal in 43 states, female toplessness in 48, and breastfeeding in all 50 – only 19 states actually give women the right to breastfeed anywhere she has a right to be (49 protect breastfeeding on paper, but most of them allow towns and cities to ban breastfeeding in public places).

My fellow white Americans.

“THIS is ‘white people’ oppression: We used to be the only voice. Now we hold the only microphone. THIS is ‘white man’ oppression. We face criticism now. We were free from it, because others feared the consequences.

THIS is ‘oppression’ of white Christians in this country. Christmas used to be the only holiday acknowledged, now it’s not.

I would so love to see these people get all the oppression they insist they receive, just for a year. Just to see.

Give them a world where you ACTUALLY can’t say Christmas. A world where the name “Geoff” on a resume puts it in the trash. Give them a world where they suddenly get a 20% pay cut, and then 70 women every day tell them to smile more.

Give them a world where their polo shirt makes people nervous, so they’re kicked off the flight from Pittsburgh to Indianapolis.

Give them a world where they inherited nothing but a very real understanding of what oppression really fucking is.

Give them a world where if they pulled up on a campus with torches lit and started throwing hands, the cops would punch their eyes out. Put THAT in your Tiki torches and light it, you sorry Nazi bitches.
