    Woman to go topless Sunday, protesting laws that discriminate against female breasts

    2015: Norma Toral of Walnut Creek organized the topless day at Dolores Park in San Francisco, Calif., on Sunday, August 23, 2015. The demonstrations take place in various areas, with 2016 demonstrations planned via Facebook (NSFW).

    "The more you repress a body part, the more obsessed you become about it," president of GoTopless, Nadine Gary tells SFGATE. She also happens to be a Raelian priestess. That's the alien religion from the 70s, if you recall.

    Topless day across U.S. encourages women to bare all for equal rights

    Media: San Francisco Chronicle
    It turns out the national protest event is the work of Rael, the spiritual leader of the Raelians.

    "Monotheistic religions are the culprit for the guilt humans feel about their naked body, their sensuality, their sexuality with of course a woman as the ultimate instigator of 'the original sin,'" said Gary.

    Rael describes his view of inequality as this: "As long as men are allowed to be topless in public, women should have the same constitutional right. Or else, men should have to wear something to hide their chests."

    Rael used to be a French race car driver and journalist until, he says, he had a close encounter of the third kind in 1973, after which he changed his name from Claude Vorilhon to Rael. He began writing books about his newfound spirituality involving extraterrestrials and cloning as the means of immortality, and toured the world founding the Raelian movement. The religion makes sensuality and feminism part of its core values.

    Raelians promote the celebration of Go Topless Day on the Sunday closest to Women's Equality Day, Aug. 26, acknowledging the date in 1920 that American women earned the right to vote. It's an officially recognized day for women's rights. The topless part was Rael's addition.

    In San Francisco, however, it's a moot point. Being topless is perfectly legal here, although there seems to be some confusion about the law, and rangers appear to be enforcing a shirt policy for women at Dolores Park, in the photos above, although no such ordinance exists that we can find. (We have calls in to Parks and Rec for clarification, but other law enforcement agencies made it clear that topless women are perfectly legal).

    Showing ones genitalia, anus, or perineum, however, is not. You need a permit for that. That's how some of the nude parades featured in the photo gallery above were able to happen without a bunch of naked arrests.

    The interesting thing is that California actually has no state law preventing nudity. You can go naked wherever you want, as long as it's not "offensive nudity," or banned by a specific city or county that you're in. The confusion results from cities like Berkeley and San Francisco passing these more restrictive ordinances, covering varying degrees of disrobing.

    Legal experts contacted by SFGATE still remind everyone that cities and even some agencies within a city can enact stricter regulations. And where topless is legal, being so cannot be used to harass, disturb, or cause disorder, because then there can be arrests.

    And, it can be very disturbing for American men.

    "One can notice that reaction when American men see topless women during our GoTopless events. It's a big contrast with French men who see topless women on French beaches. In Western Europe, repression has phased out and so has the stigma," Gary said.

    Utah, Tennessee and Indiana remain the most restrictive when it comes to forcing women to cover their chests, according to the map at GoTopless.org.

    As for California becoming the French Riviera of America? Culture just isn't there yet, although legally, the law appears to be on your side in many parts of the state.

    What would be the quality ratio here? 3 ghastly pairs for every good one?

    What am I saying? Boobs are like pizza. Even if they're not as great, they're still boobs.

    They're holding one down in Miami, but I'm thinking that with the Zika virus scare, the crowd of topless babes will be pretty thin. I bet only the old flabby bitches who already pumped out a few kids will be there. I'm not driving 3 hours down there for that.

    I don't think pics of these protestors would be very stimulating.
