Alright ladies it's time to let the "girls" out this weekend. Mark your calendars this Sunday, August 21st is "National Go Topless Day". Thanks to KyAnn Lewis managing editor of HeadDrama.com, for the memo.
Women across the nation are encouraged to do just that "Go Topless". The organization GoTopless.org was founded in 2007 on the notion that all women have the same constitutional right to be bare-chested in public places as men.
"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, founder of GoTopless.org and spiritual leader of the Raelian Movement (rael.org) says.
In the past, women have worn red tape with an "X" covering their nipples, or just straight up letting it all hang out, in the name of equal rights.
Did you know that in all but a few select locations across the nation, it is illegal for women to show their nipples? Good news in the Lone Star state, it is legal to go topless in Austin. So ditch the bra, strap on the cowgirl boots and head to A-town. This Sunday from noon to 3 p.m. you can Go Topless on 6th Street at Congress, without getting cuffed.
This all brings up the question: is it a woman's constitutional right to go topless?
