Be prepared: April 4 is International Topless Jihad Day
« on: April 01, 2013, 08:29:36 AM »

I'm sure this will be a 'well watched' event around the world...

I wonder how much local 'support' they'll have...

well, maybe 'support' isn't the right phrase...

Well, I for one will keep an eye (or maybe even two eyes and the video camera) open for anything happening locally 8) 8) 8)

This makes me want to organize a local event just to see who shows up!

I'm sure Fuzz would help me get it rolling....

It seems like these protests were bigger in Europe.


NSFW warning - topless pics and vulgar language

Femen Stages a 'Topless Jihad'


Earlier today, members of Ukrainian feminist group Femen staged protests across Europe as they called for a "topless jihad." The demonstrations were in support of a young Tunisian activist named Amina Tyler. Last month, Tyler posted naked images of herself online, with the words "I own my body; it's not the source of anyone's honor" written on her bare chest. The head of Tunisia's "Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice," reportedly called for Tyler to be stoned to death for her putatively obscene actions, lest they lead to an epidemic. Tyler has since gone quiet, leading some to fear for her safety. Below are images from Femen's protests today in Sweden, Italy, Ukraine, Belgium, and France. A warning, nearly every photo depicts nudity, and most contain offensive language.

The cup sizes sure weren't.  Looks like it may have been a little chilly in Paris.

You have a keen eye for details.

I love ya, Fuzz, but I don't love your continued belittling of women and their role in government. Being hot is not a requirement for good governance.

Thanks for posting the link excelsior...  and the WARNING...

I viewed it very carefully...  held my hand in front of my eyes and only looked at the important parts and didn't read anything...  just to be safe!  I especially enjoyed the ones in Berlin since I have been there...  well, I had more clothing on though ;) ;) ;)  Looks like they're protests were tolerated more in some areas than in others.  I wonder if there were any major protests in the US?

Really?  I think the only thing I be"littled" in this instance was cup size of the participants.  I saw only one pair that even looked remotely close to D's.

And for the record, I supported women's role in government during the Burn the Bra Women's Movement and Sexual Revolution at many rally's across the Midwest.

It appears that President Obama has a keen eye as well.

President Obama bashed for calling Kamala Harris 'best-looking attorney general'

President Obama's comment that California attorney general Kamala Harris is the "best-looking attorney general" during a Democratic fund-raiser has led many people, including political strategist James Carville, to criticize the commander-in-chief for his remark.

"She's brilliant and she's dedicated, she's tough. ... She also happens to be, by far, the best-looking attorney general," Obama said during the Democratic National Committee luncheon in Atherton, Calif.

"It's true! C'mon," he continued as the crowd laughed, according to a pool report by Todd Gillman of the Dallas Morning News.

Someone should tell Obama that being hot is not a requirement for good governance.




On another note, after careful examination, there is one thing I noticed in these pictures...
and I'll bet ALL of you guys missed it!




Well?







ANYBODY? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ?



















French Police carry SigPros.


Probably 9mm, too.


Someone should tell them to carry a REAL gun!     ;D

What is it?  Her Adams Apple?

Does the US Military still use the 9 mm 92FS, or have they upgraded?

I think they are still stuck with the 9 mm due to NATO.
