Thoughts on Free the Nipple from a Topfree Activist Point...

Thoughts on Free the Nipple from a Topfree Activist Point of View Last week I attended the much-anticipated Free the Nipple movie premiere at the IFC Theater in NYC. The screening took place the night before its official release date. They had a little press-junket beforehand with director / co-writer and actor Lina Esco, her co-stars Lola Kirke, Casey LaBow and others. For this premiere, Lina set aside some free tickets for women whoíd go topfree in the audience to support the cause. Naturally, I was excited to see the movie and quickly signed myself up! free the nipple poster logo topless equality topfree movie review yna Now, for some backgroundÖ In 2011, I first learned about womenís legal right to go topfree in public in NY state and Iíve been a bit of a top-free activist ever since. ( http://youngnaturi free-not-topless-n ew-york/ ) Though itís been legal since 1992, that hasnít prevented the NYPD from arresting a number of topless women over the years, myself included! For those who may not know, I was arrested on Wall Street for being topless during an art performance in August of 2011 ( http://youngnaturi l-street-arrest/ ). Though the unjustifiable charges (disorderly conduct) were dropped, ( http://youngnaturi formers-arrested-i n-ocularpation-go- to-court/ ) I wanted an apology from the NYPD / NYC. I also wanted to make an impact that would help stop this kind of thing from happening to other women. So, after much deliberation, I decided to sue the city and I won. My lawsuit was one of a few that led NYC to issue a memo to all of NYPD in February 2013, reminding them about the legality of women going topfree in public. Iíve also spent sunny days with The Outdoor Coed Topless Pulp Fiction Appreciation Society ( http://youngnaturi free-reading-pulp- fiction-yna/ ) and in late August of 2011, I organized a top-free day in Central Park. ( href="http:// youngnaturistsamer ay-2011-central-pa rk/ ) So this is how topfree equality became one of the causes that I care about and advocate for. Iím also a naturist, and while one might think Iím just supporting more ďnudityĒ in public, Iím not. Being a naturist doesnít mean wanting to be naked in public everywhere. Nor does it mean that I want to be naked all the time. My support of this cause comes from a deep-rooted feminist outlook. Itís about the gender equality. I donít like being discriminated against because I have a vagina, which is what topless laws do. I donít like society trying to control womenís sexuality using modesty rules and laws. I donít like society blaming female victims of sexual assault because they were ďasking for itĒ through their state of dress. I donít like that breastfeeding women are asked to cover up or go ďsit in a cornerĒ. I donít like society slut-shaming women ( href="http:// youngnaturistsamer ng/ ), especially those who go topfree or wear skimpy clothing on a hot summer day (while accepting the sexual objectification of women on billboards). Female sexuality is used to sell products, but as soon as women try to own their bodies or sexuality, they are vilified, shamed, attacked...
