Until 1937 in new York men also had no right to appear in public with naked nipples.
In 1992, this ban was abolished and women. “The law must be the same for everyone. The law is the law,” commented one of the participants of the community.
Despite this, many still perceive such behavior as a violation of public order. Even more complicated the situation is in other States — 37 of them women are forbidden to expose even the nipples for breast-feeding. In Louisiana, such an act could cost the woman to three years in prison and a fine of $2 500.
The problem does not seem far-fetched: according to Google trends for 2015, the search query in English “freedom for nipples” was more popular than other topical issues like “equal pay” and “gender equality”. Naked women’s Breasts — still a taboo on Facebook and instagram. To circumvent this prohibition, at the same time showing the hypocrisy of such policies, on their Topless photos in social networks girl in Photoshop is applied to my nipples for men.
“This is ridiculous! How do they differ? Why is one nipple to show, and the other not?” — says the girl who went Topless on times square in mid-2015, to claim their rights.
According to one of the activists of the global movement Free the Nipple, such action is an opportunity to speak in favour of the equation of women with men, urging others to stop looking at women’s nipples as a sexual object, to defend the right to breastfeed in public places and ultimately to see zero reactions to naked Breasts.
