Off topic: The idiocy that is modern feminism: they stage a topless protest, and are angry men took pictures

They staged a topless parade down a busy public street "to bring attention to what they claim is a double standard when it comes to the public display of upper torsos."  Yet protest organizer Ty MacDowell said she was not happy by the number of men who showed up with cameras.

"I'm really upset by the men … all the men that are here, just like watching it like it's a parade," she said. 

Um, that's because -- it was a parade?

MacDowell said the point of the march was that a topless woman out in public "shouldn't attract any more attention than a man who walks around without a shirt."

Did you get that?  Squint hard and read it again.  Maybe that was your point, Ms. McDowell -- trust me, men don't care about your point. Men saw multiple naked breasts bouncing down the street, and millions of years of hard-wired Y-chromosome instinct kicked in.

"We should be able to walk down the street and not have this many men taking pictures of us," a participant shouted.

Really? Exactly why would you think that, my dear?  Just as you are allowed to show off your naked breasts in public, men are allowed to admire them, to be aroused by them, to make fun of them, to take pictures of them.  Why on earth would you think men's freedom should be restricted just because you say so?

You want to give teenage boys erections, knock yourselves out. But don't complain that men are paying too much attention to your naked boobs.

Let me amend that -- you should be able to parade around topless without men paying attention to your breasts -- if men and women were the same. The fact that you don't know they are different tells us everything we need to know about the idiocy that is modern feminism.
