Somebody cue Poison’s Bret Michaels, because we’ve found “something to believe in …”
That something? Topless Jihad … a European-based feminist movement which aims to expose the repressiveness of radical Islam toward women. Their weapon? Public nudity.
“We’re free, we’re naked, it’s our right, it’s our body, it’s our rules, and nobody can use religion, and some other holy things, to abuse women, to oppress them,” one of the protesters said this week. “And we’ll fight against them. And our boobs will be stronger than their stones.”
Hmmmm … you know,in the case of some implants they’re probably right.
In addition to generally raging against the mistreatment of women in Islamic society, Topless Jihad was also specifically protesting the treatment of 19-year-old Tunisian activist Amina Tyler (NSFW here), who was allegedly captured and admitted to a psychiatric ward for baring her breasts.
Of course that punishment wasn’t deemed sufficient by one Islamic preacher …
“The young lady should be punished according to sharia, with 80 to 100 lashes, but (because of) the severity of the act she has committed, she deserves to be stoned to death,” he said. “Her act could bring about an epidemic. It could be contagious and give ideas to other women. It is therefore necessary to isolate (the incident).”
Nice. man …
Oh, and somebody better alert Newt Gingrich to all of this … because God knows only he can protect us from the same sort of thing happening in America.
Anyway … wanna see more of the topless protestors? Click on the numbered links below, but consider yourself warned – the images are NSFW (a.k.a. “Not Safe For Work”).
