National Go Topless Day Venice Beach 2010 This Sunday!

This Sunday, August 22nd, the Raelian Movement will stage the 3rd annual “Go Topless Day” in Venice Beach. “Go Topless Day” was started to celebrate women’s topfree rights by this UFO religion.

The Raelian philosophy maintains that life on Earth was the result of scientific creation by an advanced, extraterrestrial human civilization, the Elohim, mistaken for gods in the Bible.

“They created us scientifically in their image through genetic engineering,” Gary said. “So how can a body, a masterpiece, be perceived with shame?

If you want to party with the Raelians or just oogle some boobies (last year it seemed like 20 photographers per each set of breasts), the group meets at noon on Ocean Front Walk at Navy St. The march starts at 2PM and heads towards the “muscle beach” stage for speeches and entertainment from 3PM until 5PM. “Go Topless Day” is a national event you can find out about on their webpage.

On Aug 22, GoTopless Day 2010

Gotopless.org summons all men in America to

Cover their chests in the name of equal rights!

‘Topless equal rights for all or none!’

On Aug. 22, for the third consecutive year, U.S.-based GoTopless.org will stage a national Go-Topless Day protest to proclaim women’s constitutional right to go bare-chested in public. During the protest, while participating women go bare, male participants will cover their chests to comply with gender equal rights by wearing bikini tops or bras.

Sound ridiculous? It’s no more ridiculous than women having to wear tops at all time in this double-standard, legal topless battle.

For Rael, spiritual leader of the Raelian Movement (rael.org) and founder of Gotopless.org, the equation is simple: “As long as men can go topless, women should have the same constitutional right or men should also be forced to wear something that hides their chests.”

“We will force men to legally cover up if women can’t go bare,” agreed Nadine Gary, Raelian Priestess and President of Gotopless.org.

She criticized cities such as Ashland, Ore. (supposedly a topfree state), Asbury, N.J., and others that have recently passed ordinances against women’s right to go topless or that arrest women for doing so when local laws don’t even warrant this action (i.e., Madison, Wis.). “U.S. cities and states not recognizing women’s topless rights must be relentlessly sued to make them conform with gender equality,” Gary said.

The excuse that families and children may be uncomfortable around topless women mustn’t be considered, she said, explaining that the same excuse was used by defenders of segregation laws 50 years ago.

“Those laws were abolished nevertheless,” she said. “Thankfully, the U.S. Constitution isn’t swayed by racism or Puritanism for the benefit of families and children.”

For the Raelian Movement that sponsors GoTopless, nudity is a non-issue.

The Raelian philosophy maintains that life on Earth was the result of scientific creation by an advanced, extraterrestrial human civilization, the Elohim, mistaken for gods in the Bible.

“They created us scientifically in their image through genetic engineering,” Gary said. “So how can a body, a masterpiece, be perceived with shame?

Already, a handful of states, including New York and Maine, have come to terms with this legal reality and now honor women’s topfree rights. Last week, the city council of Santa Fe, N.M., turned down a city ordinance to ban women’s topfree rights because council members feared they could later be sued for violating gender equal rights.

Gary said GoTopless Day is always held at the end of August to honor Women Equality Day, Aug. 26, which commemorates the passage of women’s right to vote on Aug. 26, 1920.

She added that Aug. 22 events are planned both for cities where it’s illegal for women to go topless publicly, such as Los Angeles, Chicago, San Francisco, Seattle, Denver, Miami and Honolulu; and for cities where it’s already legal, including New York and Austin, Texas.
