A good read and a great idea for a theme to this month's Critical Mass Ride. Men and women ride topless in support of breastfeeding in public. An excerpt from the article by Hilde Festerling:

..Breasts Breasts Breasts! Summer of 2012,  Bare Your Breasts! Bare them for us all! Bare them on the beach, bare them in the street, Bare them at the park, bare them at the dinner party! Breastfeeders, bare them proud, you are the reason we are called mammals. Women, i hereby challenge you to go topless at least once in the last  days of summer 2012.

A proposal: There is a little-known but new and growing holliday called Go Topless Day. This needs to blow up. Celebrated last year on August 28th, it would be perfectly timed for the August Critical Mass bike ride, which is usually the ‘wedding themed ride’- badly in need of reclamation as the Topless Ride, I’d say. Topless Bikeriding feels great, by the way. The air around your breasts is scientifically designed to be ‘breathable.’ ...

...the rest of the article is here. Seriously, go read it all (only a couple pages long with great pictures). You won't be disappointed I promise.

Men too! Even if our nipples are "useless" we really should shop up and show our support. It's a simple case of tit-for-tat (tit for tit? ...sorry, I'm a Dad now so I have to make bad puns)
