FEMEN: Topless Trophy Tipping
This woman resisting her suited male suitors is a member of the Ukrainian feminist movement FEMEN. FEMEN is kind of like Kickette, only they’re braver and less likely to be arrested for public disorder offenses. Their supporters have an aversion to wearing bras and enjoy throwing the EURO 2012 trophy around podia to protest against the upcoming tourney.
It isn’t so much the footy they have a problem with, but rather the massive boost any large gathering of blokes gives to the sex tourism industry.
While yesterday’s feisty escapade cooled as quickly as it started, the group’s past activities have seen the tables turned on them, with protesters ended up assaulted and threatened with violence. The fact that their penmanship is so pristine, their message placement so not crooked and that they’re prepared to risk this to spread their message has inspired us to launch our own #OccupyFootballersPants protest.
What do you think Kickettes? A worthy cause or a wasted effort (ours, not theirs)?
