    Feminism classes don't usually exist per se, but basic feminist principles are taught to every student in every school. One of these are equal rights to women.

    So, the school discussion was about European women ganging up half naked on a few streets in many countries, from the Ukraine to France, to conduct demonstrations, that they are not simply sex objects.

    My argument was, that logically, if feminism demands equal rights, then it is exactly logical, that where there is no law against men going half naked, then women should be allowed too. Furthermore, I pointed out, that the fear of sexualization is a statistical process, so if all or most women go half naked, then it stops being sexual or even noticeable.

    But most teachers disagree with me, and most guys are ready to buy the teachers argument that feminism is not about going half naked on the street. I think the teachers are wrong, because logically equal rights should directly allow it.

    Your take?

    I think half naked demonstrations are very successful, as they are capable of putting the large numbers into the statistics, that are necessary to control the level of sexualization that females receive.

    I think one should be able to pose nude in porn and be a object. If they don't care too then don't do it. Freedom is all about choices.

    I think this is about being half naked, not fully nude, because most laws in most countries prevent men too from being fully nude. So the feminism argument should enforce the right for women to be half nude on streets, not fully nude.

    Although as a guy I would have no objection. Public transport and restaurants would want to demand panties though for seating protection of furniture, I guess.

    Seems like a pretty ridiculous thing to protest about in such dark days.

    I understand the argument, but I find it is an folly, because men also do not walk down the street shirtless, generally.
    You see that there are one man shirtless? NYC-crowds-3275(1).jpg


    Who wants to walk half-naked in the street? I think that only who are a very narrow-minded people.

    It seems that "feminism" is just an excuse of exhibitionism.

    It can be a choice, yes. But how about the legal right to do so? I think women don't have that right, only men do.

    Dark? European women are all whites. With that said, topless walking has indeed been the norm for centuries in Africa.

    I have not read the law which prohibits that women are half nude. The women have also can be a choice it, same as like the men.

    Someone needs to tell the OP he can see naked ladies on the internet - and very likely of higher quality than the hairy beasts who would participate in some angry, unhygienic protest against heterosexuality out in the streets.
