This Bikini Top Sticks Two Fingers Up To Censorship
« on: June 27, 2014, 11:56:29 pm »
Head to a beach this summer and you might see a bunch of women walking around with their nipples on show. But, before you drop your ice-cream cone on the floor and gawk, know that all may not be as it first seems.

The women may very well be sporting the new TaTa Top - a bikini top with two pink nipples emblazoned onto the cups.

At first glance the top may seem like some hilarious prank, but dig slightly below the surface and its creators have a distinctly more feminist agenda.



While men are free to walk shirtless as they please, being topless if you're a woman is illegal in some American states.

With that in mind the bizarrely realistic garment has been created in order to tackle the lack of gender equality when it comes to bearing all.

On their website the makers of the bikini, Robyn Graves and Michelle Lytle, write: "Why can’t girls be topless? If you really think about it, what’s the difference between a man’s nipples and a woman’s? Is it really just the extra breast tissue? Is it the fact that women’s nipples are paired with a vagina?

"Is it the presence of a real and true female nipple bare to the world that is so offensive, that is so horrid that it must be kept covered?

"Who is this law protecting and what are they protecting them from? What message does it send to young women about their bodies? That they should be ashamed and keep them covered?"

Although not directly associated, the bikini hits (online) shelves in the wake of the #FreeTheNipple movement.

The campaign - originally started by filmmaker Lina Esco - has seen hundreds of women parade topless around New York to end gender-specific double standards.

#FreeTheNipple got a celebrity boost when Scout Willis, daughter of Bruce Willis and Demi Moore, strolled topless through the city, documenting it on Twitter.

The TaTa Top will allow women to support the campaign in a way that's completely legal (and brilliantly sneaky).



"You look topless...but you aren’t, and therefore, are not breaking any laws," the website reiterates.

"If the sight of uncovered nipples makes you shudder in fear or pop off in anger, then game on and may the breast girl win."

The statement bikini is currently only available for light skin tones, but according to the group's Instagram account, more skin tones are in production.

The TaTa Top is on sale for $28 (£16) with $5 from every purchase going to breast cancer charity the Lynn Sage Cancer Research Foundation.

I became aware of my destiny: to belong to the critical minority as opposed to the unquestioning majority.

Very Clever! I almost thought she was just wearing a clear top for a second!

Do you know what's funny?

Facebook removed the photos of this top deeming it "offensive".

This is great, It really drives home the obvious inequality when it comes to being nude from the waist up.   :423

This is great. I think that this will really drive home the message of equality. One thing to note, if you study human anatomy you will find that male and female breast are exactly the same. The only difference is that in puberty, a female's breasts receive hormones and a male's do not. So breast equality is just a matter of fighting sexism. Also the whole mentality of "What about the children?!?!" is hilarious because the breast are made for the children. No wonder kids are growing so messed up. The organ made for them is hated and feared. Thanks for posting Chris.

That is an awesome top. Do they should make a matching bottom?  :909 Perhaps a male version too, perhaps that would that be too risque for the general population.

This is fantastic! The stigma about women's breasts is absolutely ridiculous! They are no different. I really hope to see these this summer.

I think the way the laws are worded, you could do the opposite and be legal.  Put stickers over the nipples and not wear a top.  Its the view of the nipple that is said to be "obscene" legally.

Cool article, hope they become popular, if for nothing else the charity donation to cancer research would be good, and hopefully more good will come from it..
