The Bare Breast Movement: Wants Female Breasts De-Sexualized

April 08, 2008 By: Nekkid blogger Category: Aftonbladet, Feminist, Media, Movement, Sex, Sweden, Topless, Washington Post, Wikipedia

Today there was a big meeting in Stockholm, Sweden, about the bare breast (“Bara Bröst” in Swedish) movement. The topic is why naked female breasts provoke some people so much.

image The Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet has an interview with one of the participants, feminist Nour El-Refai says that “I think people should let women’s breasts in peace. We women should be allowed to de-sexualize our breasts if we want to. We are not to blame for the sexualization of breasts. A de-sexualization of breasts would increase my freedom as a woman.”

Nour firmly believes that the bath house protests of the bare breast movement in Sweden represent a good approach for the movement, as they are visible manifestations that attract attention.

She says de-sexualization of breasts is important in order for the sexes to be able to act natural: “I do not get wet by watching the naked breasts of a man, so why should it be that way for men?”

The feminist movement in Scandinavia has been very successful in a large number of areas. Now a growing number of feminists, especially in Sweden and Denmark, want to fight for the right to behave as men do with respect to their bodies. They essentially want to be able to be topless wherever and whenever men are allowed to be topless. In public bath houses, at the beach, and similar places. They also want to be able to take off their shirts on the soccer field after a match, like the men do. And so on.

A short statement of their goals in English can be found on one of their blogs. Also, Washington Post has had an article about this movement. And here is a Wikipedia article (unfortunately in Swedish).

    Breasts are natural, and naturally sexy. This woman needs to shut up and deal with it. Sure maybe sex is overdone these days, but completely “de-sexualized” ? Come on.

  2. interesting. Now why did the PI use a photo of a young, firm breast of a childless woman rather than one from a 60 year old mother of 6?

    Oh, I don’t know….biology perhaps? You may be able to pass a law that states that women can expose there breasts any time they want, but I can almost guarantee that you will NEVER be able to keep all men from looking at them in a sexual manner.

  4. I think if you pass a law that woman can expose their breast at all times, men will be less excited by the sight of a bare breast. This will be most pronounced with men who are born and raised with constant exposure to the bare female breast.

    But any part of the woman can be sexy. Elbows can be sexy. Who cares? What is the problem? I should not be stopped from doing something because other people may find it sexy.

  5. I think that women should be allowed to expose their breasts. I think Boobs are great and I would love to see every woman’s boobs. Long Live the Feminist movement !
