Patrick Carroll forwarded this story from the Sacramento Bee:
Mendocino County women who have been baring their breasts at various venues to protest the war in Iraq are in Sacramento federal court seeking an order prohibiting the California Highway Patrol from arresting them during a planned noon demonstration Monday at the Capitol.
The women’s group, Breasts Not Bombs, is suing CHP Commissioner Mike Brown and two of his officers over a warning that if the women demonstrate while topless, they will be arrested and charged with indecent exposure and disorderly conduct.
Rights issues aside, when confronted with the choice of either breasts or bombs, the correct decision is “both.”
Seriously, though, the police need to cool it – and the women need a buy a clue. If they wonder why a misogynist culture wants to blow up Americans, maybe someday they’ll understand that protests like these are part of the reason.
Me, I’m a big fan of breasts. Which is why the answer is and must be “boobs and bombs.”
