100 Nude Women Protest Trump at the RNC

Maybe, this is the beginning of a trend, "setting the tone...."

100 Nude Women Protest Trump at the RNC

Can the power of the female nude neutralize the misogynist bigotry of the presumed Republican presidential nominee? Probably not, but the sight of 100 proudly naked women holding round mirror disks up to the sun in downtown Cleveland, Ohio on Sunday morning—the day before the city was slated to host the Republican National Convention—still reflected rays of hope across the internet.

The women were part of art project by Spencer Tunick, the photographer who has been organizing mass-scale nude shoots since 1994. He usually invites both men and women to take part in his installations, but for the past three years, he’s been planning a project called “Everything She Says Means Everything.” In it, a group comprised entirely of women would “[reflect] their anger through art against the hateful repressive rhetoric of many in the Republican Party towards women and minorities,” as Tunick writes on his website. Tunick told Esquire that the rise of the flagrantly sexist Trump, and his selection of the rigidly anti-abortion rights Mike Pence as his running mate, have only made the project more timely.

“I have two daughters—9 and 11—and I want them to grow up in a progressive world with equal rights and equal pay and better treatment for women, and I feel like the 100 women lighting up the sky of Cleveland will send this ray of knowledge onto the cityscape,” Tunick told Esquire. He projected the work far beyond the city limits via his Twitter and Instagram. “I think it will enlighten not only the delegates but set the vibe of the weekend, set a tone.”

A real class act and an idiot regarding equal pay.

Anything else you'd like to add, like, why anything you said has any credibility?

Just think back to the last time you stood up for something that you fervently believed in ... in the nude.

Remember the streaking days well. Local radio station would give out prizes for anyone that streaked a certain section of a main drag through the city, to a local head shop where they were broadcasting from.

Other than there is no wage gap and that more than likely a little intelligence and using actual facts will generally accomplish more than a pack of naked women and regurgitating liberal talking points that are not based on facts. That should cover it.

Quote:
Just then they came in sight of thirty or forty windmills that rise from that plain. And no sooner did Don Quixote see them that he said to his squire, "Fortune is guiding our affairs better than we ourselves could have wished. Do you see over yonder, friend Sancho, thirty or forty hulking giants? I intend to do battle with them and slay them. With their spoils we shall begin to be rich for this is a righteous war and the removal of so foul a brood from off the face of the earth is a service God will bless."

"What giants?" asked Sancho Patra.

"Those you see over there," replied his master, "with their long arms. Some of them have arms well nigh two leagues in length."

"Take care, sir," cried Sancho. "Those over there are not giants but windmills. Those things that seem to be their arms are sails which, when they are whirled around by the wind, turn the millstone."

"It is clear," replied Don Quixote, "that you are not experienced in adventures. Those are giants and if you are afraid turn aside and pray whilst I enter a fierce and unequal battle with them."

I think it will cause women to major in degrees that pay more than the ones they currently major in. Or perhaps it will cause someone with a women's and gender study degree to be paid the same as a mechanical engineer. What is odd is the men who dominate the degrees with higher pay did not get those degrees or the pay that comes with those degrees by posing naked in public. They generally choose the degree, study hard, then pursue a job in that field, thus yielding a higher pay than a women's study degree.
