'Go Topless Day' and its Raëlian Connection
This past Sunday, August 28, 2016 was International Go Topless Day, and women through out the United States bared their breasts in protest against laws that prohibit women from going topless in public. Compare this to the situation in France where women are being prevented from dressing modestly due to attempted bans on the wearing of burkinis on beaches.
I became aware of a strange twist to this when I read a recent article on sputniknews.com. Sputnik news is reporting that, according to French writer Roger Gonnet, Go Topless Day is not motivated by a support of "women's rights", but is actually a recruitment drive for the UFO cult, Raëlism.
Raëlian priestess and President of GoTopless, Nadine Gary, in an interview, told sfgate.com,"Monotheistic religions are the culprit for the guilt humans feel about their naked body, their sensuality, their sexuality with of course a woman as the ultimate instigator of 'the original sin'".
Is it merely a coincidence that the movement to ban the rather modest swimwear know as birkinis and the movement pushing for women being permitted to go topless in public, both have their origins in France.....as does the Raëlian religious cult.
I'm not saying that the Raëlians are behind the birkini ban, but there is a French connection behind all this.
