#FreeTheNipple stages topless Twitter protest in solidarity with student nipple-freer [NSFW]

Feminist freedom fighters the world over are posting their tits on Twitter in solidarity this week after one of their own received negative attention for trying to implement a “Free The Nipple” day at her school in Iceland.

According to The Independent, it all started when a 17-year-old Icelandic girl named Adda Þóreyjardóttir Smáradóttir, chair of the Feminist society at The Commercial College of Iceland (which is, in American terms, a high school), declared March 26 to be “Free The Nipple Day.” This prompted a male classmate to post a photo of his own bare chest, noting that both boys and girls are generally expected to wear shirts to school. This misogynist oppressor soon received his comeuppance.

“It [facing mild criticism] was difficult and I had to delete the picture for a few minutes, but it was enough to start a revolution,” she wrote in a Facebook post translated from Icelandic by the magic of Google. “Today, the debate about #FreeTheNipple has been great, with girls posting topless pictures online as solidarity and struggle work.”

And what, pray tell, does this feminist revolution look like? Shapely Scandinavian breasts, mostly:

Take that, patriarchy!

Sufficiently chastened by this near fatal blow, the patriarchy retreated back to its control center to masturbate regroup.
