    Topless Swedish bathers: 'They're just breasts'

    They're "just breasts"! This is the rallying cry of a network of women who have launched a campaign for the right to bathe topless at Sweden's swimming pools.

    A new wave of feminists have been angered by an incident in September in which two bare-breasted young women were called ashore by a lifeguard at a swimming pool in Uppsala. When they refused to cover up, they were asked to leave the premises.

    Speaking to The Local, Ragnhild Karlsson , 22, explained the womens' motives for swimming without bikini tops.

    "It's a question of equality. I think it's a problem that women are sexualized in this way. If women are forced to wear a top, shouldn't men also have to?"

    Outraged by what they regarded as discrimination, a group of women in southern Sweden made a show of solidarity by establishing the Bara Bröst network. (The name translates both as 'Bare Breasts' and 'Just Breasts'.)

    Me too.
    Is there a petition I can sign? I'm a committed feminist in this case.

    There could be the age old 'teenage' problem of not being able to get out of the pool cause you've got a bit excited watching the topless swedish bathers frolic in the water.

    Which can only lead to more exercise for Swedish men, who will become healthier, and will therefore benefit the population as a whole.
    I see this as a public health issue and shall be offering my full support.

    Science isn't about why, it's about why not. You ask: why is so much of our science dangerous? I say: why not marry safe science if you love it so much. In fact, why not invent a special safety door that won't hit you in the butt on the way out, because you are fired. - Cave Johnson
