National Free Your Breasts Day! June 20, 2012

1,2,3-GO! Bras in the fire and chant with me! No more bras! Come on now! No more bras! Okay. Alright. Just having a little fun with folk.

Are you sitting down? OK–good. Did you know there was supposedly never an Olympic sized event in the sixties wherein dozens, upon dozens, of women liberated their formerly captive breasts from their bras in a frenzy of bra burning glory?

Apparently the myth of burning of bras, nylons, girdles and other constricting clothing the male power culture foisted on subjugated women, was symbolically tossed in a trash can to protest the Miss America Contest in 1968. Symbolically. Nothing nearly as epic as the overblown images in many of our minds. Just a brief fire and some unfortunately floppy-breasted women. However, ladies, this fact NO LONGER HAS TO BE TRUE! We can all burn our bras AND FREE OUR BREASTS! It doesn’t even have to be political. Let’s leave the politics of clothes behind, ladies. We have all been influenced in one way or another by something or someone. So let’s not fall into that small-minded line of thinking. I’m picking a day: June 20, 2012. It’s the summer solstice. A good day to do something special. I’m daring you to FREE YOUR BREASTS! Hell–I already have…
