The Free The Nipple movement has gained a lot of traction, making its way all the way up the chain of social media to her majesty Kendall Jenner. Now, freed nipples will have even more freedom with this Sunday’s “holiday,” Go Topless Day.

The day seems like a step in the right direction for those who want to reclaim nudity. Women should wear what they want when they want, and taking Go Topless Day for its face value suggests just that, according to supporters. It’s liberating, it’s radical, it’s the bra-burning feminism that challenges the way we think about bodies.

According to the GoTopless website, Go Topless Day organized by women, for women, and scheduled to coincide with Women’s Equality Day. “It is only logical that GoTopless Day protests (or celebrations depending on the legal status of your city) would fall around Women’s Equality Day since the right to go topless for women is based on gender equality as their right to vote once was,” the organization writes on its page.

Unfortunately, but perhaps not surprisingly, plenty of men are expressing their enthusiasm on Twitter. Will Go Topless Day just be another opportunity for leering, or slut-shaming?
