bill-swift - May 23, 2012

When I first read about the Euro-2012 (short for 2012 UEFA European Football Championship) having to step up security because of the promised attacks by a group of activists, I thought they had heard of some bombing or other kind of violent attack that was being planned.

Then I heard that it was by a group called FEMEN, a Ukrainian group of women that was trying to bring attention to the sex tourists trade, international marriage agencies, sexism and other social, national and international ills I thought okay; worthy cause. Then I heard that they protest by taking their tops off and baring their breasts.

They go topless--as a protest.

Immediately I wondered why these lovely ladies didn't want to protest NFL games. Heck, we have a lot of jerks in those games. Every year there are stories about guys being involved in domestic violence. Things like the Minnesota Vikings Boat Trip a few years ago sounds right up their alley!

Apparently, they are based in Kiev (where the above video was shot), and are focused on improving the lives of women in the Ukraine. Don't worry guys. Whenever the group opens an office in the United States we'll be sure to let you know.

For now, soccer fans all across Europe will have to deal with the disruption that naked women can cause. Darn.
