Marin women to march naked

2003-01-04 23:55:37+00 by Dan Lyke 10 comments

Not credited because, well, it sounds like maybe he didn't want credit for this one, but a reader suggested that I note that Marin women will march naked for peace tomorrow. Ya know, I'd go into the city for it, but... well... going into the city to see naked women isn't that much of an appeal any more. It's true, California does make you jaded.

So did you go anyway? Did you march naked? Enquiring minds want to know.

I don't understand the tie in between nudity and peace. What am I missing?

I'm with you, Larry. Lots of years ago, my ex and I used a Printshop letterhead with doves and the slogan "Fighting for peace is like fucking for chastity." I suggest that stripping for peace is like ironing for chastity.

It's an act that nearly guarantees press coverage. and it can be fun and entertaining.

And in our society.. we have Nuked for Peace, and sadly, may again.

Larry; there isn't one (IMHO). The nudity is only about getting attention.

It may place attention on them but it doesn't focus the attention on their message. I have no idea what their argument for peace is. I think its just an excuse to walk naked down the street.

I agree. Besides, who needs an excuse to get naked?

Whoops. I conflated two articles, the one above is about the one in San Francisco on the 18th, here's a follow-up article to yesterday's West Marin efforts. Um... Well, it sounds like a good excuse to get naked, I don't think they're terribly coherent.

"We're asking the women of the world to withhold sex," Sheehan said, hearkening back to Aristophanes' play "Lysistrata." "We've reached that point. War is not healthy for men of war."

These people must be stopped.

The women - of all ages, some lithesome and some less so

Lyrically put...
