'Free the Nipple' Bikini: What It Looks Like on Real Feminists (PHOTOS)​

gloria steinemSome things in life just aren't fair. At the top of that list for some women is the fact that men can walk around bare-chested and we can't. Thus the "Free the Nipple" movement was born. Women -- well, some women -- are tired of keeping their areolas out of sight. To support this fight, a bikini maker has created the Ta Ta Top. Which looks exactly like it sounds -- like a pair of exposed boobs.

People who have taken up this cause seem to believe it's the next evolution of feminism. Once it was the right to vote, then fair and equal wages (a fight we haven't won as far as I'm concerned). Now it's supposed to be this? I personally have a hard time buying that and wonder how notable feminists would feel about it too. So, The Stir has mocked up what it would look like if outspoken proponents of women's rights sported this Ta Ta Top. Take a look.

    She may become the first female President of the United States of America. It's doubtful she wants her ta-tas or any other body part on display.

  • Sarah Silverman

    As bold and ballsy as Silverman has always been, I bet she knows it would be harder to be taken seriously if she were to strut around topless all the time.

  • Gloria Steinem

    Can't imagine that the onetime leader of the Women's Liberation Movement in the '60s and '70s would take up this cause. Is this among the freedoms she so eloquently fought for?

  • President Barack Obama

    During his State of the Union, Obama argued that women are still unequal in the United States and the need for policies that can change that. Something tells me freeing the nipple wasn't what he had in mind.

  • Tina Fey

    Her brand of comedy has been coined "funnysmart feminism" and rightfully so. Her wit is incomparable. She might rock this top, but probably only as a gag.

  • Elizabeth Cady Stanton & Susan B. Anthony

    These woman are probably rolling over in their graves right now. They challenged laws and beliefs that kept women oppressed and ardently fought for the right to vote. Those were causes worth fighting for.

  • Ellen DeGeneres

    A vocal supporter of equal rights, she even did a segment on her talk show slamming sexist products. Would Ellen actually hit the beach in this?
