The feminist activist group FEMEN —otherwise known as the naked feminists or “topless warriors” — is at it again.
Their latest protest, Thursday in Kiev, was held to oppose the staging of the Euro 2012 soccer championships in the Ukraine.
More precisely, they protested the probability that soccer fans will come to Ukraine looking for sex-tourism, Gazeta reported.
Naturally, and as always with the FEMEN ladies, the protest happened in the nude. Well, if you don‘t count the penis hat and granny panties.
The women of FEMEN, whose mantra is “Came, Stripped, Conquered,” dressed up in penis costumes and stood on a flower bed, strategically positioned between the legs of the soccer championship mascots Slavek and Slavko.
Yes, with Slavek and Slavko in a horizontal position, the ladies standing in their crotch area did manage to look like erect, uncircumcised penises.
This protest is just another one in a series planned against the soccer championships by FEMEN.
A couple of weeks ago, one of the FEMEN ladies stole a Euro 2012 Cup trophy, also to protest sex tourism:
Fears of the rise in sex tourism fuelled by rowdy soccer fans seem to accompany any major sporting event, especially soccer championship.
When I reported from South Africa before the World Cup in 2010, some 40,000 sex workers were expected to cater to the fans. At the end of the day, that number proved to be exaggerated.
But sex tourism at the Euro Cup could be a completely different beast in Ukraine.
