We had a little bit of fun with PETA last week, taking some time to mock the "news" media for taking some rather selective (by which I mean "pornographic") photographs of a PETA protest in New York. In the process of mocking, I mentioned as an aside that the Ukranian group FEMEN puts PETA to shame on any day of the week.
And thus, it turns out that today is one of those days. Behold, in the following NOT SAFE FOR WORK photographs, the press didn't need to worry about selective angles, careful crops, telephoto lenses, or any of that craziness -- because FEMEN is more than capable of handling their own.
Presented for your "viewing" "pleasure,"
As you can see, they're definitely far superior to PETA, in that they don't require gimmicks like body paint to "enhance" their image. And, of course, this also explains why this (mostly) family-friendly blog can carry no example at the top of this particular article.
Oh and, uhh, yeah... I'm doing this for the "art." Just like I read wire news services for the "articles."
An activist of the Ukrainian women's political movement FEMEN holds placard reading "Stable quiet" at an old cemetery in Kiev during their protest entitled "Stable like a cemetery" on January 12, 2011. The activists are protesting against the so-called "stable" policy of Ukraine's President Viktor Yanukovych and his government.

As usual: Feel free to let me know if you can figure out how this qualifies as "news."
