Amsterdam Celebrated Women's Day With 'Giant Floating B**bs', And There's More Than Meets The Eye!

On Friday, March 8, a large group of giant breasts could be seen floating down the canals in Amsterdam in celebration of International Women’s Day. But there's more to the story.

In a bizarre yet highly empowering turn of events, on Friday, March 8, 2019, a substantial gathering of gigantic bosoms could be seen drifting down the canals in Amsterdam in the festivity of International Women's Day.

Now even though, most of us would be shocked and amused by the rather 'raunchy' site if it passed us by, however, that's exactly the point of the whole event.

"This action is to celebrate the fact that b**bs are just b**bs. Like the noses on our faces, they are simply part of the body, part of what makes us women," expressed coordinator 72andSunny Amsterdam in an official statement. However, the idea of the floating bosoms wasn't just born out of thin air, it came to life when a survey was conducted among 160 ladies regarding their bosoms.

Most of the ladies who took part in the survey, 78 percent to be precise, said they felt humiliated by their bosoms at one point or the other in their lives. The creative agency considered it odd that something so natural like having bosoms could be so troublesome for a lady on a day-to-day basis.

Consequently, a group of ladies from 72andSunny Amsterdam made an assorted variety of bosoms to float on the Dutch capital's canals, to humbly request the onlookers that ladies' body parts be free from disgrace and shame, badgering, oversight, and the never-ending objectification.

"We think it’s pretty strange that as a society we are so stressed out about b**bs. Our team’s aim is to highlight the scrutiny and unnecessary sexualization that b**bs still have to go through. We want to open up the dialogue about everyone having an opinion about this supposedly ‘controversial’ body part," said Laura Visco, Deputy Executive Creative Director at 72andSunny Amsterdam.

"You still can’t post any pictures showing nipples on Facebook or Instagram, for example, it not showing br*astfeeding or, say, mastectomy scars," she added. "Cultural policing of women’s bodies starts early and only gets worse with age. Too big, too small, too old, too young – b**bs are judged, inspected, grabbed and censored."

"At 72andSunny Amsterdam, we believe all bosoms are wonderfully equal. No judgment here. They’re just b**bs," further stated Vico. Drifting in the Amsterdam canals were a wide assortment of bosoms: small, large, hairy, fake, pierced, and all different shapes and colors.  



"To us, they are all equal, and we feel the world should just let them be. Why should b**bs have to follow some unwritten social and cultural rules? Let’s set them free, and support their fundamental rights as funbags this International Women’s Day with the hashtag #JustB**bs," concluded Visco.
