Bracott' to take place at Braden River High after student was told to cover nipples with bandages

Lizzy Martinez, the girl who decided not to wear a bra and was then told to hide her nipples at Braden River High School, is holding a "bracott" with fellow students on Monday.

Participating girls can forgo their bras, and participating boys could place bandages over their shirts — a reference to the incident on April 2, when school officials asked Martinez to put on a second shirt and then cover her nipples with bandages. Martinez, 17, said students can wear shirts that include a message if they feel uncomfortable with the other options.

The bracott, she said, is a form of silent protest that speaks not only to what happened at the school, but also what happens around the country.

5. About time

I am sick of this generation's nipple phobia ... The bra's today's youth wear reminds me of the old foam Big Mac containers from the 70s..

How I miss the attitude of the 60s,70s and early 80s when women went braless and bras were lace and not today's styrofoam pre-formed junk.. .
