Nudity has long been a part of female empowerment and gay protests. Public nudity as protest, is essentially a shock tactic and like any other social phenomenon susceptible to the whims of time past, nudity is fast losing its impact due to overexposure and the overcharging of our sensitivities and their consequent numbing. It is perhaps this atrophy that drives us to push the envelope incessantly. Shocking a jaded culture can be very hard work.
