One young lady in particular was walking on the footpath on the main road and had the tiniest triangle in front and was as close to naked as anyone could be,’ he wrote.’While any man would enjoy “the view”,

I believe women are very much demeaning and cheapening themselves, portraying themselves as sex objects, then decrying it when men see them that way.’The volunteer said ‘bare bums’ are just as erotic as bare breasts so they should be barred in the same way.’If not banned at the beach, very definitely banned the moment they are off the beach,’ he wrote.

‘This certainly should not be allowed in public pools or theme/water parks which are very much more family orientated. Young kids don’t need to see women’s bums. A demonstration urging attendees to ‘free the peach’ has been planned along the Gold Coast after a local businessman called for a ban on G-string bikinis.

Both men and women have been urged to meet at Kurrawa Beach at 6am on Friday to support ‘freedom of choice’ when it comes to beachwear.

Barr Body and Swim founder Rebecca Pask has organised the demonstration labelling the suggested ban on bikinis as ‘unwarranted’ and ‘unwelcome’.

Ian Grace initially made the call in a letter to Gold Coast mayor Tom Tate and doubled down on his comments after they sparked backlash around the country.’

A wave of controversy has swept across Australia’s shores as a local businessman ignited a fiery debate by petitioning for the banning of thong bikinis on the nation’s beaches. In response, an organized protest, advocating for the freedom to wear thong bikinis, is scheduled for Friday. The contentious letter, addressed to the mayor, has triggered a passionate defence of personal choice and expression.

Thong bikinis, known for their minimal coverage, have long been a staple of beachwear worldwide. However, this recent call for their prohibition has struck a nerve within the community, sparking a spirited reaction. Advocates of the thong bikini argue that individuals should have the right to wear what they please without fear of censorship or judgment. They contend that beach attire should not be subject to the whims of moral policing.

Free the Peach!!
