Former city council member Carl Mumpower created an anti-topless site GoBrainless.org in response to Asheville’s Go Topless pro-topless rallies:

We appreciate everyone’s efforts to help us turn on the lights.

Together, we stopped last year from becoming this year. Lots of bad stuff and stupid stuff this year too – but 14 police officers didn’t find any broken laws – just broken lives and broken dreams and protest pretense…

Topless, shameless, and lawless – Asheville’s sexual performance street party is over…

The site sponsored a photo contest for this year’s rally, with cash prizes for the most degrading images:

How will it work?

How about a cash award for 3 photo contest categories…

1) Most degrading gotopless.org event moment for women-

2) Most degrading example of public sexual performance-

3) Most degrading example of child abuse-
(by allowing a minor to observe sexual performance or otherwise directly participate in the event)-

1st Place winners in each category will receive $200. 1st Runners Up will receive a $25 gift certificate from a downtown Asheville restaurant.

All submitted pictures will be shared with the authorities, media outlets, and those who read this website.

If enough people are given enough visual examples, enough embarrassing moments, and enough evidence of the failure by elected officials and the authorities to act – maybe Ashevilleans will start saying enough!

Here’s the site’s $200 winner for “Most degrading gotopless.org event moment for women”:

And the first runner-up in the same category, in which a cardboard cutout of Mumpower makes a guest appearance:

There were no winners in the other two categories.

    I just like to feel the sun on my skin…..all of my skin. In Europe…a topless woman in the park wouldn’t raise an eyebrow. This just shows how immature and puritanical America still is. We shouldn’t even be debating this topic in this day and age.

    mumpower is an idiot. he is trying to shove his so called religious beliefs down peoples throats but is forgetting to tell people how much money he has spent down at the treasure club. maybe mumpower should be more careful because some of us arent afraid to let his skeletons out of the closet so to speak 😉

    Cudos to Mister Mumpower’s brilliant ruse… “I’ll pay you $200 for you to send me all your smutty photos! Then I will get to see all the women’s boobies—because it really would be immoral of me to go down town and ogle them in person.”
