20. So it's official. NOBODY has pubic hair anymore.

I must say, I admire their commitment. An arrest for naked protesting is not the kind of conversation I myself am looking to have with any prospective employers, but, good for them for having the courage to do this.

AIDS activists arrested in nude protest at House Speaker John Boehner's office

The three arrested had the words 'AIDS cuts kill' painted on their bodies and had linked arms with four men who also disrobed as part of the protest.

WASHINGTON — Three women AIDS activists saying they wanted to highlight the "naked truth" about potential spending cuts in HIV programs were arrested Tuesday after taking their clothes off in the lobby of House Speaker John Boehner's office.

The trio had the words "AIDS cuts kill" painted on their bodies and had linked arms with four men who also disrobed as part of the protest. The nude protesters, along with dozens of other clothed demonstrators chanted slogans, including: "People with AIDS are under attack. What do we do? Fight back."

The three women were arrested by Capitol Police as they mingled with other protesters in the hall outside Boehner's district office after putting their clothes back on. The naked male protesters appeared to have left.

"People with AIDS are sick and tired of being pushed over the cliff," said Jennifer Flynn, 40, of New York City, who was among those arrested. "We need to make sure they stop going after people with AIDS."
