Topless feminism? Let's nip it the bud

I see female celebs are photoshopping male nipples over their own, to protest at Instagram censorship. The #FreeTheNipple campaign is fighting for women's right to bare nipples just like men. Model Chrissy Teigen (inset) brought the campaign into the headlines after a topless photo she posted to Instagram was taken down. She reposted it several times and when it was continually removed, she came up with other ways to show everything but her nipples - like placing cans of hairspray over the offending body part. I have to say I find this confusing, it seems to me like a feminist movement that encourages toplessness. How is this is meant to be one in the eye for the patriarchy?
