It’s not like topless girls are a new attraction on the Internet – for some, that’s the only reason to bother. But what if nudity was just an artistic statement, a protest, a backdrop to what was really being said? Podcaster/vidcaster Soccergirl, a.k.a. Anni, is more of a breast activist than a blatant nudist, but that’s beside the point.

Anni is not just another half-naked Internet model. She’s a podcaster, a musician, a writer, and a poet. At her day job, she’s a librarian/archivist. She’s writing a book about podcasting, she says.

That means this chick’s got some brains to go with her, um, other assets.

A soccer enthusiastic, hence the handle and the legs, Soccergirl was recently added to podgod Adam Curry’s network Podshow.com. That doesn’t mean Anni is at the quitting her day job stage, but she is closer to that. GoDaddy.com, known for recognizing, um, assets, is a big fan, and Anni can often be seen sporting a GoDaddy tank top on her vidcast.

On her show, Soccergirl Incorporated incorporates humor, satire, reality Internet TV, music, and social commentary. Musings about the impact of instant messaging on the English language, explorations of the nature of altruism, and satirical commentaries on the egotism of Mother Theresa are broken up with random acts of dancing in the living room or riding in the car.

It’s all very existential.

So what’s with the gratuitous nudity? It’s not like that’s all she has to offer.

Anni (pronounced ah-nee) says it’s an affront, so to speak, to societal norms. Though she’s received lots of criticism about R-rated content, Soccergirl says she can’t make sense of the idea that men are permitted to show their nipples, but women are not.

“It’s sexist,” she says.

Even stranger to her is the common acceptance that nearly an entire breast is permitted on television, but nipples remain taboo.

I know a lot of guys that would have her backnever mindon that one.
