There are contradicting reports coming in on this one. People’s Daily reports that a Hainan man has collected 5,000 bras from local female college students to (somehow) raise awareness about breast cancer. That’s a bit eccentric, but we see where he’s coming from. China Daily, however, has uploaded the same images but states that the man, “said his dream is to build a bra museum with his collection.”
The Daily goes on to say that the man “collected the bras from female students at more than 30 universities and colleges, but did not say how he obtained them.” Chen Qingzu: offbeat activist, or panty-thief turned museum enthusiast?
