Why is it ok for men to have their nipples exposed but not women? What is the stigma behind this belief and is there an agenda at play?



Power Quadrant

First off, women’s nipples are big business because they have been overtly sexualized. Hollywood, the music industry, the porn industry, the clothing industry, the plastic surgery industry and so many others, have a vested interest in keeping the nipple hidden and mysterious… in keeping it sexualized so that they can continue to make billions in profits off of it. But, a new campaign called “free the nipple” is hoping to change that and eliminate this manipulative dogma.

Many Celebrities Have Jumped On Board With This Campaign

Celebrities such Keira Knightley, Madonna, Miley Cyrus, Cara Delevingne, and Scout
Willis are a few of the individuals supporting this cause.
 

Scout Willis, the daughter of Demi Moore and Bruce Willis, raised a lot of awareness regarding the campaign in New York City after she decided to go topless
for a day.

After posting a picture on Instagram that was taken down she issued a statement on XOjane stating the following;

“I didn’t choose my public life, but it did give me a platform to help make body politics newsworthy. Matters
like the taboo of the nipple in the 21st century, public breastfeeding,
slut shaming, fat shaming, breast cancer awareness, body positivity,
gender inequality, and censorship have found their way into mainstream
discussion.


But unfortunately the emphasis in the press has been on
sensationalizing my breasts, chiefly in terms of my family. There are
also some people who would criticize my choice to relate nipples with
equality at all. To me, nipples seem to be at the very heart of the
issue. In the 1930s, men’s nipples were just as provocative, shameful,
and taboo as women’s are now, and men were protesting in much the same
way. In 1930, four men went topless to Coney Island and were arrested.
In 1935, a flash mob of topless men descended upon Atlantic City, 42 of
whom were arrested. Men fought and they were heard, changing not only
laws, but social consciousness. And by 1936, men’s bare chests were
accepted as the norm.


So why is it that 80 years later women can’t seem to achieve the
same for their chests? Why can’t a mother proudly breastfeed her child
in public without feeling sexualized? Why is a 17-year-old girl being
asked to leave her own prom because a group of fathers find her too
provocative? Why should I feel overly exposed because I choose not to
wear a bra? Why would it be okay with Instagram and Facebook to allow
photos of a cancer survivor who has had a double mastectomy and is
without areolas but ‘photos with fully exposed breasts, particularly if
they’re unaffected by surgery, don’t follow Instagram’s Community Guidelines.’”

The truth is that it is a stupid belief. There are tribes allover the world where women walk around freely because it has never been sexualized.

Instagram, perhaps influenced by Scout’s post, recently updated their nude policy and issued this statement:

“We know that there are times when people might want to share
nude images that are artistic or creative in nature, but for a variety
of reasons, we don’t allow nudity on Instagram. This includes photos,
videos, and some digitally-created content that show sexual intercourse,
genitals, and close-ups of fully-nude buttocks. It also includes some
photos of female nipples, but photos of post-mastectomy scarring and
women actively breastfeeding are allowed. Nudity in photos of paintings
and sculptures is OK, too.”

Although this is relatively trivial when compared to other ridiculous and deadly laws such as war, which is nothing but mass murder and theft being legal, or stealing people’s money through forced unrepresented taxation by threat of imprisonment, this will help to remove the over sexualization of women which is a plus for the average person on both sides. Most women don’t want to be viewed as a piece of meat without feelings and thoughts and also would like to feel liberated, and most men (or people in general) do not like to be manipulated psychologically by the advertising industry. Still, one can’t help but wish this much energy and attention was put towards ending war, poverty, hunger and homelessness.
