Isn’t it funny how a woman wearing a top that shows everything EXCEPT THE NIPPLE is considered to be covered up? What’s so special about this nipple? I’ve seen many nipples in my life, across different sexes. Men can show theirs publicly, so why can’t women? If the answer is as blatant as because women have boobs, then that just isn’t going to cut it. I’ve seen plenty of men with boobs – boobs bigger than some women’s, and they can present them just as freely as they please!
I get that women’s boobs are considered sexual or whatever, but you know at the end of the day they are just different than a man’s chest for biological reasons. Women should be able to walk around like men do. Women should be able to feed their child in public without being judged or with people looking in disgust. It’s just nipples!
Going off being able to show off the whole nipple thing, how about grade schools not allowing female students to wear shorts/skirts that are “too high”? Or not being able to wear certain types of shirts? I realize there is a certain line that can’t be crossed and there is a certain level of appropriateness in school, but God forbid a a girl wears a shirt that shows just a little bit of shoulder or too much collar bone. I suppose back in the day, the people who put these rules in place got a lot more excited about shoulders and collar bones than people of our generation.
How about some schools not allowing girls to wear yoga pants? Some girls may look better in them than others, but why does that have to be the reason they are not allowed? They’re super comfortable pants! That’s why they are worn. Is it because people are worried girls become distractions by showing some extra skin or because their clothes are a little tighter? If there is an implemented dress code, that’s one thing. For there to be parameters on what can and can’t be worn though, I find ridiculous.
By laws and rules being put in place about what women can and can’t show publicly, isn’t this just sexualizing and objectifying them? Not allowing women to show certain parts of their body is stating that whatever they can’t show is unacceptable and to only be seen in private.
