we live in a sex and porn driven world and I honestly think that it's unfair to women. I MEAN. You don't sensor cow utters, yet cows are; "four-legged boobs". As a male feminist, I think that it's really really not right to live in a world like this! I mean. Why can fat men walk around with their shirts off while women cant even wear a tank top without getting whistles or HEY BABY WANNA COME OVER??
Yes that makes no sense. I think the whole thing is about upbringing, though. There were now-well-known cultures way back when that weren't concerned with the covering up of genitalia, but then all of a sudden it was a drastic social offence to even show some leg skin! Nowadays, it's going back to how it was before, with girls wearing things that make you wonder why they even bother putting anything over their underwear at all, but I digress. I was raised on the idea that crotches, butts and boobs must be covered at all times unless at the beach (that last part never took hold for me though), so I feel that seeing the fleshy part of a boob is just as "bad" as seeing the nipple. Jeez this feels weird to type. xD But maybe other people are similar. I assume you post these things to start discussions? Anyway, more recently (a lot due to pop culture), being naked has become more "acceptable", and the importance of covering up so-called "private parts" has become gradually less important. Personally, though, I thought Miley Cyrus' only-nipple-covering outfit (I don't remember when from) was appalling in class and design because you could still see what was essentially her whole chest, even though it was technically not public indecency punishable by law. It mildly comes to my attention that my entire rant was on something different to your original question, but hopefully there is some interconnected material within. o3o; Regarding males' vs females' chests, it seems to me that anything besides the face that excretes a bodily fluid is covered up. I can't say why though. I mean underwear makes sense and all for support and such, but for the people who don't wear it, ... the reason the majority of society feel the need to believe that certain parts of the body need to always be covered up is something I don't actually understand.. o3o; Of course I am such a member of society, but I can't identify any underlying reason besides "that's how it is". Oh, but studies have shown that wearing clothing and in particular, covering up the "sensual" parts of the body, encourages people to be more selective about their partners due to the fact that excessive production of hormones that push someone towards prematurely procreating is less frequently caused. [Source: Vsauce - Why Do We Wear Clothes?] Maybe nipples were just really attractive to the people who made the rules that nipples should be covered? But just because clothing regulations may not have been created with a proper reason in mind (though I'm certain it's quite likely that there is one), doesn't necessarily mean that clothes are useless and should be abandoned entirely. For one thing, they're warm! :3 I'm pretty sure I've almost entirely missed the point of your question, but nyeh. You can question me if you want more spam! X3
When you compare male nipples to female breasts you can clearly see a difference especially since female breasts are UNIVERSALLY more sexualized then male nipples are. Which is kind of why they are censored while male nipples aren't

I personally think that it should be both or niether. I hate how people sexualize breasts and stuff when really, its not that at all. The were made to feed a baby so why is there anything wrong with that? Its like when your a baby no one cares because its how you feed your baby and then once you are not a baby everything becomes cencered, the internet, even what people say to you. Thats probably the reason people sexualize things like that, because they were sheilded from it their entire young life and then they grow up thinking its a bad or sexual thing that they shouldnt see. Its like jeez people...

uhm.. I think censoring female breasts adds to a women's feminity on the other hand, some people really overdo it ._. they don't think of gender equality of all, sadly :/ but srsly, children should not be able to acess images with nudity at all. cause that often ends up in pornography D:
I think that its because you and I may live in countries that consider breasts sexual "no-no" zones that kids dont need to see til their 18+ (or 12 if your a girl or part female), but really what are they other then large baby feeders with tips that are on the list of possible erogenous zones? Many other countries world wide feel that way. I haven't truly researched these places, but all I know is that that's how they feel and that people there dont consider breasts an attractive feature. I mean, its not like they consider them unattractive, but they just dont give a chair 'bout boobs. Heck, there are possibly places where they walk around topless and nobody cares! But the rear on the other hand, they notice the booty.
Oops, I didn't read the poll properly. I didn't see the part where it said on the internet.
Yeah, on the internet, it's whatever. But in real life I see the point. Don't get me wrong I think it would be nice if females could go shirtless just like men but y'know. That would give some people ideas. However I approve of doing whatever the fuck you want so yeah go ahead and go bra-less no problem. Maybe not shirtless though. Am I making sense or do I have no idea what I'm talking about?
So, live with an asexual. They don't care about your breasts at all. *Thumbs up*
