Hi, Long time not update my blog since I’m busy on my real life activity. So this is for you, this is the support comment on equality (mostly Free The Nipple) that I get from people who post it on internet (even some of them have worth argument in it). I just give their nickname (since maybe they want privacy), and this is real from other people who support equality. I write like this: first [topic] then [nickname of that people] then [arguments that support equality or counter against double standard excused]. Hope this give you spirit to keep fighting for equality-you’re not alone, and this can be used for your argument too.
FREE THE NIPPLE
“In france, there are beaches where girls are completely topless, and little kids can run around naked and nothing ever happens to them. It’s completely a normal thing”
*(Me) The picture not necessarily from France but give you insight some Europe already have topless equality
On topless girl
“These children are NOT NUDE. They are topless. They are flat chested. There is no difference between these girls and boys their age. There is NOTHING to be ashamed of.”
“why??? Just because it’s on a girl? Noone would say shit if these were boys”
On topless ballet little girl train at Europe
“They don’t have to do ballet either. There are some people who would say that they shouldn’t dance in public at all, because men are watching and some men have dirty thoughts! ….There are some who think every girl should wear burkas whenever they are out in public because you can’t control the private thoughts of some perverted men!”
“People who think this video is controversial are the ones who look at the kids sexually. It’s completely normal for ten year old girls to be topless in Europe.”
*people who against us maybe never see some place of Europe-that free the nipple is possible 😉
On lust eye & sweet / diamond argument
“I doubt if you really get the point or not. You certainly shouldn’t compare women to any sort of objects, no matter that is a banana or a diamond.”
“And if women could be able to live in a healthy enough society, why they need to be afraid of freak’s lustful eyes.”
“then I guess maybe people just live in the parallel worlds. Some people live in a place that they don’t need to worry about other people’s lustful vision and some people live in a place that they need to cover up themselves to avoid insults. If you are talking about a cure, I suggest a proper education is the answer rather than covering up with clothes.”
On rape argument
“In some countries people walk around naked in certain regions. Apart from immigrants, they dont see it as an invitation to sex, but has accustomed to such conditions. Nobody, even immigrants, would just walk up to a woman and gangbang her in public in front of other people. And Rape also happens to the girls who wear clothes, not only the nude ones. It all depends on culture and ones moral codes.”
Free the dick??
“A penis is a sexual organ and in a completely different category. The only things that differentiates female nipples from males are that they are larger and lactate, along with them being sexualized in western society. In many places, it is normal for women to walk around topless alongside topless men. We in America don’t seem to understand that the stigma came from them being covered by bras, which are really only to help women carry their breast.”
“Yeah, well let a man merely enter a women’s restroom where such women do their business behind LOCKED doors and he’s instantly labeled a pervert. Yet a woman can walk into the men’s room where there are not even doors, let alone locked, and everything’s hunky dory….”
*So make female version of urinal too for equality or both sexes behind door pee
Somebody support me-a little bit Lol (although I’m doubt is she supporters of Ftn or not. This is funny to read-she still critique some dude who don’t understand my argument during ftn debate)
“This is many months later… but I guess the point the other guy, well by the way is name is 69 (interesting name for someone who wants women to be shameless about being topless, hmm) is not about the practicality of being topless but about the double standard of people making a taboo out of female nudity vs. male nudity. Frankly, I do agree that people should not make female nipples some kind of a morally should-not-be-seen part of the body, seriously everyone has them. no biggy. But that is not to say that as a woman, I would be happy to show them around everywhere for practical reasons you pointed out. Even if people treated male and female anatomy of chest/ breast the same, like toes or something, your argument is like saying, “would you wear a goddam sandals in winter? Toes freeze. oh no!” but what the 69 guy -___- is saying is that male toes and female toes should have the equal freedom to wear sandals whenever they desire. NOT about we should definitely wear sandals all season even if it’s freezing (which is essentially like the point you are making about sagginess). I hope you get the logical gap that you are creating. People are so illogical it makes me sad.”
*Do you enjoy it please let me know maybe I can make part 2 (by the way I have many imagination for this blog and equality but unfortunately I am busy on my real life too which make me couldn’t routinely update this blog)
Despite the controversy they made, Femen still have give contribution for topless equality (thing that I as egalitarian support), seeing them topless protest at street in non porn context routinely make us more accustomed with breast (desexualize it), or not always view breast in sexual manner. It’s women rights if she feel confidence to topless in natural situation, and actually some modern society apply topless equality & done well. If it can success in some place like some Europe place, we can get used to it too, and nothing wrong if men see women topless in public just like when women see men topless (I mean men can accustomed at public, still attracted but not “obsessed sexually” instead admiring, and nothing wrong about that but that also doesn’t mean you become impotent during sex with your partner, it’s more about knowing the right context).
Some historical photos where women can free the nipple-unfortunately it change now.
Some people have an excuse “It because our society become more modern, free the nipple is backwards like when cave era that’s why now this tradition change”, this perception is fallacy I think it more because there’s a moment when our past generation (even we) see (women only) modesty is a “right” thing which make them (& us) become prudish society (which then this mentality radicalize by sex negative feminist & religion), by this it make us more difficult to see free the nipple is about equality & possible. This result many kind of excused against free the nipple one of them is like the one I just mentioned.
In Middle East women covered from head to toe that doesn’t mean modern right while at Europe women can free the nipple (Fact) and their society are modern at the same time.
Why topless male isn’t claim as backwards then? (if you labelled topless female “backwards”?), it’s more about double standard that we apply here.
Nothing wrong for men to see topless women if women can see men topless all the time, and nothing wrong for women to free the nipple in non sexual context if she confidence since men did it all the time (it’s possible the photos below itself show us it possible even in the old one photos, don’t think it’s already past instead of seeing all people in that society & generation doesn’t make a big deal, and can get used with it-freethenipple.
Some Women are okay actually for Free The Nipple-in non sexual context, and by their courage for free the nipple & not listening what majority said, we can change society to be more equal & not childish when it come to female bodies.
No matter what people in majority said, I truly support Free The Nipple for equality (for topless equality to be specific). Women can choose topless at public if she wishes (and have courage) without get negative prejudice, and men can free their negative concept on women breast and see it in more natural positive way (not only view it in sexual way since at this time you can only see breast in porn) but can see it in normal way just like women see men’s chest (You still attracted to breast while women not attracted to men’s chest? No women not so scandalize when see men chest since men topless all the time but women still show attraction to shirtless men & if Ftn normalize you can still view breast beautiful but it become admiring women not ‘sex obsessed crazily’ anymore-like when the time you never see it publicly). So Free The Nipple is for women and men.
So here the photos show there really exist people from our movement who are purely for equality, and the one who agree feel free to share my article:
Asian with bra men- turntable time
Different skin Free The Nipple either black or white
Different age, different shape
Men and women censored nipple equally
Men and women Free The Nipple equally
It Possible if normalize, and we can get used to it !
People who against us will said something like “you can go to nursing room”, even if for example people who are strongly against us- no matter how much they create the nursing room because they are afraid to see breast, there still exist a time, a place where mom need to breastfeed at public, and it’s not your rights to forced mom to hide herself when breastfeeding even if there’s a nursing room at that place.
I’m late about this Go Topless 2016, this video is for celebrating it.
Although I personally think this double standard law is made not only by men but women too-the prudish & sex negative one
I don’t know you guys, but some people love to think fully naked men with semi naked women as “equal”, which for me is stupid, they think semi naked women is naked-fallacy, fully naked women is the true equivalent of fully naked men, this video of naked equality art festival will raise you awareness of nude equality, enjoy 😉
Thank You Chelsea Covington for your effort to raise awareness of true equality #FreeTheNipple
Maryamnamazie mentioned FREETHENIPPLE A.K.A TOPLESS EQUALITY during speech 😀
We need more people like Maryamnamazie who have courage to stand up, talk, and counter the idea of shaming female body only, double standards & oppression towards women. The most important is equality for both gender.
If we silence, it will become more comfortable for people who dislike equality, to spread and maintenance their sexist idea. If it become normal, people in society will insensitive towards inequality and just follow it since it already become part of their culture where majority of people apply it, understand? if sexism is seen as normal it will take more effort and energy to fight than before.
Long Live Equality
