Hi Elle. What a crazy world we live in.
I live in one of those municipalities that let women go topless if they like, so long as they aren’t causing a public disturbance. Let that sink in for a moment.
I think the underlying cause of this nonsensical nipple fear goes way way way back to when our collective mindset switched from the worship of the power to give life to the fear and worship of the power to bring death. The domination mindset replaced the partnership mindset, and the new leaders had to squash the old ones down to hold on to the power they had wrested from the old order.
In the new world, female nipples were just one more thing that could be made shameful. Wtf, right?
In the meantime, I’m with the feminists. I’m not all that tied to wearing a bra. And I’m ok if people stare. Just maybe, maybe they might think a little bit. I know it’s unlikely, but I simply don’t care anymore.
Thanks for a thoughtful piece. And that ridiculous photoshopped Insta picture to. Good grief!!!
