Real Reasons Why…We Don’t Lose the Weight #2

Reason #2

We want to start big.

For some of us the concept of eating right and exercising is brand new, while others may have come across this bridge before. Either way, I have found that a lot of people who try to lose weight (including myself) set large unrealistic goals/plans. For instance, Continue reading


A Conversation About the Nipple Movement

Here is the video on Facebook that inspired this post and its corresponding article.

You know who would take offense to this the most? Other women. We have modesty ingrained in us whether from family or society.Cross your legs, wear pantyhose , don’t curse, excuse yourself, be seen not heard, be a nice girl, etc. Baring skin seems to go against all that we are taught. Sexy=Skin. The more skin, the more sex appeal, the more sex appeal the more “slutty” you are. Then we go into more complex things that upset me like “well look what she was wearing” if a perpetrator (usually male) attacks, whether rape or misconduct.
If we didn’t gauge women on a sexy-meter upon first look maybe it wouldn’t offend people when a woman has to breastfeed in public because her child is hungry and doesn’t have a mammoth blanket to shield her bosom.
Should it be dangerous to allow “immodest” women (nipple bearing and proud) to take part in our feeds?

Society has only sexualized the chest of one gender. This is why its understandable Social Media says female breasts “violates community” standards, they are only reflecting what society accepts to see outside closed doors. However, should Social Media be parenting what we share in this gender specific way?
Photo nudity does not offend me, nipples do not offend me. I think the issue Social Media has is the capture/ time capsule of “nakedness” that can easily be transported by all relevant means, therefore falling into a situation outside of confinements of its origin. Submission into the inter-web gives consent to anyone who can get a connection (including the underaged and employers).Simply not everyone has that foresight.
I find it inappropriate to be met with half naked men in public (pair shirtless with exposed boxer briefs and ass crack). While i am socially bound by bras and shirts that don’t show more than three-fourths inch of cleavage in order to satisfy a society that has done nothing but tell me how my “nakedness” (physical, verbal, emotional etc.) offends them, and shames me. All while men can speak their minds, bare their bodies, and call themselves bosses without being called “bitchy”.Women are looked at as meat, that’s the truth. However, men definitely have their own societal stigmas.

I am very curious as to how IG, Facebook and other social media sites go about setting limitations on the transgender community.
If you want to bare your breasts male or female I think you should be allowed to in certain places and instances. In my opinion, both male and female breasts can be sexualized, heck anything can be now a days. I say we all wear shirts for the most part, I am anti-bra though. Breasts were meant to swing, hit you in the face and lay wherever they fall. Free your breasts when you can, where you can, if you want to I say.

Where do you stand on the Nipple Movement?
