This is not me.
It is a simple question. Why are nipples/breasts so taboo? I want your opinion. Guys with their shirt off it is okay, but a girl, "OMG DON'T LOOK KIDS! NIPPLES!!! YOU SHOULD BE ashamed OF YOURSELF!" Keep in mind a lot of men have bigger breasts than most women!
Also, is this picture not as taboo in your mind because the nipples have been erased? Finally, while we are on it. Why can we have nipples of african tribes on public TV but not other races? Why the divide?
I know these sounds like silly questions, but I want some rational discussion over this topic.

Hatred of sexuality, especially women’s sexuality is a xian curse
• You've seen enough TnA in NatGeo to know that many cultures have strongly accepting attitudes towards open display of secondary and primary sex characteristics. In fact, Polynesian societies from which words like tabu and kapu derive do not employ those terms to enforce “female modesty”. The missionaries created the mumu.
However, in the Big-3 monster theisms = judaism, xianity, and islam, "modesty" in dress and behavior especially directed toward women results from paternalistic social control of human behavior which stiles itself as "morality" but really is religio-political force used by men against women. Women’s rights do not exist in islamic countries. Women’s rights in the US are being attacked every day by xian thugs and their supporters in local, state, and federal government.
* the real issue -- male supremacist social control
Fundie xian males, like their fundie muslim and jewish brothers, shudder at a technological world in which mental agility has replaced physical strength as the core measure of economic utility. This reordering of values strips away a ancient core faith-based lie: god-ordained male supremacy.
Unresolved to this day is a decades long struggle over gender equality -- equal productive and reproductive rights. Whom does The House and Senate back? The relevant group, women themselves, tens of millions of them? Or white male second-hand-god salesmen? Spewing pro-birth at any price. One hundred year old social darwinism tarted up as "family values". Fundies are obvious offenders, but RCs run a close second.
Women's aspirations, self realization, reproductive self-determination must be crushed by direct force. Xian domestic terrorism, like muslim domestic terrorism, humiliates, intimidates, and batters women back to submission. Protected by complicit federal and state officials, cells of xian thugs have been targeting women and their humane values for decades.
Fundie irrationality drives scientific knowledge about sex from America's schools just as it drives medical research abroad. Xian political ideologues must eventually embrace state totalitarianism. Their "truths" can never win popular support. An open society will repudiate their nihilism composed of literalist lies, morally repugnant beliefs, and puritanical rules.
I have long been a proponent of gender equality, and I have never liked this anti-female rule which allows me as a male to mow my lawn without a shirt on, or to walk down the street topless, or to swim in the municipal swimming pool wearing just shorts, but which disallows females the same privilege or right. It is a sexist rule based on religious values, which deem body parts which are involved in procreation to be unclean, unwholesome and dirty. The mans nipples get a pass because they serve no sexual purpose, but a woman's nipples are profane so they are dirty in the eyes of the faithful. I reject this religiously motivated principle of discriminatory gender bias, but whenever I advocate that women should be granted Equality to walk down the street topless 'if' they want, or mow their lawn topless 'if' they want or to swim topless etc, 'IF' they want just like a man can choose to do 'if' he wants, then I am attacked by feminists who think it should not be allowed.
Who would have ever thought that Feminists would argue against a man who is advocating for legal Equality rights for women!
I often get battered by Feminist women for advocating equality for women in this regard, so then I point these anti-equality feminists to a group of feminists who. like me, want to see women treated with equanimity under the law:( http://www.tera.ca/ ) 'The Topfree Equal Rights Association (TERA) helps women who encounter difficulty going without tops in public places in Canada and the USA, and informs the public on this issue.'
ahhh , but you are barring the wet nurse ... which have been around since the beginning of time.
What would happen if the mother died? The baby would be fed from another woman in the tribe , perhaps a sister or aunt or someone else altogether.
Sure women can have sex with their breasts covered. Just like they can raise a child without breast feeding them!
Just curious ... would you say the primary function of a penis is to urinate or is it's primary purpose to ejaculate semen for impregnation?
