Boobs are bad, ladies and gentlemen.
It seems thatÂ they are allowed exposure in polite societyÂ when they areÂ presented for gentlemanly pleasure or clasped in tight T-shirts a la Hooters. But exhibit them in their natural position â€“ clutched in the tiny mouth of a nursing infant â€“ and that’s just not good.

Offensive content? Â
What are they? Crazy?Â Â
Seeing as it is 1952,Â I guess not.Â
Ah, it’s all so tiring. AÂ discussion about how-can-we-even-consider-linking-the-word-offensive-with-breastfeeding-in-the-era-of-Girls-Gone-Wild-and-the-“I-am-a-slut-ha-ha-ha”-antics-of-Paris-Hilton? seems like such a no-brainer, a sorry excuse for an intelligentÂ rant.
And I can’t believe it’s not.
It’sÂ shocking to me that in this day and age it still all needs to be said, over and over and over again.
Here we are, at the apparent drop-off point of feminism, whenÂ ten-year-old girls are givingÂ boysÂ blow jobs for a dollar a pop and young female college students pick email user names likeÂ eyecandy95 and hot_lips69.
MoreÂ so than ever beforeÂ the world around us is smeared withÂ the idea of woman-as-object and the people that ruleÂ the modern arenas of social exchangeÂ letÂ it all be. They allow the teenagers and 20-something-year-oldÂ young women toÂ sell their stuff – oh, wait,Â most of them are just giving it away – all over the Internet.
This, to them, is not offensive.
That’s the enemyÂ that has inspired them toÂ censor.
What is it? TheÂ wholesome use ofÂ the boob, the empowering position, the woman as ruler of her very own roost?
Whatever the unfathomable reason, lots of women have risen their voices in a grand 1970’s styled roar over this ridiculous ruling.Â An online petition Â is filling up fast.Â
Please sign it.Â Please tell your friends.Â
If things don’t change soon, I’m afraid it will get much, muchÂ worse for women than 1952 ever was. If we’re not already there.Â Â Â Â Â
