The Absurdity of Sexist Modesty: Genderless Nipples

genderlessThe #FreeTheNipple movement is generally associated with women increasingly gaining access to the same freedoms men have. The conversation centers around the fact men can often go topless outdoors while women are more restricted. These legal disparities point out the sexist foundations of our social beliefs: that women are inherently “other” and their bodies innately more sexual, because the rules were written predominately by straight men.

It’s worth noting men also had to fight for their right to bear nipples. This proves that we can move the boundaries of propriety and survive to tell the tale; we can see un-obscured human nipples and continue to function as a society. Here to further prove that point is Genderless Nipples, the Instagram account that is pretty much exactly what it sounds like. We chat about the philosophic underpinnings of the nipple debate, the future of this activism, doing battle against a social media giant and more!
