Venting to the World

Nipples are evil

A funny thng happened another day: I went to my gym on an extremely muggy and hot DC summer evening wearing a sports bra. The bra is thick and has support, however, you can see a faint outline of nipples through the fabric. I am not talking transparent mind you. Oh horror, men’s eyes were on my nipples.  I was breaking another American code/rule/custom/habit which is “Thou shall never show nipples”!

Growing up in the tropical country of Brazil and also during the 70’s, not wearing a bra was always an option, especially when you are young and your breasts are small and firm.  Nipples can still be seen everywhere in Brazil, even with the push up bra fashion (unfortunately, Brazilians have also been seduced by the big boobs mania).

I don’t see anything wrong with showing nipples; men also show theirs when they wear t-shirts. I am not advocating see-through clothing, but what’s wrong with showing some nipples especially if you are at a gym for chrissakes?

That is one more aspect of the false morality of this country.  It is ok for a man in a committed relationship to go to a topless bar but it is not ok for a normal woman to show an outline of her nipples on a summer day. Please. Let’s free the American nipples!

  2. I agree with you – they’re just nipples, for crying out loud, what’s the big deal? (I also love the idea that it’s somehow ‘OK’ to show pretty much the entire breast so long as we cover those pesky nipps…)
