Is #freethenipple ridiculous and over-the-top?
Debate Rounds (3)
Might I also add, however possible it is for men to walk around freely with nothing covering their breasts-- it is absolutely impossible (as it is painful) for women to walk around without any support for their breasts. Women with big breasts or even medium-sized ones, find it difficult to jog or even walk without a bra.
Although I do agree that in many areas of life, yes, men and women should in fact be treated equally--the #freethenipple movement is an example of gender equality pushing it a bit too far. Women's breasts are to be respected, well-cared for, and treated with more significance than a man's. Women's breasts should not be used as a push for that extra bit of equality. There are women and children being abused and there are men looked down upon if they stay at home instead of work. There are much bigger inequalities in our society to focus on. Thank you.
I agree that women's breasts should not be sexualized, and agree that society nowadays as we know it is so centered around the size of women's breasts. For example, people are allowed to vote on who looks best in a swimsuit in beauty pageants. My point is that society needs to show young children nowadays, as Chloe Moretz says, "That there is more to life than our breasts". There are bigger life crisis' in this world that needs to be taken care of. Besides, shaming women's clothing is not so much of a popular opinion now. All the girl needs to do is just post a picture about a letter from the headmaster regarding her clothing, and an entire group of activists will start sending death threats to the principle. Media sites will post articles about it. Popular companies will offer that girl a scholarship to a school with a non-discriminative enviroment. See? The world, well, much of it--already respects women and their clothing choices. Even if one or two people disrespect a lady for being a lady, there will be a whole parade willing to stand up for her rights. The #freethenipple movement is unnecessary because there are already multitudes of people who believe that women's breasts shouldn't be sexualised, and these multitudes were already here for a long time now.We are not living in the times where women are heavily discriminated for their clothing--with no one to support them. Yes, although discrimination of women's clothing are still present, there are already many people against it. The #freethenipple movement was unnecessary to start because the whole world is already slowly beginning to accept women's rights and gender equality. There are much more important matters to be campaigning for and yes, although we shouldn't dismiss the small ones, we, the youth of this world, should prioritize the bigger problems first. The voice of the young are the most heard, and we should learn to put first the big problems affecting our society.
