Rylie—small children generally have little aversion to nudity. I assume you were born naked? And sucked on a female breast?
Mathgeekjoe says2015-04-12T11:42:18.1822853-05:00
Difference between babies and children(the age group definition not the broad offspring definition)
Mathgeekjoe says2015-04-12T11:42:47.8822489-05:00
There difference between... Typo.
minnymilerza says2015-04-12T11:43:04.7900471-05:00
Joe—what's your point?
Mathgeekjoe says2015-04-12T11:43:11.0923259-05:00
There is a difference Typo 2 fixed.

Joe—a child will not fear nudity if he/she is not taught to fear it
Dilara says2015-04-12T12:06:07.6566530-05:00
Oh wait I voted in the wrong one.
minnymilerza says2015-04-12T12:10:48.8412455-05:00
Dilara—five year old boys are highly aware of what "boobies" look like. We all are.
grand_admiral says2015-04-12T13:24:49.0462553-05:00
We have been naked for thousands of years, we only care about female breasts for the last two thousand, and visible nudity was only frowned upon in the victorian age. Why should there be any problem with nudity
Dilara says2015-04-12T13:58:19.7290358-05:00
A guy can't wander about with his wang sticking out and a women can't prance about with her boobies or vag sticking out. Little boys don't know about that yet.
minnymilerza says2015-04-12T13:59:48.4107103-05:00
Dilara—why are you only focusing on boys? Everyone will see the topless woman's "boobies."
Dilara says2015-04-12T14:07:52.7911349-05:00
Children especially boys shouldn't see that yet. They will get distracted and won't be sure what it is. Plus boobs shouldn't be left to bounce around. They're sensitive and could get bumped.
minnymilerza says2015-04-12T14:14:02.4126587-05:00
Dilara—people know what boobs are. We've all come into contact with them. And fine, YOU might want to cover up to prevent injury. That shouldn't prevent other females from remaining bare chested.
BblackkBbirdd says2015-04-12T14:30:55.5582077-05:00
Boobs aren't the same as penises or vaginas because they're not sex organs (yes, I know penises are also used for peeing). And they're just as much sex organs on males as they are on females. Besides, small children wouldn't even see breasts sexually (just as they wouldn't see a topless man sexually), because they're children.
TBR says2015-04-12T15:26:57.2244379-05:00
Childish. Terrified of boobs? Would someone please think of the children!!!
grand_admiral says2015-04-12T15:59:54.3691856-05:00
Children survive just fine in tribal societies without clothes, why are so many people say "OHHHH the CHILDREN!!!" I mean, look at Europe, half the female statues are topless. And in Japan, they don't even rate boobs as 18+. Of all the countries on Earth, the USA, Canada and the UK are the most prude. Seriously guys! Join the rest of the world.
Dilara says2015-04-12T16:36:47.4518255-05:00
America isn't Africa or Brazil-not being racist. Those are different cultures with different customs an us.
TBR says2015-04-12T18:57:47.4604787-05:00
And our custom is unnecessarily prudish in this regard.
TBR says2015-04-12T19:00:11.4975599-05:00
My son is about to turn five. He knows what breasts are, he sucked on one for more than a year! The only thing our culture is doing sexualizing it.
Episteme says2015-04-13T16:15:51.9417455-05:00
Dilara - You said it was dangerous for five year old boys to see breasts. Why do you think it's dangerous?
Dilara says2015-04-13T16:19:35.0494677-05:00
Breasts are a part of the body that only women have. That's why they're private. If men had them to then they wouldn't be private and innapropiate for boys who don't have them to see. Your ass is a nother thing when though both genders have one
Episteme says2015-04-13T16:25:27.0939097-05:00
Why do breasts have to be private? Also, why is the privacy of breasts dangerous for five year old boys?
BblackkBbirdd says2015-04-13T16:25:58.1371137-05:00
Men actually technically have breasts too, they're just less soft and fatty and awesome because they have less oestrogen to make them grow big and strong
BblackkBbirdd says2015-04-13T16:33:13.2567565-05:00
Anyway, if we ignore the fact that men have boobs too, based on the idea that because only women have beasts, they are private, males should also not be able able to walk around without a top legally they are usually flat chested where as women aren't.
BblackkBbirdd says2015-04-13T16:38:18.8462955-05:00
Did I phrase that in a really confusing way? I think I did, what I meant was: if boobs being unique to females (which they kind of aren't) makes them private, so female toplessness should be illegal Male toplessness should also be illegal based on this same principal as flat chestedness is unique to males.
Dilara says2015-04-13T16:41:36.1645563-05:00
We all have chests. Women are the only ones with big soft breasts. Little boys shouldn't un one they are if their parents don't want them to.
Episteme says2015-04-13T16:44:20.4683703-05:00
Just to back up BblackkBbirdd - http://www.livescience.com/4971-men-breasts.html Men have breasts because the fetus starts out female. Anyway, Dilara, why is it dangerous for boys to see breasts? Also, why do breasts have to be private?
TBR says2015-04-13T16:44:30.6693865-05:00
Look. This is not one that gets me worked-up. Let me just say from a man that has been through puberty as a boy, the extra titillation is meaningless in the grand scheme.
BblackkBbirdd says2015-04-13T16:44:36.3788401-05:00
Why do you keep talking about little boys?
BblackkBbirdd says2015-04-13T16:48:58.5419069-05:00
What about little girls, how would seeing breasts hurt them? Huh TELL ME, TELL MEEEEEE!
Dilara says2015-04-13T16:50:44.5449997-05:00
Some people don't want their kids seeing breasts so those kids shouldn't have to see them.
minnymilerza says2015-04-13T16:52:06.5145280-05:00
Dilara—everybody sees breasts. Everybody has breasts. Males, females. Some males have bigger breasts than females. Some females are completely flat chested
Episteme says2015-04-13T16:52:16.5670401-05:00
Why do those parents not want their children seeing breasts? What is so wrong about breasts that makes it so these parents think it's immoral to look at them?
Dilara says2015-04-13T16:55:29.9396817-05:00
Women breasts are different than man breasts. And I don't know why people don't want their boys seeing breasts l. Probably because it is a part of the body that men are especially attracted to making it a sexual part in a way. Not saying little kids will be attracted to them and I'm not saying you should cover up every body part People are attracted to. That's how some people feel
TBR says2015-04-13T16:56:41.8538377-05:00
Know what I don't like my son seeing. Hair. All woman MUST cover their heads so MY son doesn't see hair.
minnymilerza says2015-04-13T16:56:59.6664530-05:00
Dilara—they're five year old boys. They don't have sexual desires. And for the last time, THEY JUST STOPPED BREASTFEEDING. THEY HAVE SEEN BREASTS THOUSANDS OF TIMES
Dilara says2015-04-13T16:58:04.3445225-05:00
Hair and boobs aren't the same. And it's not an inconvinence to cover boobs as it's safer. Covering hair is an inconvinecence.
minnymilerza says2015-04-13T17:01:13.3492761-05:00
Dilara—do you know how uncomfortable bras are?
TBR says2015-04-13T17:03:58.4269959-05:00
@Dilara - You have failed to convince me of either point. The entirety of the female body is "sexual" when you are a pubescent boy. Artificially adding to this "mystery" of what is and is not covered MAKES them (breasts) overly sexualized. Point is, if you are on a beach wearing a bikini, boys WILL be looking regardless.
Episteme says2015-04-13T17:11:12.0463245-05:00
I think the issue here is that certain types of nudity is considered sexual in nature. Not all nudity should be considered sexual and breasts probably shouldn't be considered sexual either. Breasts aren't sexual because their function isn't for sex. The vagina is for a distinct sexual purpose. Society has made breasts a sexual object. Biology didn't. What we do need to do as a society is to stop sexualising women's bodies (and sometimes men's as well.) Nudity in general shouldn't be considered an open invitation for anything and it shouldn't be looked on as being immoral or mysterious. Being nude in and of itself is not immoral. I also don't think women's bodies should be a mystery to boys. If boys are accustomed to seeing a nude female body then they are probably less likely to sexualise and objectify it as being mysterious and something they want to use or play with. (So long as they see the female body as something that should be respected - not something that's a means to sexual advancement.)
Dilara says2015-04-13T21:28:58.3220881-05:00
I'm size d34 I know how uncomfortable bras are. What's more uncomfortable is not having a bra when your out and about going up stairs, running ect and they bounce all around.
Dilara says2015-04-13T21:30:48.7211650-05:00
Also boobs (the nipple area) are very sensitive. That's partly why people don't wander about with their boobs out. They could get bumped. Same reason why people don't show their genitals . Not only are they private but they're sensitive.
Episteme says2015-04-14T17:58:35.9134815-05:00
Some men have very sensitive nipples. Should they not be allowed to show their chest out on the beach? Do you think nude beaches shouldn't exist? Do you think that it should be a criminal offense for a woman to have her breasts out in public?
Dilara says2015-04-14T19:14:32.6014512-05:00
Men don't have big chests like women. Nude beaches are fine because you to there to be nude and expecting to see nude people. I don't expect to see a nude womb at target. Women's Breasts are private like genitals and butts are.
Episteme says2015-04-14T19:51:43.8584903-05:00
But some men do have big chests like women do. Hence the term 'man-boobs.' Also, do you think it should be a criminal offense if a woman's breasts are out in public? Currently - at least in the UK, I believe it's considered indecent exposure with a potential penalty of two years in prison. In the US, a woman could face fines or imprisonment. Do you think that's right?
Dilara says2015-04-14T21:23:37.3671097-05:00
I think she should be fined but put in jail is way too far.
Dilara says2015-04-14T21:24:53.2856568-05:00
And fat people shouldn't show off their bodies. No bikinis, shorts or tank tops. They should be allowed but they shouldn't. Only skinny healthy people should.
minnymilerza says2015-04-14T21:25:52.8663928-05:00
Dilara—you should feel the same way about topless females. Allowed to, but shouldn't. How about that?
Episteme says2015-04-15T04:25:32.4071160-05:00
Wait, wait, did you really just say that 'fat people shouldn't show off their bodies'? Why shouldn't they show off their bodies? Is it that offensive that they shouldn't? What determines that someone is fat? (Society!) Some people have faster metabolisms and others have slower. It's not their fault, is it? I just feel like your statement, Dilara, was somewhat discriminatory against those who may be just a bit curvier.
Episteme says2015-04-15T04:26:55.0499145-05:00
I get that you think they it's allowed, but like minnymilerza says, shouldn't women be allowed to go topless? (Allowed being the key word, here?) Why should they be fined for it???? Should curvier people be fined as well for showing off their bodies????
Dilara says2015-04-15T20:17:05.3424701-05:00
Fat people should be allowed to show off their bodies but they shouldn't l. I said fat not curvy. There is a difference between a big belly, double chin and rolls of fact and a thin waist, big thighs, a big butt and big breasts. Like I said my bra size is d34 and I'm 120 pounds and 5 foot 5. I'm plenty " curvy". My definition of curvy is a thin waist, large things and boobs. Yours might be a large belly and double chin. Men are attracted to thin curvy women because it shows health and a healthy women means health children. If people feel bad about being fat they shouldn't call it curvy. It's not at all. It's a way to make fat people feel good about their unhealthy bodies. Thin is healthier.
Episteme says2015-04-16T06:15:44.9086043-05:00
Why should women who have their breasts out be fined for doing so? The question is - should female toplessness be legal - not should women have their breasts out at all. Also, why shouldn't "fat" people show off their bodies? What's so wrong about it? If using the term curvy makes those who are overweight feel better - then why not use the term curvy? Why can't we make others feel better? If calling them fat makes them feel bad, why call them fat? It just seems like a way to hurt their feelings - and just isn't very nice. (Besides, who determines whether another is fat or not? I might be fat to someone, you might be considered fat to someone, who knows? It's just an arbitrary word. Even though it's arbitrary, some people take offense to it, so we shouldn't call them fat if they don't want to be called it! (By the way, I'm not calling you fat, I'm trying to make a point that the term is subjective dependent on the viewer.)) Thinner is not always healthier. Larger isn't healthier, either. Healthier is healthier. Whether that means someone looks "fat" or not - so long as they're healthy that's okay. Some healthy people look thin. Some healthy people look "fat." Some healthy people look average. (Note that "fat" is in quotes - because I don't really want to use the term, but it was the term you used.) Not all men are attracted to thin, curvy women! Men are attracted to a variety of body types. Why are you generalizing these things?
uglie-boy says2015-04-30T20:55:03.7052790-05:00
If kids are so negatively impacted by breasts men shouldn't have theirs hanging out either
Dilara says2015-04-30T21:38:00.1020566-05:00
Being fat is not a matter of opinion. If your body weight is above a certain amount (depending on your height, muscle ect) you are over weight. People shouldn't feel ok with bodies like that. Those try led of bodies lead to serious health problems. Just like people shouldn't be ok with anorexic bodies. And I'm not going to let the term curvy be ruined by applying it to obese non curvy in attractive bodies. Curvy is curvy. Fat is fat. Skinny is skinny. They are all very different. Curves means a thin waist, large hips and a large but not disgusting rolls of fat. Skinny people can be curvy.
uglie-boy says2015-04-30T23:09:54.1621554-05:00
Both women and men have breasts and nipples. There is no difference.
uglie-boy says2015-04-30T23:10:48.9710098-05:00
I'm not just referring to fat men, all men have breast tissue
