As part of the recent wave of feminism sweeping social media, the issue of what is considered as appropriate or inappropriate nudity is still in debate, especially as platforms like instagram and facebook permit some forms of male nudity that is not permitted for women e.g. bare chested men are okay, bare chested women ate not.
And so, a campaign was born. Again. This time against boob censorship.
This one was reported again. So here it is with two MALE NIPPLES stickers that I put on to cover my illegal FEMALE NIPPLES! So now you can’t say shit, this is so fucking wrong and this is not equality. #malenipples #freethenipple #freethenipplecampaign #freethenipple2015 #female #femalenipples #my #body #natural #fucksexism #sexism #feminist #feminism #bw #covered #with #nipplestickers #tydligen #buzzfeed ! @freethenipple
According to Instagram’s community guidelines, photos, videos, and some digitally-created content that show sexual intercourse, genitals, and close-ups of fully-nude buttocks, some photos of female nipples are not allowed. But photos of post-mastectomy scarring and women actively breastfeeding are allowed.”
While Facebook in their community standards say, “We restrict some images of female breasts if they include the nipple, but we always allow photos of women actively engaged in breastfeeding or showing breasts with post-mastectomy scarring.”
