i’m just going to leave this here
so are we not ignoring the fact that half of these countries or nearly all of them has been oppressing, killing, discriminating as well? i think we should put all these leaders etc in a room and make them talk and think about the shit they are doing, because none of these countries is the better one here, none……soooo yeah….wait did my country canada do anything bad to its own people…..maybe the natives were harmed alot :(
You completely missed the point of the post, I think. Like the point is, all of these countries, the USA has invaded, fought, and overall taken a Holier Than Thou attitude about civil rights, acted like an authority on basic human rights, and then it turns out that the USA is barely better. These countries are essentially calling the USA out on their hypocrisy.
And Canada has done a shitton to their own people, especially the First Nations, and that shit ain’t past tense. The First Nations are hurting a lot in Canada as we speak.
In the 1930s, men’s nipples were just as provocative, shameful and taboo as women’s are now, and men were protesting in much the same way. In 1930, four men went topless to Coney Island and were arrested. In 1935, a flash mob of topless men descended upon Atlantic City, 42 of whom were arrested. Men fought and they were heard, changing not only laws but social consciousness. And by 1936, men’s bare chests were accepted as the norm.
So why is it that 80 years later women can’t seem to achieve the same for their chests? Why can’t a mother proudly breastfeed her child in public without feeling sexualized? why is a 17-year-old girl being asked to leave her own prom because a group of fathers find her too provocative?
[…] I am not trying to argue for mandatory toplessness, or even bralessness. What I am arguing for is a woman’s right to choose how she represents her body — and to make that choice based on personal desire and not a fear of how people will react to her or how society will judge her. No woman should be made to feel ashamed of her body.
Time for some bi positivity! What’s your favorite thing about being bi? or pan or lgbt in general?
