Nipples...

Post  Guest on Sun Mar 24, 2013 5:34 pm

Why does society find the sight of men's nipples in public acceptable but a woman's must be covered up? Is this not sexist?

Interesting point. Surely its because womens breasts (and therefore nipples) have become objects of sexuality and lust. This means that they are now associated with "dirty mags" and pornography generally. They are no longer simply the same as a pretty face or Titian curls. Men have smirked or leered at the naked female form for centuries, but the internet has worsened the whole porno thing beyond belief. Male nipples do have the same connotations, and so do not offend in the same way. Of course they are male nipples/breasts which should remain covered too!!

Southernbelle is quite right it is the open access to the internet that has worsened the situation.

I have had a look at Cassie's photo and it is a lovely photo done very professionally but unfortunately others don't look at the actual photo only the content they want to find offensive , same as reading a joke meant in jest but read into more in depth ?

Yet the naked female form in painting and sculpture is considered 'high art'. Look at the queues at the British Museum to see ancient Greek and Roman statuary.

Storm in a C-cup.

Anyway, I get the impression on this forum that the decision was taken on whether this was an appropriate place to host the image.

Look at the old RO forum. You weren't allowed to write Xmas or Arsenal.

One man's porn is another man's mild TITilation. Showing half a semi-erect nipple in a photo to me is inoffensive but others disagree.

What really offends me is bad spelling, grammar, punctuation and people who can't express themselves without the use of bloody smileys.

Hinch is banned for the rest of the evening for provoking Admin and for excessive and unnecessary use of smilies.

Have they not always been in this country?

I prefer the more relaxed/enlightened continental approach.

“Bollockspeak! ” ( i.e. figuratively removing sexism

Next thing we'll have to leverage our synergies to facilitate a EU paradigm shift, or could discuss photographs of navel fluff depicted as art

I am though puzzled as to how anyone could be offended by the photo but I live and learn :-)

The Forum has just a few rules and an early-day Motion seemed to be we should respect them, and without looking to publicize a ‘back door’ route to counteract someone's moderation. Shocked Sub-zero temperatures are expected again tonight.

Nipple compromise

Post  Admin on Mon Mar 25, 2013 8:34 am

Nipple-images will be allowed in future but only if covered with a thick Aran sweater or a burka.

Can I respectfully ask Admin why he\she is allowing MJH's crass American spelling? `Publicized indeed.

And I got banned for using smileys. Me, a Spaceship Commander no less!

In the interest of equality and fair-mindedness is the offending nipple available in Braille? I promise to warm my hands first.

Absolutely nothing... from what I remember the last time we chewed a chop together on that bitterly cold evening when you wore that halter-neck... NOT that I took much notice.
