Thinking for Yourself


By Whitney R. McCleskey, 2001 May 9.

Out of my own curiosity, I've been investigating the social problems surrounding topfreedom for almost two years now. I have learned that it is difficult for most people to improve their perspectives on something which their culture has taught them to view with contempt. But it can be done.

Most of us grow up in societies which place restrictions on women's breasts, saying that the mere exposure of one is morally threatening to the welfare of the public. We adapt to this belief without question. Our media reinforce it through ads, movies, and TV programs. Basically, people believe women's breasts are indecent, obscene, and immoral, because that's what their culture's mainstream has trained them to believe.

In all of my questioning, I've found no one who has ever been able to tell me what it is about the human female breast that is so immoral, obscene, or indecent. Nor has anyone ever been able to produce anatomical facts supporting the general concept that women's breasts are primarily for sex.

I've concluded that the female breast is the most misunderstood part of the human anatomy. The sight of one (that's not being used for sexual or commercial purposes) is only detrimental if you want it to be. Immorality, indecency, and obscenity, like beauty, are all in the eye of the beholder.

Basically, you can think for yourself. You can purge yourself of the misleading impression promulgated by the state and mainstream media.

Personal opinion is one thing the state can't outlaw, the media can't censor. Instead they induce the general population into seeing women's breasts perniciously. Women's topfreedom is in itself harmless.

Our freedom to choose our standpoint is precious. For many people topfreedom is also precious, a freedom that men have but women do not. Ask yourself (not your government or the media), "Are women's breasts really nocuous to society?"
