I'm pleased with the topless laws (or lack of them to be precise) where I am.
Does that mean I am a pervert, or exhibitionist?
The arguments back there about european conquests bringing rape upon native women of other lands who were less covered is only good as an example of
how such taboos bring about extreme and negative consequences.
Whenever we have american friends and family over on vacation, going to the beach is a big hassle, because they overeact to the breasts everywhere.
The men can't control their erections, the women get all morally offended.
In this subject, the strongest objectors are females who eventually come out with the explanation that they don't want men to become desensitized to
the view of a breast in contexts other than sexual, out of fear that they will lose some of their power to manipulate men with it.
What really irritates me the most now is that there feels to be a deeper objection the vision of a woman breast feeding
which pertains to the symbology of it.
I found breast feeding an amazing experience, because I grew up surrounded by a culture in which women are considered valuable only for what they have
on the exterior to offer - their looks, their body shape, their behavior as agreable and obedient to men. Suddenly, it was evident that what I am
inside also has value! That what I have to offer others, which comes from my unseen depths has beneficial and nourishing qualities for others.
Birth and breast feeding were my first experiences in becoming a "projector" and not just a "receiver".
This went deeper for me than just lactating; it got me really more assertive in life, and not only with my children. I began to consider that me
feelings, my thoughts, my opinions matter, have value, and should be expressed outward.
The comment about Olivia just trying to attract a male with this picture shows that not enough women are expressing what they feel inside, because so
many men are really ignorant about us.
