ive had to deal w this argument before ok listen here
boobs do the oxytocin thing when theyre stimulated yes, nipples are an erogenous zone. Men’s nipples do this too. Now read over those two sentences and let the double standard dawn on you okay? Think about it if both kinds of nips release oxytocin when you do the touch touch on them, why is only one kind of nip considered a sexual nip? sexism that’s why
it’s ridiculous and technically makes a dude’s nipples more inappropriate than a lady’s nipples because boy nipples serve virtually no other purpose than to be stimulated by temperature change or by sexual activity, while girl nipples serve the added purpose of oh you know, feeding babies no big deal
but nah man nah both can be aroused so both nips are sexual or no nips are so make up your mind
you know where else is an erogenous zone?? ears. Are you wearing an ear bra/?? Why the fuck arent you wearing your fucking ear bra you trash put on yoourfucking ear bra youre not allowed to show your fucking ears thats so inappropriate and its makinng me horny its distracting me from my school work youre not following the dresscode wear your fucking ear bra yo ufucking
Things like this annoy me. I am feminist but SERIOUSLY. Boobs are genitalia. Accept it. And if you can’t then walk around in public topless. Completely topless. Enjoy embarrassing yourself.
Breasts are not genitalia. They are secondary sex characteristics, just like facial hair is for men. If you need a complete description of what “genitalia” really are, read this article on wikipedia (some photos are NSFW).
Our concept of topless being “shameful” and “embarassing” is purely cultural and it isn’t absolute. In other cultures women walk around topless and men simply don’t care. For them, seeing a woman’s breasts is as normal as seeing her face.
Oxytocin is released during labour which is about the least sexy time possible. We use artificial versions to induce labour/birth and it does absolutely nothing for arousal (in my experience it just makes things cramp and hurt and I only had the post-birth version).
Oxytocin is the LOVE (/connection) hormone which helps us bond with people including our children after a lot of pain (which breastfeeding is for many people which is why it’s useful there), it is not the fucking hormone (that’s more connected to testosterone). I’m not sure how that got confused. Nipples/breasts are not genitals in any species. That doesn’t even make sense, they’re to feed babies, any other benefits are secondary and certainly not universal.
"Boobs are genitalia"
I mean, I’m a feminist but I do not want to live in a world where breasts are no longer sexual. I love my boobs, they make me feel incredibly sexy as a woman and they are one of the few parts of my body I actually have confidence in. I love them so much, I love how much they turn on my boyfriend. I just don’t want to walk around topless okay?
good for you! it’s god damn amazing that you take pride in your boobs and that they turn your boyfriend on and that you enjoy that! but while it’s beneficial to you, to many other women it is nothing short of harmful and another tick on their list to feel uncomfortable over
the over-sexualisation of breasts is leading to women being shamed. It’s leading to women being told that what should be feeding infants is an inappropriate sexual organ and it must be kept hidden. It’s making women feel that if they don’t have a particular standard for their baby feeders and if their baby feeders are not round enough or perky enough or if their nipples aren’t just the right size, they are not allowed to feel proud of their tits because they don’t make guys’ dicks hard. That if they do have that standard of cute perky tits, their tits aren’t their property and they’re supposed to get whipped out on command of men for their sexual pleasure. That if they’re too well covered a woman is prudish, and if there’s too much cleavage a woman is a slut. That women and young girls shouldn’t be allowed to wear the clothing they feel confident and comfortable in because the upper half of that dress is going to distract your male coworkers and teachers and fellow students. The over sexualisation of breasts leads to women being made to feel objectified and too often even leads to verbal and physical attacks on women, which many women will be blamed for based on the age old question, “well what were you wearing?”
it’s well and truly wonderful that you love your titties, friend. But the liberation of tits isn’t going to be harmful towards you and your partner’s sex life or your self confidence. The only thing that the liberation of tits is supposed to do is make more women confident that their breasts are natural, beautiful, and 100% their own
I can’t believe we actually have to make this argument. Are breasts involved in sexual reproduction? No? THEN THEY AREN’T GENITALIA. GOD, PEOPLE ARE STUPID.
Also, no one is telling anyone that they HAVE TO WALK AROUND TOPLESS. roll it the fuck back, buddy.
White American males constitute only 33% of the population. Yet, they occupy approximately:
- 80% of tenured positions in higher education
- 80% of the House of Representatives
- 80-85% of the U.S. Senate
- 92%of Forbes 400 executive CEO-level positions
- 90% of athletic team owners
- 97.7% of U.S. presidents
Good thing we solved sexism and racism u guise
