Free-Boobing

26 Apr

As I was driving the other day, I saw a man walking down the street without a shirt. Not that unusual of a sight, right?

It made me think about the desire of some women to want to be able to walk around without a shirt and bra, just like men can. It’s just not fair that we have to cover our nipples, while men just get to let the sun and wind wash over theirs.

But who are these women who want to run around bare-breasted?

I would never feel comfortable enough to walk around without a shirt or bra on, and I don’t know if I’ve met a woman who would. So who are all of these women who we are “fighting” for, if no women want to walk around bare-breasted? I guess it really isn’t that simple, because while our current generation may not want to walk around like this, if we developed an acceptance for it, our daughters and grand-daughters might just be comfortable enough to do it regularly.

If we are trying to solve this problem (and believe me when I say that I’m not ready to fight for this one), we have to get to the root of why its a problem in the first place. The only reason I’ve gathered that women aren’t able to go topless is because boobs are considered organs related to sexual gratification. Here’s my problem with that argument:

Aside from the poor quality of this picture, and the fact that it was taken via a mirror…mmmm. A nice, normal looking fellow that just might be walking down the street without a shirt on on a hot day.  And you are going to sit here and tell me that this is any less sexual than a woman with boobs? No way. When I see some attractive fellows hanging out without a shirt on, my mind instantly moves to how much I want to put my hands all over that.

Maybe men should have to wear shirts all the time, too. Then women won’t have anything to complain about. Because I really, really don’t want to see women walking around without a top on. I can barely deal with women who aren’t wearing a bra, let alone neither a shirt nor a bra. Uncomfortable.

Or, if that just isn’t enough hair for you, here’s some more, along with some bulge action:

And just in case that’s a little too much hair for your liking, or not ripped enough, here you go:

You’re welcome.

What do you think about the women-need-to-go-topless-like-men problem? Would you ever do this walking down the street? Do you know any woman who would? Is the basis for the argument really just to be equal to men, and if so, why shouldn’t we just say men have to be equal to us? Do you care either way?

 

 

Sexism and Equal Rights for Men

21 Aug

 

When people fantasize about equal rights, the conversation is usually surrounded by talk of feminism and all the things women don’t get but should. I don’t disagree that women should be paid the same amount as men. The right to vote and to work and wear pants are all great things, also, but I’d like to talk about something else. I’d like to talk about masculism.

I’m new to the words that surround this topic, but from my limited understand I’ve gathered that masculism is the belief that equality of the sexes requires work to be done to stop prejudice and discrimination toward both sexes. The view that men should be held higher than women, or anti-feminist views, are termed as masculinism.

I think this concept is something that needs to be addressed, not in the sense of any anti-feminist beliefs, but that the only way equal rights for the sexes can be achieved is by the collaborative effort between masculism and feminism. Women aren’t the only one who historically have stereotypical rolls. Men are held as the breadwinners and the dominant sex and more often than not I hear stay-at-home men being called free-loaders.

How can women be so easily allowed to stay at home with or without children, while men must work?

Men also don’t have the luxury of being able to wear women’s clothing without being questioned. Men must have masculine interests. They shouldn’t show their feelings. They should pay for the date. They should buy you drinks. I don’t understand why this is all static, but women have a whole movement for them to have more sex, be able to have whatever jobs they want, but can still stay at home while their husbands work.

If there is one thing I’d like you to think about after you read this, its that if you can’t support the thought that men need equal rights, then the sexes aren’t equal in nature. Men are naturally prone to fall into certain roles, as are women. Our brains and bodies are not the same.

How do you feel about “masculism”?
