Free The Nipple // And I’m Not Sorry, It’s Human Nature

Free the nipple _ Vivienne Westwood t-shirt

What I’m Wearing…

* Vivienne Westwood Tits t-shirt with World’s End @ Opening Ceremony {sold out now}
Made for a new generation of rebel hearts, the Worlds End Capsule revives the ’70s and ’80s “Clothes for Heroes” archives from Vivienne Westwood’s storied Kings Road shop. Each limited-edition, unisex piece was carefully selected for its influential “status” concept and defiant DIY spirit, including classics reissued using prized, leftover scraps. From the bleached Drunken Anarchy shirt, to Apache-inspired knits, to chunky Tongue Trainers (originally from ’83 and a catwalk first!), it’s the covetable collection that defined punk.

* Distressed denim ‘Karmen’ pencil skirt by Citizens of Humanity {find the Karmen skirt in a dark rinse here}
* Gucci chain/charm necklace worn on my wrist // Tiffany lock chain bracelet // Gucci watch with pink face // various silver rings, new and vintage
* White low chucks all stars by Converse

* Title: lyrics from Madonna ‘Human Nature’

As I stated briefly in a recent post which was the size of a small novel, I’ve made many mistakes as a blogger. For instance, in the early days, when all those ten questions and tagging things were going around, I included a photo of a nice pair of breasts, that were NOT mine, without thinking anything about it. You see, though I’m not willing to put my own on display, I don’t have a problem with female body parts, but I was surprised by the emails and comments about the boobs being shocking, so I eventually took the photo down. It was an honest mistake, as most are, but I learned how fickle the internet was early on.

So wearing this t-shirt with a graphic of a drawing/sketch of boobs on it in an outfit post, admittedly, has me a bit worried the internet trolls will come out to play, but since this cause is so fantastic, I’ll have to live with the consequences… Please know, it is not meant to be offensive… we all deserve equal rights.

Free The Nipple is a film, an equality movement, and a mission to empower women across the world. It’s a stand against female oppression and censorship, both in the United States and around the globe. Today, in the USA it is effectively ILLEGAL for a woman to be topless, BREASTFEEDING INCLUDED, in 35 states. In less tolerant places like Louisiana, an exposed nipple can take a woman to jail for up to three years and cost $2,500 in fines for simply feeding her baby. Even in New York City, which legalized public toplessness in 1992, the NYPD continues to arrest women. Free the Nipple is working to change these inequalities through film, social media, and a grassroots campaign.

Free The Nipple has become a “real life” equality movement that’s sparked a national dialogue. Famous graffiti artists, groups of dedicated women, and influencers such as Miley Cyrus, Norman Reedus, Liv Tyler, Joe Jonas, Lena Dunham, and many many more have shown public support which garnered international press and created a viral #FreeTheNipple campaign.

The issues Free the Nipple is addressing are equal rights for men and women, a more balanced system of censorship, and legal rights for all women to breastfeed in public.

Everyone should have a choice.

    That shirt is awesome! …and oh yeah #FreeTheNipple all the way.

    I once walked the mall with a guy (okay, he was my ex-boyfriend) who was shocked that a woman was breastfeeding in public (and her nip wasn’t even exposed). Coincidentally, this happened right after Rhianna wore that see-through dress to the CFDA awards (http://hollywoodlife.com/2014/06/02/rihanna-cfda-awards-dress-2014-boobs-sheer-outfit/) – which, as you could have guessed, he had no problems with. ???

    Boobs are great and useful and fun! I’m happy to own a pair!

    HELL YEAH!!!! As a mother who breast fed (only for 2 weeks unfortunately) I TOTALLY support a mother who can breast feed. Especially in public. You ROCK Maegan!!!!

    Thank you for standing up for women! It is insane to me to me that this is even an issue…

    HALF the population of the world has boobs!? (even some men have them >:D )
    They’re not shocking, they’re beautiful – and useful!
    I find it shocking that bare breasts are considered shocking, but then as you say, the internet can be a surprising place. Enjoy wearing your t-shirt – such a great cause.

    Love the shirt and the cause. As a mom who breastfed, I was fortunate to never encounter any negative comments (or even looks, that I was aware of) when I had to feed my son in public – though I did use a nursing cover, but for my own comfort, not the publics. Our society needs to get over its sensitivity to breasts, particularly when they are doing what they were mean to do: nourish life. Here’s another for beach days: https://thetatatop.com

    For a while in NYC, it’s been quite legal to go about topless. Arrests haven’t happened in a while, I am certain of that. I have seen women walking topless near police officers and very public places. I still don’t understand why this is such a taboo and making women feel ashamed of it. It’s ridiculous.
