Someone just posted on their facebook status about how they HATE that one day they’ll have to explain to (their now infant) son why a lady on TV is taking her shirt off.
OK LADY, I see how this may be a problem for you. I hate having to explain what’s going on on the TV to people too. Let me help you out! Here is what you should tell your son.
"Hey son, you know how you are allowed to go topless at the beach, the pool, and other places without consequence? Well, we have been taught that women are not allowed because we have, as a society, sexualized and demonized a woman’s body. I know you see pictures of breasts everywhere, but they are covered by BRAS and BATHING SUITS. So they’re ok! They’re also shown in a sexual way, so we know what we’re getting ourselves into and that is accepted by society. However, to be completely nude is absolutely appalling and unacceptable because we have been TOLD that a women’s body is shameful and we are not to see it as something other than an object. So the only reason I have to EXPLAIN why this lady is taking her shirt off on TV is because of these reasons."
