Free the nipple

Like houses, belief systems have dark corners: patches of wallpaper where reality is showing through; awkward conceptual joins which leave gaps for mice; mouldering old ideas. Mostly we ignore them. Sometimes they get too obtrusive and make us very uncomfortable. This state of discomfort is called thinking.

So, great piece in the Guardian. The body is beautiful, fight repressive, image-policing patriarchy: #freethenipple! Pornography is sexist and demeaning: #boobsarentnews! I can't resolve this dilemma, but it is fun to watch.
