Women Take On Body Censorship With Help From Male Nipples And Photoshop

Male nipples are having a moment, and it’s surprisingly all in the name of freeing the female body from censorship.

Last June, artist Micol Hebron posted an image of a male nipple on Facebook and suggested that women replace their nipples with the template to make them acceptable for social media.

TBT to that time, over a year ago (June 2014) that I posted an image of male nipple and told everyone to put it over…

The idea recently began to recirculate across social media, and women are using Photoshop to cover their bare breasts with male nipples. Though some photo-sharing platforms routinely remove women’s images in which their nipples are exposed, men’s topless photos are fair game.

Which provides an obvious solution:

According to Instagram’s community guidelines, “female nipples” are allowed in posts, but only in certain contexts.

The Free The Nipple movement, a campaign focused on the general censorship of women’s nipples, also urged women to upload images and replace their offending lady areolae with virtual male nipple stickers. Free The Nipple advocates for equal rights for men and women as well as the right to comfortably breastfeed in public. It spreads its mission through social media and a film (aptly titled “Free The Nipple”) that “follows a group of young women who take to the streets of New York City topless, to protest the archaic censorship laws in the United States.”

Singer Courtney Love shared her support for the campaign with an Instagram post recalling Hebron’s idea and challenging the photo-sharing platform’s guidelines.

Other celebrities to get behind Free The Nipple include Miley Cyrus and Lena Dunham. Most recently, Chrissy Teigen had NSFW photos from a W Magazine photo shoot taken down and responded with another topless pic and a strategically placed hairspray bottle.

Whether it’s a hairspray bottle or a male nipple, covering female nipples is easy. But if the Free The Nipple movement and its supporters have anything to do with it, it will soon be unnecessary.

In The Wake Of ‘The Interview,’ A Brief Look At America’s Film Censorship Through The Years

As we’re bombarded with developments surrounding Sony Pictures’ decision to cancel the release of “The Interview” in the wake of terrorism threats, we’re reminded of America’s long history with film censorship — one that, thankfully, doesn’t often rear its head anymore. Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg’s comedy stars Rogen and James Franco as journalists ordered to assassinate North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un after landing a rare interview with him. It’s an (almost) unheard-of case of executives electing to pull a movie; historically, it took a court order to strong-arm studios into cutting their losses over a controversial project. This is, after all, an entertainment industry that operated under the Motion Picture Production Code (aka the Hays Code), which regulated what could be seen onscreen from 1930 to 1968. That set of regulations brought about an onslaught of imbroglios over what did and didn’t violate standards. We’ve compiled a list of several movies that act as precursors to the censorship questions being raised with the “Interview” controversy. It only skims the surface of film restrictions in American history, but it’ll give you an idea of some of the battles filmmakers and distributors have faced over the years.
