Every single one in the whole wide world loves boobies but hardly anyone is flashing them enough. Why? Well, it’s a big question.
Ask yourself, does keeping all the marimbas hidden actually help anything? And when real ones do come out to jubble about playfully on a social media feed, what is the general response? After the initial stare, I would guess a bunch of people would say/think, “Oh sure, display your titties to get attention.” Hmmm. Or would a more common reaction be something like, “Oh look, those kalamazoos are paving a new way for considering the woman’s body in media.” Unlikely the latter huh. This is kind of a shame.
There are a lot of questions to juggle about this issue. Hehehe. I mean, I can’t even really be that mature talking about it. Seriously though, is the sheer act of covering up breasts warping what society thinks about them? When they are publicly visible can people even handle it? Is it therefore a common reaction to undervalue the content, author and owner of the fine rangoons in question? Do we generally see the boobie-flash as empowering, or something less than? Are women lumped with the consequences of it all?
As a sad result of this controversy, the relevance of tits n arse has been almost stamped out of contemporary conversation between women and the result is, we are left with guys telling us how it should all go down. Guys don’t even have muchachas! I don’t want to blow things out of proportion… hehehe… but I think this is especially prevalent in social media scenes. This one sided conversation is a little unfair I think. Grrls gotta step it up.
Carmen Incarnadine sent me her brand new music video, which just happens to also be of her milk-shakin’ about in a g-string and I won’t lie, it’s a turn on, in an impersonal “oh look, boobies. Real ones. Awesome.” -fleeting kind of way. However the bigger picture still overwhelms, Incarnadine is a talented songwriter. This is her most important asset. I have personally bought her music before and will continue to enjoy her art as long as she keeps making it well. She is one of the few female vocalists who actually influences almost everyone around her and who actually questions boundaries for real. I see her absolutely no differently post mammie-flash, initial turn on or not. So wtf is the big deal?
There are amazing and clever women like Labanna Babalon talking about it, but off the very top of my head I do struggle to come up with other female musicians challenging the gender question in this particular way. It has (finally and thankfully) become awesome for male musicians to blur gender-roles as an offshoot to dismantling hate-talk on sexual orientation (Mykki Blanco, Ssion) or for images of fetish, androgyny and experimentation to surface as a point of interest and discussion thanks to blogs like Blam Blam Fever – but the fact remains; it is often only guys making the statements. How do women actually feel about showing off their pretty puppies? Is the pressure of pontoon perfection (thanks largely to censorship in the first place) to look a certain way just too high for women to risk showing the world what they’ve got? Or is it purely the censorship debate that disrupts the flow of information? The so called powers that be say keep the kazongas behind closed doors, it’s the law. Should it be?
Do you think guys are the only ones who ponder size and shape? Are guys the only ones who talk about measurements? Noooope. Let me get around to the point. It is time to set the boobies free. If society on a whole can finally let go of the fun-bag affliction, it might just open some healthy dialogue and that scary thing might happen – change. Who knows what other public conversations will arise!- Theway Peoplestare
