    Apparently some people think that it's unfair that men can go topless and expose their nipples in public but women can't.

    In my honest opinion I agree with the status quo, some people may say its a double standard but some double standards are necessary. What do you think?

    Why is this double standard in particular 'necessary?'

    As a girl I wouldn't think it's appropriate to show other people (guys or girls) my nipples for no apparent reason but that's mostly because I'm kinda shy x
    Also, I wouldn't wanna see other girls' nipples because I think it's kinda gross x :/

    Mens nipples are made up of the same tissue as womens, I think it's great. If you wanna show em off, show em! If you wanna keep them covered that's cool too! Let people be as they wanna be, different things liberate different people. Personally, I love getting topless on beach when its hot hot hot. I see guys with bigger boobs than mine.

    It is necessary because it is one of the characteristics that differentiate men and women.

    I don't think it should make any difference who has their nipples out and when. Unless they're afraid of the recently pregnant attacking them with milk cannons.

    To be honest, I don't think they should be legally obligated to hide their nipples in public. But I don't really care that much.

    The problem is that women are far more sexualised than men, and breasts are one of the most sexualised parts of a women so ofc it ludacrious for people to say "men show their nipples, why can't women"

    I think their campaign should be supported. The only difference I think in that saying it should be acceptable for a woman to be topless where a man can be, i would probably want men to cover up more often.
