Tit for Tat













Is this documenary "Free the Nipple" SFW?  Hey, it's for women rights, right?

... for political reasons?

Is going topless in a music video a cheap grab at publicity, a political expression, or both?

Rose McGowan is the latest woman to go naked up top in a music video, joining the likes of singer Miley Cyrus (“Wrecking Ball”) and model Emily Ratajkowski (“Blurred Lines”) in stripping down to next-to-nothing.

... And like Cyrus and Ratajkowski, McGowan says her bare breasts are sending a political message.

“I believe in civil disruption. I also think it’s important for bodies to be represented in a non-sexual manner, especially women’s bodies,” she told the online magazine Nowness.

It’s not the first time McGowan has made headlines standing up for what she sees as blatant sexism. In June she was dumped by her agent for criticizing the revealing outfit she said she was asked to wear in an Adam Sandler film. McGowan said the sexual double standard had gotten so bad, she was giving up acting for music because the latter industry was so male-dominated.

“Imagine, its predominantly men whose scripts get done so it was mostly a male voice coming out of my mouth for 15 years,” she said.

Cyrus has also cited political reasons for her frequent nudity, specifically aligning herself with the “Free The Nipple” campaign, which boasts a full-length feature film, and calls itself a movement to empower women against “female oppression and censorship.” [Full Hoot]

These women are deep, man.  I need to know who they endorse for president.  That's what I need.

I'm reminded of the old variation on "How do I get to Carnegie Hall?":

"Can you tell me how to get to the Playboy Mansion?"

"Well, first of all, you have to have really great tits!"

Some should be free, some, not so much.

Ron in Ohio sez:
Too bad she had all of those disgusting tattoos! I kept forwarding it to get away from the inked-on distraction. The video didn't get interesting until after the 19 minute mark.

I don't get it. Women are allowed full frontal nudity in movies but not men. Shouldn't she be politically correct to fight for "Free the Junk"?
No. Didn't watch the video because the whole idea is stupid. I want the 50's family back dag nabit.

OMG! That is hilarious and is causing uproarious laughter. Thanks Boss!

Juice said...

Have not watched Blue Bloods (Tom Selleck). Are sausages on display there?

Juice, Blue Bloods offers Family Values and gratuitous violence as well as a great cast. Its what NYFC ought to be instead of the toilet that it presently is.
