So in case you missed it, everybody’s trying to “free the nipple” as of late. From Miley Cyrus, to Kendall Jenner, to most recently, Chrissy Teigen, apparently girls just wanna have their nipples free.
I mean, I don’t blame em. I loathe bras. There’s nothing more fulfilling than coming home, whipping your bra off and tossing it into the dirty clothes hamper. Bye bye bra! No more oppression for YOU today!
But I must admit, I don’t think I’d be willing to flaunt my nips out in public. That’s taking it a step too far for me. (Though I don’t knock the ladies who do) Some women are tired of not being able to show off their nips in public and they are taking a stand!

“Did you know it’s illegal to be topless in 37 states, in some even if you’re just exposing your nipple to breastfeed? In New York City, in 1992 it became legal for women to be topless in public, but the police continued to arrest women, so activist filmmakers took to the streets with cameras and a cast of women, but by the end of the production, Free The Nipple, says director Lina Esco, “had morphed into a real life revolution that transcended the bounds of mere entertainment. Famous graffiti artists, mobs of dedicated women, and celebrities from Miley Cyrus to Liv Tyler and Lena Dunham jumped on board and ignited a national media blitz that has transformed into a powerful movement to Free The Nipple in America.”

Then there’s this
This photo was later removed by Instagram for violating its community guidelines.
“We know that there are times when people might want to share nude images that are artistic or creative in nature, but for a variety of reasons, we don’t allow nudity on Instagram,” the policy reads. “It also includes some photos of female nipples, but photos of post-mastectomy scarring and women actively breastfeeding are allowed. Nudity in photos of paintings and sculptures is OK, too.”
But Chrissy isn’t giving up THAT easily. She says the nipple will make a return very soon.
the nipple has been temporarily silenced but she will be back, oh yes, she will be back
