petapledger Dita Von Teese
P: Unknown (image via Pinterest)

This is the stunning photo of Dita Von Teese I posted last night. As her nipples could be seen through her mesh top (I reluctantly covered them for this post), the image was reported and removed.

I have reached a point in my life where I am fed up with the fact that male nipples, a part of the human body that have no use are able to be shown on social media, but female nipples - a part of the human body designed to feed an infant are not.
Women's breasts are not offensive - a woman's entire body is not 'offensive''. The very notion of it is archaic and oppressive. It is time more discussion is had about this issue online.

  •   doktapore I can't believe someone actually reported it! Someone actually went "you know what, I am offended by this" and took the time to go through the reporting process. If you are reading this, whoever you are, you're a freaking douche prude!!! Get over yourself! I agree with your statement @petapledger 5d
  •   _miglet_ Well said!! 🏼 @petapledger 5d
  •   petapledger Thank you @_miglet_ and @doktapore . I don't want my sons to grow up with the same antiquated beliefs that our generation did. 5d
  •   kissthecats I just bloody knew that was going to happen when you posted it yesterday . People really need to get a life and start being offended by inequality (and the other million far more important "offensive" things in our society) 5d

petapledger The photo of Dita Von Teese I posted last night was removed by Instagram because it is considered 'unsafe'. Women's breasts covered in a mesh top are against IG's community guidelines, but images of women bound and gagged, or being dragged by their hair are not.
I understand that the women consent to be in that genre of photography, but I also question what sort of message we are conveying to both the broader community and young people when we deem women's nipples, the body part whose primary function is to nourish an infant, are offensive?

petapledger Navy blue and white striped 'Frankie' tops have almost sold out. I only have size 12 and 14 in stock. Made in Australia using a viscose/spandex that feels lovely to wear, this top looks great worn tucked in or not. #petapledger #madeinaustralia #nautical #striped #rockabilly #kustomkulture #pinup #retro #boatneck #maternitytop #stretchy #stripes 6d

petapledger Gold foil denim 'Lula' miniskirts are now available from my online store!
Buy this skirt and feel like you're hanging out at a roller disco.

Buy this skirt and you'll hear the song Gold by Spandau Ballet in your head all day (not guaranteed this will happen).

Thank you for the inspiration, @betsyj ! #lula #miniskirt #mini #gold #madeinaustralia #madeinmelbourne #handmade #petapledger #gold #denim
