"It is illegal for women to go topless in most cities, yet you can buy a magazine of a woman without her top on at any 7-11 store. So, you can sell breasts, but you cannot wear breasts, in America."
Violet Rose (via c-icatrix)
This is one of my favorite quotes about sexualization/objectification vs autonomy of female bodies bc it’s so succinct
Men can’t very well walk around with their dicks flopping about, yet 7-11 probably has a magazine for that too. It’s just common decency that people don’t walk around naked. Just because you can buy Playboy/girl at 7-11 does not mean society has set a double standard for female nudity. All it means is that there are people who’d rather not see naked people everywhere.
