Women photoshop male nipples over their own to take a stand against boob censorship on social media

Annoyed with having their topless photos removed from Instagram and Facebook, women are now photoshopping ‘acceptable’ male nipples over their own.

 
 

Last June Artist Micol Hebron posted an image of a male nipple for women to use to make their topless photos “acceptable for the interwebs”.

“Use this ‘acceptable nipple template’, duplicate, resize, and paste as needed, to cover the offending female nipples, with socially acceptable male nipples (like a digital pasty). You’re welcome.”

Instagram says that it does not allow nudity including: Photos, videos, and some digitally-created content that show sexual intercourse, genitals, and close-ups of fully-nude buttocks, some photos of female nipples, but photos of post-mastectomy scarring and women actively breastfeeding are allowed.

Facebook restricts “some images of female breasts if they include the nipple” but always allows “photos of women actively engaged in breastfeeding or showing breasts with post-mastectomy scarring”.

Hebron’s acceptable male nipple has gone viral and been photoshopped over many topless photos of women.
