Here is the actual original post that started the Facebook problems with us uberboobers.
I’ll stop talking about it now.

Is there an “American Apparel ads creep me out” group on Facebook? I’d join that!

Wow. There it is in stark contrast — the “meat” version and the “milk” version. I’m sorry, but everything is sad about the photo on the left (including the degradation of the young model, body and soul), and everything is beautiful about the one on the right. Thanks for bringing us back to the root of this. I joined the protest group, and I’m glad. Someone has to bring attention to the ridiculousness of this. Thanks Amy…

Roxane B Salonen and the liberal use of absolutes.
Everything is sad about a beautiful topless women and everything is awesome about another topless women toughening up her nipples and looking notch her carbon footrint up a few thousand points?

I let the trade paperback version of motherhood slide most of the time but come on!
Let’s not forget that ‘the beautiful journey’ all starts with naked people..

Be a mum. Be a militant, conscientious dissenter-type mum.
Be proud of being a mum.
But remember that it’s just a choice like any other (most of the time anyway:)

In response to Kiran, actually, what is most wrong about the woman on the left is that they have not shown nearly enough of her. She is not a one-dimensional image. She is a person with a soul. I only see the one dimension there, though. And the topless woman on the right isn’t topless at all, actually. I think you may have missed my point, but I don’t think saying much more will help. Still appreciative of Amy for bringing it all out in the open. By the way, I agree, nothing wrong with a naked body. We all do start there and that is a beautiful thing.
