Breast Cancer Self-Exams, @Lou0506 & Covered Nudity Continued

First off a very serious topic that I want everyone to please follow up on.  This is from the CDC's own website:  "Aside from non-melanoma skin cancer, breast cancer is the most common cancer among women in the United States"

Please read that last quote again and keep it in mind.  If you are a woman, please check yourself regularly.  If you aren't sure how, ask your doctor or google it... there are tons of online references to help.  If you are a man, please ensure the ladies you love are doing their own exams regularly... or even help them out from time-to-time.  ;-)

We all know people affected by breast cancer and a number of organizations (which I will not name cuz I'm not sure they'd appreciate being called out in an adult blog) are working hard daily in the fight against it.  But early detection and treatment are still the biggest weapons we have in our arsenal.  So please, do it often -- monthly is the recommended interval. 

If you use twitter you can increase awareness by please promoting the #BoobieWed and #BoobieWednesday hash tags.

OK.  So now let's take a look at @LOU0506.

My dear readers, Louise is not showing her bare nipple nor her areloae.  There is no implicit innuendo or overture hinting at sex. She's not groping or fondling her breasts.

It's simply a picture of the naked torso of a beautiful lady with hand preserving her modesty.

This is a darn near perfect "covered nudity" shot and it's made even better by the fact that it's one woman, taking one self-pic, in her own non-studio environment.

In a word, when I see this @Lou0506 photo, the thought that pops into my mind is simply "beautiful".

Yes the bottoms of her boobies are on display with their magnificent artful curvature for all to see.  Who the hell gives a damn!?  This isn't pornography!  Yet this very picture was pulled from Louise's image server host within 15 MINUTES of posting for violating T&Cs.

If you see this pic and think indecent or pornography, it would only be because you're mind is geared to think that way.  If you are one of the people that views this photo and, shall we say, is "aroused", I'm going to guess you might also view a picture of a woman in a bra in a mail-order mechandise catalog and think the same thoughts....  Am I right?  You KNOW I am.

You sir (or madam) are simply a pervert.  And that's fine, I have no real problem with perverts.  Horniness makes the world go round (in a sense).  But because a few people may find this picture provocative in the same way as an underwear sales flyer... it derserves to be pulled from image servers as somehow dirty or inappropriate?  There is ABSOLUTELY nothing inappropriate about this picture.  It is pure art.

Wake up and smell the coffee.  This picture is celebration of the beauty of the female form.  Yes it's certainly sexy and attention gettting, but it's also clean and PERFECTLY appropriate.

Look, woman have breasts.  It's just a simple fact of nature.  They're very important in the whole species survival thingy.... Oh yeah I know not quite as much now, but in ancient history you'd certainly want to have plenty of them around to feed the children.  And I'm pretty sure our cavemen ancestor's weren't running around telling the ladies to put the puppies away.  Those same cavemen also weren't thumbing through Sears' catalogs to get their jollies.  Back then Sears hadn't branched out to mail order yet.  They only had the ride-through window service.

But back on topic.  We should be thanking woman like Louise for helping draw attention to the breast cancer awareness cause by posting shots like these and we should be promoting them not censoring them.

And even in a vacuum, not associated with a cause such as breast cancer awareness, this picture still is perfectly fine.  I would not mind having this shot hanging on a wall in my apartment for display as art. 

Yes it IS definitely sexy.  That is not the debate.  Sexy is fine.  Sexy is good.  Most everybody LOVES sexy.  But it IS NOT indecent.

If you want indecent, I can show you dozens of photos published in magazines of women wearing tight tops, no bras where their whole tits, nipples and all, are quite visible.  But they're celebrities and technically they are wearing clothes, so that's OK then. 

Also, I can show you dozens more pictures of women wearing bottoms so friggin tight they not are only showing camel toes, but the toe-jam between them as well (uh, eww).  Again, as long as there is some fabric there, society says OK.

But Louise's covered nudity shot... no that's indecent.  I call bullshit and I don't think I'm alone in this opinion.


P.S.  If you are one of the people that does in fact think this shot is indecent or pornographic, I respect you're differing opinion.  But instead of reading this blog, shouldn't you be busy starting or joining a cause... to say, petition getting a pair of underpants put on to Michelangelo's David?

P.P.S. If you're a Twitter user give @LOU0506 some love by following her.  We've already established she's a damn sexy lady, but she's also witty, kind, and funny too.
