To The Daily Sun,
Free the Nipple and body-freedom campaigns are designed to make the human body and body parts normal and natural. The only way this will happen is for people like Heidi to make it a normal and natural part of daily life.
Is it mentally or physically healthy to be ashamed of the natural body? Is it equal for allowing the showing men's boobs (moobs) and not women's or the same line of reasoning to pay men more than women for equal work? Is Heidi's sensitivity to the issue any more or less valid than Marie's sensitivity to safe drinking water? Are breasts really sexual at all?
Doesn't body freedom touch on other issues like censorship (corporate media and Facebook frequently censor female breasts) or do we like censorship? Should the government or church really be dictating what we can wear or not wear, or should we be micromanaged? What harm would be befall a child who sees a nude/top-free adult? (In fact, all psychological studies show children raised around nudity have a more realistic body consciousness and image. Also, they are better adjusted.)
Plus, undeniably, on a nice day, it's way more comfortable and fun to not wear clothes than wear clothes. Or should we be against harmless happiness and fun?
