    Unhappy Good Grief - Give Me A Break!

    This was in the local news....

    Nipples the latest agent of civilization's demise

    Misty Harris CanWest News Service Wednesday, June 01, 2005

    The good news is those weapons of mass destruction have finally been found.

    The bad news is your mother, sister, aunt, and grandma are all guilty of having them.

    Sixteen months after the Super Bowl's tempest in a C-cup, war has been declared on women's breasts. From Desperate Housewives' deployment of digital nipple-erasers to Victoria's Secret's nipple-negating bras, a campaign is underway to conceal one of the natural features of the female breast.

    The producers of TV's Desperate Housewives have reportedly spent thousands of dollars digitally removing nipples from on-screen images of actresses Teri Hatcher and Nicolette Sheridan.

    In discussing the show's co-called "nipple problem," series creator Marc Cherry tells the Philadelphia Daily News: "Certain actresses really don't like to wear bras. And we try to accommodate them as much as humanly possible ... So we've done a lot of blurring."

    A similar situation exists on the set of Vancouver Island-raised Pamela Anderson's new TV series, Stacked. In an April interview on Howard Stern's radio show, the actress complained that network censors ordered her nipples be "taped down" during filming so as not to offend prime-time audiences.

    The bizarre trend isn't limited to celebrity skin. According to a spokeswoman for Victoria's Secret, one of the biggest complaints from clients was "nipple show-through" in unlined bras. The response was Ipex, a bra with a contoured pad designed to prevent this problem from arising.

    Gary Grizzle, an associate professor of sociology at Florida's Barry University, says anti-nipple sentiments are steeped in the same notions that cause some religions to keep women covered up and out of holy places because a woman's "sexuality disrupts everything that men try to accomplish."

    It seems that this is pure bull****. We are dealing with humans who by nature cannot control this condition. It has been around since the begining of time. We are not able to control it and most people do not want to attempt to control it.

    Question...are we now going to require our pets to cover up when in public?

    Whats next?

    This whole thing is just plain stupid. I rarely bother with tv shows anymore because of the stupidity. Instead I hang out here. I quess anything for attention or publicity.

    Well personally I don't care one way or the other. I don't buy from Victoria Secrets as I find most of their stuff borish. (I said most!) Point is I will wear what I feel comfortable with and if some jerks or old farts don't like it to bad. I'm old enough to be a grandma around here and I wear the same clothes as my daughter and look dam good in them. So go away stupidity and let us dress our nipples as we please.
