OMG A BLURRY BOOB
OH MY GOD AMERICA.
Ok, you know what, we all have nipples. 50% of the world has fucking tits, ok?? So just because theres a boob in a magazine does not mean that the whole world is going to fucking explode.
UGHHHH. They are tits. Get the fuck over it.
Ok, so she is like 17 (a year older than the year of consent over UK-way and a year less than the age of consent in the US). But why does that even matter? this picture has a blurry boob. You can barely make anything out. And there is a furore over the fact that it got published??
I don't want to harp on about how insanely liberal the UK is in comparison, but we have a (admittedly really crap) newspaper here which publishes a different topless girl every day on page three. We had a whole ad campaign in which Sophie Dahl's boobs were on display. Um... boobs aren't SUCH A big deal here I suppose.
To secretify something so ubiquitous in humanity is to fetishise it. Which, ugh, I know, I know, boobs are sexy. But come ON, that picture is hardly going to give someone, paedo or no, a boner. There is wayyy too much to delve into with this but I don't know where to begin, and I have stuff to do. But still! Come ON!
