Madonna reposted the photos taken from Instagram, but this time with a red heart instead of her nipple. “It still amazes me that we live in a culture where nipple viewing isn’t allowed. As if that’s the only part of the female body that can arouse sexual feelings. Can’t a man’s nipple be considered sexy?” said Madonna under her pictures.
Female nipples that appear on social media platforms such as Facebook and Instagram will be removed. There are exceptions where a female nipple may be posted online, according to Facebook and Instagram policies. When it comes to breastfeeding, childbirth, health-related situations or as a protest measure, female nipples are allowed.
Reactions to posting a nipple on social media:
On Twitter, Ingrid also questions why a male nipple is allowed.
Dia thinks Facebook is showing more and more narrow-mindedness.
Judith wonders why videos depicting cruelty to animals are allowed to be shared, while nipple isn’t.
