10 Let’s say that the shape of the breast will be ugly and be pointing down(un-lifted) in braless women. What I want to say is, that’s not a big matter. Because woman’s worth is not decided by their breasts. Maybe women are captured in lots obsession with having a perfect body. Also, breast is not just for sexual purposes. The article, “Wearing a Bra Should Be a Personal Choice and Not a Social Norm”, also claimed a similar thing. In the article, they 8 MORRIS HARVEY, "France Debates the Merits of the Bra," The New York Times, April 11, 2013. 9 "Health Update - Pros and Cons of Wearing a Bra," in KTAR NEWS, April 30, 2013, . 10 ibid.

6 said that women’ breasts have been connected with the symbol of women’s youth or their beauty. 11 They mentioned that “It is a safe generalization that many women wear bras with the intention of preserving the shape of their breasts and/or to stop them from sagging.” The woman who was the sagged breast is considered as not having a beautiful body. And sadly, most of the rule and stereotypes are created by males. The elastic strap with a clasp of brazier was invented by author, Mark Twain. Since he saw that his wife was struggling with wearing a bra, he recalled the idea of making comfortable and easy brazier that his wife could wear. Even though at that time, it wasn’t a successful invention, women are wearing adjustable and detachable elastic strap universally, without doubt just because of the reason that it has been tradition. 12 In 2015, Instagram censored and removed photographs of women's nipples, and users responded with a hashtag called "#Thisisamalenipple". When the female body was sexually objectified with Instagram’s censoring, Instagram users pointed out that "This photograph is male's nipple, so try to remove it or not”. It was a kind of caricature movement. But surprisingly, all the posts with this hashtag were not censored by Instagram. Facebook, Instagram, and influential media are free to disseminate unethical videos, but a lot of women’s bodies are censored and evaluated. The body that meets the (male’s) standard is welcomed, but the body with the woman’s freedom is being a subject to be censored. Not only in the media, but also in society, they are too strict about women's 11 Akilah S.

7 bodies. Do you think that naked Amazon primitive people from the Amazon documentary program are making you embarrassed when they are appearing with their breasts without brazier? Do you caring when they have relatively sagged breasts? If you do, take off the bra- strap that is holding your waist tightly and let yourself breath! It will be free from the corset of gaze which is suppressing yourself.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
