The New York Post recently published a piece that would lead some to believe boobs were once unpopular in America.
The piece is titled, “Boobs are back in a big way,” and it left me with way more questions than it answered.
The article reads in part:
Last week Rihanna risked bursting out of her voluminous red dress at the UK premiere of “Valerian And The City of a Thousand Planets” as she hiked up her lady lumps, giving the crowds an eyeful.
And what a sight to behold it was.
If you’ve got boobs, then don’t be ashamed of them. Be proud of them.
This year’s biggest trend at the Glastonbury music festival in the UK wasn’t the usual denim shorts, but instead “glitterboobs” were seen all over the festival as women decorated their chests with sequins and gems to make a style statement — and it worked.
A big-boob movement is happening, and we should embrace it.
An uplifted chest means an uplifted mood, after all.
I’m not an expert. I can only speak for red-blooded men, but was there ever a point when boobs weren’t popular in a “big way?”
Had the author of this article never heard of Instagram? There are countless women on that social media platform who have gotten famous in large part due to their physical assets. This isn’t a new trend either. Playboy has been around for decades and made insane amounts of money on – you guessed it – boobs.
Pretending women who show off their chest are oppressed or not welcome in society is one of the hottest fake takes off all time. Boobs were never not popular, and they never will be unpopular as long as men live on this planet.
I can’t wait for the next New York Post think piece about how beer and football are finally popular again. Either way, I’m glad our great national tragedy of boobs not being popular is finally over.
I wasn’t sure men were going to be able to make it.
