Breast obsession


Some reactions to UMF student Andrea Simoneau’s top-free walks are (pardon me) over the top (Sun Journal, April 15). In particular: “I’m concerned for children and families. It’s a family-value issue and it is inappropriate.”

The complainer must tell us at once and specifically how women’s breasts harm children. Reference to unsupported prejudice is not allowed, nor such phrases as “I don’t want my kids to see that” or “I have the right not to be offended.”

I find it inappropriate to demean women, deny them equal rights, and shame children into believing women’s breasts are evil. Doesn’t America have enough breast obsession and body phobia?
