dumbassfils replied to your post: anonymous said:I think it sort of…

maybe its something to do with the development of patriarchal societies that more rigidly delineated childbirth, breastfeeding, domesticity from public life it becomes a hidden private thing that can be used as a canvas for projecting fantasy

bug u are so smart and heading in the right direction i think

UFO will Take a Nurse to the Sinned Planet

and like breast cancer awareness’ most successful strategy has been to appeal to the sexualization of breasts

like that’s kinda crazy

not “save someone’s mom” or “save someone’s daughter” but “save the tatas”

We want big boob…. not too big, gross

we like small perky boob… not too little, gross

no don’t get fake ones!!!! gross!

oh your boobs are just like…hanging there…grosss…

and also…… every boob is just so dang sexy like i can’t see a mom giving an infant milk or my boner will rupture right through my chinos

and the way that american boobs are sexualized is so funny (and by funny i mean stupid) because there’s an ideal size and diameter and bounce ratio lmao

I think it sort of initially was a fertility thing (boobs being important in general) and then yeah as certain societies developed they became fetishized and sexualized? that's at least how i've always known it

yea it’s just weird and interesting

because afaik, in some (many?) cultures breasts will have a connection to fertility and reproduction but the mere sight of them won’t necessarily be sexual even tho they have a connection to the sexual process somewhere

Planet Earth is weird, human being, weird

brain weird

body weird

i Wonder if boobs were never a sexual thing until the development of certain societies or civilizations where some dudes were into it as like some kind of repressed childhood thing (maybe as far back as romans* but maybe as recent as pre-freud ?? the extent to which the modern boob has been sexualized)

because there’s not necessarily a reason why breasts are sexual other than “they contain nerve endings” which, so do the soles of feet, which a small number of people find attractive

other than some kind of infant memory combined with nerve endings and some kinda development in a geopolitical thing EH?

what could be the reason

they’re teats basically

and p much everyone everyone has nipples

and the fattier ones are sexualized ?

hmm hmm hmm

*i’m thinking also of some old scroll paintings so like not just Western culture but what is the thing at the root of it and could it be changed? to just another thing containing nerves, like several other points on the body?

that poetry that i reblogged earlier is great but it’s also from a very advanced 1st  grader like that is some very impeccable handwriting for a 5-6 year old kid

anyway all kid art is divine, so sez me and lynda barry

*glances at husband like this*

I think it's incredibly altruistic of you to always answer people's questions and I hope that if you ever find yourself at a loss for what to do in a certain situation that you have someone to help you the way you help your followers.

Hiya Gowns! I need some love advising. I just got out of a long term relationship/my first real relationship, and something exciting/romantic started sparking up as I was ending this first relationship. In a nutshell, this new thing involved my ex's best childhood friend, which was really ethically awful but something I felt totally genuinely about. However we both cared about my ex still so we agreed to try to keep things platonic. We failed miserably at that for awhile and then all of a sudden
