Real life vs Societal expectations
Yeah, news flash people, boobs generally only look “perky” while in a bra. A few are super lucky and have naturally perky boobs, most don’t. And this is because, SURPRISE, boobs are intended to feed babies and it’s hard for a baby being cradled in mum’s arm to reach a nipple that’s on the other side of the boob from where its mouth is.
Think of a soda fountain machine. The spouts are all pointing down, right? So you can put soda in a cup being held under the spout? If the spout was sticking straight out, it would be really hard to get a soda out of it.
Babies need to be able to reach a nipple easily so they can eat. Ergo, nipples are usually lower and angled more downward on a naturally hanging boob, both so it’s easier for a baby to reach and so gravity can do its part in pulling milk toward the nipple.
So there you go, outright ANATOMICAL proof that boobs are not there for the benefit of men.
Thank you for that. I never realized. Thanks.
Here’s a fun thing you learn when you study literature: the western canon is not universally beloved. Those books are not the Truth any more than the New York Post is skilled journalism. The main reason they’re held in such high esteem is because they were written by boring white dudes with rage fantasies and boring white dudes with rage fantasies also happen to be largely in charge of deciding which books are deemed classics and taught forever in the American school system.
So if your boyfriend tells you he loves Kerouac then you tell your boyfriend Kerouac was a fucking second rate hack who wrote Beat style because he didn’t have the skill or talent to write any other way, which is probably also why he just copied every adolescent male wanderlust story since the beginning of time. That shit’s derivative and boring.
"They phoned their other friends from the good old days and told them that their new discovery, Harrison Bond, was exactly like them too. He went to a corporate graduate school to which his parents signed over an additional $80,000, and there he had even more influential teachers who looked like him. It was a world of people who looked in the mirror and thought it was the window. This higher tier of teachers phoned their agents and editors, who also looked, walked, talked, lived, and wrote like Bond. He drank with them. His book was like theirs. When the publisher bought it, he paid him back the amount of his two tuitions. That kept the money circulating in the right places. By this time the other guys from the same school had taken over the major magazines and newspapers. They reviewed his book favorably, with gravitas, and wrote feature stories about his gravitas as well. He became known for his gravitas. Americans did not resemble Harrison and his cronies, but they were used to following orders from people like him, so they did what they were told and bought the book.”
