'Genderless Nipples' Is Challenging Instagram's Sexist Nudity Policy

Is it male or female? And why does it matter?

Why is it considered inappropriate for a woman's bare nipples to be visible while men can show their nipples and face no consequences? That's the question one Instagram account is forcing the site to answer, one picture at a time.

For ages, Instagram and other social media websites have enforced policies that ban photos featuring any visible nipples on women, while the same rules aren't enforced when it comes to the male body. Typically, photos featuring women's bare nipples are flagged and removed, but the Instagram account Genderless_Nipples is trolling Instagram in the most epic way: by collecting and posting photos of nipples that are taken from so close up that it's nearly impossible to tell whether the nipple belongs to a man or a woman.

"Dear Instagram, why don't you try and figure out which nipples you can and cannot delete?" they wrote in a post. "Good luck!"

Gender equality isn't a women's issue. It's a human issue. It affects all of us!

The account has been fighting the good fight to free the nipple since December, and even had one of their photos of a man's nipple removed by the site for allegedly violating the no-nudity policy.

"Instagram, you can't even tell the difference between male and female nipples; who could!?" they wrote. "So why even bother banning female nipples if they can be so similar?"

Agree with their mission? Then join the fight and submit your own pics!
