Australian Reality TV star Abbie Chatfield from the Bachelor and "I'm a Celebrity" has decided ENOUGH IS ENOUGH, at least when it comes to toplessness on Instagram, a cause we should all be getting behind, no matter what our politics are. One of those "this cannon divide the people, we are all on board for this", because it involves BOOBS.
These may not be the BOOBS that Adidas posted when trying to sell sports bras.
We believe women’s breasts in all shapes and sizes deserve support and comfort. Which is why our new sports bra range contains 43 styles, so everyone can find the right fit for them.

It is going viral because a corporate brand being Boob Activists when selling sports bra is really strange, even more strange is their intentional curated selection of boobs, that are for the most part pretty awful boobs, knowing that if they used hot boobs they'd be cancelled for being objectifying towards women, while being objectifying towards women.
So when you use unconventional, middle of the road, lunch lady boobs, you can spin it as empowering, not bullying, because to me it is making a mockery of these "before" pics on the breast implant section of a plastic surgery site.
It's true, not all boobs are created equally, which doesn't mean we hate the boobs, but we do hate that marketing has finally allowed for nudity, and this is what they do with it.
It is almost condescending towards the boobs, saying sports bras fit all kinds of boobs and I see it missing the mark in inclusivity and empowerment, it's almost as if they are using these people in their corporate interest, plus it is still objectifying women and reducing them to their breasts, only not in a good way, but activism doesn't need to make sense.
Anyway, this activist, who wrote this caption to her topless picture:
Reasons 2 be topless at the beach!!!!! (If u want to, but pls remember sunscreen x)
1. Swimming with free titties is the best feeling in the world
2. No sand in bikini top
3. Paparazzi can’t sell photos of a “wardrobe malfunction”
4. It’s hot
5. It’s freeing
6. You can hear people having conversations about it as you walk past them, we love a conversation starter!
7. Nipples do NOT need to be sexualised. See: male presenting ppl
Can IG pls allow nipples I’m sick of this x
Forgot to post the UNCENSORED version, you know the one that would make the activism make sense, since censoring her own breasts is just following the rules, while complaining about the rules, and fully baiting me into doing this post thinking there would be FULL boob on instagram in protest. I've been clicking refresh hoping the stars disappear and that I wasn't misled by the article I got this story from. So far, no nipples have been seen.
It's all so disappointing, but let's hope the coverage she gets from this leads to her officially releasing the hounds!
