– I repost the photos that Instagram removed without warning or message. The reason they stated to my management, which does not handle my account, was that a small part of my nipple was exposed, Madonna writes on Instagram.
Furthermore, she expresses frustration that we still live in a culture that allows every part of the female body to be shown, except for the nipples.
Decades of censorship
– As if it is the only part of a woman’s anatomy that can be sexualized. The nipple that nourishes the baby! writes Madonna.
Furthermore, she writes, asking if a man’s nipple can also be perceived as erotic.
– And what about a woman’s ass, which is never censored anywhere. Thank you for allowing me to maintain my sanity through four decades of censorship, sexism, old age and misogyny, writes Madonna.
– Perfectly timed with the lies we have been brought up to believe about the pilgrims who peacefully broke bread with the Indians when they landed on Plymouth Rock! God bless America, she continues.
The fans react
While many fans praise the superstar for sharing this, there are also more who react and think her pictures are too sexualized.
– It’s about context. Now the way you set up the exposed nipple was sexualized. It is very different from a mother who feeds her child. But you knew it, and did it to get attention, there is one who writes.
– They have tried since the beginning to knock you down, without being aware that it ends up making you stronger and stronger! You rise above everything, my love, there is another who writes.
