After a Toblerone, pyjama and Danish murder mystery based Christmas hiatus, B4J is back and ready for another year of boob justice, bra reviews, and the rest. But before we launch in to whatever treats 2013 has in store for us I’d like to take a pause and make a small resolution for 2013…. Can we make 2013 the year we get over boobs?
Before you rush to inspect my addled brains for sign of Swiss chocolate haemorrhage, let me explain. Breasts are brilliant. Not only are they fun, they look great in a balconette AND can deploy vast quantities of exactly the nutrition a newborn baby needs without a recipe. Breasts are something to be celebrated, cherished, respected, checked routinely, and generally loved – and B4J will continue to be here for them.
But we – and by we, I mean a lot of people that probably aren’t the sort of people who read Busts 4 Justice – have a bizarre and increasingly tedious obsession with boobs that does nothing but flood the Internet with great tomes of writing each and every day whilst simultaneously grossing me out in the process. Miley Cyrus’s bra size is not news. Emma Watson’s side boob is not news. Taylor Swift’s bra strap is definitely not news. PEOPLE, THIS ISN’T NEWS!
The worst thing is, it’s just flat out creepy. As a society don’t we generally believe that someone following very young women, obsessively staring at their breasts and speculating about their underwear/bra size is an acceptable thing. In fact the consensus is that that would be gross, inappropriate and sinister, and probably worthy of a restraining order of some description. I think the world would be an infinitely better – and safer – place if we made a collective resolution not to put up with these creepers any more.
I’ll probably give up Toblerone for a bit too.
Who’s with me?
Happy New Year to my lovely readers – please let me know if you have any requests for Busts 4 Justice in 2013. I’m hoping to make this year better than ever xx
