At least it feels like the campaign to liberate female nipples on social networks is as old as Instagram itself. Now Kylie Jenner is once again pouring oil on the fire of the discussion. It will be difficult to prove that she committed a violation.
"Free the Nipple" - this is the motto under which women have been campaigning against what they consider to be outdated stigmatization of the female breast on Facebook, Instagram and Co. Finally, the networks immediately ban footage of women showing nipples. In the case of photos or videos of men, on the other hand, this naturally plays no role, in line with social tradition.
Is it a sign of emancipation when women can unreservedly present themselves topless? This question can certainly be debated at length. And the answer to that is likely to be quite different for old-school feminists like Alice Schwarzer than it is for Kylie Jenner, for example.
The millionaire entrepreneur and half-sister of Kim Kardashian is now pouring oil on the fire of the discussion on Instagram. She simply commented on one of her recent posts "Free the Nipple". In two published photos, the 24-year-old can be seen in front of a wall with sunglasses in the blazing sunlight.
In the two snapshots taken from a frog's perspective, the gaze inevitably immediately wanders to the bikini top that Jenner is wearing. After all, it's skin-colored and shows two recorded nipples just where Jenner's "real" nipples should be underneath.
Jenner shouldn't actually be violating the network's guidelines. After all, only the despicable appearance rules here. Instagram therefore lacks the arguments for deleting the post.
In any case, Jenner apparently hits the mark with , fans with , action. Within twelve hours, she received well over eight million likes for the post. "I almost thought they were real," commented one user with two laughing emojis. She may not have been the only one who felt this way.
